Maru has a pretty extensive GF menu. The waitress was super knowledgeable and brought out gluten free soy sauce without asking. All in all a great experience.
I love Maru. They take gluten contamination very seriously and have loads of gluten-free options. I have eaten here a dozen times and never had an issue with the food. However, beware if you go with a group- the wait for your food can be ridiculously long!
Food was great! Make sure to mention that you’re gf and they have a separate menu!! Gf soy sauce and even had some ciders on tap
The waitress we had informed us that they have extensive training on GF diets and can modify almost everything on the sushi menu. They have GF soy sauce, delicious sushi and an amazing GF cheesecake for dessert.
Explained the celiac situation thoroughly, seemed like she understood, but I'm still very sick a few hours later. They brought me gf soy sauce in the same container they use for other soy sauce so she said to "be careful not to mix them" my guess is that they were already mixed. I got sick eating the gf teriyaki chicken and all of their salmon has gluten in it. They are idiots and don’t understand what gf means at all. Their gf menu has gluten in it.
The waitress originally said they did not have a gf menu even tho it said so on the regular menu and then eventually after I asked again she asked the manager who got it for me. The manager said she was gluten intolerant and felt safe eating there but I wasn’t totally comfortable with the kitchen space because she said there is flour used for frying etc...so I just ordered from the sushi bar and got a salmon roll /edamame and was fine. It was pretty good!
I’ve been a couple times and felt reasonably safe. Their regular rice isn’t gf so be extremely clear that you need the gf accommodation due to an allergy. They don’t have a ton of gf sushi options, but the choices they do have are delicious. Also, they sometimes boil edamame in the same water as udon noodles, so if you want edamame, ask for them to be boiled in fresh water. Again, just be very clear about your allergy and you should be ok. They do mention at the bottom of their menu that sesame seeds could contain traces of wheat, and they put sesame seeds on EVERYTHING. I’d ask them to withhold sesame seeds.
As long as you tell your server you’re celiac, you should be good. Though, no one ever bothered to mention they have a gluten free menu until my last visit. So, I’d been eating there for three years without a single server ever bothering to mention that to me, even though I tell them EVERY time that I’m celiac and need everything to be gluten free. That annoyance aside, I’ve never been glutened here, and the food is DELICIOUS. I always get the oceans 11 with tamari. The dressing they use is not gf, so the salad that comes with it isn’t dressed, but it’s still delicious. The only appetizer that’s gf is the edamame, so I often get that, as well.
