I haven’t had Chinese takeout in over 5 years since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. This place is a game changer! I ordered the orange chicken with fried rice and it was delicious! Tasted just like I remember it. Waited until the following morning to write a review and didn’t get sick. They have a lot of other options such as Sesame and General Tso’s chicken. Their online menu indicates which items can be made gluten free (it’s $1 extra). When I picked up the food, the owner verified that my meal was gluten free and labeled the containers. Can’t wait to go back here and try something different!

I hadn’t had Chinese food for years before I found Fire Wok. I am so happy I finally found somewhere safe for celiacs. I’ve eaten here twice and haven’t gotten sick. The general tso’s chicken is awesome. It tastes exactly the way I remember pre-celiac.

I ❤ this place so much! I just moved to the Columbia, MD area, and this was one of the first places I tried. I have celiac and I can’t remember the last time I’ve eaten Chinese since I’ve been diagnosed. I have never gotten sick from eating here. Try the Mongolian beef! It’s so yummy!!!

Total game changer. I have celiac and I haven't gotten sick eating here. Food is delicious - my husband and I love it so much we get dinner here a couple times a month. The owner is great. I went in and talked to her about gluten cross contact, pan sharing, etc etc and she put my mind at ease.

Had the orange chicken - so good and did not get sick. Nice to find a Chinese restaurant that’s knowledgeable about cross-contamination! Had leftovers the next day for lunch and they were good too!

This place is great! Both of my kids have celiac (daughter is especially sensitive). Everyone was fine. The woman I spoke to gets it when it comes to gf and cc. We felt very reassured. It’s so nice to have a Chinese food option!!

Fabulous and once I said gluten free the woman that took and delivered my order was very clear what was and was not okay and seemed rather protective - I felt super comfortable and had Awesome Chinese take out. I live in DC and may come up just to eat here!

I did an online order and was very pleased with their gluten free selections. They also include a section where you can write in special notes like having celiac. When I picked up the order the cashier made a point of repeating back our order and also pointing out that they made sure to give me GF fried rice. When comparing it to the other rice you could definitely see the difference but everything was still delicious!

The owner makes a point to keep her GF food safe! I live in NC and haven’t been able to eat Chinese in years. This is a must go to when I’m working in Baltimore.

If you order online and specify gf they add a dollar to everything. Food is good. Sesame chicken is the first I’ve had since being diagnosed celiac.

What a great find. The staff understands what is necessary for a safe, gluten free meal (both ingredients and avoiding cross contamination in the kitchen). So happy to have a local restaurant for Chinese food where we can eat safely.

Separate GF fryer, friendly staff, they understand the importance of GF. The only reason I give 4 stars is because I felt the food could have been a little better, but it was good and we will be returning.

Owner told us they have a dedicated frier for GF fried options. She also says they have a separate prep and cooking area. Many GF options on the menu.

Great food (no MSG, fresh ingredients, white sauce isn’t even too salty), they clearly mark GF items and I had no problems as a sensitive celiac!

I was very impressed with being able to have safe gluten free Chinese at a restaurant! That’s unheard of for me so I was thrilled! They were very knowledgeable and put me at ease! I’m very sensitive with cross contamination and they made me feel very safe.
