    sigh. I went back here after I vowed never again because my coworkers wanted to celebrate a birthday and chose this place. the response I got to questions about cross contamination I got was "if it says gluten free we make it glutenfree". not comforting. I ordered the papaya salad just to b safe as I'm pretty sure it's inherently gluten free (I asked about the fish sauce and was told to order the gluten free version) I ended up with vegan papaya salad and was told later that the fish sauce was glutenfree (my coworker order the papaya salad regular and mine was super dark and weird looking sauce which I found our later was because it was vegan so gluten free soy sauce and sugar)wtf. I didn't get sick thank god but I'm never going back,they need to get some education on food service and allergies or not proclaim gluten free options all over their menu!

    I visited this place after a coworker told me they had gf food; a few months after it opened. The server couldn't answer any questions I had about the menu (like whether any meats were gf). The server asked the manager to help me instead. The manager didn't know either. So we left.

    They have no idea what gluten is. I asked if the sauce has gluten and the response I got was "it doesn't have tomatoes". No thank you.

    A definite find. Traveling through Sacramento with varied food allergies and picky palates, we were so happy to find this place. We ordered gluten free, egg free and organic meats and everything was delish and authentic. Water was even amazing with its mint and lemon infusion. Service was friendly and accommodating and bathroom was clean (also a big deal to us). Definitely recommend.

    Celiac friendly if you stick to the dedicated GF menu items. I wouldn't risk ordering the "GF available" options, as with places like this--hard as they may try--their cookware is saturated in gluten sauces. Plenty of safe delicious GF dedicated options! i.e.: spring rolls w/gf peanut sauce, papaya salad, larb, curries... their soups are listed GF but I wasn't brave enough to test them. it should also be noted that I ordered everything vegan so as to further guard against potential cross contamination in meats / fish sauce (which can sometimes contain hydrolyzed wheat protein)

    The menu is organized but they are not organized inside. I think I got sick here.

    Great GF Thai food! Menu lists items that are already GF as well as items that can be made GF upon request. Cider in bottles and on tap.
