Most of their food is gf, all the sauces are gf, and when you tell the cooks you are gf, they do extra cleaning of the grill and mark a spot off for your food and use clean spatulas. I have eaten there twice and have not had a reaction. The first waiter explained to me to not to eat the rice, soy sauce that's on the table, sausage, and crab. The pad thai noodles are gf. It's nice to still be able to eat what I like there.

If you have celiac this place is a cross contamination nightmare. All of the ingredients are laid out buffet style, you grab a bowl and put in what you would like. All of the ingredients end up everywhere and who knows if people are leaving the tongs in their respective containers. Same with the sauces section. I think it’s labeled with what is gluten free but who is to say someone didn’t accidentally drip something? Then you continue down the line where your food is cooked in front of you on a huge circular thing. Your area is cleaned (I think with soap but I’m not entirely sure) and then cooked right next to the rest of the food... I went here as a new celiac so my reaction was mild but I’m sure if I went back now being gluten free for almost two years, i would be out for weeks. If you have celiac stay away.

If you let them know you have an allergy they take extra care to clean the grill and keep separate from others. All the sauces are GF here. I have to say the staff were the most polite of any HuHot I've been to! Not that others have been bad, just everyone here was polite and attentive! ๐Ÿ˜Š

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.

This restaurant is so safe for people with food allergies! They take all the necessary safety precautions and more. When I sat down I talked to my server and I was pointed to a separate stack of yellow bowls that indicate to the chefs that you have food allergies. Every time I walked up to get my food cooked they already had the area prepared. They first clean the grill extra super well and check that I’m comfortable with it, they set out blockers to separate the grill from everyone else’s food, and they use compete separate serving/cooking tools.

It was amazing experience eating here. The chefs took above and beyond safety precautions. I never was left feeling weird or needy for needing extra safety precautions. The second time around of getting my food the grill was already prepared to the safety standard of what I need. I definitely recommend this place!

These people didn't even know what gluten or cross contamination was! It was advertised that they would get fresh food from the cooler and clean the grill, but they had no idea what they were doing! I had to leave, which was disappointing, because I had been looking forward to eating here.

I used to be able to eat here safely with sauces marked accordingly. I went today and noticed the sauces we not marked any longer but I wasn’t worried. I ate the normal ones I usually do. I immediately felt sick and got a headache, which has never happened. When I asked the manager she said they weren’t allowed to mark the products as gluten free. The manager was not clear on what was safe of gluten free. I have literally never been so sick in my life.

I have eaten here many times without getting sick. It is a buffet so there is a chance of cross contamination from the line, particularly around the noodles. Look carefully when you are collecting your noodles or ask the staff and they will grab you a fresh tray from the back to pull from. When you get to the grill, let them know you have an allergy and they will clean the grill for you and divide your food from the rest while cooking. If you communicate tour needs, the staff is always quite helpful!

They have some bowls they will give you to notify the cooks that you have an allergy. They thoroughly scrubbed the grill and blocked off with spatulas to be sure. I didn’t get sick! Be cautious as the waitress said all the sauces were gf and then brought me the allergy menu. Most sauces had wheat in them but not gluten.

Always enjoy our meal here— they SCRUB the grill and take great pains to minimize/eliminate cross contamination. All of their sauces are GF (though some have wheat that’s processed to be below the PPM threshold to be GF, so if celiac, it might be best to avoid those). 99% of their ingredients are GF, though I wish that they’d move the rice noodles away from the wheat noodles to prevent cross contamination (the staff will provide fresh ingredients if need be).

I’m not celiac but gluten sensitive, but was very impressed with the steps they took when I asked for gluten free options. I got a yellow bowl that was recognized while I was in line, and by the time I got to the grill they had already Brillo scrubbed, washed with water, and secluded an area with spatulas. As the cooks worked their way around the grill, they only used the unique spatulas reserved for my food. Very impressive. Next time I will make sure to get a regular bowl as these precautions are not necessary for me, but it was great to see and I wanted to share. Happy eating!

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.

