This place was great! Jennie’s chow fun was delicious, and you can see lots of fresh veggies in the back with the chefs. It’s hard to find a good gluten free Chinese place, but here the staff is very knowledgeable and they even have GF soy sauce.

First of all NOT gluten free even though they pretend to be. I was clear and they said they would only used GF soy sauce but obviously they had cross contamination because I got sick. Second of all, BLAND flavor. A Kung Pao dish can still be spicey with garlic & chili without gluten. Not at this place.

While I absolutely love Jennie Low, I would like to point out that their chicken broth with which they stir fry almost every dish with, unfortunately cintains gluten. After I was diagnosed with Celiac, I continued eating there because they assured me they could do almost everything GF because they use Tamari. I continued to get sick and learned from another Celiac friend that they do not in fact, provide a knowledgeable guidance when altering their dishes.

if someone knows different or has has this specific conversation with them, please let me know! I miss it sooo much!

Yes, they do have gluten-free soy sauce, and say they can make many dishes gluten free. My imperial chicken was delicious!

Three reasons we eat here often: Number one, and most important for a Chinese restaurant, they can make most of their dishes gluten-free. And not just the white sauce you get with snow peas and chicken (most Chinese restaurants can do that, and it's booooring). I've gotten broccoli beef, kung pow chicken, asparagus chicken, mango chicken, all made with gluten-free soy sauce! Second reason - there are a lot of vegetables, and they are fresh. The sauces I order aren't too heavy, so the overall effect is that the dishes seem more healthy than other Chinese restaurants. Third reason - the prices are very reasonable.Just mention to the person on the phone or the server that you need to eat gluten-free, and they will let you know which dishes they can make for you!
