They gave a GF menu, but the waiter said they can’t promise no CC. The waiter told me also someone brought a Nima sensor and it tested positive on most of the food.

Our server was pretty rude from the start. We ordered Mongolian beef and imperial chow mien off the GF menu and made sure to tell the server it was for an allergy. Not sure which dish did it, but I was REALLY sick after. Definitely got glutened

Friendly staff. Asked for gluten free items and brought a separate menu. Delicious food and lots of options. Split the Chinese Chicken Salad, made gf, and Moo Shu chicken. Had leftovers for the next day too.

So many choices on the gluten-free menu, it was hard to choose! I had the work peppered clams and Jamong noodles. Portions we're huge and the spicy dishes were really spicy. But the menu doesn't clearly indicate which dishes are spicy - it's in the description.

Excellent food and knowledgeable server. The sizzling rice soup was excellent - broth is very flavorful without any one flavor (or salt) dominating. Chow mein was made with Chow Fun rice noodles- but was very good. Almost got the moo-shy pork, but they did not have gf wrappers, just lettuce wrap option, so tried the soup instead. Glad I did.

This is amazing Chinese food. They have gluten free soy sauce and take great care to make sure there is no cross contamination in the kitchen. I've eaten here a few times and never gotten sick. And I'm a very sensitive celiac. Lots of options on their gluten free menu. Highly recommend!!!
