Tasty but overpriced. They also wouldn’t do substitutions.

Plenty of options both with and without fish (if you’re vegetarian). Rolls were delicious and reasonably priced. Waiter clearly marked GF on his notes and confirmed it was celiac safe when it arrived to the table. Shoutout to everyone who rallied when we realized later in the evening that we had dropped an expensive piece of jewelry. It wasn’t at Raku, but they were very helpful and we did find it later that night!

Enjoyed soup, several GF rolls and sashimi. Separate GF menus for lunch and dinner. Spicy tuna roll (modified) was delicious! Would happily eat here again.

So excited to finally have sushi again after so many years not feeling safe for celiac in an Asian restaurant. They have an entirely separate gf menu and tamari on request. So many gluten free appetizers, salad, and sushi options. Ordered the spring roll and Korean BBQ hanger steak apps, yellowtail sashimi and a salmon California roll. Everything was delicious and I don't feel sick!! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of gf allergies.

I am a very sensitive Celiac and have never had a problem eating sushi here (I have not tried anything else). I always ask them to be extra careful (to use a new board etc). Also- it’s delicious.

Had a wonderful time being able to chose safely for our two celiac teens. Food was excellent, waiters knowledgeable. Dedicated GF menu made it easy for them to chose.

Celiac. I order sushi from them routinely. I always call and let them know. If you prompt them they will package separately and take precautions. Tuna avocado roll is phenomenal and never once had an issue here so long as you call with your order and let them know.
