Every knowledgeable staff. Our waitress made suggestions and cautions. I ordered the Black Pearl Tuna Poke which is not gluten free because of the ponzu sauce and crispy noodles, which I opted to just leave off, but the chef actually created a special alternative sauce for me and personally brought it to my table.

Good, I ordered the California roll and the waitress said it wasn’t gluten free, which was a good save. I really enjoyed the sushi, very fresh. They have GF soy sauce as well if you ask

I ordered online and wrote in the instructions “gluten allergy, no soy sauce or crab substitute” and when the host gave me my food she made sure to tell me everything that they did to make sure! She also put gluten free soy sauce on the side for me and put another sushi topping on the side because she was not 100% on the ingredients. I was very pleased to have some good gluten free sushi!

Poor service. Waited more than 10 min for water. Received my drink and miso soup AFTER my sushi because I had to remind them. Pad Thai was quite bland and we were charged extra to put more sauce on it.

You need to know your sushi to eat here, but excellent. I had a philly roll, and they modified my California roll with real crab. They have gf soy sauce. FYI...spicy mayo has regular soy sauce.

Staff not very helpful. Most sushi was not GF or supposedly couldn’t be modified, and I was urged to order salmon and avocado roll. They do have GF soy sauce. Fruit flies everywhere around our table. Poke bowl didn’t have much fish. Disappointing and will not go back, esp with so many amazing places to dine in the area.

Thank you Lori for the post chose this location because of it!

This place was very friendly, had a large bottle of GF Soy Sauce at the server station and did a good job of pointing us towards GF choices. Others in the party were not GF and they separated the rolls onto different platters for us.

Not only do they have gluten free soy sauce but the hostess and waitress both knew what other menu items had hidden gluten. In addition to many of the sushi/maki there are other dishes to choose from. We had Pad Thai and Fried Rice in addition to salmon and tuna maki.
