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

Told the waiter I was celiac when I sat down and was told not to eat there. Appreciated the honesty, but very disappointing that they don’t even try to accommodate customers with allergies

I got glutened here! They said my meal would be gluten free if they took away one of the sauces. When I got my food the gluten sauce still came, but on the side. They took it away, but I still got sick. CELIACS STAY AWAY!!!!!

On a school trip my eleven year old daughter with celiac was served the wrong meal and was violently ill for a week. CELIACS STAY AWAY we had had a couple good experiences with another Wagamama that closed, and we were very upset at what happened. We will never be dining at any Wagamamas again. I’ll repeat CELIACS STAY AWAY

Beyond average. Staff didn’t seem to know anything about what gluten is - I ordered the pad Thai gluten free: it was rice noodles with no seasoning at all, plus protein and veg. So many other places to eat that I won’t come back here

They were able to make my young daughters gf from the kids menu. My daughter enjoyed something close to chicken noodle soup for the first time since diagnosis (noodles were rice noodles.) my other daughter had something similar to chicken fried rice. Her only complaint was she wanted more chicken.

I ordered gluten free chicken ramen which didn't really taste that great to begin with and was too expensive and I was sick almost immediately. I was traveling from out of town and it was almost impossible to find a bathroom!!! Horrible experience!

They were very knowledgeable--the host took a takeout menu and marked off everything that was naturally GF and which chould be made safe by alteration (they have San-J GF soy sauce, my fave) I had the vegetarian spring rolls, and chicken chili "ramen" with glass noodles, along with a side of lovely fried tofu that I soaked in the super tasty broth. I felt fine both immediately afterwards and several hours after, so they successfully kept me safe. :) Since I still break out in a rash that then bleeds if I get wheat flour based stuff on my hands, I make a decent mine canary, and I'd say that as long as you are clear they will happily show you the options here. (Note: there were also a lot of 'small plates' and sides that are naturally GF and a meal of those would also be awesome. I just super wanted soup) So, a solid four stars, because if they had a km enu pre set up it would have made ot easier on both their on location staff and me :p Dear corporate, just make them a little sheet, ok?

There's one sauce that's gluten free... I ended up with plain rice, plain broccoli, and plain chicken, a horribly bland meal.

No gluten free menu. The server sometimes marks those items that are gluten free and then sometimes they tell you that they can make almost anything gluten free. So then you proceed to ask about certain dishes and then they say, oh, not sure, let me check on that, they disappear for a while and come back to say no, or to tell you that they can make it without this and that. There has to be a better way.

On paper it seems like a great option for gluten free people. In reality, not so much. I went recently and was basically told I could eat rice. Not quite what I'm looking for when dining out. I'd say skip the place and go somewhere else. not worth it.

There is not an actual gluten free menu. The server circles

The gf options on the actual menu.

That's all right but i think some options actually do have gluten on it. So it makes you think if they actually know what gluten free means

So i ordered a mango chicken something and they

Brought me something that tasted like hospital food.

No salt on it. Flavorless. It made me feel like a sick person. Not an allergic one

They're probably good on their regular menu, but i wouldn't recommend the place for a celiac.

Nice to have a decent sit down place at Quincy market. The menu is circled by staff to designate gf. There are some things that come with gf noodles instead of wheat. The mango sauce in the mango curry has gluten in it....Thus becoming a very boring dish. The other options are good. The waitstaff will ask if it's gf due to allergy or preference.

Waiter was very nice about picking out everything on the menu that could be gluten free.. However I ended up with grilled chicken, brown rice and steamed broccoli. Boring.

Ate here with my vegan daughter. No GF menu but there are some GF entrees. The wait staff was polite not knowledgable. The foods I tried did not make me ill, but I thought they tasted like soap. I ate very little and drank a lot if water, hoping my table companions were enjoying themselves enough to not notice.

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!

Staff said they can’t commit to making gluten-free food, despite other locations supporting it. There were only five or so items that could be technically gf. Even the pad Thai is made with soy sauce for some reason. Not helpful, not recommended.

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.
