They have gf sushi and Japanese, plus teriyaki sauce that you can buy fresh that they jar. ❤ So you can go home and make some for a meal later. Prices are reasonable.

YUM!!!!! Finally! A place that does poké and sushi without soaking the meat in soy sauce! So many options. Even some menu options can be modified to be gluten free. We just moved to CO and I’ve found my fav poké and sushi place!

I used to love Tokyo Joe's. Whole, healthy food with plenty of veggie and protein options? What's not to like? However, since being diagnosed with Celiac disease, I've been to this location twice. Both times I was clear and polite about being a Celiac, and I love the fact that they even have GF teriyaki available. However, I have been very, very sick within an hour of eating lunch here both times. Maybe I'll try it again one day, but for now, I'm not risking it

I have celiac and another allergy. They didn’t prepare my meal safely. When we tried to resolve the issue, we were given a blank gift card as the refund. When I went to use the gift card, Ronnie wouldn’t redeem it. He said we write these types of things in a book. Then I tried to redeem what he said would be put into the book but he refused to make the situation right. Ronnie should be fired for being unprofessional and displaying poor customer service. I would characterize him as a person who discriminated against folks with food allergies. He would rather not do business with people with food allergies or take responsibility for his staff or his own actions. Avoid this location!!! My secondary allergy is life-threatening anaphylactic and it’s understandable that accidents happen but either reimburse people with a refund or comp their meal at the same value that they spent.

I have eaten here 3 times without a reaction. I am a very sensitive person to gluten. The sushi is good enough, but I had a teriyaki bowl last time and it was also good. I didn't think I would eat it all but...I did.

Riverside isn’t known for its GF food, but I was pleased to find I had a lot of options here. It’s not the best sushi I’ve ever had, but when I’m traveling I’m pretty much just happy if I don’t get sick. They have poke bowls, bento boxes, and a variety of choices of sauces and proteins. I’d definitely come here again. This place is more of a fast food type of restaurant than a sit-down sushi place.

Lots of gluten free options, everything is marked on their menu. Sushi staff washed hands and changed gloves before making a gluten free roll. The build your own bowls seem very safe and have very little risk of cross contamination because all of their grilled meats are gluten free and the sauces are kept separate and given to customers in to-go ramekins.

First time trying it and it was really good. They have tons of gluten free options. They did ask if it was an allergy so they can make sure to prepare it safely. They even have gluten free soy sauce.

Good food and nice people. Not sure if celiac friendly but fun place to go. I’m celiac and I didn’t get sick but I’m nervous to say it’s celiac friendly since there’s always a risk when it’s not dedicated.

The staff is so careful about gluten free food. On a busy night I ordered a build your own bowl and I added crispy onions which aren’t gluten free. The people cooking noticed right away and were quick to let me know and suggested other things that were gluten free.

The only downside is it isn’t the fastest place to get take out, but they are careful and it’s definitely worth hanging out for a minute to get your food. Love the atmosphere.

Also most of their sushi is gluten free and almost everything there can be modified to be gluten free.

Loved it! Brought the whole family here to eat (myself and two of my children are celiac) & we were impressed with the selection of gluten-free menu items and sauces! The staff was very friendly and took extra care with our orders to avoid cross-contamination. They changed their gloves and prepared our meals on a safe, separate work station. I was very happy with the food and service, so stoked to finally find another safe gluten-free option :) Amazing job, 5 Stars!

We went as a special treat. My daughter and I. Have not had trouble in the past. I am not sure if they didnt put allergy on the order or not. But the person who made my sushi didn't change her gloves and plated my daughter non gf sushi on the same plate! They did however give me gf soy sauce. I will not be back!!!!

We eat here routinely and have never had a glutening. It's not a GF restaurant, but if you tell them when you order that you're celiac, they change their gloves and take it very seriously. The food is pretty good, especially for kids and teens. They only have GF teriyaki sauce; I think the other sauces have gluten. But if you're careful about sauce and noodles, pretty much everything else is GF.

I used to love Tokyo Joe's, but they have really gone downhill fast. They no longer put the gluten allergy alert on the receipt and they start your order before they finish taking it, with no prior notice to the cooking staff that you need to eat gluten free. I get a dismissive "yeah, yeah" from the order taker and he finally notifies the cook. That's all in addition to the fact that their portion sizes have decreased and your vegetables are either mushy or raw, nothing in between. I used to go here once a week or more, but I'm done with this place!

They are great with gf and cc. they will change gloves, and when making sushi will even change prep area so it's not cc. I feel safe eating their sushi, as it's real crab, and they don't marinate the fish in soy sauce for flavor like many sushi places.

I absolutely had a wonderful experience here. The manager, Mr. Ali Smith greeted us with a smile and set a tone for a relaxed night out with my husband and grandbaby. Everything was made simple with clear marking by all items for any allergies or food preferences. I was very surprised by the ease I had in ordering. The food was very good and we were checked on to make sure we were happy. when we were finished Mr. Smith came over and chatted and we told him about the app I used to find him since he had said many times that gluten free was their specialty, in my opinion they do a spectacular job and are prepared to make boast. I had a great time great food and found me a new gem of a place 😊 I recommend going to see Mr. Ali and see for yourself
