    Gluten free items are clearly marked however items that are marked “gluten free option” may not be. No dedicated fryer and some pre-prepped food may not be completely gluten free as they are made in the same pan as the non-gf versions of the same dish. That being said, only one waitstaff was knowledgeable however our waiter referred to him for help for any questions. I had the tofu pho, best veggie pho I’ve ever had, thus the four stars. I was hoping to try the vegan flan which is gf but didn’t have enough room for dessert. Overall, worth checking out and going back to, especially with vegetarian folks.

    We liked this and appreciated the menu labeled things gluten free. However when we first got there - right before the dinner shift came in- we had a waitress who was extremely nervous about gf and didn't understand what that meant ( we said that celiac is a gluten allergy to explain). She totally stressed us or saying she didn't think our daughter could eat anything etc. The next shift came along with the owner who assured us what we got was 100percent gluten free ( but with no guarantee). My daughter seems fine and the food was good vegan Chinese but the stress wasn't worth it.

    This place is a true find for those of us needing to be gluten and dairy-free! The restaurant name suggests vegetarian, but the menu is vegan. They get the freshest vegetables (organic when possible) and I did confirm the tofu is organic. Their dishes on the menu will have the following designations:* Gluten Free (GF)* Can be made Gluten Free (GF OPT)* Contains Nut (NUT)* Can be made Nut Free (NUT FREE OPT) I ordered the tofu dish with bell peppers and onions. They were able to make it not so spicy for me since it is a regularly spicy dish. I will be coming back for more!
