I have been here several times and enjoy the sweet and sour chicken and original chicken and shrimp. There are other choices as well. Yummy. i always tell them gluten free and severe allergy. takes a little longer to prepare but never sick. I have ordered online a lot during the pandemic and no issues. I even went at the height of lunch today and no issues.

I LOVE this place! The hostess has celiac as well and explained that they clean all equipment and woks prior to cooking gluten free. They take all GF menu items seriously. They have a separate prep space in the back to ensure safety of the dish. Most of the time, the meal comes out marked GF, but this last time, they didn’t put a GF to-go lid on it. My husband asked about the meal and they confirmed it was still safe and made GF. I’ve found my fav take-out Asian place! 10/10 recommend the sweet and sour chicken with GF fried rice!

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!

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.

Love the food. Fresh, hot and fabulous! Nice gluten free selection, even gluten free soy sauce. I ordered the gluten free Pei Wei Spicy Chicken with brown rice and it was excellent (especially if you like a little spice).

You can ask for sweet and sour non-breaded chicken over rice noodles.

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.

Every time I visit Florida I make a stop at PeiWei. I have celiacs and love that I can eat here without the risk of being sick.

They only have one gluten free option, the Pei Wei original chicken. It's not bad but spicy. They also don't have GF soy sauce to go with your rice and the chicken didn't have a lot of sauce.

I’ve been coming here for a while now and I haven’t gotten sick. I like that if I am craving Chinese food I can just come here. There is not to many places for us celiac people and pei wei satisfies my cravings.
