Sitting at HuHot watching my family eat. Waitress offered to get me bowls from the back. I asked to speak with management or someone about getting the food from the back. A supervisor came to the table and stated they would get my vegetables, meats, and sauces from the back. When I stated I wanted to order only gluten free food, he went to get me a list. He returned after several minutes with a list of all the items that have gluten/wheat. I said I had no idea what items DIDN’T have gluten. He said he could get a list. Since my family already had been eating for several minutes, I told the supervisor to forget my order. I didn’t want my food to arrive as my family finished (and there was only one cook for a busy crowd). Highly doubt any meal could have kept from getting cross contaminated anyhow. What a disappointing and hungry evening.

HuHot has a great system for anybody who has celiacs or allergies. The waitress brought a paper with their menu and allergen information. The egg drop soup is great, and the Asian-style salad can be gluten-free if it’s ordered without the ramen on top. At the buffet, there are zucchini noodles and pad Thai (rice noodles). Some of their sauces are listed as containing wheat, but are processed to contain less than 20 ppm (gluten-free by FDA guidelines). They were also really good about cleaning and sectioning off the grill and using new utensils. If you are worried about cross-contamination, there is food in the back, and they also have a gluten-free tamari (soy sauce). The desserts are not gluten-free, but the meal was plenty.

I called ahead and spoke with the manager, Caleb James. I was a bit concerned since the stir-fry tables were full of noodles, which are easy for cross contamination. Caleb went over the top to work with me and my extreme sensitivity. He wrote down all my vegetable and meat choices from the table, went in the back kitchen, and created a bowl of fresh vegetables and my protein. He had me choose a GF sauce, scrubbed down an isolated section of the grill, and personally cooked my food to perfection. I rarely eat in an Asian-style restaurant due to the risk, but I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and dining experience. My husband was happy with his (normal) meal too. No reactions, just appreciation. What a treat!

I agree with the other review. It's phenomenal! Stay away from the crab and meatballs and noodles. Manager will bring out the rice noodles that are gluten free. Otherwise, all is gluten free including sauces. They clean the grill extra and use specific spatulas while cooking and serving. I really appreciate this place and their attentiveness!

Amazing! Check the allergen menu online. Almost everything in the buffet is safe to eat. The griller took extra care to not just wipe down the grill but sanded it down and then cleaned it again. Always a risk of cross contamination with a buffet but felt safe and didn’t get sick!

Tell them you have a gluten allergy and they'll give you a VIP bowl and clean the grill to keep things separate. There's still a chance of cross contamination so it's best to go when they're less busy

There are no cross contamination measures taken in the food line whatsoever. We went in for my birthday dinner tonight and honestly I was disgusted by the actual customers more than anything. Keeping mind that there was a person stocking the buffet at the time, witnessing everything and doing absolutely nothing about it, one lady had regular noodles on her plate, took some cabbage and put it on top of the noodles, her kid threw a fit so she took it off of her plate and put it back in the buffet container. Then there was a grown man using his HANDS to get noodles off of the buffet and touching everything else. Not that I would have gone back through, but the waitress never even asked how everything was going or if I would like another allergy bowl. I will say that the guy grilling did a very thorough job cleaning the grill once it was my food was able to be cooked. They can’t do anything about the disgusting buffet habits of other people that do not even think about what they are doing, the service still sucked. And given that an employee was standing there filling things up and did NOTHING about the contamination….. If you are celiac DO NOT RISK IT!!! People do not care enough about what they are doing.
