Didn’t get any kind of official gluten free menu, but the waiter said the pad thai and two other noodle dishes could be made gluten free. I went with the pad thai and had no reaction. Not a lot of options, but it’s a small menu and even smaller restaurant. And overall, the food was decent but not really worth a return trip.
This place smelled amazing and the server was so honest, which I appreciated. She said they rinse the wok with water to clean it. It doesn’t get scrubbed, it doesn’t get soap, just a water rinse. She said she would t recommend eating there if contamination is an issue. There is guaranteed cross contamination. We decided to leave so my daughter wouldn’t get sick.
I have Celiac and Star Noodle is a must stop when I’m In Lahaina.. I probably eat there 8-10 times a year for the past 5 years and have never gotten sick.. Granted, the GF menu is limited, but not in taste or quality. If you don’t want a long wait, MAKE RESERVATIONS!
Sept '16: My absolute favorite meal on Maui, and we ate very very well for 8 days. Popular place - get a reservation! People were waiting upwards of 90 - 105 minutes (happily) without! Vietnamese Crepe, Filipino Bacon and Eggs and Singapore Noodles were all AMAZING! Very tasty drinks, as well. I wish I could have tried EVERYTHING on the menu. Staff were knowledgeable about GF/Celiac items. Note, you can also request to have your rice noodles cooked in a fresh pot of water, to reduce risk for cross contamination. Update Dec '17: Returned and again had no issues. Literally tried every GF item on their menu (they do not have a GF menu, but the servers are knowledgeable and can point out all of the options)
We went for lunch. My husband and daughter are both celiac and my daughter is also dairy free. They gave us a couple of options and we ordered the Pad Thai and the Singapore noodles...both very good. They steamed shrimp and brought rice for our daughter. They are very aware here. We didn't have any trouble on Maui at all, in fact!
Went here while in Maui. The server will definitely show you what is gluten free and what is not. I'm not sure the contamination factor back in the kitchen but I have Celiac and was never sick. Reason for the 3 star was of the 4 people at our table, no one really even liked their meals. I would say it's safe to say there are better gluten free restaurants on the island for sure but if your party is set on going here I think you can rest assure it will be gluten free.
Limited GF options and the food was kind of eh. We waited 90 min for a table, and I'm pretty sure I got exposed to gluten. (It was madness/so busy, and I think they cooked my noodles in shared water.) I would not do again. On the plus side, GF tamari was available.
The food was delicious and our waitress was very knowledgeable about what I could and couldn't have. I just didn't give them 5 stars because I got into gluten the day I went there and I don't know if it was from here or one of the other places we ate at. I really hope it wasn't them though because that food was amazing!
The prior review was spot on; be prepared to wait at dinner time. Not sure what it's like during the day. Waitstaff was awesome. Our server was also gf. The Vietnamese crepes were the highlight. They usually have gf tamari, too. Cool vibe and good drinks. Best meal this week.
