I’ve never had a problem here! A moderately sized GF menu and GF food comes out with a special plate if dining in and with a big orange sticker if taking out. They’re also doing take-out during COVID-19, so it’s a nice option to have.

There ARE gluten free options for celiac and gluten sensitive but their food has changed drastically over time. They try to fool you with atmosphere and the "fancy" custom sauce but their food is seriously lacking. It tastes like it appeals to people who don't want to actually eat Asian inspired dishes but bland slop par for the course considering the stereotypical American fare. The Pad Thai is a joke. Buddha's Feast is absolutely depressing. My SO got the hot and sour soup and hated it. Way too expensive for the quality and quantity of food you get. This is not a complaint about the cooks themselves but the recipes, which are not decided by the location's staff but the company itself. It's a damn shame.

A relaxing and tasty meal! They have a separate gf menu with a good selection, including an appetizer, a soup, sides, and a nice variety of entree options. Make sure if you have a gluten sensitivity that you let your server know, and that you order specifically off the gf menu. Our server was very nice about going back to the kitchen to answer any questions I had. They have separate pans and utensils for preparing gf food, as well as gf sauces. I ordered the egg drop soup (theirs is naturally gf with no modifications), and the gf ginger chicken and broccoli with white rice. The egg drop soup was very hearty and savory. The ginger chicken and broccoli was my go-to before I got diagnosed, and I was happy to find that the gf version tasted pretty much identical! It came out on a plate that had a very prominent PF Chang's logo on it, which marks it as a gf meal (so make sure your entree comes out on one of these). Also tried their homemade ginger beer, which was a zesty surprise! Other things to keep in mind, the soy sauce on the table isn't gf, but they can get you gf soy sauce if you ask for it. Felt great afterwards, would definitely recommend!

I had egg drop soup and chicken lettuce wraps, both gluten free. Both were delicious. They serve the gluten free entrees on special plates so everyone in the kitchen is (or should be at least) aware the entree is gluten free. There is a slight up-charge for gluten free but to me it's worth it. There was a happy hour special from 4-6 p.m. and the chicken lettuce wraps were $3.50 off.

I love P.F. Chang's BEFORE I went gluten-free and AFTER I became gluten-free. One of my friends and I went to P.F.Chang's this past weekend and my experience was wonderful. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease over a year ago which has made dining out challenging. I was well taken care of by Salam (server), Christine (bartender) and the manager. When I spoke to Salam about my dining needs, she took it seriously and elevated it to the manager. The manager came and spoke with me and was very kind. I was able to order for the gluten-free menu and all the food was great. Additionally, I wanted to engage in the spirits and was able to do so. The bartender, Christine was knowledgeable about what drinks did or did not have gluten. She made two different drinks for me and they were great!!!! I cannot say how happy I was about my dining experience. I did not get sick at all while I was there or 24 hours later. This is why they got 5 stars from me.

We were excited about the GF menu but wish the server would have known that the GF version if the Buddah's Feast was not like their regular version which is stir fried in a sauce with tofu. Instead I was served a plate of steamed vegetables. If the regular sauce is not GF, why not stir fry it in the lettuce wrap sauce (they were yummy) or the beef a la Sichuan sauce? Clearly I ordered the wrong thing. Lesson learned...ask questions when ordering off the GF menu.

I am so happy that they added some of the deleted menu items back. It makes the gf menu more complete. Good understanding of cross contamination & different plates for gf dishes. I also like that the gf menu is part of the regular menu so you aren't asking for a different menu or holding something different that everyone else in your party (and can see the prices).

I have to admit, this could be my most favorite dining experience since I've become gluten free. They offer shrimp and chicken proteins, in many of their entrees. they usually have gluten free beer. and the best part I almost always have leftovers

By far the MOST accomodating restaurant I've been to. 1. They have GF menu with various options. 2. If two people at the same table orders the same dish (GF and non-GF), they have plates especially designated for GF food so there's no mix-up from the kitchen to your table. GF plates has a black lined circle around the plate with "PF Chang" imprint on it. All other plates are bland white. 3. Best of all, they even offer GF dessert! A rich chocolate dome flourless cake. Make room for it!! 4. They have GF stickers that they put on take out containers for GF food that you take home. At most restaurants they offer GF dishes but when it's dessert time, they tell you "Sorry we dont have anything for you". Usually not a problem for me, but tell that to a kid (my son) is a different story.

