There’s not a lot of options on the menu, especially because a lot of their fish is kept in a brine that contains gluten. However the server was super accommodating and helped me navigate what I could eat that was gluten free.

They seemed to understand celiacs and were very accommodating. I’m celiac and didn’t get sick. Yummy gluten free mochi for dessert.

I called tonight to ask about GF, they said they only have like 2 things on the menu that are GF. If I wanted more GF choices to go to another restaurant. They denied ever doing what any of the other three reviews mentioned. I'm sure the reviewers didn't make that up haha, so clearly I was speaking to someone who was not GF friendly. Anyway just wanted to update what I found out tonight, for others that may be excited to have sushi and then learn that this restaurant doesn't sound like it is as accommodating as it once was.

They were accommodating. Sushi rice and spicy mayo are not gluten free, but they have gluten free rice for an extra charge. I had the spicy tuna minus the spicy mayo. They also have gluten free soy sauce upon request. They allowed me to bring my own spicy mayo. I have celiac, but am not too sensitive; someone else may have a different experience. Overall, have always loved this place, pre & post diagnosis.

Good food. Not the most attentive regarding food allergies. I got the mixed green salad, and they substituted the ponzu dressing with a nice lemony dressing, but they forgot to make it without fried wontons on top. The waiter at least apologized. Also, they were out of the gluten free soy sauce. At least they try, sort of...

After being very, very clear about my allergy, I was still served sushi with ponzu sauce which has gluten! "Oops, sorry." the waitress said. Really? Last visit for me.

Some of the best sushi I have eaten in my life! Especially as a celiac staff was friendly knowledgeable and accommodating! I've been to Japan and this comes very very close. Pure enjoyment all around and decent prices.

Incredible service . They have a separate GF menu. Apparently the gluten free menu varies by location so some of my favorites were missing, but the options were plenty & delicious! We'll be back!

I called the day before and explained that I was a celiac and had heard they could cater to gluten free....he said most sauces were out but after being told about a few rolls they could do for me I was sold. when I got there, he greeted me personally by name and told me that they had made a special gluten free ponzu sauce for me! needless to day, I was ecstatic. It was also really nice to listen to the chef explain my problems to the woman at the bar while he changed gloves :)

I was SOOO glad to have found this place because my usual favorite gluten free sushi place is all the way down in manhattan beach and I live in the valley, so it's quite a hike. I am also extremely sensitive to gluten and I was quite impressed to see that I had no symptoms after I ate here!It's great to have such a delicious sushi place which can pretty much make anything on the menu Gluten Free(GF). They have GF soy sauce too. The food is definitely worth it and would highly recommend for sushi lovers!! We ordered the Spicy Tuna w/Popcorn Shrimp Tempura Roll (I am NOT a fan of shrimp AT ALL, but this Roll just blew me away! My new favorite!). I highly recommend the crispy tuna appetizer as well! If you stick to items on the menu, the prices are pretty good. If you order something not on the menu at the bar or get something custom made, prices can be a bit high in my opinion. After we got our bill, we realized for next time to just order off the menu.***THIS LOCATION IS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT GLUTEN INTOLERANCE! They told me that most of the sauces contained gluten even in the Popcorn Shrimp Tempura Roll, but they were however able to make me the rolls on the menu without the sauce for me.

They were however able to make me the rolls on the menu without the sauce at the other location. In terms of gluten awareness, this location was not as great as some of the others. If you are gluten intolerant, make sure you have your waiter ask the chef if the sauce has gluten! IF not for that, I would have given it 5 stars! ***
