    Looking for a good and safe restaurant while visiting the Boston area, we found this. It ended up being a great place. Our server was incredibly helpful in pointing out what was safe and what wasn't. Our son chose sushi and she helped him get the right roll for him. He ultimately settled on an Alaskan roll, which was pretty big step for him being fairly new to sushi. The rest of us had outstanding food as well. My sushi roll had some tempura in it and so wasn't safe for him but the server was on top of things when I asked if it was safe since he wanted to try it. We would go back again in a heartbeat. On top of that

    Reasonable variety of rice and noodle dishes. We had two noodle dishes and a beef dish. The noodles were both excellent. Husband thought the beef dish was okay, but was not a fan of the cucumber water. Service was good - we came early around 430. However, we all had a reaction within an hour or so of leaving.

    I eat here all the time and am very sensitive! Highly recommend the fried rice dishes and the spring rolls

    Absolutely delicious mango friend rice! Plenty of options and the server seemed knowledgeable about gluten free food prep. I can’t wait to return when they have their live music!

    TLDR: Not celiac-safe Maybe we shouldn't have gone at such a busy time? Chose this restaurant based on Find Me Gluten Free reviews. Waiter was nice but didn't seem very knowledgeable about celiac. Tested my food with the Nima, it failed. Brought it back to the kitchen, and they offered to make new food but didn't give me the impression that anything would be different the second time. They took my meal off the bill, but my friends still paid for the meals that I had to sit and watch them eat. My advice: skip this, go to Life Alive instead.

    Had dinner here last night and back for lunch today. Lots of choices, knowledgeable staff and gluten free soy sauce. Will visit again next time I am in Cambridge!

    Great restaurant for pan-Asian food. My daughter loves the GF Pad Thai and the gf menu has lots of options. She has celiac and has never HS a problem. Live music too on some nights. Hardest part about this restaurant is getting a reservation! They do take walk-ins but you'll have to wait a while during peak times. Suggest you call ahead.

    I would give 10 stars if I could! My waiter noticed the tamari that I brought, and asked if I was gluten free. He then let me know that the imitation crab in a California roll I ordered have gluten in it, which I never knew before! I've ordered it so many times I never knew that was why I was getting sick. I thanked him profusely and he got a giant tip. I'm so impressed with their wait staff!

    Ask for the gluten free menu! They have one. :) The Pad Thai is out of this world!

    Great food but both times I went the staff had to check twice to see what was gluten free. Despite ordering the same thing both times (chicken stirfry)

    I order takeout from them and they have clearly marked what is gluten free and everything I've had there has been good!

    Excellent sushi. They don't have a GF menu, but when I mentioned I had a gluten allergy, my waitress asked if I wanted Tamari (GF soy sauce), so they're pretty aware.
