    While in Idaho Falls for a family trip we tried this restaurant as I have a gluten allergy. The food was amazing and it was awesome to have mandarin style chicken again. Very good.

    Seem to know their stuff with Gluten free. Meals are great and no reaction.

    They have gluten free soy sauce, and were able to make many dishes gluten free. The biggest problem is that the veggies, and much of the meat that is used is frozen food, so the dishes are not fresh, and do not have a very good flavor. Even the Iced Tea has an odd, unpleasant flavor. Our first clue should have been that there were almost no other customers in the restaurant. Then to add insult to injury, the final bill was very expensive.

    very helpful with substitutions, the food didn't taste the the best and had an off flavour.

    The first true gluten free restaurant I've been too yet. Have returned several times and haven't ever had issues with cross contamination either. I have such sensitive C, its been a nightmare. Was the first hot meal I had that didn't make my whole abdomen hurt for hours, and continues to be. Staff is very kind.

    You'll be in your GF glory! Deep fried chicken dishes, salads, soups, stir fry, all GF & no CC issues! All staff seem so informed about GF & CC. Food was delicious! Service was great! Try this place, you won't be sorry.

    A beautiful Chinese restaurant with some of the most accommodating staff I've met. They offer great Chinese cuisine, including a few breaded chicken meals. I got the Sesame Chicken (Which was breaded with rice flour) and it was the best Chinese meal I've had since going Gluten-Free. The staffs very knowledgable and explained to me how they make sure that the gluten free is prepared separately to avoid cross contamination. Overall, a lovely restaurant, I only wish I lived nearby.

    This was such a treat! They do not have a separate GF menu, but can make almost anything GF, with exception of the obvious like egg rolls and wontons. They have a great selection of traditional dishes that most Americans might shy away from and the more familiar dishes. The portions were generous and one selection would easily serve two people. The staff will double check without hesitation and they are incredibly accommodating! I wish they were closer to where I live as it is a 12 hour drive from home! (Great reason to visit the in-laws though!)
