    I ordered the glass noodles with meat and I got VERY sick for a week. It was horrible. I asked several times if there was any other ingredient besides potatoes as I have other grain allergies and they said no. Also they said soy sauce was gf. I'm not sure what it was, maybe cross contamination?

    Highly recommend this place, especially the pork dumplings!! Oh and they will let you sit outside with your dog too - always a plus in my book.

    If I am in Raleigh or traveling through it's a MUST place to eat. I usually eat at the bar, talk with the staff and watch them prepare dishes. I normally order two orders of the gluten free pork dumplings. They have other items but I have an addiction. They also have great gf desserts.

    Well I was in raleigh today and was looking for a place to try I hadn't been to yet. Did read some of the reviews before going and noticed that many reviews commented on the copious vegan and GF options so had to try it out. This place does look like a small hole in the wall type place, but try it. The staff are great and the food is good. Had their GF pork dumplings along with a beef bibimbap. Both were really good and I really loved the kimchi. I had the brownie with peanut butter ice cream and strawberry preserve. Did like that as well. So in short must stop for GF patrons.

    What a good find! Dumplings, bibimbap, and glass noodles were all so delicious. Staff was friendly and accommodating, we will be back! Many times, probably.

    Knowledgeable staff and a lot of well-marked GF options. The dumplings were good (a bit oily) but otherwise I was pleased with the quality of the food. The prices were a bit steep for the options.

    God bless them for having gf dumplings! Make sure you are vigilant in saying that you have a gf intolerance or celiacs because their menu shows items that are gfa (gluten free available) not always gf. I have accidentally ordered the dumplings with gluten and obviously got terribly sick.

    We came during lunch and despite the menu being smaller, we were overwhelmed by how delicious everything was! We had dumplings, japchae and bimbimbap. 3 out of 3 celiacs in our family remained reaction free. Can't wait to go back!

    This restaurant was a great find! Everything was delicious and safe. It was nice to have great food at a place that was a little more casual and not so expensive.

    Both the food and service here were great! We went there on anniversary dinner while visiting from out of town for a Autoimmune summit, because it was rated so well and there's nothing like that here. Our server was super friendly and informative. He told us about how when someone at the table orders gluten free that they use separate ramekins and everything just to signal to everyone else in the kitchen that someone in the party has a gluten intolerance. They take it very seriously. Normally when I go out to eat, (which is very rare) I feel embarrassed asking so many questions or being a pain in the butt, but no one was rude or made me feel bad. They had so many delicious options to choose from that you can't get anywhere else and their menu changes every week depending on local ingredients. I ordered Pumpkin Curry with Chicken and my husband got the Spicy Squid Stir-fry. The squid in his stir fry was unlike any we had every had. It wasn't chewy at all, just tender and flavorful. They also have fun desserts that they make there. We ordered the Ginger Lemongrass Creme Brulee. All in all, it was a wonderful experience that I highly recommend to people that want something different than the usual gluten free options offered at restaurants.

    Terrific gluten free dumplings! Delicious vegan options as well. Amazed that the chef can do so much in such a small space. Go early, place is popular.

    The server asked if we had any dietary restrictions as soon as we walked in, the menu is clearly marked, and there are rotating gf dumplings. There was even a gf chocolate tort for dessert but we didn't order because we were so full!
