I sure wish I read the prior reviews as I would not have gone to this establishment. My GF meal came early from a different server. First red flag. Luckily I only had a couple of bites as my server stopped me saying mine was not GF. Manager comped both meals. Nice. Now I get to Be sick for a week! Oh joy!!!

I ordered soup and ginger chicken off the gluten free menu. When my chicken came and I asked for gf soy sauce the waiter paused and said he forgot to specify gf chicken. He left the rice on the table so I assumed it was fine. After 20 minutes, my dinner finally comes. The next day I’m super sick. I looked at their allergy menu and I don’t think the soup or the rice were gluten free. Also they charged me for my full meal which I think is ridiculous considering I had to sit there while everyone else ate. I remember a few years ago they were very careful with gluten free food but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. I’m definitely never going back here.

They have a gf menu and dedicated wok but my server was clueless. They brought out the non GF version of the chicken with broccoli and luckily I caught that it was not on a special plate as it was supposed to be. They made the GF version quickly but I'd be skeptical when you eat here.

I have UC and haven't been to my favorite restaurant P.F. Chang's, since diagnosis. I was encouraged by previous reviews so I went there for dinner with a friend on Friday, 7/21/17. I'm already vegan; I wrote a small list of foods I cannot eat on my low-FODMAP diet and gave it to my server, Keegen. He spoke with kitchen staff and told me my dinner choice, coconut curry veggies, is gluten free and could be made without onion and garlic. I asked to have tofu added..no problem. I requested white rice and eventually our meals were served. My dinner was delicious, very flavorful although a little watery so I added all the rice, which helped. I forgot to ask for no celwry so picked the few out. It's now the next day and I feel great. No issues at all! I recommend this testaurant as definitely GF friendly but do bring your list of ingredients you cannot have and request the low-FODMAP version of your meal. Not all menu items are friendly to our illness so check their ingredient list online before going there.

Finally a trusted Asian food restaurant!! So delicious and lots of options on their yummy gluten free menu. I usually get the chicken & broccoli with the egg drop soup. I have not tried their gf desserts yet, but I will when I don't spend my whole budget on the meal.

They really go above and beyond to make sure your meal remains Gluten Free. Your dish is specially marked as Gluten Free on special plates and the entire staff is trained to help eliminate cross contamination risks.

Even better the food is delicious!

I have been here many times in the last few months and have never had a problem. As usual for PF Chang's you're brought a fortune cookie with the check. Use some common sense.

We needed a restaurant that was truly GF (I'm celiac) and truly kid-friendly (my daughter and I were crossing the entirety of the state en route to Vermont, and my 2- and 4-year old grankids were along for the ride). P.F. Chang's appears on everyone's list. I admit, my ginger chicken and broccoli tasted pretty good, and I did not suffer any ill effects. However, it took over an hour for us to be served, and that's asking a lot of such young children (or anyone). Though they provide a cute paper mat for coloring (and crayons), they don't offer anything in the way of kid-sized cutlery or bowls; the kids were expected to use some of the largest, heaviest forks I've ever seen at a restaurant! Not quite sure why we were left in limbo for so long -- no explanation for the endless wait was provided -- but we would never, ever return.

I had my first gluten free meal out here and was really disappointed. It was my first time explaining to a waitress that I was gf. She reassured me that it would all be gf. Well as great as it tasted, I was so sick later. Either it was not a gf meal or there was cross contamination. Afraid to go back :(

Similar to the previous reviewers, my Nima has been detecting gluten when I eat here. I used to eat here all the time but noticed it’s hit or miss feeling sick afterwards. Over the summer, I ordered fried rice, Mongolian beef and egg drop soup. I tested each item twice and Mongolian beef came back twice for gluten, unfortunately. I decided to try it again today since I remembered the chicken fried rice came no gluten and I felt fine after eating it. I ordered the gf chicken fried rice again and unfortunately, the Nima found gluten. I immediately called the restaurant and spoke with the manager who coincidently has celiac and told me that we need to call and place the order directly with the manager to lessen the chance of cross contamination. She also told me that others with a Nima had called to complain and I wasn’t the only one standing up for this issues. Thank you to the other reviewers for using your Nima and taking it up with the restaurant; hopefully some day we will be able to eat there safely again because the menu is amazing!

I love this place, i’ve only had an issue once and that was on the waiter i had not the kitchen. The gluten free entrees should ALWAYS come out on the white plates if it’s not a white plate send it back. the egg drop soup is gluten free normally and the food is so good!
