They take celiac very seriously! They also have a dedicated fryer for us GF folks (wow, how many restaurants have that??) if your heart desires. It’s an elderly Japanese woman and her daughter who run the place, and if you’re a regular, I promise they extra treat you like gold and very much look forward to seeing you. I usually get sushi while my brother likes the chicken teriyaki. It’s very yummy. They were located in SF for about 20 years before, so we’re pretty lucky to have them here now!

Plan on some extra time, but totally worth it! They take so much extra care (hence the extra time) when preparing food for any allergy. Super fresh and delicious!

This is the first Japanese restaurant with lots of gluten free options I have been to. Almost the whole menu can be made gluten free, they also have a dedicated fryer and only use tamari in the restaurant. The food was great, we ordered whole grilled calamari, ramen and teriyaki fried chicken dinner set. The hostess was welcoming and knowledgeable.
