I've eaten here twice with no issues! This is huge because in addition to not being able to eat gluten, I developed a sensitivity to sesame recently and it's knocked a lot of food off the market for me. Their green curry is delicious and hasn't upset my stomach, even on a day when I was already feeling iffy. Their menu has the GF options clearly marked, which is a huge help. They don't offer a huge variety of choices for GF, but what they do have is delicious. If you're not big on spice, do mind the spice labels, because they mean it. (personally, I'm a huge spice lover, but it did clear my nose)

Today was the second time we've eaten at this restaurant. They have gluten free marked on the menu, though there are not a lot of options. I had the Pad Thai with chicken today. My husband had the Drunken Noodles which they said could be made gluten free though it was not labeled. The last time we came we asked about their precautions and still ate there, so it must have been reassuring precautions as I'm usually fairly careful. Everything was tasty, not amazing but good.

Great GF options. They sent the manager over to help. They have GF soy sauce and were able to make sushi, fried rice, noodle dishes and curry dishes. Delicious!

We were nervous at first because our server had no idea what we were talking about, but thankfully the manager did. The menu had GF items marked very clearly. We had the Tom Kha, Larb, and Pad Thai. Usually know within thirty minutes if I’ve been glutened and I feel fine! The food was excellent. Only giving it a 4 because I generally like everyone on staff to be knowledgeable about gluten.

I had the pad Thai vegetable and it was really good. They didn’t have stir fries as choices. Just the Pad Thai and curry dishes. Great location in Old Town and nice service.

I'm placing my order now. I'll let you know if I have a reaction. Their menu is labeled and they have gluten free soy sauce. The waitress went to check with the Chef on adjusting my order to be gf.
