Had the orange chicken, chicken fried rice and a cinnamon sugar mochi donut. So good! Haven’t had orange chicken in probably a decade. Also nice to try the mochi donuts. Really yummy

Basically nothing marked “gluten free” is actually celiac safe. All fried food shares the same oil. Major bummer. They shouldn’t mark food gluten free if it fried in the same oil!

Went in this past week. Was informed only 3 menu items are celiac safe, everything else goes in a shared fryer. So disappointed to miss out on what sounds like some great food.

The menu has many more items marked as gluten free, but again, the shared fryer is an issue for me. I believe the chow mein, the cauliflower, and one other item are celiac safe. I went on a weekend, so they must have changed their weekend-only dedicated fryer policy. Oh well.

Tips


Was super excited to try this place due to their GF options. Showed up on a Saturday at dinner time and even though they had open tables, they told us it was “impossible” to seat our party. We understood as we did have 7 people but we were not given any info other than it would be “impossible”. Could have been delivered more kindly. Bummed we didn’t get to try the food

Wow! Knowledgeable staff, delicious food, and great atmosphere. The flavors are so fresh and delicious. We had salt & pepper shrimp, kung pao cauliflower, chow mein, orange chicken, and 3 flavors of donut. The donuts are ACTUALLY fried which is amazing for gluten free. The food is hot, delicious, and fresh. Can’t recommend this place enough. We’ll be back.

Super cute and friendly space... The servers are really nice and professional, and will do everything they can to answer your questions or concerns... 🤍

Clearly marked menu, and good prices...

Buuuut, Unfortunately despite saying they are Gluten-free on the menu, they fry their food in the same fryer, which is cross-contaminated. So for Celiac folks like myself, avoid anything fried which is about 50% (6 of 11) of the GF marked items.

But their Fried Rice, Chow Mein and most of their starters marked GF are safe (just not the Kung Pao cauliflower 😞)

I went with the Beef Chow Mein w/ GF vermicelli noodles. The flavor was amazing, and everything was super fresh and cooked perfectly.

Great space, people, and taste. Hopefully they will figure out a GF dumpling wrap, and get a dedicated fryer.

Side note... Apparently on Friday to Sunday, they use a dedicated fryer for their donuts... But only on the weekend.

The real deal, omg. One of the better GF fried rices I’ve ever had and tons of veggies. Love eating fried food again too. I didn’t ask if they have a separate GF frier so will report back.

Food was great! Unfortunately their gluten free orange chicken is fried in a shared fryer so they are not truly gluten free. But the gluten free chow mein is great! Also, AMAZING GF MOCHI DONUTS!!!! I’m very sensitive to gluten and cross contamination and I didn’t get sick at all!

Went here based on previous reviews. Was informed orange chicken was “a little bit fried” in a non dedicated fryer so they didn’t recommend it. Server continued to talk us out of everything on the menu until we left. Then she straight up said it was probably not a good idea to eat there. Very strange they even mark items GF on the menu.

The servers are very knowledgeable about what on the menu is gluten free/can be made gluten free. Every gluten free item is marked on the menu, besides the chow mein which can be made gluten free upon request. Let the server know that you have a gluten allergy and they will alert the staff to make sure there is no cross contamination in the process of making your food. Their best gf items in my opinion are their orange chicken, salt and pepper shrimp, walnut shrimp, and mochi donuts!
