Good options, but nothing special. Has gf pipette noodles, and a rice noodles, that is also gluten free, and used in all of the Asian dishes. Each time we go it is a bit different, depending on the cashier. One time, we had to explain what we needed them to do, and they did those things, but they gave everyone in our order gf noodles. They also made me their gf Mac and cheese, and they added marinara sauce on top. I just wanted noodles and marinara, but it still tasted fine. The next time, everything went smoothly, and I got exactly what I asked for.

Online order downside- the special accommodations box, only has 16 characters, so you can not write anymore than "gluten allergy". I don't trust the establishment to know what to do with a gluten allergy, without being there.

Celiac

Do not online order, you can't put more than "gluten allergy", and i don't trust them to do it right without exact instructions

Obviously no cross-contamination guarantees but the manager did my order herself. They use specific pans to cook the gf pasta and the Mac and cheese was very good. Didn’t feel sick after. I would go back considering the price and the speed.

Ordered an entire meal for 4 that was all gluten free due to 3/4 of us having celiac. Had a side of chicken for one of the shared meals and 5 min in to eating, one of the employees came out with new chicken and said this one is actually gluten free - ok… hadn’t eaten the first one yet. Towards the end of the meal, questioned if one of the other meals was in fact GF. Brought up the meal to the counter and they said it was NOT gluten free noodles used in that meal. All young people working there that clearly did not understand the importance of dietary restrictions or illness that will follow. Did get a full refund and the manager’s number that I will follow up with.

They have a GF corn noodle and rice noodle options. Make sure to tell them you are Celiac, or they may not take as much care for a gluten “allergy.”
