Delicious gluten free offerings!
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
New executive chef (hired first week September 2020) who is highly educated in food allergies and super aware of/conscience of cross contamination. As of last week, the fryolator is 100% dedicated GF and all staff have been trained (and will continue to be trained) on all allergies, not just gluten, as well as cross contamination. The new chef takes allergies very seriously - he's married to someone who has celiac disease and is also allergic to tree nuts and shellfish.
Staff is very knowledgeable and the menu is very clear. They have some great gluten-free options including an amazing fish taco and fried rice with shrimp, pork, chicken or beef, which takes the edge off the craving for Chinese food. In addition they have many sushi options. They always have a gluten-free beer available. Great place to get the GF staples as well as some unusual GF options.
Not celiac friendly. Always out of things etc.
I can't speak to the rest of the staff, but I trust Christa (manager and bar tender) to get my sushi correctly. When I went in a couple weeks ago she had just done a full audit of ingredients and knew what was in everything. I had no problem with tuna/avo roll and salmon/avo roll. She also researched wasabi ingredients for me, because I also have a corn allergy.
Restaurant is so noisy at night we only go in on Sunday afternoons, so I don't know how service is during dinner rush. I also always sit at the bar.
ordered a gluten-free Burger with a side salad instead of french fries because the french fries weren't marked as gluten-free, and has specified gluten-free obviously, my burger came on regular bread and I had croutons on my salad..
It's ok. The day I went, they seemed on top of things. Got the gluten free fish tacos. If you are into spicy, this is the treat for you. It was a bit too much for me, couldn't finish them because of the heat! But the important thing is that I never got a belly ache :-)
I have been here multiple times and have had so many issues. You have to watch them! I have had my chicken or burger served on regular bread, fries (no dedicated fryer) when i asked for salad, salads with croutons and gluten dressing, the list goes on. You can get a halfway decent meal, but be prepared for cross contamination depending on who is cooking and who is watching. pay close attention or you will regret it. Oh and for a "sushi bar" nothing is real/fresh so us Celiac's can't gave any of it.
1st time I went I had a delicious burger and potatoes chopped (it was amazing), the only complaint is that I was almost served a gluten filled version of the meal.The 2nd time, I had a mushroom burger, but really the bread was a waste, it was falling apart. There were regular French fries this time and they were crisp and yummy. I also tried the gf chili and a creme brûlée. Both were yummy.1st meal was better than the second but I would def. go back for a third try
