    New food truck located on Pearl Harbor/Hickam in the BX parking lot. I had Pad See Ew and my wife had the Prad Na curry and both were delicious. It was some of the best Thai I've had and, surprisingly gluten-free (GF) friendly. While I'm no expert on Thai food, my wife and I've developed a taste over the years for the basics like Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, and the various curries. This was some of the best Thai I've ever had, and I highly recommend checking this place out.Additionally, they do take out, take phone orders, and they're open until 6, six days a week (in contrast to the other food trucks). The rest of this review will deal with gluten free stuff, so if that's not for you, feel free to tune out, but for what it's worth, this place would have been 5 stars even without the GF considerations.I'm a diagnosed celiac so I had largely given up on Asian foods because of the pervasive presence of soy sauce (cue the sad violin music), but was able to catch this food truck at a time when there was no line and spend some time chatting with the cashier. Turns out they use GF soy sauce in their recipes (and the label clearly says so) so we (me and my daughter, also a celiac) were able to enjoy the food without issue.Celiacs beware, however, because I got the impression they had no idea their brand of soy sauce was GF and it clearly was not a calculated decision on their part. The girl didn't even notice the GF marking on the label until I pointed it out. Moreover, the soy sauce they had out for customer consumption with the condiments was not GF, so I'd say proceed with caution and let the girl know if you're trying to go gluten free. I also took a look at the fish sauce, and oyster sauce they had on hand, and it had no alarming ingredients.I was able to educate the cashier a bit on it today and she was very receptive so I hope they'll stick with their current ingredients. I also encouraged them to put it on their sign somewhere because there are more and more customers like me these days that will flock to places they can eat safely.Bottom line: Excellent food and reasonably safe for celiacs provided you proceed at your own risk. UPDATE: just ate there again and their fish sauce is NOT GF. That made the pad Thai off limits... Oh well.
