    I called ahead to ask about cross contamination issues. They did everything they said they would...cleaned the grill thoroughly, barricaded my food, retrieved fresh rice noodles from the back rather than the buffet line. Food was good and I felt fine after. I have celiac.

    Amazing! They cleared off a section of the grill, blocked it off with clean utensils and scrubbed it down like crazy before cooking my food. Tons of gluten free options. The peanut sauce is awesome and gluten free!

    Their employees do not understand cross contamination at all. I got sick within 15 minutes of eating and my husband saw (after I already had gotten my food and eaten) the employee refilling the noodles and veggies stick her gloved hand in the regular noodles and then immediately touch the gluten free noodles and vegetables. If you are allergic or celiac stay away. It is really too bad because the grill chefs really try hard by cleaning grill completely.

    Menu:Their online menu states that while almost all sauces contain wheat they have been processed to meet FDA standards for gluten free foods, however, I'm not sure I trust it. In the store the menus gave full ingredients of the sauces and they almost all contained soy sauce. Additionally, each table contained a bottle of regular soy sauce with a sign that said gluten free soy sauce was available on request. It really makes me doubt that gluten free soy sauce was used in the making of the sauces.Grill:On request, they would "clean" the grill. The cleaning consisted of spraying a designated area with water and scraping it until it ran clear. There was no soap or actual cleaning performed.Cooking:If requested they would use clean utensils and set up a barrier so other food being cooked at the same time wouldn't spill over into yours.Selection:Limited options. They don't have rice as an options to cook with your vegetables but they do have pad thai noodles available. A good selection of vegetables and meats but if you don't trust their sauces are gluten free there aren't many to choose from so food might be a bit bland. Aftermath:I don't know if it was the result of cross contamination, the fact most sauces contained soy sauce, or the food not sitting right but the stomach was not feeling great afterwards. I would avoid if you're at all sensitive to cross contamination.

    They went to great care to avoid cross contamination, but my very sensitive daughter still reacted. For a food allergy they will scrape and wipe grill, put up dividers, and get food from the back for the grill.

    Not my first choice to eat out but went with co-workers. Very clean and popular. I selected exactly what I wanted and they had all items listed by allergies. I told the cook I was gluten intolerant and he took extra care cleaning the grill, using new utensils and putting a barrier around my cooking food so that there was no cross contamination. Best part I got to enjoy my dinner and not get sick. I’d give it 5 stars if you like Hohhot

    The sauces are labeled "G" for gluten free and after going thru the line, when you tell them you have an allergy, they thoroughly clean the grill and bottom tray and use new spatulas. They have obviously been educated and are so friendly about it!!

    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!

    The MANAGER got my order wrong. His defense when I couldn't walk upright and began puking was that the gluten was low down on the ingredients list so he didn't think it counted.

    We’ve had good experiences here. You do need to ask for grill to be cleaned. On busy nights, the other food from other bowls do get close to each other (and my husband has had ingredients from other bowls show up in his due to this). I need GF, and I’ve never had an issue. Sauces are techno GF but I stay away from soy sauce based ones just to be safe

    The man who helped me (I believe it was the manager?) was very helpful and was able to answer all of my questions. One noodle option is gluten free but had other noodles thrown in accidentally, they were able to get me new noodles from the back! All of their sauces except for the soy sauce is gluten free. I was skeptical since a few of the sauces I used contained soy sauce but I did not get sick!

    Always willing to bring out fresh noodles (Pad Thai), oil, and sauce specifically for you if you let them know you have celiac or are gluten intolerant. Every time I've been here it's the manager who cleans a spot on the grill and cooks my food for me - they always use fresh utensils for cooking/serving and block off your food from others on the grill. Obviously there's still a chance for CC but I really feel pretty comfortable eating here. :)

    All sauces are gluten free and they have Thai noodles. Let your server know and they will give you a white plate and the cooks use separate utensils and clean a spot on the grill with make shift barriers. Ask for the GF soy sauce from server.

    Great if you can't eat gluten. They bring you special bowls so your food can't get mixed up with anyone else's. When the cooks see the bowl, they scrub a section of the grill clean and block it off from the rest of the grill to avoid contamination. All of the signature sauces are made with tamari (GF soy sauce), so I can eat just about anything on the bar. They will also bting bottles of GF soy sauce to the table if you ask. As long as I tell the staff I have Celiacs, I never have to worry about getting sick here.

    my son has Celiac and is very sensitive. They have an allergen list. They happily get all of his ingredients from the back to avoid cross contamination. Cooks clean the grill, make a barrier with clean utensils, cook the food inside that barrier using clean utensils and a clean plate to rest the utensils on. Everyone there is super nice about the extra effort and we always feel welcomed even if we are a bit high maintenance. Highly recommended.

    Just be sure you understand the difference between the GF sauces and the non GF sauces. They're internal soy sauce we were told by one location is GF, where the sauces made with generic soy sauce are not. But it was a fun and yummy place to eat. They clean the grill and use clean spatulas to prepare your meal.

    We have had good luck here. Tell them you have a gluten "allergy", and they'll clean the griddle extra well, set up a "fence" to Cordone off your food, and use a separate spatula for your food. It's also a plus that you fill up your Own plate and watch the cooking process.

    I have eaten here a number of times, and at other locations. If you ask them, they will provide you with fresh Pad Thai noodles. they also give you a special colored bowl, to indicate an allergy. sauces are marked if they are GF or not. when you take bowl to cooks, tell them it's an allergy and they will clean (thoroughly) a spot for you and use clean utensils and plates. communication is key! Also, if you tell your server you have celiac disease, they will pre warn the cooks.

    My wife and four kids all have dairy and gluten allergies. All of their sauces are gluten free and most of their menu (meats/vegetables) are as well. You'll only need to avoid the straight soy sauce on the table and the appetizers. The wait staff was kind enough to explain all of the menu options and the cooks took extra time to clean the cooking surface before using. Their cleaning included two times over with the scraper and then once with steel wool. They annexed the surface physically from the other foods and used clean utensils. The manager has grandchildren with allergies and was supervising the process for us. We will return.

    The cook staff take reasonable precautions by cleaning the grill, but with the way the ingredient/sauce bars are set up (with people slopping everything around), getting glutened is pretty much a guarantee.

    I have Celiacs and had a great experience here. I came during a slow time and they gave me a separate colored bowl and let me know what I could and could not have. I noticed that some of the noodles crossed over into the gluten free noodles so I avoided that section altogether. The cook cleaned a spot for my meals on the grill, sectioned it off and used newly clean utensils. I did not have any adverse reactions but please be aware that it is in a way a buffet, as you the veggies, meats, noodles and sauces are all out for everyone to add what they want so there is the potential for cross contamination.

    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!

    It's fantastic!!! The atmosphere is alive and fun at dinner. The lines go down fast and the food is nicely organized and great for Gluten free. Just tell the waiter that you have a gluten allergy and they will give you a purple bowl and that bowl signifies that they clean the burner before they cook your food and they use new spatulas. You pick your own food and you see them cook it. It's fantastic and I have a serious allergy. I have not been Glutened by this restaurant.
