A restaurant that uses a common fryer but does not disclose that on their “gluten-free” menu or train their staff on gluten-free options is not celiac safe. This is unethical and unsafe. The waiter genuinely did not understand what gluten is, and didn’t seem interested in being helpful....at all. I’m very unimpressed by this restaurant, and will stick with Joy Luck instead.
We ate here the other night and it was great! They have a separate gluten free menu. I ordered the honey Walnut shrimp and it was delicious. The only down side is the menu listed the egg flower soup as GF but when I ordered it the waiter said it wasn't. I guess it's good that he knew that, but it worries me that it was on the menu.
I would have given more stars except for the following: I don't have Celiac, so it's not a concern to me. However, my wife is ultra-sensitive to gluten. We went here because they have a gluten-free menu and we've heard good things about it. I had the orange chicken at it was very good. It wasn't the best Chinese I've eaten, (think San Francisco and Portland) but still very good. My wife ordered orange chicken and steamed rice from the gluten free menu. She said it tasted very good as well, but she sure paid for it. 5 days later and she's in one of the worst brain fogs I've ever seen, and she's in serious pain (I've never experienced it, but those with Celiac will certainly know what I'm talking about). This is the only place she could have been exposed. I don't want to bag on the restaurant, because the food was good and the service was pretty good too. However, If you are sensitive to gluten, I would avoid it.
