    My boyfriend and I asked the hostess here earlier in the week if they have gluten free items on the menu, and were happily told yes. We decided to have lunch here a few days later. Our waitress was new, and didn't know if anything on the menu was gluten free, but was very friendly, and repeatedly asked the kitchen questions for us. The green curry, and one other item on the menu (pad phet, I think), we were told, were the only two dishes they could guarantee were safe. We ordered the green curry. Unfortunately, our food was sent from the kitchen with won tons on the plate...we were one of two tables at the time, so it shouldn't have been that difficult to remember which order was the gluten free one. I asked the man what they were made from, and said I couldn't have gluten, so were they made with wheat, etc. He replied, "yes, they are made from wheat," and left without offering to fix the problem. The curry itself was in a separate bowl, the won ton was on the salad plate. So, we ate the curry (which is always delicious here), and pushed the rest aside. The waitress apologized when we told her what had happened, but we weren't offered any replacement for the contaminated salad. A shame, as their salads are always very tasty. Given that there were gluten free options on the menu, and that this has alway been a favourite from before being diagnosed, I say it's worth going back, but the knowledge of the staff needs working on. As is, it's hardly celiac friendly, even if their menu has options.

    Excellent gluten free options. We had the hamburgers on gluten free rolls that were delicious.

    A wonderful place to eat! The staff are very friendly, and the atmosphere excellent. While numerous people did try to put bread on our table, they happily took it away again when I explained we were celiac. The dedicated gluten free menu was brought straight over when requested, and it was extensive! 12 different items in all, I believe. The dishes we ordered were delicious. My boyfriend and I were both very pleased all around with this great restaurant, and we plan to visit it again!
