I am GF, wife is Keto. We were really looking forward to eating at the great Iron Chef’s restaurant! We figured we would find a new level of umami! However, It was hard to find anything without carbs for wife. Although many items can be made Gf, the tasty sauces are removed. I had GF Fried rice and had a very bad reaction within 20 minutes. Overall… not a great experience for us. We were surprised that a Japanese-inspired restaurant used so much wheat! PF Chang’s is much better at 1/2 the price. 😢

Such a great experience! All gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about what was and wasn’t gluten free, and she informed the chef of my allergy. Our table shared edamame (I put mine on a separate plate to avoid cross contamination) which was amazing. For my meal, although it isn’t on the menu, I ordered chicken fried rice with vegetables. It was the best chicken fried rice I’ve ever had, and I didn’t get sick. Overall, very good!!

We were in heaven finally eating gf sushi! They will make the rice for the rolls gf. The quality of the sushi itself was stellar. Even a gf California roll with cooked blue crab. Kid friendly. Can’t find this at home! It’s in Disney Springs so it’s considered Disney standard, world class for allergies. They have tamari available. This is also one of the few places in the US with real wasabi. It is a blended mix but so delicious. The ambience is beautiful.

When I first heard about this place, I was so excited about the prospect of Gluten-free sushi! The menus have a little symbol on them to indicate which items are gluten free. Our waitress was very informed on what was gluten and dairy free. I got the tuna sushi rolls and my mom ordered the Buri Bop. They were both extremely tasty and gluten free! OverallI had an amazing experience and would definitely go back
