They can make almost any dish gluten free! It’s so great to have that option with Chinese food again. It is a little pricey but I love it

I took my niece who has celiac here... She was thrilled to be able to enjoy all of the dishes we ordered. The menu is clearly marked with many GF selections and the dishes we ordered were all carefully made so NO stomach problems! The food was delicious! We have been to this restaurant numerous times and have greatly enjoyed every meal. I highly recommend the Zen Chinese Bistro!

I have to say, beside having a menu that clearly articulates GF dishes, the food was probably the best authentic Chinese I have had in years. Great staff as well.

Just remember to ask for the GF soy sauce for the table.

Great place.

Zen Chinese Bistro is a gourmet, healthy and delicious Chinese restaurant. They offer a HUGE selections of GLUTEN FREE choices. Everything on the menu is well marked for GLUTEN FREE, and it is very helpful. They use a lot of local sources for their entrees so it is very fresh. The food is fresh, healthy and delicious. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I got glutened. They offer a number of gluten-free items on their general menu (marked GF) but I do not feel it was celiac-safe.

I love, love, love Zen Chinese Bistro! I've gotten take-out several times, and dine-in once. The GF selection is fantastic, especially for a Chinese restaurant. I've never had a bad reaction here, for which I am so thankful. The staff is so wonderful—always warm and welcoming. Oh, and the Chicken with Ginger & Scallion is to die for!

Big portions and good prices. I had the Kung Pao Chicken, it was great! Their selection of gluten free is pretty good, though most of it includes items that don't contain gluten in general. But, the fact that they are aware of GF is a big plus! I'll definitely eat there again! The staff was friendly, the service was quick, and the ginger mojito was delicious!
