I had a terrible dining experience here. I called ahead to confirm that they would use clean gloves and clean pans/utensils and they said yes. When we arrived I ordered a gluten free salad and two of the gluten free Cali rolls. I confirmed with the waiter again that they would use clean gloves, clean pans/utensils, and knife/cutting board for the sushi. He then brought out my salad with gluten wontons on top. After I pointed it out he took it back and came back immediately with a salad that didn’t have wontons. At this point, my husband and I said we felt more comfortable just paying the check for what we had received and leaving because I didn’t feel safe to eat anymore. He kept reassuring us and said the manager would watch them make my sushi. We decided to trust him and I started to eat my sushi. Halfway through eating the rolls, I found that the cucumber was black inside the roll. I showed the manager and he was nice about it but I will never eat here again. This means that the manager watched them cut bad cucumber and served it to me. In the end, I had some minor cross contact symptoms but, more importantly, I was lucky that I didn’t eat the bad cucumber or wontons and become severely ill. I don’t trust any of their food procedures for allergies or food safety in general.

First time sushi eater and was very happy to see the plethora of gluten free options available. Online Gluten Free Menu, (accessible through QR code on physical menu), has many options for those eating gluten free. Server was knowledgeable on cross contact and made sure to bring me gluten free soy sauce so I didn’t end up using the soy sauce at the table. No issues or feeling sick afterwards. Great experience!

This place is 100% celiac friendly! I was amazed because the menu had several GF sushi options and the manager came to the table to let us know that they take allergies very seriously and have dedicated equipment for allergies! The service was great and the food was delicious!!! It’s amazing to have a sushi restaurant offering GF! Yum yum sushi!!!! :)

I had a great meal here! They do have a caveat on their menu about food being prepared in a shared kitchen space, but the waiter was attentive, brought us gf soy sauce and a separate menu, marked the order as gf and assured us it would be handled separately, and I did not get sick. The food was all delicious and they had tons of gf options and vegan sushi as well!

One of our favorite restaurants! Lots of GF options. GF food is prepared in a separate spot and always safe. The side salad with carrot ginger dressing, Philadelphia roll, and VLT roll are my go to!

Note: The River Rock Beef should be avoided! The normal marinade has gluten and will make you sick!

Very extensive gf menu! They take allergies very seriously and the waiters (esp the managers) are very knowledgeable. I went with friends and don’t eat sushi and they were able to make me pan seared salmon with white rice and soy sauce that was fantastic! Highly recommend!!

Gluten free menu available, with options across the whole menu - including Nigri and gluten free Wasabi. The server was super familiar with GF, but he was happy to ask and I never felt unsafe.
