They have many gf options and dedicated gf areas for cooking & preparing. They even asked if I wanted gf soy sauce. I am celiac and felt very safe eating there with no adverse reactions at all. They even have separate dishes to distinguish gf.

I have eaten here several times. Despite being a chain, the staff is knowledgeable and I have never had an issue.

This location has had some ups and downs. We have always gotten gluten free food, but the overall question and restaurant service varies.

My friend and I went in March, and they seem to be on the upswing. Service was good, but a little slow towards the end.

It still is one of our favorite places to grab a bite before the movies

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!

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 :(

Plenty of gluten free options clearly marked on the menu. Our waitress was very good about repeating my order back and saying “Gluten Free Fried Rice” etc.

Very yummy!

2018: The one time we dined in I got sick, So we get food to go and haven’t had a problem. When I did get sick we spoke to a manager and she made sure to go the extra mile and monitors the kitchen more closely now. Update: 5/2024 hubby treated me to gluten free fried rice for teacher appreciation week (love my job!) and unfortunately there must’ve been some gluten in there. We have visited here a couple times per year and this is the second time I have been glutened so unfortunately I will not be back. Tums are a true friend right now.

I asked our server on two separate occasions about how they prepare the food and they both told us they prepare the gluten free dishes in a separate area of the kitchen. They have gluten free soy sauce packets as well if you ask. I come here regularly and the food is good. Gluten free dishes come out on a different colored plate too.
