FYI celiacs: you need to still make some modifications to the (amazingly extensive!) gluten-free menu. A helpful manager let me know to avoid anything fried, since there is risk of cross-contamination in the fryer. That includes the crispy rice that goes on top of some of the rolls. So for example, the manager said you can substitute grilled shrimp for fried shrimp, and request no crispy rice, and it would be celiac safe. Be sure to mention that it is an allergy/celiac. He said they have designated bowls for the gluten-free preparation, and they typically have one chef in charge of all things gluten free. Oh and they have GF Tamari + packets for takeout. I appreciate their awareness and precautions, and I would feel safe eating here again!

Amazing! Gluten free menu, tamari soy sauce, and knowledgeable staff. Specialty rolls with real crab! Staff knew how rolls need to be modified to meet gluten free diet.

The menu is clearly labeled and when I picked it up each container was also labeled and separate from the non-Gf items in our order. The server included GF tamari in our bag to go. Sushi was fresh and tasty!

My boyfriend and I already loved Sushi Lounge PL prior to my celiac diagnosis. I was so happy to find out that they have a separate GF menu, and I could still eat the majority of my favorite things. They even have GF Ponzu sauce (my favorite). Additionally, our waiter was really understanding, patient, and helpful when I had questions. I felt totally fine after my meal, and didn’t get sick at all. Can’t wait to go back!

They can make almost all their specialty rolls gluten free! They replace tempura with cornstarch and they replace imitation crab with real crab. They also have gluten free soy sauce and can make any of their sauces gluten free. Ask for the gluten free menu so you can see all your options. I shared 3 different rolls with my Fiancé and they were all delicious!!

The staff knew about what was gluten free and double checked if she wasn’t sure. I did have to ask if a sauce was gluten free and when she double checked it wasn’t and they had to make a new one. I had ordered off a gluten free menu so I would have assumed all was gluten free. I gave three stars because I was diligent about clarifying and double checking and had I not it would have been bad. Food was fabulous and I am posting 6 hours later and feel just fine. Go there and enjoy but make sure you ask. She said the sushi chef made sure it was gluten free but the kitchen made the sauce and didn’t.

Delicious sushi! Sushi Lounge has a gluten free menu and make regular favorites like spicy tuna roll gluten-free upon request. Don't forget to tell them you need gluten-free soy sauce. It's a really tasty one!
