**Update**

This place used to be almost completely Gluten-Free (just the Krab and Soy Sauce Packets), but as of now... that has changed. Thanks to the wonderful staff for let me know that they changed management, and the new boss is ordering from different sources. Because of this their Spicy Mayo is no longer Gluten Free, and that may only be the start of their decline. They also used to allow the purchase of individual scoops, but now they only allow a 4 scoop minimum, at $4 more than you would pay for the same amount of scoops alongside a bowl. (The 2 scoop bowl is $14.50, individual scoops are $2.50, and 4 scoops is $14). The numbers don't add up. I'm really bummed. This has been my favorite Poke place for a while, but I'm losing faith in it's commitment to keeping people like me safe. This is all on the buyer, and high level management. The staff has always been friendly and professional. ---------------------------------- I started coming here a little over 2 years ago. I was informed by both the employees, and the management that all of the sauces were made using gluten-free soy sauce. The only thing in the house that is not gluten-free, is their artificial Krab/Surimi and the individual soy sauce packets.

Since this discovery, I've eaten here many times, and have never had a adverse reaction. That includes eating their eel musubi, with a oyster sauce. Sooooo good.

I was officially diagnosed celiac in 2015.

The server who helped me was a little too flippant with her claims of "most things should be gluten-free" or "all sauces are gluten-free", etc. She seemed to know which things were safe but didn't understand why. I trusted her somewhat but relied on my instincts when building my meal. I did not have any adverse reactions!

EDIT 09/22/18: I was informed by staff that this restaurant no longer uses gluten free soy sauce, making all sauces unsafe for celiacs. Do not go here.

Notes: I went to this location last week and they have scratched out GF on all their sauces! The person I spoke with also let me know that they really couldn’t be sure about cross-contamination. Unfortunately this place is off the list for me!

They employees had no idea what gluten was or what I could safely eat. They didn’t have a gluten free menu and said the only menu item I could safely consume was sesame oil…. We left and won’t be returning!

Went in here because of all of the good celiac reviews and staff was absolutely clueless about gluten. Really disappointed. Decided to take our business elsewhere.

Many more GF sauces than other poke restaurants near by. Can order the musubi rolls without sauce. Nice selection of toppings as well.
