My absolute FAVORITE restaurant. Found this hidden gem on this app, and I have ZERO regrets. So many gluten free options that taste absolutely delicious. The Pad Thai is 10 stars out of 5 - there are days I dream about it and the peanut sauce. Always get EXTRA peanut sauce it’s so good you want to drink it alone and they give you giant side option servings. The curries don’t come with rice but it’s only $2.00 and definitely enough to for at least two people or four small children. The fresh rolls with the gf sauce are 7 out of 5 stars. The Pad Orange Sauce is 8 out of 5 stars (it has real orange slices!!). The Pas Graprau (Basil) is 8 out of 5 stars. The sweet sticky rice is 10 out of 5 stars. The only thing I’ve tried and didn’t like is the sweet sticky rice with mango because the mango when I tried it was too firm. Everything else is so amazing that whenever I’m in town I make it a point to come here. The prices are reasonable, the customer service is amazing, and they actually honor their spiciness levels which I appreciate (a 2 star spice level is ACTUALLY 2 stars and not a fiery hot 5 making you question how spicy you really can eat). Authentic and awesome - give it a try! PS. I have a very sensitive gluten allergy and I have never had any reaction to the gf items I have gotten from here for the past year (6x I’ve been here)!

I definitely ate my full here! Almost everything on the menu is gluten free. I felt very comfortable asking questions. Large portions. I had the Drunken Noodles with beef. Tasty but needed more salt. They're now on uber eats too! Give it a go!

Unfortunately I was glutened after eating here. I was very excited to read all the good reviews, it is hard to find celiac safe restaurants. The place was little but nice. The entire menu apart from one item was marked gluten free. I had the pad thai, which tasted very good, and was a large portion. But about an hour after eating I started feeling very nauseous, By the time another hour had gone by I had all the symptoms of being glutened, which then lasted a few days.

Eaten here more times than I can count and never gotten sick or anything. The food is always good and you get rather large serving sizes too. The mango or family fried rice is a favorite at my house.

I explained I came because I saw most meals were gluten free. The server immediately said they were told me what wasn’t, etc. Ordered, she brought me soup, assuring me it was gf before I asked. Meal was great and I would go back. I am Celiac and had no reaction.

I have been here many many times with no problems. Some of the food is very good: crispy duck, garlic pepper, cashew nut, ginger. The pad Thai and fried rice are average.

Delicious food and excellent service!They have no problems doing gf, in fact most of the menu says “gluten free” next to the item. I’ve never gotten sick and I’ve eaten here at least 10 times. Their Phad Thai is wonderful and I also recommend the Rama Chicken.

My wife is super sensitive to gluten, so it's a little tricky ordering Asian food with sauces. But this place is awesome! All gluten-free options are clearly marked in their menu, and there is a lot of choices. I love the online ordering, and our order has always been waiting for me when I get there (I love about 3 miles away).

Service was great, lots options, food was mostly good. We got a few things and liked the Massumum (sp?) curry the best. The herbal chicken tasted and smelled like feet. But, otherwise, the meal was great and neither of us had any kind of reactions. Would definitely return.

Everything is clearly marked on the menu and the food is delicious. The portions are huge, too, and the number of gluten-free options is a little intimidating.

I love Peanut Sauce Thai. I'm very sensitive to gluten (not celiac) and often get sick after eating from gluten free Thai restaurants. Not Peanut Sauce though! The quality and service is equally amazing. I make the drive from Puyallup to South Tacoma for this food!

I ordered the pad see ewe, asked that it be made gluten free, and was told it is always made gluten free. Next day my tummy was a mess. I know all of their soy sauces are gluten free but I wonder about their oyster sauce or fish sauce which is commonly used in pad see ewe.

Outstanding, safe meal -- so great! Wonderful hostess told us that everything was available GF except for fried items. Their 3 soy sauces (see photo) they cook with are GF and she said they are available at most Korean markets. Can't wait to get home and buy them! I also can share the photos with restaurants to see if they use this brand which is safe. I ordered Pad See Ewe with chicken which was so good! My daughter ordered the Drunken Noodles which she said was delicious. We also had the Fresh Rolls for an appetizer. They were beautiful and tasted great as well. The peanut sauce for dipping was the best. Really lovely people working there, eager to help. Fast service as we were exhausted and wanted to hurry and we got tons of food. Leftovers tomorrow:0). This place is a real gem!!!

The staff of Peanut Sauce is friendly and knowledgeable regarding the ingredients of each dish; they quickly suggest modifications to keep a menu item safe for gluten free eating. Service has been prompt and food quality excellent each time we've stopped here for dinner.

A little on the slow side. People came in after us got their food first and left before we ever got our meal. When it finally came it was good. My daughter with food allergies liked her fried rice. Then back to waiting forever for my bill and doggy bags. Oh and no free refills on drinks :(

The waitress was very knowledgable about g-free. She said they use only g-free soy sauce and noodles in kitchen. I ate a VERY tasty Pad See Ew with tofu. My husband doesn't need to eat g-free, but his Pad Thai was also very good. I highly recommend this restaurant. I would go back tomorrow, except we're on a road trip and I'll be in Oregon tomorrow!
