The food is good but it takes so much time and effort to communicate with the waiters/chef. Many don’t understand what you need and have to refer you to someone else.

Ordered all of these item from designated GF menu: egg drop soup, spicy chicken, beef magnolia, and the famous chicken wraps w/ lettuce. ALL came back as GLUTEN found when tested separate in the Nima sensor. I LOVE PF Changs and so I just really really wanted it to be GF! Which is why I tested all items. Of course restuarants cannot ensure 100% GF but, please remember, just because you do not get sick - doesn't make it gluten free. :( bummed about this one.

Great gluten free menu. They make everything separately and even brought out gluten-free soy sauce without us asking. Waiter very knowledgeable - they have clearly trained their staff.

Decent GF menu. In addition to about a dozen other options, they can do GF lettuce wraps and Mongolian Beef, which is what we typically order. GF good is served on plates that are different from gluten containing options. We've eaten here many times with our two celiac daughters.

Spoke with the manager, Ken, ahead of my visit to go over my dietary restrictions. Tasty options and the gf food comes out on a different plate. Ken even came by a couple times to make sure everything was ok- even on a busy Saturday night. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful gluten-free friendly place to eat! Lots of options. They really take precautions with your meals. Gluten-free meals come out on a different shaped plate than all the others.

Went there on Easter, group of 5 of us, and they were great! My son was diagnosed with Celiac in November, and we have had issues at other restaurants with "Gluten-Free" menus. No problem here! I was very nervous, but the waiter and the kitchen manager both reassured me it would be fine. My son ate the Lettuce Wraps and the Chicken with Broccoli, loved them both! He also tried my Mongolian Beef. All of this off the GF menu. He did great...no reaction! Way to go, PF Changs! Thank you! ;)

Delicious. They have GF soy sauce that they use and bring to the table for you, so their GF menu is pretty extensive. I usually get fried rice. Don's miss the lettuce wraps - they are amazing.

First experience was a Grubhub delivery order. The ordering process was very gluten-aware which is very rare for Grubhub. The food arrived wrapped up tight and marked gluten free. It seems very likely that they take "gluten-free" very seriously. The eating was good, tasty and ample. Of note: The food is pricey.

Second visit was sit down. Also a great experience. 'very well done.

Don't eat here. Save yourself. Run far away. Don't make the same mistake I did. It's not safe. No matter how much they try to reassure you. It's a trap. I'm so sick from cross contamination. I feel like I'm going to die

Came here with my kids last week and had a great experience. I am highly reactive and had no reaction. I ordered Chang’s spicy chicken and white rice. I also asked for gluten free soy sauce which came out in a ramekin. I was hoping for packets of sauce but the GF soy sauce tasted as salty as I remember so I gave it a shot. No reaction. My kids and I ate out 4 dinners in a row and this was their favorite by far.
