I was excited to try this place out because of the good reviews. I’m celiac and my husband is not but we decided to order all gf so we could share and make it easy for the kitchen. Our waiter confirmed that everything we ordered was absolutely fine. Our lo mein came with what looked like egg noodles instead of rice noodles so we asked again and he confirmed again with the kitchen. We ended up calling over the manager who then checked again with the kitchen and turns out they were not gf noodles. I’m glad I held off and triple checked. She brought out the gf version. Everything else was good and I didn’t get sick. I’d suggest if you go to ask right away for the manager to take your order because there needs to be more training for the waitstaff.

So glad to have tried this Chinese restaurant last night based on other reviews. We went in instead of doing takeout so I could talk to them about what can be made gluten free. They were super helpful and can make most of the menu GF and have allergy protocols in the kitchen. We got house fried rice, general gaos chicken, spare ribs, and pork egg foo young, all was delicious. They confirmed everything was GF when bringing it out and also brought me a bowl of GF soy sauce and warned me not to use the bottle on the table. My non-GF husband also ordered a sushi roll not GF and the manager came out to remind me not to eat that. I appreciated how careful they are and will def be visiting again/ordering takeout. So glad to have this place nearby!

I asked the waitress 3 times to confirm that my meal was gluten free. Unfortunately even thought it was confirmed I got an item that had gluten in it. We spoke with the manager and they told me that they cannot make crab Rangoon and chicken fingers gluten free. This could be the language barrier or me not trusting my gut. Make sure you ask for the manager

Enjoyed our first meal from here this seek. As others have mentioned, there’s no separate GF menu so I called to ask. The woman who answered said they can make many of the dishes gluten free but to be sure to mention GF when I call to order as they have allergy protocols. I ordered a combination meal with spare ribs, rice, beef and broccoli and it was very good. Happy to have a local option!

This is a Chinese Restuarant. They have no separate GF menu; The actual menu does not have actual GF selections. It does say that they will prepare 99% of the menu items GF. We ordered 5 takeout selections including Lightly battered Orange Chicken, Lo Mein, Egg Foo Young, Beef with Broccoli and Pork Fried Rice. They even supplied GF soy sauce takeout packets. The food tasted great, and we didn't get GLUTEN! Based on the meal, I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to folks with celiac. The manager said that they were highly sensitive to allergens in general

I get sushi here regularly, and lately have gotten more adventurous with my sushi and have been trying spicier rolls and other interesting dishes. I ate here in person for the first time the other day and I ordered something and asked if it was gluten free and the waitress said “it has tempura on it, so I’m not sure it could be made gluten free. I could ask if you’d like!” But I chose to order something else anyway. I appreciated that she was honest and offered the option.
