We avoid...which is a deep and painful scarifice (haha)! However, DDs last reaction was a contact, cross contamination reaction from something at the restaurant.

We used to occasionally eat at a Chinese restaurant but we would always take along my son's 'safe' food.
The owner of the restaurant, whom we were VERY good friends with, had a seafood allergy and guaranteed that he could prepare something safe for my son, but I never would allow my son to eat it.
I have heard that most of the time they don't truly clean the woks out between meals as they like the oils and seasonings to penetrate deep into the woks. Now, I am not sure if this is accurate or not...but I can understand the reasoning behind it.

We avoid Chinese restaurants when Jason is with us, but he's anaphylactic to shellfish and tree nuts and allergic to soy, sesame, and egg, as well as peanut allergic. Not worth the risk.
We do pick up take out Chinese occasionally, but we never let him eat it, and we use disposable plates and utensils to eat it with.
edited to add: we do take Jason to Vietnamese noodle houses (Pho) though. He's only allowed to order 1 item off the menu, and the rest of us make it a point not to order shellfish or peanut bearing items.

We do eat at a few different Chinese restaurants. We're careful what we order, and that's about it. This has worked out fine for dd, fortunately.

We never take our PA son to chinese restaurants. When you consider how little most people understand PA, add english as a second language, it makes sense to skip.
However, my PA son absolutely loves potstickers. He's been eating Safeway brand Chicken & Pork potstickers for years with no problem.
I haven't successfully made any chinese dishes at home. I worry about imported ingredients and the potential for cross contamination. Anyone know of safe hoisin?
I'd love any recipes you all have had success with.

Kung Pao Chicken = PEANUTS
Sesame Noodles = Peanut Butter
Cross-contamination risk too high!

Jeepers! Eventhough I have no food allergies I get this weezy feeling after eating the Cashew Chicken even without MSG. I'm sensitive to their god dammned perservatives and other s--- they add. I can't prononuce half of the entress. Try saying Mu-Shu chicken or Yang Tang's chicken. And how can you trust the waiter since it can be hard to understand what they are saying.
I don't mean to be racists in anyway. I like Asian People,and will go to a select few restaurants given they spell out what the heck makes me so tired and then I get hungry right away.
Plese accept my appologies if I have offended you but this is my opinion.

We avoid all Asian food due to my son's PA,TNA, Shellfish, Seafood, Sesame and Soy allergies. I would assume that there is at least one if not all of these cross contamination hazzards in all Asian type restaurants and food. That is not to say that we don't miss it dearly but I love my son dearly more!!! Be well.
