Had a great experience! Server was very knowledgeable and I had plenty of options. They also brought out gluten free tamari sauce without me having to ask. No reactions.

I got pretty sick after eating the gluten free spicy tuna dip. Wasn't sure if it was bad chips or bad tuna, but it was not fun afterwards.

Made sure to tell our server we were gluten free. Good GF soy sauce. Ordered Ocean Drive roll that was delicious and other rolls were amazing too.

Take extreme caution when ordering gluten free items and thoroughly examine them before eating. The servers may be very diligent with the order instructions, but the chefs may ignore the instructions. We specifically ordered items from the “gluten free” menu and received a roll topped with gluten filled sauce AND filled with tempura shrimp.

I was just glutened here- ordered miso soup off of their gluten free menu and was told it wasn't gluten free but when I asked why it was on the menu- all of a sudden she was mistaken. Ordered an app that I've had made gf before and a roll off their gf menu but when it arrived I saw what looked like crunch on it so I swapped with my friend who had the same roll but what looked like no cross contamination or crunch. Have been suffering since the morning after. Gluten free menus are only helpful if there's a guarantee of no cross contamination and actual gf items. They need to train their staff and have consistency- otherwise people suffer. We were there on a busy night- which definitely makes being gf riskier, but I just won't risk dining here again after this, it's not worth the two day recovery.
