My wife is celiac and Low FODMAP. Birthday dinner for 6 people, Baby got Banq set menu, was spot on. Staff fantastic, informative, inclusive and clear on what she could and could not eat. Most things on the set menu were adjusted, and when not possible, amazing options provided. A big tick. Would definitely recommend and return. Hanoi Highball cocktail was fab!

This is the first time I’ve eaten here after being diagnosed with celiac. As soon as I mentioned the word celiac, the staff went out of their way to cross out everything that was not safe! They have policies in place for cross-contamination but were transparent that they can’t guarantee traces. I find this such a green flag for a restaurant that has gluten options! Food was amazing too!!

I'm also a gluten free vegetarian and we couldn't eat here as there weren't any gluten free vegetarian offerings as they deep fry the tofu in the same frier as gluten stuff. If you're not a coeliac and are a veggie then go for it!

Have been here two times, both for birthdays that had the banquet menu. The staff go out of their way to assist you and explain what is coeliac safe and what isn’t. The frier is unfortunately shared, but they give you many alternatives, absolutely love this place. The food also is incredible and such a bargain for the money

Service was fast and friendly, but the dishes I had were a bit spicy for me, especially the lamb kebabs. The betal leaf mince meat dish was lovely, with a bit of spice to it, while the prawn skewers were also heavy on the hot spices. Unfortunately these dishes flared up my reflux issues afterwards. I think they would benefit from a spice level indicator on each of the dishes listed in the menu so patrons can make informed decisions.

The staff were extremely knowledgeable. They marked up a menu for everything GF and “traces” so I didn’t have any contamination concerns. I felt comfortable ordering. The food was spectacular.

Not coeliac friendly. Most gluten free items are deep fried in a shared fryer (including the pork which is baked in the oven then deep fried) Shared fry pans for most of the other items also.
