They e had problems with saying things are gluten free when not. I’d be very cautious about this place.

Oh, lord. Okay, so this place is delicious, and there are a LOT of gluten free options. The staff, however, isn’t always super aware, as I discovered when I went there the other day and a staff member informed me that a dish that I’d ordered several times, and had been assured every time I asked previously was gluten free, was not, in fact, gluten free. (For context, I’m celiac but don’t tend to have reactions to mild glutenings/cross-contamination incidents.) This place genuinely has amazing food, but because of that it’s probably going to be a while before I eat here again. If you’re super-sensitive, maybe think twice before trying this out, or at least be careful with the menu.

The staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free options, glove changes, etc. I've been three times now and the food and service are consistently good.

False labeling!

The items marked 'gluten free' contain wheat. Disclosed on their website but not in person. According to the Food and Drug Administration restaurants should NOT be representing their wheat-based soy sauce as gluten-free.

I did not know this when I ate there and had a reaction.

I love this place. Delicious food. I have had it several times with no reaction and I am extremely sensitive to cross contamination.
