They have GF sushi rice and tamari! Their rolls with real crab (not glutinous 'krab') were delicious. However, the spicy tuna rolls had an unpleasant fishy taste. Takeout was ready in 10 minutes.
Just went here for a birthday dinner. Waiter was very well informed, knew the difference between diet preferences and true sensitivities and guided me well. All the in house sauces and marinades are GF because they use tamari sauce instead of soy sauce and they make that available on table by request. Awesome fear free meal! Their teriyaki chicken is amazing.
The sushi is delicious and the staff is knowledgeable. The staff will also double check orders with the manager to make sure everything ordered is gluten free. The also will bring out gluten free soy sauce.
My complaints: they no longer have gluten free tempura & they now charge a $10.00 fee for ordering gluten free for people with Celiac. This is in addition to up charges for ordering dishes that have imitation crab and substituting real crab. I love the sushi but don’t frequent this restaurant as much as I used to due to the charge. PF Chang’s charges more for a gluten free dish than it’s counterpart, so it’s kind of the same, only Mio Sushi charged up front.
Not safe for gluten free. At first, I was happy to hear that their sauces were gluten free and I was excited to try this place. The first time I ate here I was impressed with the variety of rolls and they were super accommodating with my GF needs. I had no problems at all. So I came back a 2nd time and this time I got super sick. I am very sensitive to gluten, but just a tiny amount won’t make me violently ill. This was not just a tiny amount of gluten. It takes a lot to make me THAT sick. Wow, it was so bad. I’m not sure why there was a problem with the 2nd visit. I carefully explained my GF needs both times. It was the same waitress both times. Anyway, skip this place if you have celiac or are otherwise GF.
We are regulars here, and never any issues (3 celiacs in the fam). Can easily put together a delicious and varied meal of GF sushi. All of their in-house sauces are GF. However, note that their Unagi is not made in-house, so that is glutenous. All rolls with fake glutenous crab can have real crab substituted (for a price). Keys to GF sushi eating: No tempura, no Unagi, substitute real crab for fake crab, ask for tamari instead of soy sauce--> Good to go!
if you're looking for fresh sushi, keep looking. the rice was stale, and the veggies had almost no flavor. we waited to be seated (10 mins), waited to ask questions (15 minutes), waited to order (10 minutes), and then waited for the food (30 minutes), and that was on a Wednesday night. oh, and the $10 upcharge for safe prep applies to ANY time they're busy, not just the weekends.
2 stars because they DO have gf options, otherwise would rate this place 1 star.
Anthony is the only server with knowledge about gf options. another waitress answered my questions in the beginning, and it turned out I could order less than half of what she told me was okay.
seriously, gf friends, keep looking. there are way better options within a 20 minute drive.
Daniel, the owner, and Anthony, the best waiter ever, are very knowledgeable and make sure that everything is safe for me. Ask for Anthony when you order and tell him you are gf and he will take care of you! the GF Mt. Rainier roll is my favorite!
They can make almost their whole menu gluten free. They reminded me what I have been missing and then some. I ordered a roll and I wasn't happy with it. They traded it out, no questions. The tempura is wonderful. Polite, attentive, and customer oriented staff. Portions, flavor, quality are all wonderful.
I go here oftenand I am never disappointed. the manager is very noligable about gluten and all the soy sauceused on the food is gluten free! some items even use real crab so it is gluten free friendly to kids. if you enjoy raw sushi there are many different types for people with celiac. ask your waitress about the options, they will be able to help you and give you some extra gluten free soy sauce as well.
Bummed that you can't have teriyaki or other delicious Japanese dishes because of the sauces? This place makes most of its sauces with gluten-free soy sauce! Monica the manager is friendly and eager to discuss all of the gf options. Steven the sushi chef is always friendly and welcoming, too.
