CALIFORNIA


Cơm 90°

Location: San Jose, California

“A Vietnamese restaurant in San Jose close to where my son trains. He orders the beef pho soup; he hasn’t tried other dishes. The staff speaks good English and always helpful with allergies. They check with the kitchen when you mention allergies.”

@allergyzealmom who manages celiac and tree nut, milk, egg, shellfish, and wheat allergies

Jjukku Jjukku BBQ

Location: Los Angeles, California

“All the meats are 100% GLUTEN-FREE as long as they are unmarinated! You prepare your food at your own table and can clean your grill to know its safe. An incredible all-you-can-eat experience that will leave you so satisfied! I recommend just keeping it coming on the beef.”

@gluttenous who manages celiac and egg, wheat, and grain allergies

Mignon Pho + Seafood

Location: San Diego, California

“There were many items here that were dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and without sesame. The waiter is always helpful and the food has not given me issues.”

@gfbri who manages celiac and milk, egg, wheat, sesame, fruit, and grain allergies

moonbowls 3rd St.

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Dedicated gluten-free take out/delivery spot. They specialize in healthy Korean food with a ton of vegan options as well. I love this place so much. My go to order is the cauliflower wings, hot chicken, Impossible bulgogi beef, and Sweet Loren’s cookie dough for dessert!”

@andglutenfree who manages celiac and oyster allergies

Xi’an

Location: Beverly Hills, California

“The most delicious Chinese food with a staff that is careful and aware of allergies. My family has dairy, shellfish, peanut and gluten allergies and we have never gotten sick at Xi’an. The waiters are kind; the atmosphere is always a pleasant time. They mark allergies on the receipt if you order take out and they are able to make nearly EVERY dish gluten-free! I recommend the minced chicken lettuce cups—they are the best I’ve ever had from any restaurant. If you can tolerate gluten, I recommend the veggie spring rolls which are also the best spring rolls anyone in my family (disclaimer: I’ve never tried them due to celiacs) claims to have ever had!”

FLORIDA


Bolay

Location: Gainesville, Florida

“Can’t go wrong with the Asian sweet potato noodles. It’s hard to stray away from that base. I always feel safe at Bolay regarding gluten/wheat.”

@jospino who manages celiac and milk and wheat allergies

Hawkers Asian Street Fare

Location: Jacksonville, Florida

“Not that many options for me since I am gluten-free and pescatarian, so the only thing I order here is the Singapore curry noodles, which they are so delicious and always amazing, so I do enjoy this place a lot and the staff are educated on what is gluten-free.”

@lillyy7 who manages celiac


ILLINOIS


BIBIBOP Asian Grill

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to try this place! I just went for the first time and loved it! It’s 100% gluten-free and designated as a “Validated Gluten-Free Safe Spot” by the Gluten Intolerance Group, so I felt very safe eating here! They have a variety of delicious options and unique ingredients to choose from to create your own Korean bowl served in a fast-casual style.”

@silverl2 who manages celiac and wheat allergies

HaiSous Vietnamese Kitchen

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I love dining at HaiSous. They are hyper aware of allergies, including peanuts. While they have peanuts on the menu, their staff and chef are very dedicated to ensuring an allergy-friendly environment as he has family members with many allergies. Meals that are both gluten-free and peanut-free have never been an issue or concern, they are AWESOME there!”

@drizzlekitchen who manages celiac

@lisamichal who manages celiac

NEBRASKA


Saigon Surface

@abbykohl who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat, and sesame allergies

NEW YORK


Asian Wave

Location: Thornwood, New York

“My gluten-free coworker and I eat here frequently and have never had a reaction—we avoid soy sauce though. Volcano roll is safe.”

@zeenova who manages celiac

Dynasty Dim Sum

Location: New York, New York

“I ate here with my daughter and granddaughters expecting to only eat a bowl of white rice. The excellent waitstaff wouldn’t hear of it! He knew exactly what oils they used, how they prepped and could cook each dish, and assured me that they could prepare with all my allergies in mind! It was amazing! I had organic chicken sautéed in canola oil, steamed broccoli, and fluffy white rice. I also had a steaming pot of jasmine green tea! Delicious!!”

@lorettaspage who manages celiac and tree nut, soy, wheat, fruit, grain, and legume allergies

How Tin Kitchen

Location: Medford, New York

“Celiac-safe Chinese food…a dream! A family member of the owner has celiac. so they adapted and made many options 100% gluten-free including foods like sesame chicken and General Tso’s. They don’t have a separate gluten-free menu, but just call and ask if it can be made gluten-free or not. Many items can and they are very understanding! Ask for extra sauce on the side with the chicken dishes, as they can be a bit dry in my experience.”

@gflongisland who manages celiac

Hunan Cottage

Location: Plainview, New York

“Gluten-free Chinese food is hard to come by but I’m so thankful I now live close to a place that has safe options. I placed an online order here and there was an option to select “Make it gluten-free” for most of the menu items! I was skeptical about the dumplings and some of their noodle dishes, even though there was an option to make it gluten-free, so I just ended up ordering the sesame chicken and veggie fried rice. Every dish came labeled as GF and was very tasty! Excited to try more menu items in the future.”

