Unfortunately just found out that all proteins (including egg) are not GF. This is marked on the menu when selecting sides, but NOT when adding these items to the order. Major oversight.

Additionally, the sides clearly have gluten containing ingredients (imitation crab, soy sauce, etc) but are not marked as containing gluten. They need to update their menu.

Other than that the food is good and worth getting if you’re gluten free. A little pricey. Be careful and you should be okay.

They can make celiac-safe noodles with broth and topping. However, *all* of their proteins arrive at the shop already marinated in regular soy sauce, so they cannot put any meat, tofu, or egg in your ramen. It is a real bummer that they can't even boil you a celiac-safe egg.

Had the old skool bowl with GF ramen. It’s a bit pricey for GF option but worth it. Did not get sick afterward!

Lab tested Gluten free ramen, with a dedicated space/equipment. Their servers are very knowledgeable and use special bowls to mark GF food

The Host/Manager was super knowledgeable and explained that all the ramens but one could be made GF. Not just noodle replacement but they adjust broth and other ingredients too to ensure GF. I had the chicken ramen so far but will go back. Pretty good as far as GF ramen goes.

Only downside is the insane price. 5$ extra for GF and with tax and tip you’ll be paying 25$ for ramen

Very good. Pricey, but $20 ramen is better than no ramen. Very popular, be prepared to wait.

Not sure if it’s a dedicated celiac facility but they are one of the only ramen places in the area that I know of that has gluten free ramen (and it’s AMAZING). However, expect a long line!!

Oh my God. The GF chicken ramen was stupendous. But at 20 bucks a pop it’s a good thing I live in the SF Valley. Still a wonderful treat and something I didn’t think I could enjoy again being GF. Highly recommended.

Gluten free & delicious. But ‘gluten free’ is $6 extra. Which brings the price of a bowl of ramen to around $20.

Their Gluten Free ramen is lab tested and is 100% gluten free. They actually had it tested to make sure it was safe specifically for people with Celiac Disease. It's my go to gluten free place in LA. It's delicious!

They used to be great. Now, they've basically stopped doing gluten free. You can theoretically get gluten free noodles, but they've rephrased their menu descriptions, and it seems like the broths all still contain gluten regardless of noodle choice. Very sad, given that they once had fully gluten free options and dedicated prep space.

Don’t eat the protein or egg it has gluten it in. It’s messed up because I’ve come here for years and always got sick but kept coming back cause it is extremely good and now they decide to tell you the meats are marinated in soy sauce!

Did you know that they marinate every single protein and that includes eggs in soy sauce. The only way you could truly eat gluten free at this establishment is if you only get noodles please DO NOT GO here if you want anything other than just noodles in your meal.

Sadly we ate here last night, and had gluten attacks all night. It stinks because the food is yummy, but way too many gluten land mines to avoid when building your meal.

Super easy ordering all on iPads, just click the GF option at the end. Celiac and didn't get sick. Only downfall is GF noodles is an additional $6, wish I could have afforded more! -2021 update- NO proteins are GF except tofu and you still need to pay extra for half as much food. No dice.
