Someone at the October meeting of the Fine Grind GF Club (Little Falls, NJ) mentioned that the Bangkok Kitchen (391 Bloomfield Avenue, Caldwell, NJ) had a GF menu. I recently met one of my cousins for dinner there and it was great! I had looked up their menu online and all but about four items were flagged as gluten free.

Most Thai dishes tend to be naturally gluten free (and like most asian cuisine, tend to be DF as well). The owner has Celiac disease and has modified most of those that aren’t naturally GF to be GF as well. Please note: make sure you mention you need a gluten free dish when ordering as some items flagged as GF on the online menu aren’t normally prepared GF but rather are modified when you order them that way.
Bangkok Kitchen is a store front restaurant with Thai décor. The in-store menu does not list the GF items (although everything except the dumplings, spring rolls, and chicken wings can be made GF). I had the Ka Tiem (chicken sautéed with cilantro garlic sauce and vegetables) as you can see at the right. The offline menu flags the spicy items by changing the first letter in the item to red. My cousin had the Masamun Beef and said the spice level was fine (not mild but not too spicy either).

The restaurant is BYOB and in addition has a nice selection of Vegetarian/Vegan dishes as well. With such a wide-ranging Gluten Free menu I will certainly be going back!
