GF items are not marked on the menu, however staff is knowledgeable and can make the ramen gluten free, replacing the ramen with rice noodles.

They could make most dishes gluten free. However, the food was very mid and disappointing. Not the worst pad Thai I’ve had but definitely not great

I called ahead to find out what options they had available. They have a rice noodle that they said could be substituted in the chicken ramen, and that to ask for the item to be made gluten free. The menu is not labeled.

It wasn’t bad, but tasted basically like chicken noodle soup.

Given the limited options I would recommend going somewhere else if you have a choice.

We shared our allergies very clearly at the beginning of the meal. Unfortunately the chicken donburi bowl made me very sick, even though it was supposed to have been prepared GF and Sesame free. Neither were noted on the ticket, so I think they just didn't do it. Ruined my meal and my day.

They tried to help me make choices that would have the least amount of gluten, but I don't think there's anything other than edamame that's safely gluten free. They asked about cross contamination being a thing.

I mainly wanted to say that there is no gluten free menu, and there is nothing that indicates what has or doesn't have allergins. I did get a ride bowl with some things on it. I expect some level of contamination.

I thought this restaurant would be ok to try bc a previous review said "almost everything can be made gluten free". That's incorrect.

As of January 2023 only 3 things in the menu can be made gluten free (as per the waiter). Chicken Pad Thai, Chicken Ramen and another chicken dish I forgot.

Already seemed to be the blandest items on the menu and making it gluten free caused items (and flavors) to be left out.

My two gluten eating dinner companions said their food was just ok, as well.

Things must have improved greatly in a year because I’m as sensitive as they come and had no issues here. Everyone took great care of me from the host, to the waitress Laúra, to the manager Andrea. Classify your celiac as “severe gluten allergy” and they will guide you through selecting and modifying your order. I ordered edamame (safe as it comes) and a Wagamama salad. However, the menu is not marked GF and the wait staff instructed me to hold the dressing and noodle crunch and steam my tofu. I wouldn’t have known this without their help. Thank goodness for an amazing staff and a very safe and yummy option in Faneuil Hall!

A few years back, I was pretty sure Wagamama had little gf symbols on their menu, but this seems to no longer exist. The staff wasn’t too sure about gluten free options and had to ask a manager. There were very few options (maybe two or three) and when I got my food, it looked like the tofu was fried in something, so we asked to confirm. Ended up eating it because they said it was fine. While I somehow didn’t get sick after, it was very suspicious and didn’t feel safe for celiacs at all.

It was ok, of course it’s not really Ramen when they take out the Ramen and replace with rice noodles. I’m pretty sure they took out a lot of flavors but it was ok.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

This was so gross. The waiter was very dirty with long dirty nails, and was rude about my celiac questions. There were also breadcrumbs on the forks which put me off. The curry I got tasted like it came out of a can.

Was very excited to try do to a friend who had raved about it in the U.K. All the staff had horrible attitudes and gave incredibly horrible service starting with the host. The manager came to talk to me about GF and took our order. Received edamame with ramen noodles on them! Even tho they are labeled GF on the menu. They use the same water for edamame as ramen!! Apparently you have to specify GF even tho it says it on the menu. Risked some noodles and they were bland, flavorless and insipid. Not worth it gluten free or not. Huge disappointment and risk.

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.

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?

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.
