    The owner really understands the importance of eating safely, as she has several anaphylactic food allergies herself. Tons of gluten free options including teriyaki! She checked all our dishes twice to make sure everything was prepared safely before serving. Food was great!

    Delicious GF sushi with separate menu and knowledgeable staff. Enjoyed the night immensely! Recommend the spicy tuna and veggie caterpillar roll.

    They have a separate GF menu and also have gf soy sauce on the table. There were many options; I got the chicken teriyaki and a california roll and they were very good!

    Great customer service and very attentive to gf needs. It can be tough to find gf sushi but theirs is excellent. Definitely recommended.

    They have a separate gluten free menu that is a little dated (wrong price and certain things were no longer available), but the staff was great. They had tamari and were very accommodating.

    A good selection of GF options and knowledgable staff. They did put the non-GF wasabi on our sushi plate but they have regular horseradish you can order.

    I really wish this place was safe, but I have had cross contamination problems here the last 2 time I visited. If you aren't a super sensitive celiac, Mikaku is amazing!

    I had delicious teriyaki salmon and my son had California rolls (made especially to be gluten free as they knew he couldn't have imitation crab). Also, we had miso soup and a plain salad. Food all tasted excellent and they knew exactly what we were talking about regarding gluten and dairy. Highly recommend. We are extremely sensitive to minute amounts of gluten and we did not get sick. This place is right at the entrance of China Town.

    Pretty good sushi at a decent price. Staff were knowledgable about cross contamination and there was a good selection on the GF menu. They did put wasabi on my plates and when I double checked, they said it was not GF (so minus 1 star for that). Otherwise it was nice to have sushi again and not get sick!

    Thanks to everyone for the previous reviews! After a long day of traveling to SF from the east coast, it was nice to walk into a restaurant and not have to explain my gluten free needs. Very large menu to choose from, understood what gluten free really means!

    Very impressed. Knowledgeable about gluten-free requirements, great service, and great food. If you're looking for gluten-free Japanese food in the Financial District or Union Square area, Mikaku is the place. In addition to providing separate gluten-free menus, they understand that it's a health issue for some of us. (A number of other "gf-friendly" restaurants in the Financial District seem to see it more as a dietary fad and aren't informed.) Our waiter was great. He answered my questions without any hesitation or "I'll have to check with the chef" - stuff that often makes me leery that the restaurant truly understands gluten-free needs. The food was terrific and fresh (sushi and teriyaki). Service was prompt, attentive without being intrusive, informed, and pleasant.

    Great food, service & location. It's right at the gates of Chinatown. It has a gf menu and gf soy sauce. I had the edamame, MK veg roll and veg tiger roll. Delicious!

    My 12-year-old celiac son is very skeptical of eating out. He loved that this restaurant brought us LABELED gluten-free soy sauce, along with a gluten-free menu that had tons of choices! And the food was delicious! We will definitely go back!

    I have a feeling this is going to be my new favorite sushi place. Recently I was heartbroken to find out that the one thing I felt safe eating at restaraunts--sushi--was not as celiac safe as I'd thought it was...which at threats explained the moderate skin problems I've still been having. Waitresses were happy to double-check with the cook on the gluten-free status of several dishes to soothe my paranoid mind.We had chicken janitors, a California roll, miso soup, and a veg roll with sweet potato. Everything was delicious, and the service was friendly. Open till midnight on weekends...go late to avoid the crowds.

    wonderful safe and delicious dining experience. The owner spent a great deal of time at our table; she has her own food issues and knows what she's doing with food prep and preventing cross contamination. gluten Free soy sauce! which meant a LOT of sushi

    Based on other great reviews on this app, we dined with our family during a recent San Francisco trip. I had hoped that it was a Chinese restaurant, as it is located just outside of Dragon Gate. It is Japanese. The sushi was fantastic. They made our daughter a fabulous gluten free teriyaki chicken that she loved. The chef has many allergies and personally introduced herself to us and our girl. A wonderful experience!

    It was so good we have eaten here 2 nights in a row. The owner, Natasha, visited our table personally to go over menu options. Wonderful gluten free meal. The chef made special adjustments as needed. It was delicious too. Best meal I've had so far in SF.
