GF menu looked good, but restaurant was not very clean.
FINALLY Asian food that is gluten free, inexpensive, and delicious! This place is amazing! TONS of gluten free options and they cook it in a separate area with clean utensils. They even have bottles of gluten free soy sauce available.
Finally a GF option in the neighborhood! Clearly marked menu and helpful staff. To-go order was labeled GF and was on receipt.
Delicious GF and soy free fried rice & excellent GF calamari!!! So yummy! A definite must when in Waco!
Mama fus is supposed to be pretty safe for gluten free. In most cases I would say this is true. This particular location I have had multiple complications on multiple visits spanning since they have opened. I tried them again hoping things would change. I want to believe it is safe, yet always something is amiss. No orange in my orange chicken? Noodles in my other meal, twice in a row. Etc. it sucks but you can't trust this location to not make you sick.
Is very gluten free, but it kinda seems like they just take the sauce off of everything, which leaves it bland and every dish tastes the same. Website says they us tamari in their gf sauces instead of soy sauce... But this location maybe doesn't? I've never gotten sick but I do wish they would use gf sauces
There's really only two entrees "gluten free" to choose from. They have no idea what cross contamination is. I ordered a dish with rice, and they gave me rice which was not gluten free. They "redid" the plate by scooping the rice off and adding the right rice. Save your money and don't get sick eating here
Not Gluten Free! A manager confirmed this when discussing their hotside operations. They cook GF food in same fryers as gluten containing products; same with other cooking methods. Their food is not gluten free. Resturant should make that clear on their menu.
When we started going to Mama's about 6 months ago, everything seemed fine. We are Celiac, and are very sensitive, and when Mama's continued to deliver on the GF promise we continued to go. That lasted up until about 2 months ago, when something just changed. New chef, new recipes, we're not sure. No matter what we order, specifying GF, we get very sick. It seems like Mamas is now just cooking up their normal recipes and slapping a GF sticker on them.
Plenty of GF options. I spoke to the manager before eating here. Although they do not use seperate cookware, they do clean everything before cooking GF stuff. Even ordering for delivery once the driver told me the manager made sure the kitchen cleaned everything before cooking my food. I have never gotten sick eating here.
Fresh, friendly and VERY SAFE! Gluten Free menu is one of the biggest we've seen and the staff is well trained. Lettuce wraps and Mongolian dish were very good. Portion size and price were both a pleasant surprise, too. Download the app to earn points if you plan on returning. Can't wait to go back!
I love Mama Fu's! The gluten free options taste amazing and staff is always friendly!
I've been to this location twice and both times was served meals with tofu in it. (Their tofu is not GF.) I was very clear when ordering that we had severe allergies. The first time the manager did comp my meal. The second time the manager have us $5 off coupons for "when we come back."
My husband is a Celiac and we decided to try Mamu Fu's when we found out they had a Gluten Free menu. We were surprised with all the choices that were available. He ate the lettuce wraps and pad Thai and gave it 5 stars. There are great GF lunch options and they also had GF beer (Angry Orchard). They accidentally brought out the wrong dish for my husband, but the server asked if he was Celiac and promptly corrected it because the dish had tofu in it (which is not GF). We were glad he took the time to notice it and have it corrected as it could have been a bad day had he eaten it. The owner came by our table to check on us and she told us that the staff is trained in Celiac disease. A lot of restaurants may have GF menus, but the staff isn't always trained on what being GF actually means and what could happen to a Celiac if they consume it. We both loved the food and thought they had a good price point. Friendly, helpful staff, clean environment and they even had San-J GF soy sauce. They also deliver! We will be adding this restaurant to our list of Celiac friendly restaurants!
Good selection of GF items. Staff training & service needs work. Food is not great.
