I really like pokeworks for the food, it's a great poke bowl place with lots of different options.

However, it is not a celiac friendly establishment. The staff is not knowledgeable about what has gluten, though they have have an allergy guide online. Cross contamination is highly prevalent (i.e. stray noodles in the Tuna tray).

If you are concerned about being glutened, I'd recommend somewhere else.

Recently opened and clearly stated on the menu which items and sauces are gluten free or vegan. You can still enjoy poke even when gluten free! Just avoid the shoyu sauce and imitation crab mix. The classic sauce and aoili sauces are fair game! Delicious!

Most things here are gluten-free but they aren’t careful about cross-contamination. I told them I have Celiac (clarified as gluten allergy when they didn’t know what that was) and they were helpful about pointing out what was not gf. However, they didn’t change their gloves and took a spatula out of a shared bin of used spatulas to mix my bowl. Ask for it unmixed to avoid cc.

We had great rice bowls with many toppings that were GF. My daughter had tofu and I had spicy salmon.

Tried for the first time today and was sick within an hour of eating. I informed the associate I have a gluten allergy and was told there were basically only 2 or 3 ingredients unsafe to eat. I ordered the shrimp & scallop bowl and double checked that all the ingredients are GF. Upon doing a google search when I got home, I read that their masago (orange fish eggs) are not GF! Avoid. Seek out a reliable sushi place instead.

Been to several locations! They mix everything in a separate bowl and have their sauces listing what is GF. Been going for about 3 years and have yet to get sick.
