The workers were very nice and tried their best to keep my food separate to avoid cross contamination. I got fresh stuff from the cooler and the cooks used new tools and tried to clean my spot on the grill as best they could.

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.

I have a gluten allergy and was nervous to eat here because I hadn’t since finding out about my allergy. But I read on Google that I could. So hubby and I tried it out for date night. It’s been a few days and I’ve had zero reaction. Thanks for your dedication to keeping me safe even with a long line.

The ladle used for gluten sauces are spilled over the gluten-free sauces. The waitress suggested not eating there.

The server was great and I loved the “allergy bowl” concept. They did great at labeling and explaining what was GF and great at keeping it separate while cooking. The only downside I saw was the serving area for the actual noodles… there was definitely some cross contamination there.

If you ask when checking in, they give you special bowls that indicate a food allergy and have a menu with lots of allergen information. They also have special procedures to clean the grill surface and use dedicated, new cooking utensils. Only downside is few GF sauces. And obviously with any sort of buffet / salad bar setup cross contamination is a consideration.
