Extremely safe for celiacs. Waitress was extremely knowledgeable, the chef, who is a celiac, stopped by the table to make sure everything was ok. The food was outstanding. The spare ribs appetizer was outstanding. Will definitely go back many times.

Heard of this cozy place from a local tiktoker, noglutengabby. So happy that they have a fryer just for gluten free items so it's celiac safe! We got the crispy imperial rolls, the Vietnamese crepe, and the GR fried rice. Everything tastes great and the server even asked if we had celiac disease when we ordered GF. The server was also sure to mention that the sauces they brought out with our meal were gluten free.

Absolutely delicious! Great Vietnamese food safe for Celiac. I ordered the shareable Shrimp dish (ate myself) and the vegan vermicelli noodle dish. Both dishes packed unbelievable flavor. They took my concerns very seriously, in fact the sous chef has celiac and is very strict. Would absolutely come back here!

The menu clearly indicates lots of wonderful gf dishes - apps, entrees, desert and even drinks. Everything we had was sooo flavorful and it’s great healthy fare too. You won’t believe how good the Setting Sun and the Egg Drop Coffee are on the drink menu - yum and nice to have so many gf options.

Oh my gosh, this place was great! The menu is very well marked and the server was knowledgeable about celiac and safety protocols. There are quite a few Gf options and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate! I highly highly recommend giving this place a try.

Amazing! The menu is labeled but the server told me if anything not labeled GF looks good to just tell him because they can easily make modifications to the meals. I had an appetizer, main course and desert and it was soooo good! Please stop by!

Every person here knew what celiac is and how to handle my food. The chef even came out to talk with me about it (a first for me). And there are SO many choices available! Prepare to actually have choices. And the food is delicious!

Really delicious. We ordered the fresh springs rolls with spicy chili cause (peanut sauce isn’t gf) and the pho. Both were really great. Our waitress was very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed our experience here.

I highly recommend Monsoon GR. The menu has their GF items marked. The only exception was the desserts. My waitress did check and informed me that the Vietnamese Delight and the Flourless Chocolate Cake were both GF. Everything I ate was delicious. (Shared and tried the pork skewers, summer meat balls, crispy rice cakes, and roasted salmon). I'm pretty sensitive and didn't react to anything! My waitress was lovely and put all allergy notes on all of my food and said the cooks would change their gloves. I also had the passion fruit strawberry oolong iced tea that was amazing!
