It is so nice to find a good Chinese place that actually has GF options. The menu has them and their vegan options clearly listed and my server double checked my order to ensure my fried rice with chicken was made gluten free, which I think means they cook it without soy sauce but the rice still has an amazing flavor.
Make no mistake: here is your gluten free sanctuary for Chinese food. Davey is an absolute pleasure to speak with and made me feel like royalty. I have not had breaded Chinese in years. YEARS. This gem will bring all of your favorites back into your life with an extensive selection that makes deciding a difficult task. The inside has a fantastic atmosphere- very relaxed and tasteful. I have been lurking on yelp for a long time to find my gluten (and dairy) free cuisine and this is my first review. Well deserved.
FOOD POISONING! I went midday around 2 pm and was the only person in there... when i got my chicken it was a bit cold.... moments adter eating i got a stomach pain tha lasted for hours and stuff was pouring out of both ends of me!!! I can't say if it was GF or not based on how sick i was for 2 days it ruined my vacation! Raw garlic helped calm the symptoms...i dont trust this place! I wish i knew better
As much as I appreciate PF Chang's leadership in GF Chinese food I still prefer to not eat at chain restaurants and it's nice to have variety. Enter Mandarette - an LA standard who now has a GF menu (GF symbols listed within menu). Pretty much all the veggie dishes are GF and a good selection of the meats and seafood as well. That said, BEWARE because many of the dishes they list (e.g. Salt&Pepper Chicken, Tofu... Sesame Chix...) are fried in the same fryer as the egg rolls and any other battered dish. I spoke with the manager who thought that the hot oil burned off the gluten (Wrong!). Once I explained that was incorrect he thanked me for the information and said that they should get a small dedicated fryer. I'll check in with them in the future to see if they in fact do. If so, this is a great bet. If not, the non-deep fried options are tasty as well.
Fantastic fresh Chinese food with many gluten-free options and safe for Celiacs! Chicken is battered with potato flour so I can enjoy their orange chicken, general tso's, etc. Delicious shrimp and veggie dishes. Haven't tried the beef yet but will next time. Very impressed and excited to have found this place!
