    Not sure what happened to this place 4 to 5 years ago they had more gluten free options. Now it’s just sad the food is questionable about the freshness and the people working there would rather be doing something else. I got sick here

    I used to eat there a lot but the past two times I've been recently I've gotten cross contaminated. If you're a celiac you should probably avoid it if you can.

    Always had cross-contamination issues even with there one GF dish. Eat there at your own risk. Service is always terrible. I've had better experiences at other locations with no issues with food it's just this location that is terrible.

    They have several new gluten free options, and they cook food in separate woks for every order. I have never gotten sick here. Sometimes The gluten-free dishes have a little less flavor, but otherwise good food.

    Went in today to try the new gluten free menu. I watched my food be prepared in a different area by a different person than the regular, gluten containing items. My meal was labeled gluten free and they even provided tamari sauce with it. The food tasted fine -it wasn't anything special. I felt that with their new menu they have have developed better procedures for ensuring food is gluten free. I was also able to use a coupon on gluten free which I was not able to do previously.

    I wasn’t very hungry or sure of the safety of this location so I ordered a side of white rice. The family we were with ordered gluten free items and said they’ve eaten there safely, but the waitress/employee who brought food to the table went back and forth 3 times trying to check which was gluten free and which wasn’t. One of the gluten free plates had beef on it (not part of the meal) near the rice which was questionable as far as getting an allergen-free plate. I was glad with my choice as it seemed the employees didn’t take allergies seriously.

    We used to have a good experience here--but now after 7 or 8 times of "one more chance" we never will again. I've become sick numerous times with my gluten free meal, been served chickens completely raw in side, given a salad of rotten lettuce, just to make a few incidences.

    Ok, I have given them multiple chances, but this is now the 3rd time I've gotten glutened at this location. GM swore he was retraining staff but that's clearly not the case or their staff really doesn't care. We even triple checked with the staff this time and I found noodles strands mixed in. They clearly don't grasp the severity.

    The staff is either uninformed or does not take gf seriously. The woman taking my order needing confirmation with another employee about gluten free. They brought me out the wrong food but called it what I had ordered. I’ve eaten at other Pei Weis many times so I knew the difference and asked for my order. Another employee brought out the same plate of food and again misnamed it. I repeated what I had ordered, gf pei wei original with shrimp. The plate of food I was brought for the third time was brown, as in contained soy sauce, not gf. The employee called it gf but I was too skeptical and disgusted with the ordeal by then (my kids had finished their meals) I left. Never had a problem at a Pei Wei before. Disappointing.

    They were able to make gluten free fried rice and gluten free Pei Wei Spicy Chicken. The menu has a "can be prepared gluten-free" icon shown on the items that it applies to. To make my chicken breaded, they tossed it in potato starch before putting it in the pan. Very light, crunchy, and all-around tasty!

    I haven't been in about 3 months, due to my order being wrong 8 times in a row. Two of the times they were not gluten free, I could tell immediately by the texture that they were not and I was originally argued with by the staff until the kitchen confirmed what I knew. The manager was very rude and unhelpful. When I called corprate they were very nice and concerned and gave me $10 off my next meal. The next time I went was the last because they messed my order up again, and I always order the second thing and I just got tired of the fight. I never had any trouble the previous 3 years I'd been going. Anyways they do have gluten free food, it's just up to you if you think it's worth the risk.

    This has been my go to restaurant for gluten free for a couple of years. Always felt safe eating here,until two days ago. I ordered the GF sweet and sour chicken as usual. For some reason I felt uneasy about the food when it came, even asked the waitress if she was sure it was gluten free and was assured that it was. Well, it wasn't. I've been glutened big time and have two weeks of misery to look forward to. I won't be going back.
