While this place does not have a separate gluten free preparation area, they will change their gloves, utensils and clean their prep space if you tell them your celiac and ask for it. They have extensive gluten free options. Their wasabi IS gluten free, the manager brought me the bag of powder they use and corn starch is used. Nothing else in it of concern. I’m fairly sensitive and I had no problem here, I trusted their gluten free menu and had a variety of options to choose from.

For the most part our experience was great. I told them I had celiac but my plate came out with wasabi on it. I asked if the wasbi was gluten free and I was informed it was not. They did have gluten free soy sauce and the menu did have labels for GF.

Stopped here while visiting Austin. I had not had a good experience with sushi since being diagnosed. I've never gotten sick anywhere, but that's mainly because I always order boring rolls. This place was a refreshing change. The menu is clearly marked with gluten free options. I would not say it was a huge amount, but enough to get some good variety and have a good meal. This was a good walk down memory lane for me to remind me why sushi is such a magical food, and not just boring rolls with no flavor. I was a little confused when I ordered an appetizer (yakitori I think?) that was marked gluten free on the menu, but was then told that the sauce it came with was not gluten free, so in the end it was just skewered pieces of unseasoned grilled chicken with sauce on the side for my wife to dip in. Not really gluten free is it? Oh well, just get another sushi roll instead.

The GF menu is listed in the back, but you have to go back and forth and cross reference it through the menu. They have other menu items very clearly marked as vegan or cooked or spicy. There should be no reason for them to not mark the menu so that GF is easily spotted as well. Looking through the menu was so difficult that though they are somewhat gluten friendly, it's not likely we will be back. Took us 15 minutes to cross reference the GF page with the rest of the menu. There is no reason good miso soup or seaweed salad can't be made without gluten. And yet here, we could not get it GF. Bummer experience. :-(

I felt like sushi would be a safe option, but another example of where its best to speak to a manager at the restaurant before eating. The manager I spoke with was very familiar with Celiac disease as he has a family member with the same diagnosis. He was very helpful, but he, unfortunately, advised us that they do not safely avoid cross-contamination and that he would not let his family member with Celiac eat at Sushi Zushi.

Sushi Zushi has a fantastic GF menu! I’ve ordered delivery many times and never had an issue. The online ordering system notes what is GF on the menu.

The staff was very attentive and patient while listening to my concerns and took time to figure out which would be the most safe options for me. There was some education required on my end to help them understand what was and was not gluten. But they were open to hearing and accommodating.

Because the summer noodles are cold and therefore not cooked in a wok, I decided to try those and the coconut noodle soup. They said the protein options were marinated in a sauce that is NOT gluten free so I skipped those. I felt well after both dishes. I decided not to try the sake rita because staff was not sure if it was gluten free or not.

Incredibly limited selection, wait staff seemed hassled by the request for a gluten-free menu (online has no indicators) and gluten-free tamari (tried to insist low-sodium was the same thing!) The sushi was also grocery store quality and the spicy tuna was all mayo, no spice.

Looked so promising: gluten free menu, waitress told the chef about the allergy and careful note taking. BUT came with the roe which the menu says wasn’t gluten free: the waitress said she double checked with the chef but my husband had symptoms after. Definitely cross contamination at minimum.

No
