GF Chinese food!!!!! Celiac safe - just tell staff and they’ll take extra precautions with their already GF items. Orange chicken was great made with corn starch. Steamed veggies and rice super yummy too. Lots of options. Wish had one in my town!

Amazing customer service, staff was so helpful and friendly. Food was delicious, my kids were offered some fish food to feed the koi in the fish pond. Highly recommend! We had almond chicken, orange chicken and honey walnut shrimp with white rice. Yum!!

Gluten free items are marked on the menu. Many options are naturally gluten free. Large portions. First orange peel chicken I’ve had that’s gluten free. It was very good. My husband had chop suey which was gf although he has no dietary restrictions. I got to sample it too. Recommended!

This place was a nice surprise! They had a lot of gluten free options all identified on the menu. Of course I had to get the orange peel chicken and it was wonderful. Only misstep was they threw an egg roll on the side, so had to avoid that area of the plate. I’m a real sensitive celiac and had no problems afterwards.

It was FABULOUS. The GF orange chicken was better than non-GF I had before I had to change my diet.

Tha staff/owner was very nice and confirmed that many of their items are GF and made with cornstarch. Had the orange chicken and corn soup, both very good, and no issues.

This is our go to place for Chinese. Their menu now marks what is GF. This includes our favorite orange chicken and honey walnut shrimp which they use corn starch. Other items they can make with GF soy sauce.

Had a few meat options that they cook with cornstarch so they’re crispy! The orange chicken was great, and they offered to make fried rice with gluten free soy sauce. Gluten free options are marked on regular menu.

Hardly any gluten free options. We had to ask 4 different staff members about what was gluten free before we got a straight answer, they each told us something different. What we ended up ordering had barely any flavor.

Love this place. Been three times. Never sick. No gluten free menu but they know their food and they know what's safe. I usually get sizzling rice soup and an entree with one of the white sauces. I tell them gf and they know what to do. Bring your own soy sauce!

Celiac friendly?
