Great service. Have ordered take out twice and myself and my son are gluten free for celiacs and they have a great battered chicken in a dedicated fryer. They seem knowledgeable and we did not get sick.

My wife and I have been coming here for years. My wife has been gluten free since 2014 and when we found this restaurant it Quickly became her favorite. Most of their menu can be gluten free as they make everything in house. They also carry gluten free soy sauce. You just have to ask for it. The owner is always on the floor running orders and checking in on patrons. Since weve been coming here she has never had a reaction.

My first visit the staff seemed a bit irritated I was mentioning gluten allergy. I ended up not having a reaction. The second visit they still seemed to know about gluten allergies. I did end up getting sick however

I have eaten here a few times and have been pleasantly surprised. I haven’t gotten sick eating here at all. They can make almost anything on the menu gluten free except potstickers and a few other items. The staff are friendly when you go in

This is my favorite gluten free place to eat. I was so sad when I had to stop eating panda express but this is honestly a very good alternative. The staff is very knowledgeable and can make most of the dishes gluten free. It is celiac friendly and I have not gotten sick there before. The food is so yummy and even lightly breaded with cornstarch so it is crispy. They also usually have tamari/gf soy sauce if you ask. 10/10 recommend

An absolute rarity! This place is extremely knowledgeable and so far has been very safe for me. The best part....I couldnt even tell you the food is GF. My wife couldnt taste the difference between regular entree and my GF. They have their own flour mix/sauces and what not they use to fry with. I am absolutely impressed and thrilled to be able chinese food again!

This place can be busy so take that in mind when going during peak hours. But it's worth the wait!

I had a delicious honey almond chicken. It was even lightly breaded AND gluten free.

While things were not marked on the menu pretty much every entree could be made gluten free. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. I felt safe and didn’t get sick!

Gluten Sensitive. I eat here once per month. Specify gluten free. They will even tell you if there is a menu item that is not safe. This restaurant is a family favorite and it’s nice to know that I can eat some yummy Chinese. Favorites- sesame beef, honey almond chicken and mandarin chicken.

Be wary!! My husband and I chose to order take out tonight from this restaurant based on the reviews given here. When placing my order we were very clear that I am a celiac and needed gluten free meals otherwise I would get very ill. The lady who took our order assured me my food would be gluten free. When we got back home I tested my meal (Mongolian Beef and Pork and Seeds) with my NIMA sensor and BOTH the Mongolian Beef and the pork from the pork and seeds tested positive for Gluten. To be sure that my sensor wasn’t having issues I tested the plain white rice and it was gluten free. My husband ordered the combo with Mongolian Beef and his was not supposed to be gluten free but it looked exactly like my Mongolian Beef. When we asked the woman who took our order about why my meal had gluten she just kept repeating “the combo is not gluten free but the entree of Mongolian Beef is”. Then why did they look identical?? I’m assuming they were from the same batch. Either way we won’t be back and now I’m out $30.

Celiac friendly?

Oh man this place is awesome. If you're gluten free and miss good Chinese food this place is amazing. 90% of the menu can be made gluten free. (Wontons and potstickers are about the only thing they can't make gluten free) if nobody told me the food was gluten free I wouldn't have known it's that good. Ruby red pork is amazing and their honey almond shrimp/chicken is bomb.
