    Incredible experience! Excellent Chinese food and extremely Celiac friendly. They have a dietician on staff (at the restaurant on Saturday nights) who advises on the menu and GF protocols, and who spoke to us to make suggestions. Very friendly staff and could not tell difference between GF and regular food. Our favorite Chinese restaurant! Highly recommended!

    Very, very conscientious - my son is extremely sensitive to cross-contamination and had no issues. They seem to really understand how to keep things GF safe.

    Staff was amazing and helpful. Ordered the gluten free sweet and sour chicken. Fried with corn starch and a water chestnut flour breading. Came out so delicious. Excited to go back and try something else!

    They are very knowledgeable about preparing gluten free food and avoiding cross contamination. The food is delicious and they can prepare most items gluten free. I have eaten here many, many times with no problems. They do a tremendous gluten free business as they provide safe and tasty Chinese food. This is the only restaurant that I have been to as many times as I have with never having a problem. I would highly recommend.

    The man at the bar who served us was a dietitian and knew all about cross contamination etc. not to mention the food was phenomenal! We especially loved the chicken fingers which I never thought I would have again. Fantastic find!

    I went here for the first time last night and was so excited. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and the server (possibly the owner) explained that they use cornstarch and a separate fryer. She gave great recommendations, don’t skip the Grandmas Shrimp! Every plate brought out was specified as gluten free and all the sauces as well. All in all, this was a great experience and it’s been years since I’ve had Chinese food like this! I will definitely be back!

    Delicious, amazing pride taken in preparing and packing up (to go) gluten free dishes. No reactions to any food immediately or several days later. The food is so so so good. I haven't had Chinese food in decades. I wish I was here more or that they had a spot near me! Friendly, sweet people. A delicious meal that lasted for two meals with left overs. So much to try when I go back. So happy! Thank you Uncle Cheung's.

    Amazing celiac-safe Chinese food. The owner, Joy, explained how their kitchen runs. They use corn starch and water chestnut flour for breading and it’s all in a completely separate fryer and kitchen area. Even knew to bring me separate duck sauce since my parents got a gluten filled appetizer. Definitely will be going back here ASAP!

    Went to Uncle Cheung's on the basis of reviews from findmeglutenfree and was very happy! I haven't had Chinese food like this since before Celiac, and I did not get sick from anything we ordered. The woman who took our order was very knowledgeable and friendly, and told us immediately what was available GF (almost all mains and some appetizers). Really excited to have a Celiac-safe takeout place to order from.

    Most entrees can be made gluten free and they even have their own breading to make fried chicken for their dishes!

    It is almost impossible to find GF Chinese and this place did not disappoint. I called ahead to speak with the owner and was very pleased with their knowledge and attentiveness. They have a dedicated GF space and fryer. I will definitely go back when I am in the area.

    The staff here was wonderful! My daughter hasn’t been able to have Chinese since needed to go Gf and she was so excited. We had sesame shrimp, shrimp dumplings and Peking beef. It was great! We will definitely be returning.

    I thought it was amazing, chow fun noodles were something I really missed, and they were good. It’s very hard to find gluten free Chinese, and the waitress/owner was very knowledgeable. She said a large percentage of their customers were gluten free, and in fact a table next to us had multiple allergies. I also thought the general gaos chicken was good, but not the orange chicken. The non gluten free in our party were not very happy, but they also prefer very traditional American Chinese and maybe weren’t used to gluten free fried food. Next time I’d like to try some of the more authentic Chinese dishes, of which there were plenty.

    This place is fantastic! I would give it 10 stars if I could. The staff is very knowledgeable and they are very careful. They also have a large gluten free list. I have been here many times over the years and have never had a problem. Just a heads up if you want to order for New Year's Eve get your order in early. It's their busiest day and in order to make sure your food is safe they stop taking gluten free orders after a certain time. Can't recommend this place enough!

    The food and the service were 5 stars - excellent for our family. My son has celiac's disease so we researched where to go while in town. The GF food was amazing for everyone at the table! Almost everything is GF there!!! How about that!? Could NEVER tell!! I have not been to such a good place in years...and I am not GF. I wish they had another location in my home town in CT! Super nice people, family owned! Checked often to make sure we liked everything and when we ordered....made sure we knew what items were safe (which were most)! So nice when everyone is happy!!

    This is the worlds best gluten free Chinese food! The owners son is a nutritionist and understands the importance of having strictly gluten free work places. I love the egg drop soup, general taus chicken, and pork fried rice. My whole family loves the restaurants gluten free and regular food. It deserves all five of the stars.

    I went here a while ago but the food we got was disgusting. We ordered several different meals, 2 of which were pasta dishes and the noodles were slimy. The fryer oil had clearly not been changed when it should have been. I would never go again and it was definitely one of the worst restaurants I've ever been to. Only reason they get 2 stars is because I didn't get sick.

    We've been here multiple times since my son's celiac diagnosis and have always come away satisfied. So great that we can all eat GF but still have our favorite dishes! Such a boon for families affected by celiac, but also great for those unaffected. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Owners are fabulous people! 95% of the menu can be made gluten free. They have a separate area of the kitchen, and keep all ingredients and prep separate! They do a lot of gf business, as many family members of the owners have celiac, and son is a dietician! Great food! Great quality and prices!

    Like others have said, 90%+ of their menu items can be made gluten free. There is no separate GF menu, but the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and it's very easy to select and order GF items. They are also very proud of their GF selection and seem to get a lot of joy in making safe food. Every time we go there are always at least a few other tables ordering gluten free. Today everyone in there, including take out orders, was ordering GF! If you have Celiac and are craving Chinese food, this is definitely the place to go. Highly recommended and definitely Celiac safe!

    I grew up going to this restaurant enjoying their regular menu, and now was so thrilled that they could accommodate my three year old daughter who has Celiac when we visited from out of state. The owner's son is a dietician and they take care to not cross-contaminate. They can make ~90% of their menu GF, and use water chestnut flour for the coating on dishes like crispy orange beef. We are fortunate that we can usually tell if she gets "glutened" and I'm happy to report that she happily feasted and has had no incident since. So great that Uncle Cheung's can continue to be our family's favorite Chinese restaurant in the area for years to come!

    Have been here twice, first time service was 100% perfect great food. Second time, chicken was not fully cooked. Very pink in the middle. Gluten safe yes, cooked right no. Was disappointed. Not sure I will go back...

    I was amazed by this place. Don't be fooled by the minimal decor the food is totally worth it. They really could transform nearly anything on the menu to be gluten free, service was speedy, food was excellent! We were actually one of six allergy parties in the restaurant at the time.

    Absolutely amazing!!! I have not had Chinese in years! I am so impressed with how everything is prepared in order to avoid cross contamination with wheat containing products. The food is wonderful and it was great to be ensured by the dietitian that I would not become ill and end up in the hospital with an allergic reaction or stoned on Benadryl. This will be my place of choice from now on when we are in town. The added bonus is that their restaurant has been modified to be fully wheel chair accessible!
