    Zilla has replaced the unagi on their menu with anago and is now 100% gluten-free. I’m celiac, and it’s so lovely and relaxing to simply be able to go out for a nice meal and not think at all about allergies! The sushi is delicious and deliciously simple (no cream cheese here) and the sake menu is vast.

    One of the chefs at this restaurant was really rude when I politely told my waiter that I had celiac and was very sensitive. Though the unagi is the the only thing that contains gluten on the menu, I saw it all over the cutting board, the knife, and the water. (This is a restaurant where the chef makes the sushi right in front of you). He said "I guess I'll try my best" and "plenty of celiacs come here and are fine and don't get sick". He was really rude and embarrassed me. I hate having celiac, but I can't do anything about it and if you can't accommodate me or simply won't then don't advertise about being gluten free. After I finished eating he said "look you lived" in a snarky voice. Really not necessary, also, I got super sick. Hard to walk home because my stomach ache was so bad. So yeah if you have celiac I wouldn't bother, it was a horrible experience.

    Absolutely love this place! The waiters are very informed. They have a lot of gf options. The rolls are simple & delicious (more traditional Japanese style and not Americanized). The fish is stellar and they have real wasabi (grown in Oregon).

    Only two things on the menu I couldn't eat! I'm celiac and had no reactions.
