I got sick after eating at this location this week. The waiter we started with seem to have a clue about food allergies, but then he disappeared and a waitress who really didn't want to wait on our table took over. When I asked her if one of the condiments was gluten-free, she simply responded that maybe it was. I used to do better here, and the combination of now being sick and the really angry and uncommitted attitude of the wait staff, perhaps indicative of an unpleasant workplace, makes me think this place is too dangerous for celiac to eat that. Don't make my mistake and eat here.

Despite having a gluten free menu and supposedly everything being cooked separately I got sick immediately after eating here. I'm almost positive it was due to the food here and not anything else I ate as I ate at home earlier in the day. Unfortunate because the chicken ramen was good (the gf menu option). I'm usually not super sensitive so there must be something in their cooking process that contaminates.

I've gotten sick after eating here more than once :( It's too bad because the Wagmama in London did a great job with keeping the food celiac friendly.

I love Wagamama, but the fryer is shared and the staff is not trained to point out which menu items come from the shared fryer. I stick to rice and steamed veggies after getting sick a few times.

Haven't eaten here, but the dietary filter on the website says only "cereals",..not gluten, not rice, not wheat...and then it takes you to items that contain noodles, possibly rice noodles...I'm sorry, is rice not a cereal grain??

At first I was told the only food option that is GF is the chicken ramen. I believe the waiter was new so I asked him to ask the chef. He came back and gave me 3 options: Chicken Ramen, Pad Thai, and a 3rd I can’t remember that can be made with Tahini sauce instead to make it GF. I also ordered the edamame and since it was just salt, garlic, and red pepper. Not very helpful staff, just be sure to ask questions!

I don’t understand why this place is marked as gluten free, it has no gluten free menu or options marked as gluten free. The waiter wasn’t knowledgeable of what had gluten, I ordered something and later, whom I guess was the manager came and told me that what I ordered would have traces of gluten. So I asked if I could switch for the ginger chicken and she said it would have to be with gluten free soy sauce instead. I got the food and not only did it not taste good and was super salty but also tasted like ginger which makes me wonder if I will end up getting sick
