    Yummy food safe for celiacs. I only wish they had more vegetarian options.

    Not celiac safe! The gluten free menu options are made in the same fryer resulting in significant cross contamination. In other words, not gluten free. Only after getting exposed to gluten did the chef tell us the GF items are NOT actually gluten free and we should avoid most of them. If you must dine at the Sushi Lounge don’t count on the GF menu. Advise them of your allergy and select carefully from the GF menu. You will also need to tell them to change the board, gloves, and knife because they use the same utensils for all gluten dishes.

    No dedicated fryer as server was very knowledgeable. After a bad experience elsewhere the night before we had an excellent lunch and my wife who is celiac had no problems. I would highly recommend them for sushi.

    Found this restaurant with the app and decided to give it a try. It's not easy to find a reliable GF sushi place. We were not disappointed. The server appeared well informed about GF needs and understood cross contamination issues. They do not have a dedicated frier, so fried items are not safe for Celiac even though they still appear on the GF menu. However, the server explained to me that they can either make substitutions or grill instead of frying. The food was delicious, the portions were generous, and the prices are very reasonable. My daughter was so happy - it's been years since she was able to have sushi.

    Worth the drive. I was craving sushi and hadn't been able to eat it since being diagnosed with celiac disease. They provided a separate GF menu. I knew from previous reviews that they do not have a dedicated fryer. This is important, because ~80% of the sushi rolls offered on the GF menu include shrimp rolled in cornstarch and fried in the shared fryer. I had a Rainbow and Tsunami roll, both of which were delicious and didn't contain fried shrimp. The ponzu sauce (broth?) they made from scratch GF just for me. Everything was DELICIOUS. Note: Cannot use Happy Hour prices (1/2 off) for GF sushi. They prepared my food on a separate cutting board and provided tamari sauce. Our server was Corey... he was knowledgeable and did a great job with my GF needs. One more thing: I have celiac disease and I'm also a dietitian, so I'm very careful. I did not get sick after eating here.

    GF menu available but no dedicated fryer - everything else however they are very careful with cross contamination and gf rolls are specially marked. Just make sure to mention to the server if you're diagnosed celiac.

    They have a large menu. I have eaten there 2 times. The first time no issues, but the second time something got me. I think maybe it was one of the sauces that they serve along with it, but I'm not sure.

    The prices were high for the environment. Sushi was okay, but not exceptional. The restaurant was crowded with little room between tables. Separate GF menu, NO dedicated fryer. Do not order rolls with anything fried. Had GF Tamari.

    Sushi was ok. The options for Gluten free were limited and a little expensive. I may try them again but expectations are lowered. Waitress clearly wasn't trained on Gluten allergies and was guessing on some items.
