    These are HUGE salads! They start with a lettuce base (mixed greens, spinach, or romaine, for example) and add whatever ingredients you choose before chopping it all together. My favorite is the Loki Falls salad with salmon, redskin potatoes, asparagus, roasted corn and balsamic vinaigrette. Just let them know you are GF, and they will get a clean cutting board and utensils, and change their gloves before chopping your salad. There are a few gluten toppers on the salad line, so use caution when ordering any ingredient that is beside the gluten items. For example, today the orzo was next to the cranberries, so I did not order a salad with cranberries because of cross contamination. I have never felt sick after eating here, just sad when my salad bowl was empty. It's just so delicious!

    Gluten free menu has a lot of options, though I was not that impressed with my food. I will try it again, since it could have been one of those days my stomach is displeased with everything, much like my angsty teenage daughter.

    This grocery store has just started carrying a variety of gluten free grain items, including bread, wraps, pasta, baking mixes and breakfast bars. They are tasty, and with the right culinary touch, delicious. The prices are VERY good.

    Haiku has a gluten free menu with amazing Asian dishes and delicious sushi. Because we frequent here, they greet us with the gluten free tamari! I really like the Singapore Noodles and the High Street Roll. We also love the Rainbow Roll, with shrimp instead of crab. I have never felt sick after eating here, which is why I visit two to three times a month, sometimes more.

    Though there are limited choices on the menu for gluten free guests, you just can't go wrong with anything at Central. We had the deviled eggs and beef tartare (with puréed potatoes, no fries), and my taste buds were VERY pleased. The bartender made me a delicious summer cocktail based on my drink preferences. If the gluten free choices were more numerous/diverse, we would have visited this restaurant more than once during our Vegas vacation.

    We had chips & salsa, two tacos and the shrimp mojo - all very delicious. We were a little disappointed that most of the gluten free options were very Poblano and less Chinese. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about gluten free dining.

    Whether you get a panini or wrap, you will get a gluten free pita. We got the chipotle turkey wrap and the California panini, with Gluten Free beers. Both dishes were very delicious! We took our mocha and double chocolate cakes to go - YUM!

  • Le Thai

    523 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101

    They don't have a printed gluten free menu, but the servers are well aware of the numerous gluten free dishes they prepare. The food was very delicious, and the service was awesome. Servers are attentive and very quick. If you like spicy food, ask for level 3 or above. And if you like mojitos, get the Thaijito!

  • Nida's Thai On High

    3 starsApril 24, 2014

    976 N High St, Columbus, OH 43201

    Pros: Many gluten free choices and the food is pretty tasty. Soup and sushi are delicious, and the Pad Thai is good with some spice. Cons: Staff is not knowledgeable. We ordered an appetizer that came with a dipping sauce that was not gluten free. We specified the gluten free request when we ordered, and inspected the jar of hoisin sauce used when the sauce looked suspicious. (Yes, gluten looks suspicious to me!) The sauce did have wheat. Had I trusted that server, I would have been sick! Overall, a great place in the Short North to enjoy a variety of food. However, if you have CD, you need to be very diligent and ask lots of questions every time you go. Last visited early 2014.

  • Basil Thai Restaurant

    3 starsApril 24, 2014

    1124 N High St, Columbus, OH 43201

    Pros: The food is pretty good, and there are several gluten free choices. Cons: The staff is usually uninformed and has to check on stuff, which slows down a "quick" lunch visit. They list the fried tofu as gluten free, but it's fried in common oil. I did have a gluten reaction from eating it. Overall, Basil is a good option, but, if you have CD, you need to still be diligent and ask questions every time. Last visited early 2014.
