    We get food from here on a fairly regular basis. I always do take-out... even if I'm eating in the restaurant. The take-out containers are safe. The restaurant plates & cutlery are not safe. Really emphasize when you're ordering you, that you have celiac disease and that you're extremely sensitive. Talk to manager. Food is yummy and reasonably priced.

    We have eaten here for at least six years, sometimes once a week, and I have only gotten contaminated once. James is knowledgable, as is Audry ( manager). Very accommodating to GF. Ask for double coated meat if you want it crispier. Love the Pei Wei spicy chicken salad, mild! Six options on the GF menu. If very sensitive, ask for them to burn the wok twice. 20 or so GF options!

    they only have two options for gluten free plates :/ and I had a reaction to their food so I'd pretty much stay the hell away if you are celiac or what I am which is gluten intolerant . it was a really bad experience !!!!!!

    After my celiac kids got violently ill the last two times we ate here, I complained via the online Pei Wei site. Customer service was outstanding and they sent us 4 free meal gift cards to use and reassured me they have reviewed gf safety guidelines, etc. so we tried it again. I was told that they do not have separate utensils or woks for GF. They put oil in the wok and heat it to a very high temperature and call it good. Folks, please note that gluten is a protein and it doesn't "burn off" like they describe. I do NOT recommend this for anyone with celiac, it is simply not safe.

    I have eaten here once since being GF. I had high hopes but got sick. I'm very reluctant to try it again even though I know mistakes happen. just hate to spend money on a meal just to be sick. I am sure I will try it again one day.

    If you have celiac disease ask for your food to be in take out container, even if you are dining in. This will avoid cross-contamination from the servers.

    I gave this a four star due to the tastiness of their food. They're GF menu is very small, like 4 items, but I haven't gotten sick. They're GF options are carefully planned, as they go so far as to cook the veggies in water instead of veggie broth because the broth contains some barley. This is a sister restaurant to PF Chang's, so they have a decent amount of training, although, not as much as PF Chang's does.

    The GF chicken was so hard it was inedible and they didn’t have rice so they gave me rice noodles which were also hard. There wasn’t any sauce with the chicken. I’m never coming back. They also have so few options for GF it’s a shame. Why is this so highly rated? It’s misleading. It was a waste of money

    I love Pei Wei, but be very aware. I ordered the gf sweet and sour chicken and they sent regular. I asked if it was gf and was assured it was, but I didn’t think it was, so had him double check and it wasn’t gluten free, it was the regular. This would’ve landed me in the hospital. Also, a couple of times later I got pink chicken, so just be extra vigilant.

    The cashier taking my order basically made me feel like I was putting her out by asking for a gluten free meal. The menu is clearly marked though and it was good food. Do other than the less than helpful cashier it was a good experience. Note the that the shrimp us breaded in potato flour so that is disconcerting to see but they assured me it was safe. I think they are pretty careful in the cooking here.

    I’ve been eating at this location for 2.5 years with no problem. The last time I was there, I thought I might have found a tiny piece of pasta in my gf edamame, but thought it was part of a bean, and I never reacted (I’ve been asymptomatic due to pregnancy, though). Today there were two larger pieces of noodle in the edamame. They either used the same water for noodles/edamame or shared strainer, not safe for those with celiac!

    Wish they had more options. My wife is Celiac and we have eaten at the Troy site, dozens of times. My wife has never been contaminated. She would be ill within twenty minutes if so. That said, the company does not interested in expanding the menu. We have contacted them and get a form letter response. adding to my three year old review. today is 1/11/18. Sure wish they would expand gf menu. To be fair though, the only reason we don't frequent Pei Wei more often is the limited gf menu. My wife has never been contaminated here. We probably eat here a dozen or more times a year. I changed the rating because this site is about gf and they are celiac safe.

    Pei Wei is only one of three restaurants I will eat at. I have Celiac and am hypersensitive and have never had any issues at the Woodbury location. Yes their GF Menu is very limited, but I just rotate the three items I can have when I do go out, so it works for me. I only eat out once a month or two so it is really a treat for me.

    I’ve had good experiences with Pei Wei in the past but not this time. I ordered the gluten free Pei Wei Original, (used to be called the Pei Wei Spicy) one of the like 3 gf options. This was my first time ordering this dish so I didn’t know what it was supposed to look like but after eating a few bites I noticed peanuts which weren’t supposed to be on the pei wei original. I took my dish up to the front and said are you sure that this is the pei wei original and not the kung pao? The guy checked his screen and looked up my order and assured me that it was the original, which to me doesn’t make since because they could have gotten my order right and messed up while making it. I walked away but didn’t eat anymore. After looking up pictures of the kung pao and original, I’m positive they gave me the kung pao (not gf). Now I am in bed sick, Thank you Pei Wei.
