I’ve eaten here a hundred times with no problem. They are great. GF menu, and you can ask about whatever you might want that is not on it. Often times it is possible.

Currently offering takeout only. GF Chinese is always such a treat. I ordered the beef and broccoli with chicken fried rice. The both were labeled GF. They both tasted like their regular world equivalents. I didn’t get sick. Success!

Decent Chinese-American food, with GF menu. This was our go-to for many years, but I think last night was their third strike, so I’ll be looking for another Chinese restaurant. 😭 One time my GF-labeled meal had a (wheat) noodle in it. I forget what the other strike was. Today I’m reacting like I’ve been glutened, even though there wasn’t anything visibly wrong. Sad. So, three strikes and now they’re out for me.

Ordered food on dec 30 for dec 31 afternoon pickup. Ordered some food off their regular menu and 3 gluten free entrees. My husband picked up the food and when he brought it home only one dish was labeled gluten free. We couldn’t get through on the phone since they were so busy so I went back. I spoke with them and they went and made me fresh food. They could have lied and told me all the food was safe or they could’ve sent me away. But they took the time on their busiest day to make me fresh food. Mistakes happen, especially when they’re busy, I really appreciate them making it right. And the food was delicious

So VERY impressed with this restaurant!! I have a wheat allergy and have not been able to eat Chinese food for many years because of cross contamination and get very sick. I placed an order for New Years Eve (I'm sure you know it's the busiest time of year) and they told me they would not let me pick up at 6 pm because that would be their busiest time and they couldn't guarantee any contamination. So I ordered and picked up at noon and warmed it up for supper, I assumed it wouldn't be that great warmed over. I was wrong! The food was absolutely delicious and I did not get sick at all. The staff is SO knowledgeable of the dangers of wheat/gluten for some. They even put in gluten free soy sauce packets! I was able to have lobster sauce (not listed as gf but they will prepare separate), crispy sesame chicken and pork fried rice!! Definitely a must go to! Will definitely be going back!!

I ate here a lot with my family in my pre celiac days, and I'm so glad they've begun to serve GF food!! I had Pineapple Shrimp and it was fried in corn starch!!! I'm wildly impressed. Tangerine Beef was deliciously crispy, I can't express how wonderful it was.

Lots of the staff are gluten free so they know how to prepare food safely. They don't have a gluten free menu but they can make just about everything gluten free.

They can't provide certain foods, but they made me chicken chow mien and pork fried rice with lobster sauce that was gluten free. I loved it, it was great. I wish I lived closer. Nice people work there, clean too.
