When you walk in, and the manager asks, “Does anyone here have any food allergies?” you know it’s going to be a safe experience. When they ask for details about what you can/can’t eat and even go to the extent of asking if any of us experience cilantro as “soapy,” we felt so loved and cared for! (My youngest does experience that soapy taste of cilantro.) Everything is so good, and we could eat almost everything!!! Wow! We loved getting to eat all kinds of authentic Chinese food made by an award-winning chef from China. The front house manager went above and beyond to make sure we were well cared for, and he even shared a great story about the awards the chef was nominated for three years in a row! Do yourself a favor—Don’t miss this place!

Really an outstanding place that is very accommodating to gluten free. Love their rice paper wraps and spring rolls. All of their sauces are safe too. It's hard to find safe Asian food, but this place nails it everytime I go. Great place to support!

Lona’s is my FAVORITE restaurant in St. Louis. Everything is so flavorful, fresh and delicious. My go to order is the big Thai chicken wrap with rice paper, and a side of glass noodles. If I don’t get that, I get a plate with the glass noodles, grilled steak, and lona q or peanut sauce. Everything I’ve ever gotten here has been amazing, there’s quite a few gf options and it’s great if you’re df too! The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and provides excellent service every time. :)

Staff were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. You can tell they care about allergies and accommodating their customers’ dietary needs. The rice paper wrap with steak, stir fried noodles, and vinaigrette was delicious. The spicy eggplant was amazing. There are only a couple of gluten containing items in the menu, so cross contamination was not a concern for me.

They were knowledgeable, almost the entire menu is gf, and when we ordered one gluten item for a guest, they double checked with us do we knew that my partner (who has celiac) shouldn't eat it.

Amazing meal. Most of the menu is gluten free, and the cashier made suggestions on what to order. I was visiting from out of town but would definitely eat here as often as I could. I got the sampler “5 Star” platter with spicy noodles, peanut sauce and spicy sauce, and eggplant as a side.

All sauces and meats are gf, so you can order everything off the menu except flour wraps and dumplings. It's rare to find an Asian restaurant that is so celiac friendly. I've been many times and have never gotten sick.

I don’t understand all the great reviews. I went and mentioned gluten free and basically said they use regular soy sauce So if you want 100% gluten free you can only choose from tofu or shrimp and can only have plain rice. I showed him how on the menu there is no symbol that shows the spicy glass noodles have gluten and he said but it’s already mixed with soy sauce... so I think they actually have a very poor understanding of how to label gluten on their menus and falsely advertise

The staff are friendly & helpful, and the food is delicious! The gentleman taking our order walked us thru the menu for each of our separate allergies (kids #1 has a pistachio/cashew allergy, #2 allergic to dairy, I am celiac). He was very patient & gave us great recommendations. The entire restaurant is dairy & tree nut free & the only gluten is in the flour tortilla, dumplings & a few individually wrapped desserts. We will definitely be back on our next trip thru STL.

This is my frequent place in St. Louis area. I go here 2 times or more a month, and the food, service, and GF implementation with their food is consistent and thorough. I cannot say enough about the pleasing use of spices and sauces. Never gotten sick and I'm confident I never will. I'm celiac BTW.

Like others have said everything except the dumplings and flour tortillas are gluten free. Staff was helpful in helping me order and told kitchen staff about my condition to have them take extra precautions (although not really needed). I got a rice paper wrap and the spicy eggplant both were great!

Wonderful place for anyone with celiac. Everything except the dumplings are gf. Proteins, sauces, sides, etc are all safe. Wait can be long but it's worth it.
