This is an amazing gem to find, gluten free Chinese food is tough to locate! The food is somewhat hit or miss but their service is fantastic. We got a chance to try their frozen dishes out when they hosted a pop up in Guelph.

BBQ fried rice was excellent. Shrimp dumplings were delicious. Steamed buns weren’t good. The bread was alright but the fillings were not satisfactory: chicken buns barely had any filling and it’s noticeable because it’s shredded chicken. The lemon chicken was delicious but the lemon sauce was super odd. Food is pretty breading-heavy so they look MASSIVE but is mostly bread.

We’d definitely would love to try their hot buffet table one day!

I love this restaurant so much. They make old-school Canadian Chinese food. If you miss Mandarin or Manchu Wok, you will love The Bean Sprout.

They do weekend buffets, made-to-order fresh food the rest of the week, and have an extensive frozen selection as well.

In 2019 they changed to be 100% gluten free, so you can feel safe and confident eating there.

I was so missing Chinese food after my diagnosis. This restaurant saved the day! Gluten Free/allergen friendly buffet! Also, they do take out AND frozen packed dishes. I live a really long way away & it is worth stocking up for when I get my next craving for delicious food!

My husband and I ate here while I was in Toronto for work. I couldn’t tell from the other reviews whether they had safe gluten-free options all the time or just on the dedicated gluten-free buffet weekends. I called and the owner said they always have gluten free options, but to mention my allergy/intolerance when I got there. He was very good about explaining what was safe to eat. The food was delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed it. My non-celiac husband couldn’t even tell the food was gluten-free. Very reasonably priced, and lots of options for vegetarians. The onion rings were SO good, I haven’t been able to eat those in years. The owner was helpful, gracious and very accommodating. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and it was clear he wanted me to have a good experience. I’m very sensitive to cross contamination and didn’t get sick after eating here. If I’m ever in the area again I will definitely go back!

I've been missing going out for Chinese food, so it was exciting to discover this place! The owners were very kind and knowledgable - their son has multiple allergies, which led to the creation of the restaurant. Reading about their story made me tear up. It really spoke upon how much of a struggle food restrictions can be.

The chicken rice noodles were super tasty and had the same flavours I grew up knowing - except GF, MSGF, and a bit lighter on the oil. I brought home some frozen dumplings and sticky rice, which were also healthy and delicious. Both my body and soul felt good after eating their food :) I'm excited to work through some other menu items whenever I'm in town.

An unassuming place when you walk by, but they have delicious GF Chinese food! They have a GF buffet twice a month and a huge freezer filled with GF takeout. You can also call and order food for takeout or cater through them. We got to talking with the owners who said their son has celiac and other severe allergies, which spawned the creation of the restaurant. Very sweet and welcoming people. Be sure to try the onion rings, they’re fresh out of the fryer and delicious!

Mark and his family are incredible owners. They know what Celiac is all about and dedicate a few weekends/month to gluten free! Their frozen food is available everyday and is easy to prepare and enjoy at home. I wish I could give more stars! They deserve it.

The owner is my favourite part! Her son is has allergies to nuts soy gluten etc and that’s why she’s so good at what she does and soooo knowledgeable. The chow mein and the pork buns!!! The egg rolls!! The chicken balls.. best place ever. U pay for the safety, friendly interactions, and delicious food so it’s a lil pricier than what you would expect at a Chinese take out/buffet place but it’s allll worth it. Trust me on this one. 10/10 would recommend to even people who don’t eat gluten free.

This place is absolutely amazing. A rare if not one-of-a-kind gem. The fryers are changed and scrubbed down for gluten-free weekend once monthly. They take this very very seriously and understand cross contamination risks. The food is delicious — not a substitute for Chinese food but the real deal and every bit as good as a top-rated Chinese restaurant.

The most celiac friendly restaurant around. The second Sunday of the month you can dine in for an all you can eat buffet that is hands down the best Chinese food I've ever had. The owners are wonderful and have a son with celiacs, so they really get it. Prior to the monthly buffet, they spend hours cleaning everything from top to bottom to ensure it is safe for those with celiacs. They also have a freezer with gluten free options, but the options are a bit limited. I believe you can order gf throughout the month, but I've never done it. The buffet is something I wait for all month!!!!

This is a wonderful little place owned by a lovely couple. They do a gluten-free Chinese buffet of about 20 items once a month. The food is quality stuff - the chicken balls are huge. They also have a freezer with take home items, including authentic gluten-free dumplings! Such a treat for when I'm craving home made Chinese food. 😊

Drove in from north of the city to try this raved about Chinese buffet. What a little gem! They welcomed us with kindness and compassion and catered to my celiac and nut allergy needs. It was so nice not to have to worry about what I was eating. I felt safe, understood and connected with the family like they were my own. Highly recommend this establishment, not only for the food, but for the genuine feeling of “normalcy” in eating out that was lost the second the celiac diagnosis occurred. Thank you!
