staff understands gf needs!
I had a surprisingly good experience here. They immediately knew that I could not have salad dressing and they had gluten-free tamari that the hibachi chef used for everybody's meal, so as to not cross contaminate my food.
I was really excited to come here and have some gf sushi. Ordering was next to impossible! I just tried to ask what I could order and I kept being told to avoid sauce, fried food, this, that and everything else. I asked for a gf recommendation and I got some hemming and hawing and more encouragement to avoid certain things. When I asked about specific items I kept being told they wouldn't work. Finally I just went with something unappealing because I figured with only chicken and lemon it would be safe. staff does seem knowledgable about contamination, but it would be nice if it was easier to order. extremely frustrating experiance.
Very willing to make adjustments for someone who can't eat gluten, but cross-contamination is likely as everything is cooked on the same grill. Things to watch out for: breaded onions in the soup, soy sauce in the fried rice, other sauces, as well as the salad dressing (ask for oil/vinegar). Make sure to let your chef know you're gluten-free.
Our server was unhelpful about gf recommendations, but we had the manager come over and he gave me the rundown on what was safe. My meal was prepared on a separate grill in the back using gf soy sauce. The dipping sauces all have gluten, as does the onion soup (can be prepared w/o the glutenous fried onions).
Food was good. They were informed about allergies. Delicious. Service was awful. Took forever to get served.
I have gotten sick EVERY time I have ate there no matter how many times I tell them that I'm gluten free or how much they seem to care. 3 strikes and they are out. I've even skipped birthday parties and other big events because I will never ever step foot in one again. Just thinking about this place makes me feel sick.
Very informed and cooked my meal first with gluten free soy sauce. Wonderful!
