The food is so good here. Love the authenticity of the Raman. They had gluten free noodles!!! You just have to order the vegetable broth and ask for the GF noodles. Waitress said they deal with allergies all the time. The Shushi was also gluten free depending on what you got. They were very flexible.

I sent them a message 3 months ago and never heard back. I like to check ahead before trying a new place if I can, because it is pretty deflating to go into a restaurant you think is safe and end up only being able to order a salad. If I ever hear back, I'll give it a try! Otherwise, I don't know if I can trust it.

I’ve eaten here twice with no issue. While they didn’t hand me a dedicated gluten free menu, both servers I worked with were very aware of what gluten free customers could safely eat, how to modify dishes to be safe, and that the cook staff was very aware. I was told that the sushi chef and one other cook staff actually had Celiac. There are multiple appetizers and small plates that are GF, and they can customize the ramen bowls to be GF (skip the noodles, rice on the side, go for the veggie broth). I left very full both times and was very pleased. Karai, keep it up!

Celiac friendly?
