We were regulars before I went gluten free and it is wonderful to know we can still eat here! I used to stick with just thai but the owner Erk can make amazing gluten free sushi and has started training the other sushi chefs. So good!! Note: if you get sushi, take your own soy sauce.
— No gluten-free information on the menu
This place is definitely Celiac friendly but only if the owner makes the food. His name is Erk, ask for him and tell him you have Celiac Disease and he will make sure all of your sushi is gluten free. It will cost a little more but you get what you pay for. Also he uses real crab since that's GF. My now 13 year old daughter has been dealing with CD for 11 years now she can safely rat here with complete confidence since she loves sushi.
My first time to this Resturant after finding out I have a HIGH Wheat only allergy. (Not Celiac Disease) The server Girl was wonderful and VERY courteous to me. She made me feel very comfortable and offered to explain in detail about each Curry Menu item that contained NO Wheat. I chose the Red Curry Meal with Chicken. I have had NO reaction at all! Sushi has Rice Vinegar she explained to me, and that it contains wheat. Although I’m SO sad about not being able to eat their sushi anymore, I was very satisfied with my meal and service.
Definitely avoid! I sat down for lunch last week, asked my waitress what GF options were available. She quickly told me that the shrimp tempura was the only thing on the menu I could eat. I asked her to verify with the cook. She then came back and told me I could order anything on the menu except for Pad Thai. Obviously that didn't seem right so I asked a few more questions. She then asked if I could eat flour and wheat. I told her no, and she walked away again to re-verify. I ended up leaving. It definitely was NOT worth the risk!
I don't know why this place has so many good reviews regarding its service to GF folks. I was expecting a great experience. Instead, they told me I couldn't eat anything but the curry. Everything else has gluten in it. I was shocked, because I've never been told that I couldn't even order sushi or sashimi (as long as there's no imitation crab, tempura, sauces, etc.) I said, "Even the sushi?" They replied yes, ALL the sushi has gluten. So I left, disappointed. I had expected better based on the reviews I saw here. If you want to try it, make sure you call first and ensure the chef on duty is willing to accommodate you!
They are certainly nice people and brought out he three bottles of sauces they use (soy, fish and oyster) so I could see if they had gluten in them. One did but that meant I couldn't eat much beyond sushi and curry. Everything else is made with a combination of those sauces. I worked at a Thai restaurant for five years that was much more aware of gluten allergies and able to guide customers. This place, though great for sushi isn't a great destination for gluten-free Thai food :(
The sushi was excellent, the staff was friendly and prompt, and the restaurant had a nice feel to it. Comfortable atmosphere, good prices, and food that's safe to eat!
The people at Lemongrass have worked with me to make so many dishes! I have been able to eat their soups and sushi without any complications. They even make their own broth fresh daily. If you ask questions, they will modify anything to make it so you can eat it!
