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.
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.
This was my husbands first time eating out since being diagnosed with Celiac disease. The hostess and waitress were very helpful and put my husband at ease. They advised him to order chefs choice so he could be made something special that would suit his diet. But we're willing to modify anything on the menu. His plate was beautiful and no problems after!
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!
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.
They do have a GF menu, but it isn’t Celiac safe. I ordered the vegetable hibachi off the GF menu and it came with tempura fried sweet potato and fried tofu (they do not have dedicated GF fryers, I asked). The salmon nigiri was delicious and they do offer GF soy sauce for an additional cost. Stick with the rolls and be sure you ask to speak with a manager to ensure your food is totally GF. My waitress didn’t recognize cross contamination as an issue when I told her that I have a gluten allergy.
I have eaten at Maru safely many times. They have gf soy sauce, are really knowledgeable about cross contamination and gluten in any sauces etc. There is now even a GF menu. One thing is they do charge $2 extra for GF tuna (normal tuna they use is not GF). However this isn’t listed in the menu and just shows up on the bill...
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.
The wait staff was very knowledgeable and was able to make gf modifications. They have gf soy sauce and sriracha to offer as condiments. I was so happy to enjoy eating sushi again. My only complaint was the speed of the service was very slow, but would be willing to go back!
They do not have a gluten free menu, however you can point to almost any roll on the menu and they will modify it to be gluten free (even the tempura!). Staff is very knowledgable. Also have about five gluten free desserts. The vanilla bean cheesecake and chocolate truffles were excellent.
