Nothing on the menu is labeled GF. It was somewhat difficult finding things to eat and the food was really not to my liking . Appetizer and main courses were brought together. Appetizer was the avocado and it was not bad. For the Main course we had crispy chicken which was the only thing we really liked. We had some beef soup (sent it back because it was too spicy for my wife but I didn’t like it either). Next we had Mongolian beef ex the soy sauce because their soy contains gluten. The Mongolian beef was like tenderized rubber meat. Yuck. No desserts were GF.

Was pleasantly surprised by the amount of gluten free options on the menu, which are pretty tasty. Asked the waitress about flour they use in gluten free-labeled fried menu items and she didn’t understand what we were asking. This was a red flag of course so I went with a naturally gluten free option in hopes there would be less chance I’d get sick. I notified the waitress I did have celiac and she said she would let the chef know. Never got sick from the food so must have worked out well.
