Great selection of gluten free offerings. But no gluten free fryer. Do not know if it is celiac friendly or not. My three star rating came from the food and the no gf fryer. Its basically more vietnamese style cooking....basically grilled meat and noodles. The chicken pad thai was nothing like the chicekn pad thai Ive had at other places. It had no sauce and didnt resemble chicken pad thai flavor ive had other places. So if youre in that area and crave vietnamese style asian food...go for it. Its just not for me. Basically there seemed to be nothing here you couldnt get at any other vietnamese style restaurant. The hostess did think vegan was somehow gluten free. So there is that. But the waiter seemed to kmow about it ok.

Their menu indicates that many of their items can be made gluten free, however there is no evidence of precautions taken for celiacs. I informed my waitress of my condition and she seemed aware of the severity of celiac yet did not explain any accommodations the restaurant would take for me. Unfortunately it appears whatever was in my food ended up containing gluten (or at a minimum was cross contaminated). I am a recently diagnosed celiac and used to love this restaurant before my diagnosis. I am willing to try again but I recommend proceeding with caution and avoiding items that the chefs could more easily use a gluten-containing item in by mistake.

Staff extremely knowledgeable on serving celiacs. One of my go-to spots for lunch as I love Thai food — their yellow curry is amazing! Eaten here at least 20 times in 2018, and have never been exposed to gluten.
