first and most important info: kaffir lime is just above ciao bamboo. some people think it's the same restaurant since they are both advertised as thai places and they are in the same tiny building. but it's not. ciao bamboo: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g1066456-d1663140-Reviews-Ciao_Bamboo-Shibuya_Tokyo_Tokyo_Prefecture_Kanto.html additionally, both of these...More

A brilliant Thai restaurant with a great menu- must try prawn red curry and the chicken with cashew nuts! The House wine is more than drinkable. The staff are friendly and the service brilliant. Probably the top end of moderately priced but well worth it!...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

There was no special menu for gluten free. Lots of vegetable dishes but no details on how they are cooked and very limited English.
