    Great food, but limited menu for GF. Ordered veggie roll, vegetable fried rice, and wok tossed vegetables with tofu. Huge portions!

    I had sushi with GF tamari and they confirmed the wasabi is GF. We sat at the bar cause we didn't have a reservation so it would have been hours to wait. Once I told the bartender I am celiac, he assured me they were careful, and he was watching out for me as another staff member took my coconut creme brule (amazing!) order but didn't flag it as GF, but the bartender noticed and changed the order and told me he had done so. Really nice atmosphere, live music. ALittle bit difficult to find, it is at the Hyatt, if you are not a guest park in the public beach parking (available only till 8pm) and walk to the end of the road to the Hyatt and Japengos is out behind, so it takes a little looking to find.

    Generally good about gluten free and they have a nice GF menu. They understand cross-contamination and what celiac is. However, waitress brought out non-GF soy sauce for us after we states that there were two celiacs at the table. We only found out it wasn't tamari because we confirmed a suspicion with her before using. She was mortified (and busy), but it still happened. Also, busser served my celiac dad my non-celiac husband's plate of ribs and said they were gluten free (they definitely were not--luckily we knew this). Overall, good about GF but not as great as other reviews state and other restaurants in Maui are. You'd most likely be okay, but there are better GF restaurants. Otherwise, food and service were good, but overrated.

    An absolute must for anyone celiac visiting Maui! The sushi is fresh and super tasty. The entire staff is very knowledgeable about gluten-free issues. The restaurant has a dedicated gluten-free menu including sushi rolls (both of which I ordered) and they were delicious. They have Tamari soy sauce which is gluten free and delicious. I did not however ask whether the wasabi was made with corn starch or wheat starch so if you are a wasabi eater make sure to check. This place has hands down the best gluten free dessert, coconut creme brûlée! After four days of having sherbet as the only dessert option I was pleasantly surprised to have such a fantastic option! I highly recommend!

    The best gluten free meal I had all of Hawaii! The service is fast and everyone there is so nice. We flew in late that day and the servers did everything they could just so we could eat there. The gluten free dessert is by far the best gluten free dessert I have ever had since finding out I had celiacs. To top it off, they even have gluten free soy sauce. This is by far the best place to dine for gluten free illnesses!

    This is a pan-fusion place that is perfect for a romantic meal. They have a great GF menu with a *lot* of selection. We had sushi (and they brought out GF tamari for me), and then I had an AMAZING GF seafood noodle soup. One of my favorite places to eat in Maui!
