Easily one of the best dedicated GF restaurants I’ve ever been to, and the best sushi place I’ve been to - including during my pre-diagnosis sushi-obsessed years. I’ve been here about a dozen times and never had the slightest reaction. The staff is great, the quality is amazing, and I’ve had several of my all time best rolls here. My only warning is that they can get pretty busy some nights, so just be aware that sometimes they can’t take walk-ins.

100% gluten free (except for a couple bottled beers) and this was one of the loveliest dining experience I've had in so long. Went for my birthday and the server helped curate a gorgeous dinner with lobster karage, a goddess veggie roll, a couple of fish rolls, and this flat rice noodle butter mushroom dish that was so amazing we were talking about it the rest of the night. Everything was so fresh, super high quality, and the flavors are so thoughtfully and beautifully paired. Highly recommend for safety and a gorgeous experience. (You have to reserve online to be seated, just as a heads up.)

Went for a birthday meal- everything was *incredibly* delicious and safe from start to finish! Glorious food- safe kitchen- and they asked about vaccine status for indoor seating. I love this place and will continue to eat here as long as they are gf. The whole place is gf except for some beer pours.

I’m also allergic to soy and they were extremely careful to make sure I didn’t get sick. The sashimi was super fresh and delicious. I especially liked the salmon and yellowtail/hamachi. Highly recommend!

Eaten here several times and always had a good meal. Rolls are very tasty. Service can be a little questionable (seem to rush us out towards closing, while simultaneously saying to take our time).

Appreciated that it's dedicated GF. The extensive sake menu is nice. It's strange how half the 4 oz pours are served in a box but I'm glad the bartender told us.

Did the okasame (sp?) or chef’s tasting menu here— AMAZING! I’m not a huge seafood person but everything was delicious and fresh- tuna, scallops, salmon, eel, flounder, prawns; and crab were included. Sake mule was top notch and they had an extensive drink menu. Everything was GF including the soy sauce- had zero reaction after trying pretty much everything they had. Will definitely be back with friends for the tasting and atmosphere- the chef was very nice to talk to and explained everything in detail. Excellent date night place for sure!

I think everything is gluten free and everything I have tried here was delicious! The staff is personable and knows what they are talking about. It’s pretty small and on a popular street, so you may want reservations if possible.

The entire menu is now GF! This is the only sushi place I have safely dined at and the only one I trust anymore. It's not cheap, but good sushi never is.

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).
