NOT Celiac friendly, or suitable for a wheat allergy at all! I went there and the manager came and explained how all their sauces are gluten free and they deep cleaned the grill and everything. I got extremely sick and checked their website. Apparently just about every sauce contains wheat, but they claim that it is fermented so it contains less than 20 ppm. I definitely wouldn't have trusted that if I had read it before hand. As far as cross contamination the noodles are at the beginning of the line so everything after has chance of touching gluten. Tasted great but NOT GF.

Staff are knowledgeable, make sure you clearly communicate if it’s an allergy and not a preference. The cooks will take the extra time to clean the cook spot thoroughly and the completely block it off from food cooking adjacent to yours. All the sauces are clearly labeled so you control what sauce goes on your food. Staff have all been very kind and professional. Never been glutened here.

Lots of options and all their sauces are gluten free. I don’t eat noodles anyway so I don’t care about the gf options. They scrub down a section of the grill for you and use separate utensils. The only downside is having to wait longer for your food but it’s worth it!!

Food is delicious but will definitely make you sick if you have Celiac Disease. I don't know if it was that they didn't clean the grill well enough or if some non gluten free food got into the containers I took from but I will not be back.

I wish I could recommend this place. They appear to be trying to be GF friendly, but the risk of cross-contamination is still quite high. As far as I can tell, they have made the switch to all GF sauces, and they will clean off a section of the grill for you and use dedicated utensils if you ask. However, their rice noodles are right next to their wheat noodles, and do occasionally commingle. It's my kids' favorite place to eat out, but I have gotten sick on multiple occasions.

Fast, cheap, healthy. They will clean off a section of grill while you watch before cooking your food. I just give them a heads up that I have an "allergy bowl" before I start loading up, and they usually have the grill cleaned off before I get there. They'll designate one cook to handle your food, building a wall for you food using clean spatulas and using different utensils.

I've been going for years, and *one* time they accidentally used the wrong spatula on my food while I wasn't looking. (They were *very* busy.) They immediately scraped off the grill and asked me to bring a new bowl up and skip the line.

I've also been told that if I was uncomfortable with cross-contamination from menu items coming from a buffet, I can ask to have fresh ingredients brought from the back. They do a good job of arranging GF options on the other end from common allergens.

A great option for gf dining. Every time we've gone they clear/clean a spot on the grill to keep mine safe. They clearly label sauces, and most all ingredients except for the regular noodles are safe (and they do have rice noodles!) I really enjoy my meals here.

Unfortunately they must’ve changed their sauces. They used to all be gluten free but now only about 5 are. They still section off your meal on the grill and use new utensils when preparing!

I’ve been here a few times and always love it! Ask for an allergy bowl and they’ll give you a special yellow bowl to fill with your desired ingredients. You can choose whatever you like and everything is that is gf marked. Sometimes it’s marked with a “G” which confused me at first, but means gluten free. They also have recipe cards at the beginning of the line including a few gf recipes you can try!

The employees are very knowledgeable about allergies and I never have to ask them to clean anything. They see my yellow bowl and immediately clean and section off the grill so my food does not come into contact with anything else on the grill.

So this restaurant has notes in the menu (and in the bathrooms) about their various allergy protocols… they all sound nice, but fall short in practice. If you have any allergy, they’ll clean and reserve a section of the grill, and pull food direct from the kitchen to avoid cross-contamination. (yay!) And then the grill chefs toss the food all around and scrape their spatulas on the same gluten-covered surface where they scrape all of their other food. And really, how clean was that grill anyway? If you’re sensitive, this place seems like a disaster. Also, the food wasn’t very good, but that’s a whole other conversation…

Celiac-They do a great job with trying to accommodate allergies. If you have allergies, you can ask for ingredients from the kitchen which aren’t cross contaminated, but it definitely makes you feel like a burden. You have to wait for your server and have them bring you out fresh ingredients. They seemed very short staffed, so you’re taking up a lot of your servers time when they have so many tables to manage already. They don’t offer gluten free noodles, so you can only have rice as the main ingredient, but they do offer brown or white rice. They go through a great effort to clean the grill and section it off when you give them your plate. They scrub it down hard! Allergy plates are designated with orange bowls rather than blue bowls for everyone else. The risk of cross contamination is still big and I regret taking that risk because I am SO sick. I appreciate their effort, but the burdensome feeling and risk of cross contamination aren’t worth it in my opinion and I sadly won’t be returning.
