Not celiac friendly

I went out of my way to go to this restaurant because I saw reviews on Find Me Gluten Free that said that the orange chicken was safe (orange chicken is something I loved in my pre-celiac days but haven't had in over 10 years). Unfortunately, upon getting to restaurant, I was told that that wasn't the case; the orange chicken is cooked in the same fryer with gluten-containing items, so it's cross-contaminated. I asked if there was any way for it to be made gluten free and was told no. I'm giving two stars because they did have some soup and some spring rolls that were 100% gluten free, but I wanted to leave a review so my fellow celiacs don't go there thinking they can have orange chicken like I did. Soup and so-so spring rolls aren't really enough for me to go back, unfortunately. Thankfully, the folks working there were helpful in knowing what I could had couldn't have.
