    Busy menu but def GF options. Large space restaurant, lot of business. cauliflower soup, avocado salad, cooked veggies made for clean quick lunch. Can't speak for the GF meat substitute.

    I love their food, but I think they used the "wheat free" label on their menu kind of haphazardly. For example, Wonton Soup had the "WF" ("=gluten free") label on the menu but they scribbled it out with pen... probably because the noodle wrappers are wheat. There are a few fried rice dishes that are labeled "WF" but... it's fried rice. Soy sauce? The food is good, though now I try to stick with rice noodle soups and non-sauce veggies. [[[EDIT]]] OK, so I felt bad about the review in April (I originally wrote this in March-ish?) which pointed a finger at me for never eating the fried rice. I made an assumption based on every recipe I've seen for fried rice. So yesterday I ordered it. It's just fried in oil! Very good, no soy sauce at all. It's enough for a meal really, though next time I might ask for some mushrooms or something in there - yum! Happy about having that as an option.

    Their seitan is delicious and hearty. They make the best sauces, especially the one that comes with the scallion pancakes!

    Food is delicious. I've never had a problem. Please know if you are debating going based on reviews that as one person said (who obviously hadn't eaten it), the fried rice is gluten free, they don't put any soy sauce on it. The fried rice is delicious!

    We shared two dishes, both labeled "wheat-free" on the dining in menu, and "gluten-free" on the take-out menu: the Singapore noodles and the mango chicken. The food was tasty. The Singapore noodles were particularly good, reminding me of the type that I've eaten many times at a pan-Asian restaurant with real chicken. The mango chicken was a bit sweet, in that old-fashioned American Chinese food style, and there were real pieces of fresh mango. In both dishes, the "meat" had a satisfying texture that in my experience usually comes from wheat gluten, but they've been doing more exciting things with vegetable protein since my teenage vegetarian days. It was nothing like chicken, but maybe like overcooked pork. We believed them that it was wheat/gluten-free, and not cross-contaminated, and I ate. Three and a half stars for the food. Within an hour, I had a sore throat, and now I'm itchy (dermatitis herpetiformis) and up coughing at 3 am, and I assume I'll see all the other effects of being "glutened". I didn't eat anything else outside my routine; more than 90% of the food that I eat is from our home, anyhow. As we went to sleep last night, my husband said, "I don't want you to get lymphoma," the cancer associated with celiac disease. Sorry, Veggie Heaven. I know that you want to draw in customers who are gluten-free for their own, non-celiac, reasons, but please don't make these gluten-free claims if you can't back them up. As for me, I'm done with vegetarian Chinese restaurants for good. I truly enjoy the food, but it's not worth the risk. Who knows how the gluten got into the dish, but between the lack of quality control in food manufacturing in China (melamine, anyone?), and the amount of gluten floating around these restaurants, mistakes are easy.

    Tons of gluten free items clearly marked on menu. Also gluten free deserts. I'm not vegetarian or vegan but I love this place and go about once a week now.
