Every time I’ve been, it’s been a great experience. Most of the menu is gluten free and a chef came out to talks to me to let me know they have separate fryers and woks for gluten free meals. The menu is not marked but everyone I speak to there seems very knowledgeable about gluten (what we can’t have) and have always been super helpful! I have never felt sick from eating here! Definitely recommend!

I loved it here cute little place and the cook was knowledgeable about celiac which is rare. He was also very nice. To be able to have a egg roll was a huge plus.

Great GF food but even better service! The gentleman working the front(also the owner) was so kind and went above and beyond with his service. We felt like we were truly appreciated for supporting his business. Oh, and be sure to get the GF egg roll!!

Everything is delicious and the owner is incredibly nice and knowledgeable. Thai fries and egg roll are GF favorites! Orange chicken and drunken noodles are excellent! Eat here regularly and have never had an issue even when ordering online.

Great place, super sweet guys! Nearly everything on their menu is gluten free. The kung pao beef was tasty, just a bit too salty (for me), but they quickly remade a new meal for me (the sweet and sour chicken was awesome)! My boyfriend had the drunken noodles and we both got the gluten free egg rolls, all great and highly recommend!

I have not eaten Asian food in a brown sauce out in over four years. This was the best Asian food I have eaten ever. My gluten enabled son agreed. What a find!

We ate at The Wok last week when our travels took us through Lexington. It's kind of a hole-in-the-wall kind of place (which is NOT a knock on it) where you order at the counter...and it's easy to drive past (we missed it the first time, it's just off the main road). When we got there, my husband said to me, "You know the food is going to be good when the furnace is in the bathroom!" And he was right! I had fried gluten free egg rolls for the first time since my celiac diagnosis almost 14 years ago. I also had beef fried rice, which had incredibly tender beef. There were 10 other things that I wanted to try! We will be back!

We’ve given them so many tries to support local, but the food is just too inconsistent. Several times, the food was too salty to eat. Several times, the noodles were overcooked into a block of starchy mess. Several times, the food was too spicy (as if they used extra), even though we asked for them to go easy on the spices. They have even left a dinner off of our order after we waited an hour for delivery. We also tried the GF egg rolls and they were so greasy we could not eat them. When the food is prepared well, it’s good. But you never know if it’s going to be a well-prepared meal or not.

First Chinese food I’ve had in a long time!! They have a mostly GF menu and I was confident in talking to them they knew my needs. Great food, perfect for the whole family and for once I wasn’t holding anyone back.

Almost everything on the menu is Gf, including egg rolls. They have Gf wings, and recently started providing a Gf fortune cookie (a Gf Oreo in a baggie with a fortune written on it). It’s sort of Asian fusion not “Chinese “ and we really love it. Very knowledgeable and careful staff.

This is my favorite GF spot in Lexington because there are so many options! The owner is also GF. Almost everything is gluten free except lo mein, egg rolls, and some specialty things. I have been here many times and never get sick.
