    We had a nice dinner at Basil Thai last night. Please note that they use a shared fryer for GF and non-GF foods, so fried foods (included on the GF menu) are not ok for Celiacs or those with sensitivity to cross contamination. The waitresses were knowledgeable and as soon as I asked about shared oil, told me fried items were not ok for those who were "very sensitive." We ordered the spicy pad Thai, and it initially came out topped with battered fried tofu - thankfully we'd already had the shared fryer conversation, so we sent it back immediately. We were later told by our waitress that they accidentally sent out a non-GF pad Thai, and she thanked us profusely for catching their error. The dish was promptly replaced. No ill effects.

    This place is incredible! They use no dairy in their kitchen and the gluten free menu is the largest I've ever seen. Not to mention the food is really delicious :) Highly recommend!

    First off we had a fantastic lunch here! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about preparing the food and making sure it was entered in as a gf order. They have a dedicated gf menu just ask! We had the Porpia Sod, Pad Ke Mao, & Pad Thai all of them were fantastic and tasty. I would recommend this Thai food highly! I have Celiac and felt very comfortable before and after eating here! I will return!

    Tasty and staff was reasonably forthright. They use the same pan for gluten items but clean it thoroughly. Sounds like there isn't much flour but the sauces have gluten.

    Food wasn't bad but the servers did not seem knowledgeable and it was hard to communicate with them. Did not feel confident about ingredients. Went during lunch so that may have been the difference.

    Absolutely delicious!! Pad Thai with prawns was fabulous and red curry with pork shoulder and kabocha squash was a definite win. Great cocktails too - loved the Sublime: Bombay Sapphire, grapefruit juice and lime wedges. Mmm.
