    Sooo many gluten free options! I had sweet and sour chicken, dumplings and fried rice. All of it was delicious! Comes in very large portions though. Service was great too. I didn't get a reaction! :))

    YUM! Huge plate sesame chicken, tons of broccoli. Too much for one person, should have split. Husband loved it too!

    My daughter hadn't had Orange Chicken and dumplings since diagnosis. They were just like pre-gf and she loved both. Mongolian Beef was another favorite. Everything was great including the service.

    I got the chicken fried rice as well as chicken & broccoli, sharing it with a gluten eater. We both loved it, didn't taste any different than normal Chinese food. It is on the pricey side for regular Chinese food, ($20-25 an entree) but it's New York so what do you expect. Overall 10/10 though, it tasted great

    A friend told me to try Lili's while in NYC. It was not disappointing! When I told my waiter I was GF she immediately brought me their GF menu. It was a nice menu with lots of options. I had shrimp fried rice. It was very good. My husband ordered soup off the "regular " menu and enjoyed it. I'll be sure to thank my friend for her tip!

    Extensive GF menu. Shrimp & Vegetables & Sesame Chicken with brown rice entrees and Matahari and Rock shrimp sushi rolls are all simply divine! The manager is great and took great care in explaining their sanitation practices. No cross contamination here! Great tasting, clean GF option right across from Carnegie Hall.

    The food was just OK. They have a separate menu, but they basically just take out any of the gluten stuff in the food (no substitutes). The food in general is only satisfactory.

    Service was very slow. Restaurant was dirty (my water glass had lipstick on it, every table cloth was stained). Food was mediocre. There are much better celiac-friendly options in the city.

    Ate here for dinner - had the GF Saigon Roll & the GF Chicken Pad Thai. SEPARATE GF MENU and gluten free food is served on a square plate. Portions were large and the service was good.

    Good portion, average price for nyc 15.95 for General Tso's chicken. Did not get sick. It was a little dry but luckily it was in a lot of sauce so it could make up for it.

    Such a treat to have crispy sesame and tempura and other treats, and at a reasonable price! Only downside is no lunch specials for GF so no benefit to going at lunch vs dinner. But as a sensitive Celiac who travels often to NYC for work, the last thing on my mind is a couple of extra bucks for Celiac safety. Also love Lilli & Loo (sister store with similar menu).

    Separate GF menu ✔️ As always, it's safe to confirm "this is gluten free right?" when the food comes out (I do that everywhere). Had 2 delicious sushi rolls and edamame. I bring my own soy sauce packets everywhere since the restaurant tamari is sometimes in a ceramic container + not clearly labeled.

    Very, very careful to be truly gluten-free and the sesame chicken was the best I've had (including in my previous life of gluten-laden foods).

    Huge gf menu with tons of options and no cross-contamination. I have celiac and have gotten takeout from Lili's 57 at least 20 times and have never had a reaction. Delicious food, too - you'd never guess it's gluten free. My friend even thought my gluten free sesame chicken tasted better than her non-gf one.

    An amazing gluten free menu with SO MANY options! The waiter assured me that they prepare all the gluten free orders separately, and my dinner was delicious. It's a real treat to find celiac-safe, relatively-authentic Asian food!

    I love chinese food; have celiac; and have eaten here many times without getting ill. I love the food and the service is very good. I am surprised to hear other celiacs who stated they have had issues here. I was sick last night from a local italian place with a gf menu (Anne's in Summit) on my first visit; so wanted to say i have eaten at Lilly and Loos, both here and the Lexington branch at least 10 times, without a problem.
