Had the worst glutening in years after eating here. Looking back, I think the “gf” veggie fried rice I ordered was just regular fried rice and they slapped a gf sticker on it. I was sick for days. They’re dead to me and I’m so sad about it.

I order here occasionally and have never gotten sick. Good is always clearly labeled GF and packaged separately from other items. They do sometimes still throw in non GF fortune cookies so be cautious of that.

I have gotten sick here more than once. I think it depends on your server, how busy the restaurant is and other factors. I personally crossed it off my list, which is unfortunate.

I ordered the GF chicken lettuce dish, and my coworkers ordered the regular one. I could clearly see that my dish was prepared differently, it looked different and was on a different type of plate. They assured me they told the chef and that it was prepared in a dedicated wok. I felt good eating it, but it wasn’t as good as the regular was pre-celiac. Servers were very nice and understanding of my concerns.

I’ve never had a problem at this location, and I’m really sensitive. I’ve tested the food on a couple different occasions and it has always come up gluten free. I usually get takeout, it is always well labeled, with gluten free soy sauce, and the cashier checks that all the items are right. A little pricy, a little too sweet, but a good option.

Have eaten here numerous times and not gotten sick (and have Celiac). They are careful, have special plates to designate GF (so ask which ones if you want to be sure), and they have a pretty extensive menu. Wish the food were a teeny bit better but overall good and Chinese and safe so...!

Eaten here many times before but got glutened this evening...we ordered take out via their app - not sure what happened. And yes, I know it was from here - my reaction time is pretty exact. I'd go but wouldn't do take out again.

Have eaten here twice and had a great experience! The servers and chefs are very knowledgeable about allergies which makes me feel safe eating here. There are a number of gluten free options and my favorite is the Mongolian beef and fried rice.

Ordered shrimp with lobster sauce and found 3 pieces of what appear to be real noodles in there. My daughter is not GF and she cut it and inspected it and agrees. They're a bit square shaped and I don't think the GF noodles are. I always get a bit sick because I have other food allergies but I'll update if I get my usual full blown celiac symptoms. I don't ask and am not super careful here because they're supposed to be better than most.

I love how P.F. Chang’s is working on making a gluten-free option available for Celiacs. I ordered Fried Rice two times in two of their places, and they had a gluten-free option.
