I’ve eaten here several times with no reaction, but I used my Nima to test - egg drop soup - spicy chicken - Mongolian beef - chicken lettuce wraps + sauce - sides of friend rice and it came back with “gluten found”. I let the manager know and the support was 5/5 stars, great customer service, but not safe for celiac.

The manager mentioned a potential move toward a “gluten sensitive” menu soon and celiacs should be aware of this upcoming change.

I absolutely love this place, but tamari sauce does contain small amounts of gluten, and at 20 ppm it can still be legally labeled as gluten-free. Unfortunately, I have celiac so those dishes that contain it make me react in unfortunate ways. Ex: the sauce on the chicken lettuce cups appetizer and the sauce on the beef with broccoli. However, the egg drop soup and Chang’s Spicy Chicken never make me sick. Too bad they discontinued their gf chocolate cake dessert and the other gf mousse that came in a shot glass. If you are not sensitive to tamari, you can enjoy a safe and delicious feast here. ❤

They have a decent and yummy GF menu, and even included GF organic tamari soy sauce with my order.

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.

This place is very expensive but safe gluten-free Chinese food is very hard to find. I ordered takeout through their website off the gluten free menu and put CELIAC GLUTEN ALLERGY in the notes. I brought it home and tested the fried rice and Mongolian beef with my Nima sensor. Both came out gluten free (:

Service here is very friendly, and the food on the gluten-free menu is reliable and in our experience very safe. PF Changs is one of the few chain restaurants where my symptomatic celiac hubs can enjoy a good meal. Alas, I find the food to be a little underwhelming and bland. 5 stars for service and allergy safety. 3.5 stars for the food itself.
