Only two GF items (after I ignored the chicken and rice dish the other poster mentioned). I ordered the Singapore Noodles and asked if they were cooked separately from the other noodles. The server said no, but I asked if they could be. He said it would take awhile since it was busy, but it still came out fast, lol.

Bad experience! They have a menu with posted ‘veg’ and ‘gf’ menu items. I ordered an item that had chicken and rice and a variety of veggies and a cilantro sauce. The menu item is clearly marked ‘gf’. It does not say ‘can make this item gluten free….if that were the case 80% of the items would have the gf mark’. I ordered the item and then just happened to say ‘you can skip the fortune cookie….I wont eat it, since I’m gluten free’. And he came back with ‘oh…if you are gluten free you will only get chicken and rice….not veggies or sauce’. I said ‘why does the menu item say it’s gluten free then’. And he said ‘it is …if you leave off the sauce and veggies’. I pointed to another menu item that did not say gluten free and said ‘but if you left those items off of this one it would be gluten free too and it isn’t marked. You should not mark items as gf if they aren’t’. And then I said I was leaving because I’d he nuts to pay $13 for chicken and rice. I wasnt rude and he wasn’t rude. Then a coworker asked why he was picking up the silverware and he told her and she made an incredibly derogatory remark about me….as she was turning and walking away. I went up to her and asked her to repeat it. Of course she cleaned it up but then kept saying ‘I dont know what your problem is’. It is disappointing. They had their menu posted outside and I actually went to the park for 30 minutes until they opened. I was the first customer of the day so I couldnt blame the rudeness on a bad work day.

Great place. In the beginning the waiter said that because it’s a busy night they will not cook the noodles in a separate pot but I told him we came specially because if the GF options and waited for a long time for the table and ask him to ask if there is any chance they will cook in a separate pot and the manager said off course and we deserve it since we waited for so long. All food, GF, Veggie and non veggie was great.

Loved this place! It was packed and there was a wait. Very limited GF options, but they are clearly marked. I had a red curry soup that was fantastic. Can’t wait to have the leftovers tomorrow.

The server told me he had never heard of Celiac Disease. As someone in the food industry, that seems insane... especially when the menu has gluten free items listed. If you’re someone who needs reassurance that the items are going to be safe, I would avoid this place. I had the Singapore Noodles with veggies and it was delicious. I’m waiting to see if I have a reaction... fingers crossed.

I had the house special fried rice and waited to make sure I didn't get sick before writing this review. It was not very clear what was safe for me to eat or not but I was OK afterwards. Front of the house staff was somewhat rude about where people can wait for their table (there was no room inside or outside to wait without being on top of other people).

All meats are marinated in soy sauce so that only left tofu and even though I got what the waitress said most gf people get it still tasted like soy sauce and low and behold the itching started about an hour later, should have walked out before we even ordered.

Went for lunch based on the reviews. They do not have a gluten free menu. I asked the waitress what was gluten free. She said non of the meats as they are marinated in soy sauce, and none of the soups (pho). Not many options left besides a salad. So we left

I love this place! You have to be assertive when asking about menu items though. They have rice noodles that are awesome and can sometimes be subbed in dishes. Last time we went I ordered the Lemongrass shrimp dish & it was amazing! The staff is hit or miss on knowledge but if you ask politely you will find one that does as there are a few.

Food was good, but server didn't seem very knowledgeable. Only one of the starters was gluten-free.

PHO!

I was told there are only a few items on the menu that can't be made GF.

Just remember to stay away from the hoisin they bring to the table.
