Great Chinese for gluten-free diners at restaurant in British Columbia

Reviewer: Linda_GF from Bunbury, Australia

This Chinese restaurant really knows its gluten-free. They knew what I could / couldn't have and why. They had a gluten-free menu and also advised that some of the other items were gluten free but cooked in the same oil as non- GF (latest research shows there is probably little cross contamination so that is OK with me personally). As a result I had spring rolls and sweet and sour pork for the first time in many years and it was delicious. A great budget chinese restaurant for the whole family.

False advertising for gluten-free dining at restaurant in Waikiki

Reviewer: Linda_GF from Bunbury, Western Australia
Reviewed on Jan 24, 2012

While on a family vacation to Waikiki we were recommended a visit to the Cheesecake Factory. Obviously I was concerned by the name that there would be nothing gluten free, however a search of their website assured me they could cater to allergies and modify the menu if required. When we arrived there was a huge line up outside and we really didn't want to wait but the teenagers had their hearts set on it, so we waited (2 hours). I had a look at the extensive menu while waiting and picked out a few items which sounded like they could be gluten free. (There was no indication on the menu of ingredients/ allergen advice). However once seated, the waitress had to check on my first choice, not GF, my second, not GF, my third....by this time the poor waitress was beside herself, the other people in my group hungry and I was ready to walk out. Finally the manager arrived and said I could have a basic piece of grilled protein with mashed potato and carrot and a basic salad. No sauces. The other vegetables were washed with the water used to cook pasta. I was very disappointed to say the least. However my main complaint is that the website (and menu) claimed to be able to cater for allergies. I don't call what was offered catering.

Great restaurant in Australia for families looking to dine gluten-free

Reviewer: Linda_GF from Bunbury, Australia

This is our family's favourite chinese restaurant. They are very aware of what has gluten and what doesn't so I always feel safe eating here. They use potato starch as the main thickener. About the only things I can't have are anything battered or with soy sauce (like the fried rice). My favourites are the Singapore noodles, San Choy Bow and the Birdsnest. Great for lunch, dinner or takeaway, very quick service and they don't mind a large group with noisy kids. Very friendly and highly recommended.
