    Love the food, but I'm starting to suspect they aren't very thorough in preventing gluten ingredients or cross-contamination. My symptoms aren't always immediate, so it's harder to correlate, but I've started noticing I've felt much worse in the recent weeks after eating here more often. The servers regularly say things like "everything is gluten free", which is simply not true, so it worries me that it's not taken seriously enough.

    I have never been so sick in my life! Several hours after consuming all the gluten symptoms began. I asked the one waiter if the items were gluten and dairy free and he said if the menu says so they were. I asked the other waitress about the drinks, neither could tell me what brand the drinks were so we stuck with water. My gluten sensitive son was sick several hours after eating with his typical gluten sensitive symptoms. I would NEVER eat here again and wouldn't recommend anyone with celiac disease eat here. Maybe it's like "low gluten" food but I'm doubtful because we were all sick and only 2 of us have celiac disease, and the other has gluten sensitivity. That tells me it was probably containing large amounts of gluten. No one could give me an ingredient list and all the packaging is imported from Thailand so not English. Doubtful that other countries follow strict FDA labeling. Also it was kind of gross our table was basically in the pantry area where tons of food is stored.

    This place is Incredible. The food is out of this world: excellent flavor, good sized portions, good prices, and about 95% of the menu is gluten free :) I will be eating here again. (Get the Khao Soi)

    I'm in love with this place. almost everything on the menu is made gluten free. the fresh summer rolls with peanut sauce and pad thai (I sub out the shrimp and get tofu) are my go-to dishes so far.

    Phenomenal restaurant!!! It's authentic Thai street food and then best thai in Portland. Even the 2 items on the menu that aren't gluten free they can make gluten free.

    Haven't been there yet but from Gluten Free Portland Facebook post: Just spoke to the restaurant today. All items but 2 on the dinner menu are gluten-free, and all but 3 items on the lunch menu are gluten-free. "We are an extremely gluten-free friendly restaurant" is what Dave said to me today.
