I have Celiac Disease and react within an hour or two. Been eating here quite often once a week or so since I moved here because it is that good! Wish the prices weren’t so high though.

They scammed us and charged us $98 for dinner for 2 adults and 2 kids and our kids shared a meal. Chinese food should never cost over $40. Plus the food wasn’t even good at all!

I went there the first time yesterday. Not fancy, reminds me of the old time Chineses restaurants growing up in Brooklyn, NY. The food was fabulous! The spare ribs and sesame shrimp did not disappoint me. It was such a treat as it has been years since I was able to go to a Chinese restaurant. I am very sensitive to gluten and if I get any contamination I get dizzy and sick within a half hour. I was fine. I will be going back often. Love this place.

I haven’t been able to eat anything like this in well over 10 years and my kids have never had the opportunity. This place is amazing! We will be back each time we are within an hour distance! Thank you for doing what you do, you made my vacation!

As soon as we entered I was asked if we needed GF menus, which made me feel good about eating there right away. We ordered fried chicken dumplings, lemon chicken, fried rice to share. All were fresh and delicious! This didn’t even slightly upset my stomach, next day still feeling great - it was impressively celiac safe, and I didn’t have to ask 20 questions, they already knew. Extensive menu, a must visit for Celiacs!

I was dying to try this place after rave reviews from my Celiac friend. I am also gluten intolerant and agree the food is pretty good. I enjoyed the chicken chow fen (added spicy oil) a lot! I am so grateful that they offer such an extensive and varied GF and vegan menu. Idk if I'll be back just bc it's kind of a drive and I didn't find it exceptionally great or anything.

Food was pretty good. They were very aware of gluten contamination and ensured my stuff was separated from others. When they put something on the table they said if it was/wasn’t gf. It was nice not to have to ask.

Staff is very knowledgeable.

Almost anything on the menu can be made gluten free and according to some family, you cannot taste the difference.

We’ve been consistently driving upwards of 40 miles round trip to go get food as it is one of the best gluten free Chinese food restaurants in the area.

We ate here twice during our stay and with one of us being a celiac and the other having a gluten intolerance we had no issues at all with everything we ate! Their menu is clearly marked as well with a lot of different options.

The food was so delicious! We tried several different options and each time it was so tasty and filling each time. The fried dumplings and fried sweet and sour chicken were nice since we haven’t been able to have in a very long time!

Highly recommend!

Today was the first day since my diagnosis of celiac three years ago that I’ve been able to enjoy Chinese food and everything was amazing! They have an extensive gluten free menu and my server told me that all gluten free food is prepared in a separate pan with separate utensils. I Nima tested the egg rolls, which resulted with a smile. I trusted everything else and I’ve had no reaction. I highly recommend even for sensitive Celiacs!

Extensive GF menu— the waitress proactively asked about other allergies and sensitivities. They have a dedicated fryer and use separate pots, pans and utensils for GF. The dumplings and lemon chicken were standouts— excellent service, food was tasty, and it was such a relief to eat somewhere knowledgeable about GF!

I rarely eat at shared restaurants but I gave this place a chance. The lady brought up Celiac and using a separate area and separate pans and utensils etc before I could even ask. She showed me the gf soy sauce and other sauces they use.

I had the Szechuan beef. It was really good!

I didn’t try anything fried even though she said they have a separate fryer. (I’d worry)

I haven't had Chinese food since being diagnosed 5 years ago. I had pork fried rice, sesame chicken, chicken chow fun, garlic shrimp, egg rolls and steamed wontons- needless to say I was do delighted that the food was great and I didn't get sick. I will absolutely return when I visit Florida. I just wish they could have wonton soup.. Just a suggestion.😁
