I ate here twice and was safe eating curry and pad thai

The only complaint is that the food was... not what I expected. Both meals were very different from what I expected.

Good food as always. When they went over gluten free options they indicated almost the entire menu. I would recommend asking follow up questions about whatever dish you end up choosing just in case. They can do a dairy free Thai iced tea with coconut milk!

The curry had flavor and the Thai tea was good. The menu was limited to what I could eat. The spring rolls were inedible. They told me curry was the only GF thing on the menu.

My wife and I love Thai so when we found this place we decided to try it especially after the other reviews. We had the tom kha soup which unfortunately was not as good as we've had before it did not have that coconut milk flavor we've come to expect, it's our favorite soup to get out we always share a bowl. I had the panang currie which was decent and my wife had the pad Thai which again was decent. Our server was knowledgeable about which dishes were safe, all curries the pad Thai were naturally GF other dishes would need to be modified. I didn't realize it until our food came that our server never asked about spicy level now I like it spicy but wifey can't do it fortunately everything came out mild so remember to ask about it beforehand. Price wise it's very reasonable as most Thai places are most dishes are in the $15 range so for a reasonable and safe meal I'd say give it a shot I've just had much better.

The curries are all gluten free and delicious. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. My family aren’t huge Thai food fans and had dishes with gluten and they loved their dishes as well (whole fish and cashew chicken). They loved them and want to return as well.
