All the GF items were clearly marked. There were lots of GF options. The server was educated on GF. She brought out Tamari/GF soy sauce right away. The sushi was delicious and fresh. Everyone enjoyed everything we ordered. No sickness, not even an upset belly : ). We will be back!

They have their gluten free items clearly marked on the menu and there are a lot of them. The fish was fresh and I’d say some of the best sushi I’ve ever had. It was a fantastic experience!

I went for my birthday back in January 2020, and forgot to leave a review! I called ahead and spoke with the manager who said they would make every effort to keep me safe. The GF items are marked on the menu and if you let them know you have celiac when ordering, they will be extra cautious. They will bring you GF soy sauce too! They even recommended a GF sake for me too. A very happy, comfortable experience!

Experienced a bad stomach ache due to the gluten in the wasabi. I asked the lady if my sushi was gluten free but no where on the menu did it say the wasabi contained gluten. I’d recommend bringing your own wasabi if you’re wanting to get sushi here.

This place is definitely one of my stops every time I visit Seattle. Celiac safe sushi is difficult to find and they even have specialty rolls that are gluten free. The miso is gluten free, too. The butterfly roll is delicious and very fresh!

Thanks to the app I found this place!! I felt safe eating here even tho it was a really big and busy place. They were knowledgeable about celiac and made me feel certain they knew to avoid cross contamination etc. I got a couple of sushi rolls and edamame. They brought out Tamari in a container but I didn’t use it because I’m always nervous they will switch them up by accident so it’s not worth it to me. I didn’t get sick and it was delicious!

Okay, I’m giving them 3 stars because of their gf options, but the food is lacking in flavor and definitely not amazing. It’s okay, but really not worth the price of around $18/specialty roll. We have had much better sushi many times down in Olympia. The restaurant itself is cool though; they have an indoor area that’s set up like a Japanese garden, which is pretty unique, but in my opinion, it doesn’t make up for the food.

BEST GF SUSHI in Seattle!!! We are so happy we found this place!! The menu is marked with what rolls are gluten free which makes it for an easy dining experience. We have eaten here twice so far and didn’t get sick.

Agree with all the other reviewers! Wonderful ambiance, amazing happy hour prices, GF noted on menu items, miso is GF, separate bottles of tamari, and for the first time ever I’ve finally found California rolls that are GF! We loved it and can’t wait to go back.

Huge sushi menu and gf soy sauce. I'm thrilled to have found a sushi restaurant with gf sushi rice, as most US sushi isn't gf. Staff very friendly and gf aware.
