They have a gluten free menu on request however when asked, they use the same wok for everything so i suspect a lot of cross contamination. I asked if anything gluten free that was not cooked in the wok and they had one menu item (steamed flounder) that i had no issues with.

TLDR: expect few to no options and lack of clarity on safety

It was good. They have a gf menu and the staff was super friendly and knowledgeable, but the food itself I would say was just better than ok.

I thought it was just a coincidence that I got sick when I ate there, then I realized it was happening every time I ordered from them. I get the gluten free beef fried rice, they must use the same wok or something because I get sick every time.

The "gluten free" menu items differ from one employee to the next. If they want to accommodate GF eaters they should make a menu and educate their staff.

Excellent beef with Chinese broccoli. They even have rice paper shrimp dumplings! This place is awesome, knowledgeable, and ultra friendly.

Called in advance to see what sort of gluten free options they had, and they told me that almost anything on the menu could be made gluten free. Arrived, asked again to confirm, and was given a list of only ~5 things. They're menu is pretty large, so that's definitely not "almost anything." If they aren't even sure what it means, then I'm not confident I can trust them not to cross contaminate. I ordered the kung pao chicken and it was flavorless. Will not be back!
