Not celiac

Overall Rating


My partner got the pad thai at the recommendation from the waiter, who seemed to know quite a bit. That seemed fine - it tasted good, no problems. We didn't ask the waiter about dessert, but ordered the mango and sticky rice. My partner was almost instantly sick somehow from the coconut, mango, and rice dish. We did ask for four plates and the waiter didn't comment about any wheat in that dessert. So maybe we should have asked, but it's also a very strange dish to have wheat in. (Side note that if anyone gets sick from flashing lights, the fans make lights flash on the floor far more than anywhere else I've been. We also had to ask the waiter to turn off another flashing sign.)

Extremely helpful staff talked us through everything, from the type of soy sauce to the cleaning strategies for pots and pans. And the food was excellent. We will certainly be back!

This is where you go for GREAT Thai food! Fresh, perfectly seasoned food. My date had Homak Talay and the seafood was fresh and the young coconut was heavenly. I got the Pad Thai and Tom Kha Kaong soup which were both Gluten free and could not stop oooing and aaahhing. I have celiac and they were SO helpful providing many choices. The coconut ice cream is really good too.
