We found out too late only one of the two meals we ordered was actually gluten-free. If you don't know what the gf version of their food looks like on sight, don't risk eating here. :(
I was a little disappointed in the variety of GF choices. I choose the spicy shrimp & chicken. It was pretty spicy but the dish in general had really good flavor.
Celiacs beware! Although the gluten free options are delicious, I asked how they prepare their gluten free items and was told they do not have separate cookware for gluten free meals. They wash the pot and change gloves. If you're celiac that may not be the best option as there is cross contamination but if you're just gluten sensitive it might be ok. Unfortunately I'll have to scratch this one of my list :(
Finding a decent GF place poses a challenge, especially while traveling away from familiar home locations. My wife and I both just ate there and let's just say the food was...... Delish! The wait staff was familiar with our dietary needs as well as the GF options the restaurant offers. There is nothing worse than getting the "deer in the headlight" look when you mention that you don't eat gluten. If we all take the time to post feedback on this site all of us GF's will have an easier time finding good safe places to eat. Wherever our travels take us.
LOVED IT!!! NO GLUTEN REACTION!! My husband and I are both extremely sensitive to cross-contamination, like a couple of crumbs from an accidental crouton causing a severe reaction kind of sensitive. Last night, we experienced Pei Wei in Lubbock, TX for the first time, and it was amazing. The food was very, very fresh, there were several g-free selections, and the staff was very knowledgeable about Celiac. I highly recommend this location to anyone who is gluten intolerant or Celiac.
Rice was brittle and dry, asked for new batch, replacement was same. Plate not designated as GF, but waiter mentioned that it was as he set it down. Did not feel bad after eating, so cross contamination was non-existent or low. Eating here is fine, but not preferred if only because of the low quality of the food at this location.
I eat here once a week and always enjoy the Pei Wei Original (formerly the Pei Wei Spicy). They seem to really understand gluten free, I've never had issues. Definitely recommend!
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 got the gluten free sweet and sour chicken and really enjoyed it. They have a handful of gluten free options to choose from, which is nice. It is clearly marked on their menu. I would definitely go back.
Love that the food is clearly marked on the menu, but the taste is horrible. I tried the sweet and sour chicken and the wrap. Too bad...
This was our first visit. We really enjoyed our meal. We were able to order Fried Rice without the soy sauce and added the GF Orgainic Tamari Tamari Soy sauce that they offer. The food was great! We are to happy to have another GF choice.
Have eaten there several times with my daughter (who is super sensitive celiac) and we both were fine. Fast casual type restaurant where you order at the counter and they bring the food to you. Wish they had a larger selection and GF lettuce wraps like PF Changs.
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!
On my first trip they mistakenly breaded the shrimp in their Pei Wei original option (it's a good thing I'm not Celiac and just sensitive). The next two visits were prepared correctly and pretty good.
I’ve gotten sick too many times despite communicating 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 have eaten here 3 times since they opened and never had an issue
I have never been sick at this location. Make sure to mention it is for an allergy! I order the Pei Wei spicy with broccoli and it tastes very similar to general tsos! Love this place.
Everything was delicious. I am especially pleased at the care they took to make the gluten free meal for our friend who has celiacs.
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.
I love the gluten free sweet and sour shrimp. I also like the chicken salad rolls. They are willing to put entrees over salad instead of rice if you ask. I haven’t had any issues. Service is fast, accurate, and careful.
Our old standby for good Asian gluten free food! Love the spicy chicken and rice and salads.
The staff is indeed very friendly . I ordered the sweet and sour chicken . I was told by the manager that they use a potato based starch for breading. Unfortunately I became ill before I made it home . Perhaps cross contamination. I don't feel safe eating there again .
I only went there once but I ordered the Sweet and Sour Chicken from the gluten free menu. It tasted alright but I was sick within 30 minutes of finishing my meal.
The sweet & sour chicken was very good! The brown rice was pretty dry but I still enjoyed my meal overall and the fact I didn’t have to explain what GF is. Would love it if they had an egg role (been wanting one for so long), fried rice, or sushi available too.
Consistently amazing, always attentive to cross contamination, and the food is great if you’re like me and order the same thing every time you go somewhere.
