They have a two page gf menu and ive often ordered pickup online. You do have to note on each item to make it gf though - so they know to leave off krispies and other items with gluten.

They have a nice gluten free menu but not all items are safe. The rice noodles and meat are cooked in the same water as the wheat noodles according to their chef. They use all the same woks but wash them after each use. I got the Thai fried rice with no meat and tested it with my Nima sensor. It came back safe with no gluten!

The Spice has a gluten free menu that includes soups, drunken noodles, curries, fried rice, and various seafood and sauteed meat items. No pad thai or pad see ew, though. Prices are reasonable, food was good, and I did not get sick after eating here. If you have Celiac and you're craving some Thai food, I definitely recommend The Spice in Downtown Ames.

Called before going. Talked with gentleman who told me they use GF ingredients, but don't use new pans/utensils because gluten free doesn't require as much caution as a peanut allergy and people don't need to worry about gluten as much as they do. Obviously, did not eat here.
