Thai Express
Multiple locations:
  • Edmonton City Centre
  • Londonderry Mall
  • Southgate Centre
  • Kingsway Garden Mall

Venturing off to Kingsway one weekend afternoon we wanted to try something new.  Food court options can sometimes be limiting when trying to find gluten free friendly restaurants or menu options.  We decided to look up Thai Express which is found in several food courts in Edmonton.

This is what we found by contacting Line Thongvan, Supervisor at head offices in Quebec:
  • The curries are all gluten free
  • There is a vegetarian sauce that is gluten free that can be had with the following items:
    • Stir Fry (no peanut sauce)
    • Pad Thai
Line explained when ordering you should ask something like "May I have a Pad Thai chicken with the vegetarian sauce?"  Line also told us that they are in the process of finding new ingredients for more gluten free meals.

As always restaurants are unable to guarantee no cross contamination so ask questions of your servers and ask them to use clean utensils to try and reduce the chance of cross contamination.

We have tried the green and yellow curry dishes which have a nice kick and taste great.

If you have any questions, click here to visit the Thai Express website and use their contact form.  It took a while, but Thai Express was good at responding to my question.

  1. That's discouraging... I've had their "chicken noodle soup" many times (yum!) having been given the impression that it was gluten free :(

  3. After researching their menu online, I recently tried ordering the Pad Thai at Kingsway and they told me they don't carry the vegetarian sauce. Very discouraging but I will definitely try again. Thanks for the great info!

  4. Yes, everytime I've gone to Southgate and asked for the vegetarian sauce they also say they don't carry it. I don't know if its just the front staff don't understand or if they actually don't have it, it's too bad really!
