    So good! They have a Japanese rice beer that is GF and almost the entire menu is safe for celiacs. The staff was really helpful and kind :)

    Amazing sushi! Great atmosphere, newly renovated. We ate at the bar (recommend), and had a server take our order. They have a rice beer that tastes like a pilsner (gluten free), and a huge sake solution. They use very fresh ingredients, so there are very few "filler" ingredients. (Ex: real crab instead of imitation crab, fresh sticky rice made from high quality grain rice, etc). They even offer GF soy sauce upon request. There is no separate GF menu. Most of the rolls are GF, BUT you should directly ask the cooks behind the counter who are most knowledgeable - one cook told me that the majority of their food is GF, but the server didn't realize one specialty roll that we ordered included gluten and gave it to me by accident! So just be sure to ask the cooks directly. They know exactly what's what. I would absolutely return here (best sushi I've had) and would just talk directly with the cooks before ordering.

    Chef Ryo was amazing! He said the entire menu is GF, except for fried things (the sauces are made with tamari, not soy sauce. Get the chef tasting! So fresh!

    Kuma is a gluten free paradise! The chef prefers the taste of tamari over soy sauce, so the vast majority of the sauces are gluten free. They are very knowledgeable about the ingredients and I felt quite safe to eat here (unfortunately, this is a rare feeling in sushi joints). I was able to do the 8 piece chefs choice and they seasoned each piece uniquely and GF. The waiter marked up a menu for me with all the gluten free offerings as well. I highly recommend checking this place out if you're a fan of sushi because the sushi was on par with Saru and some of my other favorites.
