UPDATE: I’m updating my review a year or so later. I stopped eating here because of a scary pattern. One time they brought out a non-GF dish for me. I asked if it was GF and they said—unequivocally—yes. I took a bite and then a few seconds later someone ran out of the kitchen to take it away from me. It wasn’t GF after all and they apologized profusely. Unfortunately, it was too late. Needless to say, that carelessness made me sick. Please note that I always make a big deal out of the need for GF and that I’m sensitive to cross-contamination, so their wires clearly got crossed in the kitchen. I thought that would be an isolated incident, but I was mistaken. The next time I went, I got sick again. That time it seemed to be cross-contamination. I didn’t give it any more chances than that. I've been here several times and it's always good. They can accommodate multiple dishes with their gluten free soy sauce. I'm assuming they do well preventing cross-contamination because I've haven't felt ill after any of my visits. I usually order the chicken teriyaki. Also, the beef chow fun is great.
Can I give more than 5 stars? They were fantastic! Nothing is marked on the menu but they are happy to accommodate. Server was very knowledgeable: I asked for the chef special Singapore Noodles and she said I needed to sub chicken for pork. I didn’t get sick. It was also delicious! Mom said it was the best Shrimp Lo Mein she’s had.
I used to go here before eliminating gluten and was a regular pretty much since they opened. I go at least twice a week now for lunch, and almost always get the GF version of teriyaki chicken (on lunch menu), but I'm sure there are other options. They usually give me a fortune cookie which is not GF obviously, but I think they come in prepackaged "to go" packets that they put in every bag. I don't get gastrointestinal issues with gluten (I am GF for autoimmune disease symptoms) but haven't had an issue eating here regularly.
I was really impressed with Red Pepper! I ordered and asked about gluten free options, she asked what I had in mind and she said it wasn't as good gf and recommended another item. When I arrived to pick up my food she gave me a menu circled with options that were gf or could be made gluten free. She said they have 3 cooks who all take it very seriously. I had even ordered a side and she told me when I picked up my food they went ahead and made it gluten free since I didn't specify - just in case. The food and service were great and I'll definitely go back!
