Tasty gluten-free Chinese food!,

Reviewer: Fran0717 from Minneapolis, Minne

My mother and I (both celiacs) went to D Fong's on the recommendation of a friend. When we arrived, we were given the gluten free menu right away. We were so excited to see items like shrimp egg foo young and chow mein on the menu! We got both these dishes, and an order of vegetable fried rice to share, all of which was excellent. The portion sizes were generous and they don't charge you an arm and a leg for gluten-free! Julie our server was fantastic. She was knowledgible and willing to answer all our questions (or go ask the chefs if she didn't know!). She was very reassuring. The chefs have a very specific process they follow to keep the food safe from cross-contamination, including cleaning the woks and separately prepping the vegetables and meats for gluten-free dishes only. I am quite sensitive to even small amounts of gluten from cross contamination, and I had NO reaction whatsoever. They do include MSG in the dishes, but most can be made without it if you ask. The staff are very willing to accommodate your needs. Overall, an excellent experience, with lots of left-overs! Now if only they were closer to my house, I'd go more often!

Wonderful Chinese dining experience!,

I have eaten at D. Fong's on two occasions. Both times were great AND relaxed. David Fong Jr. has worked very hard to educate himself and his staff on gluten free dining. They have a separate gluten free menu available at the restaurant and on their website. You can email Mr. Fong with questions at info@dfongs.com. I also talked to him in person on my second visit. The items I have enjoyed were Shrimp Egg Foo Young, Moo Goo Gai Pan and Vegetable Fried Rice. They have recently added wine and beer to the menu, so I enjoyed a glass of red wine with my meal. Julie was my waitress both times I have eaten at D. Fong's. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant has both booths and tables. It is clean and comfortable with an attractive decor. They offer take out, in addition to dining at the restaurant. I definitely plan to go there again, even though it is 18 miles from my home. My leftovers heated up beautifully so I recommend you order extra to take home.

Gluten cross contamination at restaurant in Minnesota,

Reviewer: Healing

We had read the review on this site and were enthusiastic about D. Fongs. I have learned, from this experience, to ask detail questions before sitting down, or even stopping in ahead of time. It is difficult when you take a child who seldom gets to eat out, and sit them down , give them the menu and then need to now leave. I have learned a great deal through this journey of GF. D. Fongs is a great resturant. However, for those who have severe reactions and sensitivity to Gluten, I would caution eating at D. Fongs. THe options are confusing to understand, we spoke with D.Fong, who I belive is trying with all the knowledge he has to offer gluten free, however, we are all learning on this journey. My instict told us to leave, however there was an assurance it was gluten free. Our child ended up with severe reactions after eating. I want to encourage this resturant to continue to gain knowledge on GF, and as the consumer, I feel I need to continue gaining knowledge on GF eating out. Is this a good fit for our family? Please note, any Gluten, causes a severe reaction for our son. It doesn't mean there was a large amount, just his body reacts. Again, I am writing this review to help others, who may be new on the journey, and to understand, if one person gives it raving reviews, check it out ahead of time for the needs of your family. Glad it worked for the previous reviewer, I understand the joy of finding a place that works. Thank you
