I was really excited to try this place after the great reviews from celiacs. It was concerning though, as soon as we got there. I explained my celiac disease to our (very young) waiter who had no idea what gluten is. I asked him to get the manager - she came over and said, oh, don’t worry - we can leave the sesame seeds off of everything. I had to explain that sesame seeds are not gluten. It’s wheat, rye and barley. Should have left then but she assured me almost everything was GF and they would be careful.

First time I’ve gotten CC at a restaurant this year. Sick all night, you know the drill. Needless to say, I will not be going back and recommend you proceed with caution here.

The food is very good. All of the marinades and sauces are gluten free. The menu is clearly marked for gluten free items. A good part of the menu is safe. We have been here several times and will go back again.

The food is DELICIOUS every time! I have pretty severe celiac, and I didn’t get any reaction. You cook your own entrees on the table’s grill, but they are cleaned thoroughly in between uses. The menu is very clearly marked for what is and isn’t gluten free, and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful with allergies. Most of their menu is gluten free, but if someone you’re with orders a gluten-containing food item, just be sure to cook your entree before they do and you’ll be fine! I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!

We explicitly told the server of my celiac gluten allergy and he assured me that all the sauces and marinades were gluten free. He then brought soup and salad to the table, which I proceeded to eat, and thought to double check. The manger came over and said that the soup, salad and rice dish I ordered were not gluten free! Apparently we had a “newer” server. Ask for the manager next time you go there to make sure! Other than that, the gluten free food was tasty but unfortunately I got sick.

Staff is knowledgeable/can walk you through the process. Immediately asked the table if there were any allergies. Entire menu is clearly marked with GF options. All bbq sauces are delicious and gluten free. Plenty of options and 100% safe/clean if everyone in your group orders gluten free items for the grill

We had a wonderful meal at Gyu-Kaku. Highly recommended!

It’s a grill-your-own type restaurant, and they are very celiac and allergy aware. Almost all of their sauces and marinades are gluten free, and everything is clearly labeled on the menu. Most of the menu is gluten free.

The staff were very knowledgeable, and there was no trouble making modifications. We were also with someone who had a shrimp allergy. They asked questions such as whether cc/touching was okay. They also had no trouble modifying one of the set combos, and made good suggestions for what to switch to instead.

The food was excellent! A really delicious meal. We will definitely be back!

Most of the menu is Gluten Free and to make it even better most of the Sauces are also GF (Soy, Ponzu, etc). I have eaten here multiple times and never had a reaction.
