Last night Amit, my soon-to-be sister-in-law, and I had a delicious meal. We tried a few of the gluten free options and were very impressed. I started with a Lychee Martini, which I’ve never had before. It was not too sweet, luckily, and did not taste like vodka, another plus for me. It made me feel as if I was back in Thailand sitting on a tropical beach.
The fried tofu was light and airy with a delicious, mild chili sauce. The Fresh summer rolls were fresh and served with a peanut dipping sauce.
We shared the Seafood Tom Yum Pad Thai and it was delicious! It was so flavorful yet light and dull of shrimp, mussels and calamari. We were scrapping the plate trying to eat up every last bite.
We were too full to order dessert, but they do offer Mango Sticky Rice that can be made gluten free.
Please note that all dishes are prepared in the same kitchen.
