I was excited to try the pad thai but the company changed the recipe and it’s no longer gluten free. I got the grilled bourbon chicken. It was ok. Just chicken and rice.

If you have celiac let them know. The staff is knowledgeable about gluten free and will offer you to look at the allergen list. When staff members don't know something about gluten free options they will check. They have been expanding they're gluten free options. Additional deals in the pick up sticks app. I love this place! My favorite things are the pad Thai, sweet & sour tofu, and Thai tofu curry. If you want fried rice you have to see if they're willing to make it for you without soy sauce. Some locations will and some won't if it's premade.

dedicated GF menu. Staff is knowledgeable about cross contamination. Food was good. Updated 1/21/17. I attempted to eat at this restaurant with my family in December the staff said they were unable to clean the pans prior to cooking our meal and not to worry the gluten would burn off from the last thing they cooked. We left and contacted corporate who assured us they talked to the staff and we should try again. We attempted to eat here again today the staff seemed put out by us asking to use clean pans and utensils and suggested it was not worth it to risk our health 5 times. It was apparent they didn't want to have to do the extra work needed to accommodates us.

Three GF items on the menu (plus steamed rice), but staff on the day weren’t really knowledgeable about the dishes, and whether there could be cross-contamination. No adverse reactions today though.

You gotta thoroughly explain it to them. Look the sever in the eye and tell them because otherwise they are very lax about it.

First of all, the food tasted good (bourbon chicken specially) and I do not blame the resturaunt itself for the problems I had. However, the employee serving me was lazy at my expense. I started out by asking if there were any gluten-free options, as I do at any restaurant. Without skipping a beat, he said no. I responded something along the lines of, "Oh, my bad. I had read online that there were." In response to this, he turned his head and looked at the allergen sheet on the wall RIGHT NEXT TO HIM. Upon actually reading the sheet, he found that there were, in fact, three options (bourbon chicken, white rice, and a vegetable something). I asked for those three gluten-free things. Now here was the second problem. He misread the allergen sheet. Instead of giving me the gluten-free vegetables, he gave me the teriyaki vegetables, which do contain gluten.

The moral of the story is that this is a good restaurant, but you should take the employees' word with a grain of salt.

Gluten free options are white rice, grilled chicken, and stir fried vegetables. I’m not a huge fan of stir fried vegetables so I had a very plain meal, lol. They advertise gluten free, so I’m not sure why it would be that hard to offer gluten free fried rice.
