I can't believe I haven't been here before! They have gf menu to order from. They have tamari for you as well. Shining star: the california roll which had crab chunks rather than more like a crab salad.

Gluten free menu, staff very nice. Offered the miso soup, but declined it based on previous reviews. I’d come back here without hesitation.

Went for our anniversary and I called ahead. They told me that they had a gf menu and the sushi vinegar was gluten free. I didn't get sick. I used to love eating here before my celiac diagnosis. I asked if they cross contaminated and the woman reassured me they did not. We also sat at the sushi bar so I watched carefully.

When I walked in and asked about gluten free options, they told me they can't accommodate it.

Not safe. :/

To be fair, the carefully discussed roll (tuna, tobiko, salmon) and the ikura nigiri with tamari were fine, but then they offered me miso soup. Now, miso CAN be gluten-free, so I asked whether it was. Waitress said yes, but...cue itchiness, sensation issues, and hand tremor. We'll see tomorrow how bad the exposure was, but this is super-disappointing.

(Could totally be cross-contamination, of course; perhaps the miso was good but other ingredients were cut on the same board or mixed within -- there is a TON of fried stuff on Shimizu's menu, loads of breading integrated in rolls and entrees.)

The food is reliably good, and the service is so great it takes all my willpower to not engage in extreme overtipping. For authentic Japanese-style cuisine, I don't know that it's the best in the neighborhood, but for American-style sushi, it's quite good. Love going here!

1 celiac, 1 severely gluten sensitive, and 1 mildly gluten sensitive person walk into a tiki bar.... no this isnt a joke but the reality of my sunday night. my friends and I had just visited kona tiki bar and after strong drinks found ourselves in need of food before we continued our night out. we all ordered rolls and sake and left without getting glutened which is a rare occurrence in a Japanese restaurant. I had a delicious finding nemo roll without teriyaki sauce and added tamari to it

They will bring gluten free soy sauce to your table if you ask, and the staff is super friendly!