This place is amazing when it comes to taking care of their GF customers. Yes a customer has to use common sense and read but the restraunt provides special bowls for those with allergies, scrubs the grill prior to an allergy order then they place a special section up to prevent cross contamination with other orders. Not all sauces are GF however they are all clearly marked so you don't get confused. Reading through some of these other reviews I just laugh. Clearly some just expect to be handed everything on platter. Anyone who has celiac disease knows you have to read and ask questions. Even then many people do not know what celiac disease is so you have to educate them. Huhot rocks. I have eaten here several times and never gotten sick.

Wow. The service was amazing. The manager offered to get the items for my order out of the prepped boxes in the back so I didn't have to go through the buffet line (a cc nightmare). He even oversaw the cleaning of the grill after telling the cooks it was an allergy order (I watched) and personally delivered the food. He also instructed and made sure they kept the orders separate and used clean utensils. I am celiac and had no reaction.

I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed their food. Have had it several times now, and even with takeout I never got sick from it! So many options to customize your dish with, and you get a very large portion for your money when they deliver. I wasn’t sure at first because it was a chain and buffet style, but it’s given me a chance to eat Asian style food again and I’m happy.

This particular location has always been great with me, they have gluten free pasta and they moved it by the vegetables to avoid the gluten noodles from falling into it. At the grill if you tell them you have an allergy they do a good job of cleaning the area and giving your food it’s own blocked off space.

This place is about making connections and being super polite and advocating for yourself. I went here with 3 gluten eaters. I told the waitress right away that I had celiac and she gave me the allergen menu, she told me her best friend was a celiac too and understood cross contamination. When it came time to grab my ingredients she went to the back for me with the list of items I wanted and grabbed them fresh. They then designated a spot in the grill, wiped it down really well- basically scoured it-and put up barriers so my food wouldn’t mingle with trouble. I did not get sick and it was so yummy!! if you do not advocate for yourself I can see how this restaurant could be trouble, hence the 4 stars.

Most sauces contain wheat, but are processed to less than 20ppm gluten. Luckily there are plenty of fresh sauces that do not contain soy, like ginger and garlic juice, sesame oil, etc.

I was given a bowl with a distinguishing color, so the cooks knew to keep my food separate and they always followed separate cooking protocols. All the staff knew what to do with food allergies, etc.

Dietary restrictions are easy to find on the corporate website.

Perhaps because I was comparing to BDs Mongolian BBQ, I thought this place was mediocre. I don't like how thin they cut all the meat... It made it taste terrible and I couldn't even pierce the meat with my fork out was so thin. Not impressed.

Dedicated allergy bowls. The clean off the grill really well this location places plates and spatulas and makes a barrier and uses just one set of spatulas for our gf food. The buffet. The rice noodles were not next to the regular ones so less chance of cc. The only thing I didn't like was the sauces are not marked. I didn't check for a list as we have been enough at ours back home that we knew what was save for sure.

The process was a little confusing at first but worked out great in the end. It would have been a 5 start but I had to wait awhile for service and the rest of my party eat without me. There was confusion about whether I ordered at the table but then I was told that I go to the line and someone would meet me and walk me through the fresh topping containers to avoid all cross contamination. They put me in line quickly at grill station and cleaned the grill super well. I was super impressed! Those guys work hard and did a great job cleaning it. I enjoyed my meal and had no issues or sickness. I would eat there again!

Very Celiac Friendly! Tell the server you have a food allergy- they should give you a special bowl (yellow) to go through the lone that tells the cooks that you have a food allergy. Ask for the allergy sheet- it tells you exactly which items have wheat in them. I took the sheet up with me as I created my meal. A couple employees checked in with me as well. When we got to the grill they scrubbed it clean for my food and set up plates and spatulas around my food to protect it. They also used new spatulas to cook the food. Amazing experience!!

They are amazing for allergies. They ultra clean the blazing hot grill with a metal screen and scrub for at least 5 minutes until its cleanly washed with no residue. They give a special colored bowl and it takes a little longer but so worth it. All sauces are gluten free except the straight soy sauce. They are great.

Staff is knowledgeable about food safety and allergies. Waitresses ask about allergies before serving and have available lists that show products that are gluten free. When taking food up to the grill, the employees on the grill are notified that you have an allergy and confirm it. They then clean a space on the grill for your food specifically and use new clean utensils.
