They have a lot of gluten free items available so I was super excited to give them a try… I’m still recovering a week later ☹ Im usually not super sensitive to a tiny bit of cross contamination, but I was very ill. My husband and I shared everything so I know it wasn’t a food borne illness. I hope this review spares someone else!
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
I am not very sensitive to occasional cross contamination and had a noticeable reaction after eating the Singapore noodles here that I ordered on Door Dash with an extra note to make them GF. They didn’t seem like they had soy sauce on them, so not sure what the issue was. Guess I can’t say for sure it was caused by eating here, but I didn’t eat out anywhere else. If you’re very sensitive, I’d make sure you can directly talk to a server before eating here.
One of my favorite restaurants I can go with my boyfriend and he can order food with gluten and I can order gf. Waitresses and staff are very knowledgeable and make me confident I can eat what I order.
So far, so good. I only ate here once but they understood celiac and I didn't get sick. I ordered Mei fun rice noodles.
Great gluten free menu. Waitress made me feel very comfortable about how they handle the food when someone orders something gluten free.
Ordered the "gluten free" Brussel Sprouts and they arrived with wheat coated onion flakes. I sent the item back as it was not gluten free. Then the next batch of Gluten Free Brussel sprouts arrived with 1" chunks of fried crispy spring roll wrappers....and hundreds of flakes of broken spring roll pieces in the Brussel Sprouts. Be very careful eating here...especially when ordering gluten free.
I agree with the other reviewer- if East Moon is going to act like they are gluten free friendly then they should do the walk!
I have had good luck with their appetizers but tried a lunch entrée today. I told my server that I have gluten allergies and asked what was served with the shrimp w/snow peas. She said just soup or salad so I chose the miso soup. When the entrée came it was belly up with a fried egg roll and fried rice which I had no reason to believe would be gluten free. She had it redone (I think re-plated), I ate 2 shrimp w/a few bites of white rice and the gut clench set in immediately. She gave me 1/2 price on the entrée that made me sick. I will pursue the matter in writing. If you're going to talk the talk you need to walk the walk! I hate to sound bitter but just once in awhile I wish my symptoms on those who have been so cavalier.
They have some great and tasty gf dishes like the shaking beef but I have had orders come for different foods that I didn't order at all more often than not both for deliveries and for eating in, which makes me distrust their gf protocols. If you like real coconut curry you will be disappointed with theirs as it's very much Asian fusion, not a true curry at all.
I was so glad to find this gem in Westminster. The staff was accommodating, verified ingredients with the kitchen staff, and made our gluten-free experience very tasty. Recommended!
This place is my husband and I's go to for GF fried rice and coconut curry.
Accommodating and works with you on gluten free