I ordered all Gluten free for my wife on Mother’s Day and unfortunately with Celiac she got so sick. It’s now 1 week later and she still feels sick. I reached out to the Fresno store and got no response from them. Very disappointed. We go to the Monterey store on a monthly basis and my wife has had no issues at all. Fresno sucks. This is the second bad experience with this store. Never again.

Gave me a severe celiac reaction. Frustrating for two reasons because the gluten free option costs more and of course the week-long fun that is feeling like death. Their solution was to give me a gift card. Anyone want a gift card?

Ordered out during quarantine. GF Chang’s chicken and GF pad Thai are specified on GF menu and marked with stickers, but we tested with Nima Sensor and both came back with Gluten Found. Maybe quality control was off given limited staff during Covid lockdown, not sure. But a bit unsettling. I think we have ordered and tested in past and tests came back ok, but I don’t remember exactly.

I hope our experience is not normal, and I understand things are very different for all restaurants right now, but unfortunately the gluten free food we ordered was not gluten free. My son has been sick all day after our delivery last night. We'll have to see if he wants to give it another shot when the restaurants reopen for in person dining.

I told the waiter I was GF with celiac and ordered a GF option, but the order that was brought to me was not GF. I ate a few bites before realizing that my plate was the same as everybody else’s. The waiter hadn’t even coded my order correctly on the ticket. He apologized saying he thought there wasn’t a difference in preparation between the regular and GF spicy chicken. Do not take your chances at this restaurant if you have celiac. It made me sick.

Orders GF Mongolian Beef and Chicken Fried Rice. Both tested on Nima sensor as safe! Mongolian Beef was really tasty but the chicken fried rice didn’t taste like much as it lacked seasoning and enough tamari to add flavor. Heard the server at a table next door saying that they don’t put the edamame on the menu as GF because it comes pre-packaged and they can’t guarantee there wasn’t cross-contamination before they handle it. Their servers seemed well training on GF protocol and I liked how they use different plates to distinguish Went again and Nima teared GF Beef with Broccoli and think that was really good too

My meal was fine, but others in my group were less impressed with theirs. Unfortunately, we had 4 sets of dirty cutlery at our table, which is a real turnoff. We had 2 Celiacs in our group, so we went because of the gluten-free menu. But it was only after we all started eating that we learned they no longer have gluten-free desserts. We had 3 birthdays in our group, and 2 of them are Celiac... And one of the Celiacs is a kid. What a HUGE disappointment. Why bother having a GF menu if you can't accommodate through all the courses.

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times since being gluten free. They have a gluten free menu and prepare their gluten free items in a separate area of their kitchen.

This is the only decent place inside security to get a meal, other than salad if you need gf. Service great, quick, and staff very knowable. They even printed a "custom" menu for my husband who needs both gf and df. They also took special care with our daughter's nut and sesame allergies. The only reason they aren't getting 5 stars is that they did not have gf soy/tamari which made my selection of Budah's Delight (all veggies) steamed, and bland. However, supplementing with some of my husband's sauce from his entree helped.

Ate here for the first time after being diagnosed with Celiac disease. I’m happy to say I found somewhere safe to eat as I am super sensitive. I sat at the bar, asked for a GF menu, and the bartender was super friendly and knowledgeable. She explained that the kitchen prepares GF dishes in a separate area and all items on the GF menu are guaranteed to be safe. I ate the spicy chicken with brown rice and broccoli off the GF menu and had zero issues. Thank you PF Chang’s, I will be back ❤️

Three “celiacs” ate without consequences. Food was good. Our waiter, Vincent, was attentive and carefully listened to the food order. Celiac orders arrived on specially designed plates to assure that they didn’t contain gluten. However, the hostess and seating was disorganized and chaotic. We called ahead, made reservations, and still waited over an hour in a cramped waiting area. And, there were several available tables that were not cleaned.
