I have ordered takeout from this establishment a couple of times and have been really pleased with both the taste of the food and the precautions they take to ensure that my food isn’t contaminated. I’ve never had an issue with reactions after eating there.

My daughter got very ill from eating here. I don't think they gave us a gluten free entre. It looked like the regular sweet and sour chicken with the package marked gluten free.

They have expanded their gf menu to include, Mongolian beef, Kung pao shrimp, broccoli beef, sweet and sour chicken or shrimp, pro wei original shrimp, chicken salad... they also have an upgrade option for cauliflower fried rice. It was the best I have ever had. We had the the psi wei shrimp and sweet and sour chicken. Delicious!! They use potato starch for the breading on all their deep fried entries, therefore the frier is gf.

They have two choices: the sweet and sour or the peiwei original spicy, with either chicken or shrimp as meat. White or brown rice. Got the pw original with chicken. I was surprised to see it breaded! But they told me it was potato starch breading, and totally GF. Tasted AMAZING. I missed the breaded stuff! I hope they get more gf options in the future! Posted a pic in the photos section.

Try the spicy chicken, I love it! Wish they offered more GF choices, but the 2 they offer are really good and I love this place. Nice staff, call or order ahead online for super fast service... good value too!

I do appreciate that Pei Wei offers gluten free menu items. But the sauce for these is virtually the same and very vinegar heavy. Perhaps it's to make up for the omission of soy sauce? Whatever the reason, it's not a good result.

Half a dozen or so gf options. You need to request the gf menu. Not to sure that they are familiar with gf protocol, or that they care about it. Haven't gotten sick there, it's kid friendly, so we keep going, but I wonder. ...

Always delicious. Limited menu, but It answers the crave for g/f Chinese food. Grateful for this option. I miss it when I travel.

I ordered the original chicken, checked that was the order and received Orange chicken. The person behind the counter was rude and would not hear my argument because she was too busy. Will never eat here again and likely not at one of these anywhere else.

Just found out this is FMGF founder Jason Elmore's favorite chain, eyyyyyy! Love Pei Wei, this location has consistently proved to be "safe" for Celiacs, and the Pei Wei app and rewards system are both simple to use. We typically do carryout and the quality remains pretty consistent. We've never had to specify "gluten free" in the order. We just order like non-GF folks, which is great. Recommended. Edit: There are a lot of GF items not listed on their dedicated GF menu. Celiac diner typically orders (no adverse effects) with regular chicken and white rice: Spicy General Tso's, Orange Chicken, Honey-Seared Chicken, Firecracker Chicken.

I’ve eaten here nearly weekly. They have a gluten free menu now and the food comes out with a gf sticker. I usually let the chef know that it’s an “allergy” too. Never gotten sick! :) Yum

It was my first time eating here since going GF for Celiac. They were great at informing me of their precautions and handling they do for GF items. Food was good and the service was awesome. They use all new utensils and cookware when prepping GF meals.
