This is the first time I've been able to have a California Roll because they use real crab. However, it was pricy and flavors weren't stellar. Service was also super slow and we were one of four parties, so it wasn't very busy.

The staff was extremely knowledgeable and very receptive to helping keep my celiac family safe. They even called us (making it a total of three phone calls) to make sure that everything was set up well, and they were very accommodating. They said they’d clean the area and use completely new equipment.

My only concern (and reason I rated a 4) is that it seems that the edamame was likely boiled in cross contaminated water and so it Nima tested positive, but when I then spoke to the restaurant, they apologized and said they would let the chef know to prevent it in the future.

The staff were amazing and helpful! They all knew what was Gluten free and what was not Gluten free! The menu was marked so you could know what was gluten free or vegan! But the best part was the food! So delicious and filling! Very good restaurant!

My family enjoyed their meals, and they have GF options marked on their menu. but I tested a piece of vegetable with the Nima sensor and it came back with Gluten found so I don’t think it’s safe for Celiacs.

Main menu has a symbol for all the items that can be made gluten free. Our server seemed both very concerned and very knowledgeable about celiac protocol. Had us place our order first separately for all our strictly gf items that needed cross contamination sensitive preparation. Our son said he felt great afterwards (so we don’t think he got glutened). Sushi chefs were smiley and friendly and we had a good level of confidence in the meal.

Pretty good sushi. This was our first trip here. We tried a couple rolls and the seafood noodles. Both were fine. They have several gluten/wheat-free menu options. I didn't ask questions about cross contamination though.
