I didn’t get sick but the food and service is very average. I was tipped off by a prior review about confusing labeling which was very helpful (you have to specify that your order is GF or it won’t be). They also have meatless options and dairy free. There are peanuts in many dishes if you have but allergies. I got the pineapple fried rice which I would not recommend. There were no vegetables in it, which was odd (like just rice, pineapple, egg, and onion. Would not recommend). My non-celiac husband ordered chili basil with chicken and rice gluten free so we could share our food, and his food was better than mine. The restaurant is BYOB, and it’s open late. Our wait time was 45 minutes to get a table, but they never called us at 45 minutes so we went inside at 50 and they said they had a table waiting for us (but still had not called to tell us).
If you’re going out to eat during the day, I would recommend trying elsewhere if you have celiac and want good food/service. If this was a restaurant I went to in my hometown, I would have not gone in the first place based on prior reviews but there are not many places open late or that have GF options. I didn’t get sick, but I was overall disappointed with my meal and with the service hence the 3/5 stars.
Their labeling system is dysfunctional. You have to specifically request for gluten free in advance while ordering, even if these food items are labeled on the menu with “GF”.
Most dishes labeled as “GF” on the menu are actually *default* cooked with gluten, unless specifically requested otherwise, which is completely misleading. What’s the point of labeling “GF” on a menu if the customer has to vigilantly request for it to be cooked GF?? Menu should say “can be made gluten free, upon order”. Not “GF”
Our waitress somehow didn’t catch my paranoid questioning about GF and ordered some of our foods (labeled GF) with default gluten. :(
I’m not celiac but my boyfriend is. His mom and myself ordered dishes that we thought were actually gluten free; and we were cross contaminating forks and offering him to try our dishes. This was super frustrating to discover their inept labeling system only after already eating/paying. Wait staff was not good about informing us, despite my paranoid questioning about gluten.
Excellent Pad Thai. Everything on the menu is clearly marked gluten free and vegan but the kitchen is small so there is a strong possibility of cross contamination even though they marked our stuff. (I get sick at the slightest cross contamination and didn't experience any negative effects after eating here.)
Really good Pad Thai, panang curry and Pad See Mao. Everything on the menu is clearly marked gluten free and vegan but the kitchen is small so there is a strong possibility of cross contamination even though they marked our stuff
GF marked on the menu. Knowledgeable staff, solid food.