@getmovingluten who manages celiac and milk allergies

Kimbap Lab

Location: New York, New York

“Kimbap Lab is a 100% gluten-free Korean restaurant in NYC! There are two locations. One in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and the other in Chelsea Market in Manhattan. I was blown away by the food! The entire menu is gluten-free with vegan and vegetarian options. I tried the kimbap rolls, kimbap triangles, and dalgona candy. The kitchen is in a shared space but Kimbap Lab uses its own cookware and utensils!”

@gflivingbk who manages celiac

Lilli and Loo

Location: New York, New York

“Lilli and Loo is by far my favorite restaurant for gluten-free Asian cuisine. They have been around for many years and recently reopened in a new location. They have a very large gluten-free menu and are known for their options!”

@gflivingbk who manages celiac

Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen

Location: Troy, New York

“Asian foods are a major pitfall for us, given an allergy to sesame. However, the owner and staff at this farm-to-table restaurant have been wonderful, and my son has been able to eat their kimbap roll, which is as close to sushi as we can get out (short of me making it at home!). We ask for vegan (no egg) and the remainder of the filling is mostly vegetables and tofu. Also, specifically ask for no sesame seeds and no sesame oil brushed on the roll. Sometimes you just have to play detective, have great staff, and know what’s hidden despite a good description of the food on the menu. As for other top 8, there are other dishes that can be made gluten-free/vegan. Note that the broth is a fish-based broth for soups, so that’s something that can’t be altered as far as I know. All in all, one of the few Asian restaurants we can eat at as a family! Love the owner and her helpful staff!”

@abracadaver6 who manages celiac and peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, shellfish, seed, and grain allergies

Nom Wah Tea Parlor

Location: New York, New York

“We ate here successfully and the food was yummy. This was the first time my daughter ever had dim sum. My mom spoke with the waitstaff in Cantonese and they explained that the fried gluten-free dim sum options share a fryer. They do have gluten-free tamari sauce (San-J) to use. The only nut product on the menu was almond cookies. It was cool eating here because our family has been eating there for a long time. Nom Wah is one the original dim sum places in Manhattan China town. The staff do speak English, but we spoke to them in Chinese to make sure they understood.”

@vkotz who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

TLK – by Tigerlily Kitchen

Location: New York, New York

“Visited TLK by Tigerlily recently and was blown away! The entire menu is gluten-free and Asian inspired. Also love that the restaurant is woman-owned. I tried their yucca fries and chicken wings. Both amazing flavors. Definitely recommend if you are visiting the city. Located in the East Village.”

@gflivingbk who manages celiac

Wei West

Location: New York, New York

“I’ve been here twice now and have had great experiences both times. They have the longest gluten-free menu I’ve seen at any restaurant, you actually have the option of Thai, Chinese, Japanese/sushi, and more. The gluten-free items are delicious, I especially like the GF General Tso’s chicken, GF sesame chicken, and the GF fried rice. The food is authentic and the staff was really nice. Great place for a quick meal or takeout!”

@alutin who manages celiac and tree nut, milk, shellfish, fruit, and meat allergies


NORTH CAROLINA


BIBIBOP Asian Grill

Location: Cary, North Carolina

“BIBIBOP is an absolute goldmine. They are a fast-casual Asian fusion style restaurant! They’re 100% dedicated gluten-free and have certifications to prove it. They are also peanut-free, no MSG, and Vegan-friendly. The menu is clearly labeled and items that contain dairy or coconut are clearly noted. Their house-made lemonades and teas are a delight and their coconut milk yogurt with mango is also house-made and to die for! Their food is bursting with fresh ingredients and unlimited flavor. We are so happy they expanded from the Midwest to NC! Definitely download their app and give them a try!”

@kedbach who manages celiac and milk and wheat allergies

VIRGINIA


Duck Chang’s

Location: Annandale, Virginia

“For Chinese food, it can be incredibly hard to find gluten-free items. Duck Chang’s makes it their priority to keep you safe while enjoying great food. Even with their delivery system, if you order something that might have an issue with cross contact, they will call you to alert you and suggest alternative options!”

@kenziemasten who manages celiac and tree nut and wheat allergies


WASHINGTON


Asiana Bistro

@jessngluten1 who manages celiac and milk and wheat allergies


GREECE


Blue Monkey

Location: Agia Pelagia, Greece

“This is an Asian-inspired restaurant at the Amirandes hotel we stayed at for 5 nights. We presented cards to the waiter with our allergies in Greek, and she immediately took it into the kitchen to discuss what we could and could not order. My son ordered a teriyaki-style beef dish and they changed the sauce for him so he could enjoy it safely. We felt very comfortable there and the food was delicious.”

@jlev who manages celiac and a tree nut allergy


SOUTH KOREA


Insadong Geujip

Location: Jongno-gu, South Korea

“The staff were super helpful at this Korean fusion restaurant! It is located in the famous neighborhood of Insadong and is housed in a Korean traditional house! They are known for their Geujip on rice. I got a rice bowl with avocados, corn, red onions, and various chopped greens. It was a refreshing and healthy meal, and I would love to try some more items off of their menu if I were to go again!”

@audreycha who manages peanut, tree nut, egg, shrimp, wheat, seed, and legume allergies

고깃집왕건

Location: Gwangju-si, South Korea

“I loved eating Korean BBQ during my trip, and this was probably my favorite place! We were able to grill the meat right in front of us, and asked for an unseasoned cut for me. They also provided me with wraps and side dishes that were allergy safe. Once the meat was cooked, I was able to use my own dish of smoked salt to sprinkle on top! It was a delicious meal out with my family!”
