Twice now that I’ve gotten sick after eating there. 😞 Disappointing because it does seem like they take precautions but I’m not risking a 3rd time.

We go to Molly Woo’s for special occasions due to the cost. However, like all CM restaurants, you know you’re going to get something dependable that is gluten-free. We are thankful further gluten-free options and the ability to have safe food experience.

I love the huge number of gluten free options. I prefer to order(as opposed to eating in the restaurant) I have never gotten sick. Their sesame chicken is so yummy and crunchy. Their noodles, I could eat a bathtub of those noodles. they lose a star because they are quite pricey.

I have been there twice since being diagnosed with celiac. They have made a point of marking it down and reassuring me that it is gluten free. They also bring me gluten free soy sauce without me having to ask.

Best gf food I’ve had anywhere. Go all the time and never have any issues. If there’s something you want to change up just ask bc most of the sauces are gf so if you want orange shrimp instead of orange beef just ask. All the servers I’ve ever had are super great and are happy to change things up for you. Spare ribs and fried calamari are delicious. Haven’t made it to the desserts bc I eat my entire meal bc it’s so good LOL

When I called, they said gluten allergies were what they dealt with the most. They have lots of precautions in the kitchen to make safe food and quite a large GF menu. All GF dishes come out with a pick so you know they're GF. I got a sushi roll with GF soy sauce and lo mein. The portions are huge. Very satisfied with all of it!

Always great food! The garlic chicken is the best (very spicy). They are very careful with cross contamination and flag the orders when taken as well as mark the food with a little pick to ensure it’s not mistaken. Our server even made sure to tell the kitchen that I celiac as an extra step.

This was my first visit. I was in Columbus for an event and decided to try Molly Woo's based on the reviews on Find Me Gluten Free. My mom and I are very impressed! I didn't feel like I was deprived of having a good meal. The service was excellent, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. The food was delicious and so many options that I had trouble deciding. I highly recommend Molly Woo's.

Ordered a boba drink since boba is GF and the server without being asked double checked the ingredient list on the boba container and let us know that while it doesn’t contain gluten it doesn’t say GF (meaning manufacturer may have gluten in the facility) and I was wowed by her knowledge and thoughtfulness. The ribs are phenomenal and we get those and the lettuce cups every time.🧋🥡🥢

I ordered the same dish as my daughter. Mine was too be gluten free. Hers was not.

We ate, she said hers tasted "fishy". Mine was all right.

I began swelling up all over before we left the restaurant. My first wheat reaction in months.

Did they mix up our dishes?

Took massive amounts of benadryl to avoid the hospital. Swollen up like a balloon in pain on the couch today.

Ugh.

WARNING: The fortune cookie they give you at the end is not gluten free. Fortunately I checked the label. Outside of that small mishap the waiter was very knowledgeable and let me know not to have the soy sauce at the table and brought me a gluten free soy sauce. He was extremely friendly and answered all my questions. The host was very friendly too. Food was very good and I didn’t get sick and will come back next time I’m in Columbus.

I'm allergic to wheat, so while I don't have celiac, I definitely know when I've been exposed. I alerted them to my allergy, and everything ordered for our table was from their gluten-free menu. Each dish was clearly marked GF with a bamboo skewer, but I still had a reaction. The food was delicious, but not worth getting sick.

Fantastic!!!!!! We ate dinner there last night, with our two GF kids, who also happened to be quite picky when it comes to Chinese food. Well, this place was a total win! The chicken fried rice was amazing, and my son enjoyed the kids lo mein so much, he didn't even care that it was made with rice noodles, and not his old favorite wheat noodles. The menu of gluten-free selections was pretty extensive, and even included things like pineapple chicken, where the chicken is "breaded" in rice flour and fried. Everything was so good! We will be back!

My first trip here was for dinner last night which turned out to be extremely busy with prom dates and other diners. Not to worry though, the hostess was aware of the note I made on our reservation through Open Table that I had to eat GF and have celiac.

I was surprised at the size of their GF menu—I’m not used to having so many options! Our server was extremely knowledgeable of how the GF courses were prepared and had recommendations for me. From the GF menu we split an appetizer of the Woo’s GF Spare Ribs (sticky/saucy but tasty), the GF Firecracker Chicken (very sweet but paired well with the fried rice), the GF Fried Rice for $1 upcharge (just a basic fried rice but it came out on its own plate so there was less potential of mixing it up with the regular fried rice), the GF Szechwan Green Beans (cooked just right and well seasoned), and the Woo’s GF Garlic Chicken (nice and savory, also great with the fried rice.)

Aside from everything needing a bit more heat/spice (all items other than the rice were marked as being “hot & spicy”) we had an awesome dinner with exceptional service. We’ll definitely be back!

My husband noted that I have Celiac disease when he made the reservation, and they automatically gave me a full gluten-free menu. We ordered all GF items — sushi, a noodle dish and a rice dish — so we could share, and they all came out with toothpicks indicating they were GF. They even offered GF fried rice as an option when we ordered our rice dish for $1 more. And the waiter brought me a fortune cookie and said he knew I couldn't eat it but that I might still like my fortune, which was very thoughtful. The food was good, especially the Caterpillar sushi roll.

I think the food and menu deserve a 5 star review! The reason I give the restaurant only 4 stars is there is nothing signaling to you the consumer that what they are putting in front of you is gf. I would feel better if there was a special plate or a small sign on a toothpick or even a sticker to reassure me that the food being brought to the table is in fact gf. Even just my server saying "your gluten free lettuce wraps ma'am!"
