I was hesitant because I’m very sensitive to cross contamination, but I ate SO MUCH SUSHI last night and woke up feeling excellent! Great restaurant, very knowledgeable about celiac, and only 2 items on the menu have gluten in them. Even the chicken karaage and tempura are safe (and excellent).

Entire menu is gluten free by default — they actually label what has gluten rather than the other way around. Also very helpful in finding dairy free and soy free options! Sushi is EXCELLENT. Jared was so helpful!!

Incredible experience. Everything was gluten free except buns because the owner had celiac. One of the best experiences I’ve had since diagnosis.

Right when I walked in, I asked the host about their ability to accommodate the needs of people with celiac disease. Without missing a beat, she picked up the menu and showed me the only two unsafe items on the menu, the burger and the vegetable buns. The entire rest of the menu is gluten free! She explained that all of the soy sauce used is gluten free tamari, and they even have gluten free tempura! When I was seated I asked the server a few more questions just to be sure and he assured me that I was safe and that they take gluten-free needs very seriously. I had the eel, the black cod, and a couple of awesome rolls. Everything was delicious, fresh and beautiful. It felt wonderful to eat there without worry.

Without a doubt the most Celtic friendly sushi in Seattle. We were totally blown away that everything was safe but found out this was due to the owner being celiac. Shrimp tempura rolls!?!?

All menu items but a few are gluten free! The tempura and chicken karaage (fried chicken) were tasty. Servers were knowledgeable. The yuzu mochi crunch cake was the amazing too. Will be back!

Amazingly delicious and creative food, and you can feel safe eating here for sure. Our waiter was very comfortable discussing gluten intolerance and told us that only two things on the menu contain gluten: a burger entree (the bun, which can be substituted), and a steamed bun appetizer. The fryer is safe so you can order delicious tempura. ALL sauces they use or prepare for the sushi rolls or other entrees are gluten free. Our server even came back to give us some unique information about the Inari Nigiri (the tofu pocket around a rice roll), which we had ordered. He said at another sushi restaurant where he had worked, the tofu is pre-marinated in a ponzu/soy sauce that contained wheat. He checked with the chef at Bamboo to confirm their Inari is truly gluten free. Wow! Thank you to Bamboo Sushi for doing this - I only wish more Asian restaurants would get on board and source their soy sauce ingredients to eliminate the gluten! You may also be pleasantly surprised here if you are looking for a great vegetarian meal - their vegetarian/vegan rolls are very good, not to mention the veggie tempura.

Excellent sushi and excellent options. Waiter and staff were well informed and had no problem double checking that the fryer was dedicated, etc. The Tempura is gluten free! They only serve tamari sauce and real crab in their rolls. Highly recommend!

No after coming a few times I feel like I can do a real review. Every time we have come it is normally busy and now we just do reservations. The food and it predations are always top notch. All but one food item is gluten free. not many beer options for gf but cocktails and wine. Staff is always friendly, efficient and precise. They also cater to very young toddlers/infants.

Edited August 21st 2020. So it turns out they are using imitation crab. I don't know if that's a covid-19 or if that's an always thing but be careful of the crab. Maybe they will lose the attitude when we ask about gluten-free items now. So disappointed. Celiacs beware!! I'm so sad. I have celiac disease and with that am very limited to what I can eat. Bamboo has always been very good about telling customers about gluten in their food. Usually it's very safe, as they assure us it is. So much so we eat here at least once a week. We happen to eat there last night (June 7th, 2020). It was all I wanted after a 3 day fast. We ordered the rolls we always do, the ones we know are safe. I started getting sick within 30 minutes of finishing dinner. I haven't had this bad of a reaction in a very long time, which means I ingested a considerable amount of gluten. If you don't have any dietary restrictions with gluten please enjoy it, the food is absolutely amazing. If you are Celiac however please really consider whether or not to eat here. ❤

Almost everything is GF, including the tempura, and they have gf tamari on the tables instead of soy sauce! Was so happy to be able to order anything I wanted from a menu without fear of cross contamination!
