well i FINALLY did it ... i went to pf changs. on a date with my husband none the less. all of the posts got to me and i felt i needed to check it out first hand. and it was a fantastic experience! the food was incredible. the staff made me feel confident they understood my gluten intolerance and their ability to prepare my food safely. if you haven't tried this restaurant yet i highly recommend it.

and i highly recommend the chicken lettuce wraps. :D i can't wait to go again! hee! :) :)

Good for you. I am glad the experience was good. I always get the General Pso (sp?) chicken and the green beans with garlic. Yum. I wish they had one closer to me as it is a 45 minute drive but well worth it.

that is about the distance of ours. and you are right ... worth the drive! i will give that dish a try next time we go. its does sound good. i'd try take out but it probably wouldn't make it all the way home. hee! :)

I had a really good experience when i went to PF changs, too.
I was really antsy and nervous about eating out after 4 months of not eating out, but the staff made me feel more confident.
there was nothing on the gluten free menu that i could even eat as such, but they made me chicken with bok choy and spinich with no salt (have to avoid iodine because of my dermititas herpetiformis, i've found out)
It was actually really good, even though it sounds boring!?
it was nice knowing they were taking my request for no salt seriously!

Yum!!

We went to PF Changs post dxn and had a super yummy dinner, I got really sick the next day and I thought it was gluten but everyone said they are SUPER careful. Well a few months later found out I was allergic to soy, so I am sure that was what it was.

I am very very very sad I probably can't eat there anymore :(. I miss soy sauce and chinese type food.

there are others here allergic to soy and they said they can still eat there as long as you let them know gluten AND soy. :)

I know this thread is older, but I wanted to share my experience at PF Changs.

Overall it was a great experience---my first experience with a restaurant since having to go gluten free. The manager and waitress appeared knowledgeable and the protocol the manager described was very good.

When the meal was served (I was with people who didn't have to avoid gluten) was where a problem occurred, but it didn't register with me until after the food was served, and since I'm not super sensitive and I was starving after a day shopping, I didn't worry with it. You see, the waitress was not the one serving the food. It's all well and great to have special plates denoting gluten free, but when a server handles all the gluten regular plates when serving, before handling the gluten free plate, there is a chance of cross contamination that could pose a problem for someone who is super sensitive. Considering how full the tray was with platters, one would have to wonder about that as well.

I didn't feel so great later in the evening, but the D and fatigue could have been just from my day out. I keep meaning to speak with someone at that PF Changs, but life keeps getting in the way.

I'm glad that many have great success at their PF Changs and I think the restaurant does a pretty good job, but I did want to mention this so perhaps the restaurants can be educated on this. Next time I get up the nerve to eat out I think I'm going to ask that they make sure to serve my food first on a separate trip. (I do tip accordingly. :) )

I just did some research on the Hot Mustard Sauce at PF Changs and although the server may tell you the mustard sauce is ok, it is defintiely NOT Gluten free. The chef confirmed for me they use regular soy sauce in it when they make their batches and they don't make any special batches with the wheat free soy sauce. So be Careful!
