    Only ding is on the number sushi options. Sushi had a few different varieties of tuna, all similar to one another, only a couple options outside of tuna. Food was really good and staff was 100% on board. You could tell our kids non-GF meals were amazing and if it represented their adult non-GF options, I’m sure the rest of what they have to offer is tasty as well.

    Awesome to have real sushi again. After 10 on fridays and Saturdays (not sure about weekdays) they have half off sushi so that would be my advice. Ate here twice and didn't get sick.

    Separate GF menu. Staff was knowledgeable and accommodating to my celiac. The meal was absolutely worth the price.

    The food was definitely Celiac friendly and our waitress was very informed about what I could have. The only downside was unless you are getting sushi there are only a couple other entrees and appetizers available. I was pregnant so I didn't have many options in the sushi department and I LOVE sushi! Food was good and safe!

    The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free offerings and even had a separate menu. I came solely for sushi rolls (x two nights!). They don't have g-free soy sauce on the table, but immediately brought out tamari sauce when you tell them you are g-free. I will always visit here when I am in town and you should too!

    This place was awesome. We had to eat at the bar because it was Christmas eve and really full. Despite that, they perfectly handled our gluten and shellfish allergies, were super nice, and made really great good.

    Everyone took this seriously- separate menu. They went out of their way to keep us allergy safe. Plenty of sushi choices. Loved the mango crab sushi. We tried 2 sakis - liked the sweeter better than the drier. Definitely recommend.

    Waitress was awesome. She was so helpful. The sushi was amazing, but beware. The portions were so small! Gluten free sushi was good and did not make me sick.

    We sat at the bar at DK steakhouse and was able to order from both Sansei and DK. Great service, GF menus, best dinner of the trip, and my new favorite.

    The sushi is always fresh and delicious. The staff know how to prepare entrees safely for someone with Celiac. The bartender offered to make my martini with gluten free vodka which was a nice bonus.

    As soon as we arrived at the restaurant I was reassured that I would be safe eating here with Celiac. While we waited for a table the hostess made sure that the sushi bar was cleaned for us to avoid cross contamination. Our sushi chef was very good about showing us ingredients, I feel he went above and beyond. I cannot recommend this place enough!

    Genetic Celiac disease. Great food. The sushi chef Clark and the staff was so accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone with Celiac or following a gluten free diet. Full gluten free menu. Made changes as needed to ensure fully gluten free dishes. Can't wait to come back. The miso-yaki chicken is AMAZING!!! (they typically grill it but to ensure no cross contamination they baked it). Eat here!

    It was good,but the service was slow. I think Yuzu was just as good and less expensive.

    I didn't even know this place was Gf until I mentioned I needed gf to the waiter. He immediately ran off and came back with a dedicated gluten free menu and some amazing Gf soy sauce. They were very attentive and were knowledgeable about Gf needs and made me feel comfortable with what I ordered. I didn't try the "Gf beer" on the menu but they do have Angry Orchard ciders and a lot of other drinks. Overall a GREAT dining experience, especially for our last night in Hawaii. Good food for other family members that may not be gf as well!
