This is a buffet style- make your own pad Thai - restaurant. I had to ask for new sauce from the back because I could see all the soy sauce dripped into the “gf” one. Then the chefs sauté everything on the same open top. Yes, if you tell them you are gluten free, they clear it and use new utensils but there is no way to avoid cross contamination. Everything here is contaminated. If you have a true allergy that makes you sick, I recommend avoiding this place.

I had an excellent meal here, as someone with celiacs the grill masters were great about thoroughly cleaning an area on the grill, using new utensils, and keeping everything separate. This location is also amazing about making sure the sauces and toppings on the bar are placed carefully so as to avoid cross contamination. Coming from someone who likes to eat quite a bit of food there aren't many buffets I can still enjoy so I was happy to finally find one!

Excellent--all sauces are Gluten Free & so are the Pad Thai noodles, just remember to ask the super awesome grill masters to scrape the grill for you! Super awesome staff, I didn't feel like a bother asking for GF stuff.

Incredible! So many great changes.

Allergen menu clearly marked and provided by server. Sauces clearly marked by server to indicate gluten-free.

I was given a different colored bowl so the chefs knew I had an allergy.

The chefs completely and utterly deep-cleaned the grill so my food had a clean cooking surface.

Absolutely horrendous cross contamination. Nothing is sanitary. Do NOT eat here. Cannot believe people said it was celiac friendly.

I am so impressed! They asked us right away if there were any allergies and brought us a different colored bowl. Also brought us the allergen menu with all the sauces, foods etc. When the cooks saw us coming, announced allergy on deck. Two people did a thorough cleaning, scrapping of the grill and then brought out fresh plates and fresh spatulas. They basically quarantined our area. And they did this each time we came back for more.

The food is cooked on a communal surface in front of you. You can grab all the gf sauces and noodles you like but if anyone in the last 20 minutes did NOT... THE grill won't be GF. I have had problems every time I've gone there
