Finally I got to try this place for lunch and oh my.....it was without question the best gluten-free lunch I've had in town post dx. I could not get over how good it was. Only 2 of about 12 sauces are gluten free - pesto and sweet/sour. I had the pesto along with rice, many fresh veggies and chicken. If you have allergies, you put an allergy stick in your bowl and they make your stir fry meal in a clean wok! I could not get over how great my bowl was after being cooked. They also had Asian rice noodles but as I hadn't inquired if they were gluten-free I just had the rice. Next time I'd check on the noodles for something different. You can have shrimp, chicken or beef I think as your meat or no meat of course. It's $7.99 for lunch and that is a steal for a down town lunch. They do dinner also so DH will be going back to try that out. They have a website but you need to google as I had a hard time finding it and now I can't remember it. The set up is a salad bar type thing so if that would make you anxious, you should probably skip the place. Or you could probably order from their reg. menu which I didn't bother looking as since I knew I wanted to try the stir fry bar. The only downside is that apparently it's an all you can eat place so when I coudn't finish my only bowl of food, I was informed there are no take out containers for guests dinging there. Next time I'll not get more than I can eat as I hate throwing food away when people are dying every day from hunger.

Thanks for sharing! My parents live in ATL. It's always great to hear of new places that are safe to eat at down there. A great thai place that my parents go to often and that I MUST go to everytime i'm in town is:

Phuket Thai Restaurant (everyone makes fun of the name b/c it sounds like a dirty word :o )

(404) 325-4199

2839 Buford Hwy Ne

Atlanta, GA 30329

The shopping strip thingy where it's located isn't exactly the nicest looking and may scare some initially but I promise it's a great, clean and Gluten Free place to eat. The food is DELICIOUS!! The owners are wonderful too!! My parents are "regulars" and so are their gluten-free friends....Check it out sometime!

Thanks for the recent visit review on The Real Chow Baby. I had a good media lunch there last year, and actually sent an email to the culinary head to ask about gluten-free sauces and stuff, and they told me they would have to research it but never got back to me. Also, that's great about the "allergy stick" thing- I was concerned about recommending them as a gluten-free dining spot only because of the possible cross-contamination the Mongolian grill style cooking can present. But that's good to know they cook it in a clean wok.
