ive been many times without any issue and usually order a couple GF specialty rolls, spicy ramen, and the garlic edamame. the staff has always been knowledgeable about what is okay to eat and the tamari they use throughout the restaurant is naturally gf.

but on my last visit (phone order / pick up during the pandemic) it took over an hour and a half for my order and both my partner and myself had the Worst Glutening of 2020. not sure im ready to go back anytime soon 😔

Menu is clearly labeled with what is and what can be GF. The waitress told me they would sanitize the preparation surface for me and double checked and offered alternatives when anything wasn’t clear. The soy sauce on the tables is tamari. Delicious, low stress meal!

Been here twice now, felt safe both times, didn’t even feel the need to pull out my Nima. They report taking allergies and celiac very seriously.

I can’t say for sure that it’s celiac friendly (seems a bit suspect) but it’s tasty and I have not gotten sick there.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Delicious! Worth the long wait for a table. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about allergen ingredients. Many GF options as well as nut free (only 2 items on menu contain nuts). Food, wine, service, atmosphere all 10 out of 10. Soy sauce on table is all GF. So happy!! Def eat here!

They have a clearly labeled menu as to what is GF. The food is very good. I have eaten here many many times and never gotten gluten-sick. FYI the wait is forevvvveeerr if you don’t get there early as they don’t take reservations. So if you can’t wait, get a to go order

Everyone should go to Shizen. They have many gluten-free and gluten-free option items. Their sushi is amazing, and their gluten-free ramen is the best I've ever had. Even their soy sauce is gluten-free! Their dessert is always either gluten free or has an equally delicious gluten-free option. I'm *very* sensitive to gluten exposure and get sick over even minimal cross-contamination. I've never had a problem here. I always let them know I have Celiac and they promise to take precautions. I'm so happy that I can have truly excellent food and trust that I won't be even slightly sick afterwards.

This is a vegan/vegetarian sushi joint. I know that maybe doesn’t sound the most appealing to some but I’m telling you it’s some of the tastiest sushi I’ve ever had. Atmosphere is great as well, just look at the pictures. Smaller place so it fills up quickly and there is usually a wait. They have gluten free ramen but the sushi is truly amazing and recommended. Fun date night for anyone but especially those who are gluten free and/or vegan/vegetarian.
