Everything is gluten free and comes out of a ghost kitchen. Not sure how that works, but I’ve never had an issue with CC. There is no seating or anything, but the pricing is reasonable and the food is delicious. I love the sweet chicken kimchi.

If you go in person it’s a little daunting because it’s part of a food hall. No fear. Every restaurant has their own kitchen and Moon Bowls is all gluten free. Love their spicy fried chicken bowl. Never gotten sick.

I have eaten here 3 times and 2/3 times I have gotten very very sick. This is not a 100% gluten free restaurant. Their website states that the ingredients may contain gluten via cross contamination.

Since everything on the menu is gluten-free, I was able to explore and enjoy the menu without any concerns at all. I just got what I wanted without making any sacrifices, and I enjoyed it thoroughly! This location is a bit unusual. It is essentially a warehouse that has many restaurants behind closed doors. You place your order either online or on one of the screens in the lobby, and then it is completed and placed in a locker for you to pick up. You can either eat in the small lobby area or take it to go. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I felt great afterwards.

I’ve been eating moonbowls regularly for the last year and the only thing I’ve ever had a reaction to is the Sweet Potato Noodles. My favorite meal to get is the fried chicken platter over brown rice with broccoli and sweet potatoes. The sweet barbecue sauce and the spicy gojuchang sauce are both great as well. As a previous comment mentions, the place is a shared kitchen but a lot of the options in that kitchen are gluten free and they always have the option to note any allergies for the sake of caution. Note: The best user experience here is to order through the Moonbowls app directly rather than the Forrest Website.
