Best Chinese food I've ever had! The food is wonderful and never disappoints. They have a wide range of gluten free options that I have not been able to eat in years! I have a Nima gluten free sensor I use to double check my food for gluten and I'm happy to say everything I had was 100% gluten free.

My favorites are the szechuan chicken, General Tso chickens, and chicken and broccoli.

The service is always super friendly and very accommodating!

Incredible restaurant so excited to finally get gluten free Chinese food that is safe from cross contamination. Let them know all of your allergies in advance when you talk to them. The food is phenomenal the taste is beyond delicious. All of the staff and chefs know exactly what food allergies are especially celiac. They are very careful with cross contamination and take your time when they are taking your order to make sure everything is correct. Almost anything on the menu can be made gluten free and cross contamination free.

The food wasn't bad but it is very oily. We ordered the Pork Fried Rice and Chow Fun. Both entrees were swimming in oil. Not kidding, I tipped the takeout container a little on its side and saw a massive amount of oil.

Love, love, love TS MA!!! Their food is so fresh and my personal favorites are the veggie Mei Fun and the fried tofu with broccoli in brown sauce. Missed having Chinese food ever since being GF and they make it taste exactly the same!

The food was great! My Chinese mom who never asks to go back to a restaurant, told me she wants me to bring her back to T S Ma's! The menu is clearly marked with GF icons and I was pleasantly surprised to see how many items I could order because they have GF sauces or adapt the dish. Everyone was really nice and most importantly, I didn't have any GI issues after eating there. Random: the bathroom is really clean and nice; I saw them go in to sweep after every few customers.

I’m celiac and have eaten here many times and have never had any problems. As long as you’re clear about your needs, the staff takes very good care to make the food gluten free. And the food is amazing— definitely my favorite place to eat in Montclair!

Awesome selection of gluten free options! Ordered delivery and the staff member who took my order over the phone was extremely helpful with what items are available to be made gluten free and what items are normally gluten free. He carefully double checked my order to make sure the correct items were gluten free. Non gf brother who regularly enjoys non gf Chinese food raved about how delicious the food was and how everything wasn’t as heavy and greasy as the Chinese he normally orders.

I thought I’d have to give up Chinese cuisine when I had to go gluten-free. Not so!! The gluten free dishes we had were comparable to the best traditional Chinese restaurants. Give yourself a treat and visit TS Ma....super friendly and helpful staff.

I got really sick after eating here and tested my food for gluten with my Nima sensor the next morning and everything came back cross contaminated (low gluten level). The owner assured me it was prepared separately and was guaranteed to be GF for celiacs prior to ordering, however, after telling them about my experience they changed their story to say they use a separate wok but everything else is shared. Since then, they took my suggestion to specify on the menu they offer GF options but it's in a shared space so they can't guarantee it's free from cross contamination which I was happy with. Hopefully it prevents someone else getting sick the way I did. food tasted great but cross contaminated.

Finally, a Chinese restaurant with lots of gluten-free options clearly marked on the menu! I had some difficulty understanding my server, but she reached out to another employee and I made my gluten-free needs known. I really didn't believe that I wouldn't get sick, but I did not!The food was delicious! We will be back!

It's great that they clearly identify an assortment of gluten free options on their menu. That makes it convenient. Hubby and I have enjoyed a lot of great Chinese food over the years. The food here is good.....not Great. I will eat here again....just not very impressed. Perhaps I will be impressed when I try more items on the menu. Updating my review to 4 stars from 3 to remind myself that this place has done well on subsequent visits. Great option for us for when we don't want to make the trek to Englishtown for Chinese food.

this is one of the best Chinese food restaurants I've ever been to. they are very good with their gluten free food. I always choose a non gluten free soup to give to my co-worker and every time they always call to let me know it's not gf just to make sure I know!

I'm torn. We've eaten here and gotten take out and it's generally fine, but this last order definitely had something gluten (I don't know what) because I'm having a severe (asthmatic) reaction.

I'll probably order from them again, but it might be awhile.

They gave us non gluten free food two times. My son caught that the color was off on our dish. Turns out it wasn't gluten free. They label the containers gluten free and this wasn't labeled. Another time we didn't catch it and I was ill for 3 days. Since there aren't many Chinese gf places, I've gone back- no more issues since.

UPDATE: just found a (wheat) lo mein noodle in our GF take out. Called the restaurant. They said sorry, but didn't seem to take it that seriously. Also previously found meat in our veggie dish, so clearly they aren't washing pans/utensils between dishes. Won't go back.

Consistently good & safe. Tofu w/veggies in garlic & ginger is really excellent. Staff is friendly & helpful.

The reviews were all really good - and the food tasted great but I found a big noodle in the middle of my dish 😖 I took a gluten ease immediately. I'm not sure how they prepare their "gluten free dishes" but I won't be visiting again.

Ate at this cute little restaurant last night. Made a 7 pm reservation and was seated immediately. Our granddaughter was with us and had been craving Chinese food but has celiac so it had to be gluten free. This menu was awesome with a good assortment of gluten free choices. The food was excellent. Sesame chicken, beginning fried rice, tofu and dumplings were all good.

It's very unusual to find gluten free Chinese food.

We had a great time and the owner was very attentive to our requests. Will definitly return

Plenty of GF choices, except for appetizers. Still well worth it, probably 75% of the menu can be GF. Fresh tasting, not overly salty with MSG. should probably make a reservation as it's not too big and fills up quickly. BYOB

It was so nice to have gluten free Chinese finally! They had a good selection but accidentally served regular as gluten free. Thankfully I realized this before eating any and they quickly remedied.

So nice to find a healthy Chinese restaurant that has a good selection of gluten-free items. Veggies are fresh, not canned. Restaurant uses gluten-free soy sauce upon request for their fairly extensive GF items. Best of all, it actual tastes good!
