We received excellent service here; and DELICIOUS food. It’s always humorous asking for food suggestions when I’m pregnant and Celiac at a SUSHI restaurant, but our server took super good care of us. He gave us several menu options and answered all of our questions; even double checking with the kitchen multiple times when he wasn’t 100% sure. The butterfish was GF and absolutely delicious and they had a Tamari on hand as well. Highly recommend.
— No gluten-free information on the menu
Staff was great, very helpful and knowledgeable. Had Tamari on hand for sushi, and had GF menu which helped with selection. Very busy restaurant, so definitely potential for cross-contamination but my celiac husband did fine. Sushi itself was good, but we were a little let down after all the rave reviews - wasn’t better than what we regularly get at home in SC.
No table reservation available for weeks, so opted for scheduled take-out, 48h in advance to secure an early dinner pick-up time. There are other items that are naturally gluten free but not included in the gluten-free menu, such as simple maki rolls and nigiri, as well as the misoyaki chicken that we ordered with a side of rice. It was delicious! My favorite items were the sushis and rolls made with fresh local produce and fish. Very flavorful! We requested GF soy sauce at pick up.
— Separate gluten-free menu
I love this restaurant and frequent the one on Oahu. However, the one on Oahu removed all their miso dishes a while back (miso butterfish, miso eggplant, etc) because they realized they weren’t GF due to malt vinegar. Someone that wasn’t communicated across locations. I let them know so hopefully it’ll change but it made me unsure of/distrustful of their menu. Went with basic sushi to be safe and was fine
Sansei’s has great Japanese cuisine. They have a lot of gluten free options and a separate gluten free menu. The food was really good, and they had Tamari Soy-Sauce. They have a gluten-free Lava Cake that was pretty good.
They had a separate GF menu with most of the sushi rolls available, as well as Tamari sauce. We ordered a few rolls and appetizers (the eggplant was delicious) and they always announced GF when they brought a new plate. Considering it’s hard to find GF sushi restaurants I really enjoyed this meal.
