This is by far the best dining experience I’ve ever had, especially considering gluten-free safety. The quality, service, atmosphere, and prices are outstanding. My girlfriend and I split the seasonal sashimi dish, yellowtail roll, spicy salmon roll (finally! GF spicy salmon!), ice cream, and cloud cake. The waiter, Isaiah, helped me select two fantastic sake drinks (I normally dislike sake, but these were delightful) and effortlessly guided us through the menu to ensure everything was GF. This is sushi on a new level. You must try this place if it fits your budget. At least try the rolls — they’re only $10 and packed with high-quality fish! Cannot recommend highly enough.

the best experience ive had in center city and ive lived here for about a year now. very knowledgable staff, amazing service, modern yet cozy atmosphere. my waiter read off all the gf items to me and answered every question i had quickly and confidently. having severe celiac i havent had real authentic japanese food in over 2 years bc of so many situations of cross contamination, but here i felt safe. i waited 24 hrs before writing this review to say ive had absolutely no symptoms or reactions to the food. i highly recommend the entree: ishi yaki bop. expensive but totally worth it. everything on the menu is a work of art. i definitely plan on returning, the food was delicious! :)

Strike two in Philly. Staff is knowledgeable about gf / contamination issues but there are very few items that can be made gf. Been spoiled in CA where there are entire gf Japanese restaurants. Food/service was great, atmosphere a little to "hip" for this down to earth Bay Area foodie. Very good food -- needs to ditch soy and convert more menu items to better tasting Tamari! Food is five stars, just be prepared to only have four or five choices (two of which are salad!).
