Was thrilled to actually get a Bao GF here! Very tasty stuffed Asian bun thing. The broth and teriyaki chicken rice bowl were also delicious. Overall very satisfied.

Very easy ordering system (we used kiosk out front) and the menu was clear and showed all allergens. The gluten free bao was excellent! Safe for celiacs! And prices were fair too!

The menu was clear and helpful, it was easy to figure out what I could eat and there were a couple of great options. The gluten free Bao was amazing and I had never seen a gluten free version before. It was really good! Great for takeout and a quick meal

A fun Asian automated fast food spot. Mostly non-GF but they do have GF Bao which is something I’ve never seen. They also have a GF bone broth and a GF teriyaki chicken bowl with rice and veggies

They only have gf teriyaki chicken buns, but they are amazing! I lived in Hong Kong for two years before and ate buns almost daily. I was shocked when I tried these at how close they taste to the real thing. They steam them in a separate steam stack to avoid cross contamination. I highly recommend trying them out!

They now offer gluten free chicken teriyaki buns. The preparation was very safe, and they were good (not great), but nice to have an option

Only 1 food option - the Thai curry chicken bowl with white or multigrain rice. Staff couldn't explain why the quinoa wasn't an option?
