We shared an appetizer of chicken lettuce wraps…always been served with 1/2 rounds of lettuce ‘cups’. Here was served with small pcs of lettuce that could not hold chicken or sauce. I had a GF chicken dish, my mate (not GF) got GF Mongolian Beef; not as good as regular he said. Serv was great. I was specific,being Celiac. Asked ?’s. Staff was receptive but very few (#4)☹ gf items. They used to have a lot of choices + the chocolate bombe w/raspberry sauce dessert was delish!

I am quite sensitive to gluten and they have always done a great job! I’ve never been sick here and the gluten free options are numerous. One of the owners has a CD child so he fully gets it. He recommended not eating sushi due to the Sushi vinegar but they have other great options!

If you tell them you are Celiac they are very accommodating and careful with cross contamination. The mongolian beef, lettuce wraps and fried rice are amazing!

I give them one star only because I have to, I ate there a little over a month ago, I told the waitress I was celiac and ordered off the gluten free menu. I got the fried rice with my meal and did not notice it was not in a gluten free dish, I got very sick, later I called the manager to let him know what happened. He seem very nice and assured me he would get with his staff and he offered to send me a gift card so I would his place another chance. I gave him my address and have yet to receive a thing

Finally a P. F. Chang’s in Waco! I’ve got many times in other cities and have never had issues. They use plates with their logo to indicate that the food is GF and the staff have been very helpful.

Sad to say I really, truly cannot recommend! Multiple times now they’ve put the gluten free sticker on my order and multiple times now there has still been stray noodles in the dish! They may understand in principle how to cook gluten free food, but they truly do not understand how to take cross contact precautions. Throwing up tonight was the last straw. Eat at your own risk, it’s just not reliable or consistent enough with cross contact precautions for people with celiac/severe allergies.

I have celiac (and am very sensitive) and have eaten here safely for years. They have a separate food prep station and use all different woks and utensils. I always call my order in and specify that I have celiac/severe gluten allergy and if they could mark it for that. They are always very accommodating and very knowledgeable.

GF Mongolian beef, Chang’s spicy chicken, and pork fried rice are my faves.

Son is celiac. For the most staff had no clue, manager came out with special gf menu. Needless to say, the food was not gf and caused much discomfort. Stay away if gf is essential like us.

Ordered the gluten free chicken and shrimp pad Thai via Uber eats. The food came labeled gluten free, as well as with some packets of gluten free soy sauce. Didn’t get sick and was a great meal!
