    I love this place. Plenty of their offerings aren't GF, and they have cross contamination for a lot of dishes, BUT their curries are made individually in a separate pan. I've been getting them for years and they're always celiac safe. Just don't get the tofu (it's fried in a shared fryer). Otherwise the curries, with meat or "no meat", are delicious.

    CELIAC BEWARE: The menus once had GF written by the majority of items, but someone has put White-Out on the menus beside almost all of the items. Maybe four items left and all curry dishes were no longer GF. I asked the waitress about this and she advised there has been some cultural differences about what gluten means. I have no idea what that means and did not stay and risk it. There were also some language barriers that may have contributed to misunderstanding about gluten. This seemed very scary to me and we did not eat there due to my gluten sensitivity being high and traveling away from home.

    Clearly marked gluten free options--and lots of them! Staff is very helpful and kind. Fast service and delicious food. Best (and really only) restaurant on the corner that has celiac friendly options other than salads! Highly recommend!

    Best spot for GF lunch on the corner. Tons of options for all courses, all very clearly marked on the (dinner) menu. Staff knowledgeable and friendly, with the owners always around if you have questions about the menu.

    Staff is friendly to folks with gluten allergies. The menu has a good variety of choices--spicy or not, veggie or not. My favorite dishes are Tamarind Chicken or Tofu over veggies and brown rice (I've had both) and Pad Thai ( choice of tofu, chicken, or shrimp for extra). Both delicious. Also lemon tofu soup with veggies was great (clean) and pineapple rice was okay. They will adjust a dish to your desired level of spice. Love Lemongrass!

    Safe if you have Celiac Disease, particularly the curries, which are made at a separate prep station from fried, battered dishes. No gluten in fish sauce, and manager is knowledgeable, welcoming, and open to questions.

    We came in 15 minutes before closing but they were very welcoming. Menu is marked for GF, vegetarian and vegan. Pretty good Thai food.
