Busaba Eathai - part 2

Chicken Satay and Fishcakes, both GF
I had visited Busaba Eathai earlier in the year, and, although I loved the food, and I had a brilliant service from the staff, there was a bit of confusion regarding what was gluten free.

So, as I was around Kingston recently, I decided to go back, dreaming of their lovely Pad Thai...

I was very pleasantly surprised to see that they have improved their menu, and now all the gluten-free and vegetarian options are marked clearly on it. That was fantastic! I still thought it would be wise to highlight it with our server, just to ensure the kitchen were aware of it, but overall, I thought it was a brilliant improvement and one that will encourage me to visit more often ;)

Pad Thai GF
What did I have?
Well, the Pad Thai obviously, and I shared with my friend the two starters that are gluten-free, chicken satay and fishcakes, and I thought they were both good.

Also I checked the sauces on the table. Obviously the soy sauce is out of bounds,but the chilli sauce and fish sauce have no gluten containing ingredients.

There are several gluten free options on this menu: two starters, two wok noodle dishes, four curries, and four sides (menu available online).

Overall, I love the location in Kingston riverside, great to go for a walk along the river afterwards. I enjoyed the food and I was not unwell at all.
I would be very happy to recommend Busaba Eathai to any gluten-free eaters.
