Edited August 21st 2020. So it turns out they are using imitation crab. I don't know if that's a covid-19 or if that's an always thing but be careful of the crab. Maybe they will lose the attitude when we ask about gluten-free items now. So disappointed. Celiacs beware!! I'm so sad. I have celiac disease and with that am very limited to what I can eat. Bamboo has always been very good about telling customers about gluten in their food. Usually it's very safe, as they assure us it is. So much so we eat here at least once a week. We happen to eat there last night (June 7th, 2020). It was all I wanted after a 3 day fast. We ordered the rolls we always do, the ones we know are safe. I started getting sick within 30 minutes of finishing dinner. I haven't had this bad of a reaction in a very long time, which means I ingested a considerable amount of gluten. If you don't have any dietary restrictions with gluten please enjoy it, the food is absolutely amazing. If you are Celiac however please really consider whether or not to eat here. ❤

Entire menu is gluten free by default — they actually label what has gluten rather than the other way around. Also very helpful in finding dairy free and soy free options! Sushi is EXCELLENT. Jared was so helpful!!

Incredible experience. Everything was gluten free except buns because the owner had celiac. One of the best experiences I’ve had since diagnosis.

I felt unwell in a gluteny way immediately after eating here, but am not sure why. As others note the menu is mostly GF. We had veggie tempura, fried cauliflower, some sushi, cucumber salad, shishitos. I had a searing neck headache when I got to the car, later calmly threw up 2/3 of my meal, then fell asleep without noticing at 9 pm. This makes me suspect gluten.

You know when you go to a sushi place and you're like "damnit! I should be able to eat everything because soy sauce should actually be made of soy and tempura should be rice flour!". This is the place you've been dreaming of.

My favorite place to visit when in Portland. Staff is knowledgeable and as mentioned nearly everything is GF. The fried Philly roll on the happy hour menu is delicious!

Right when I walked in, I asked the host about their ability to accommodate the needs of people with celiac disease. Without missing a beat, she picked up the menu and showed me the only two unsafe items on the menu, the burger and the vegetable buns. The entire rest of the menu is gluten free! She explained that all of the soy sauce used is gluten free tamari, and they even have gluten free tempura! When I was seated I asked the server a few more questions just to be sure and he assured me that I was safe and that they take gluten-free needs very seriously. I had the eel, the black cod, and a couple of awesome rolls. Everything was delicious, fresh and beautiful. It felt wonderful to eat there without worry.

Nearly entire menu is gluten free (only a few things contain gluten and that's what's marked on the menu. Their panko is gluten free and only gluten free things go in the fryer so it's safe. Also good miso (add the truffled mushroom it's worth it). Tamari is used standard. Super good food. We will be back.

Without a doubt the most Celtic friendly sushi in Seattle. We were totally blown away that everything was safe but found out this was due to the owner being celiac. Shrimp tempura rolls!?!?

Had a bunch of sushi rolls and tempura at a party that were made from Bamboo Sushi. I was pretty skeptical but called the restaurant to confirm that what we had was GF. I wish I ate more. It was all so good, but I didn’t know if I could trust it. Felt totally fine afterwards and now am really looking forward to stopping in for dinner sometime soon!

Amazingly delicious and creative food, and you can feel safe eating here for sure. Our waiter was very comfortable discussing gluten intolerance and told us that only two things on the menu contain gluten: a burger entree (the bun, which can be substituted), and a steamed bun appetizer. The fryer is safe so you can order delicious tempura. ALL sauces they use or prepare for the sushi rolls or other entrees are gluten free. Our server even came back to give us some unique information about the Inari Nigiri (the tofu pocket around a rice roll), which we had ordered. He said at another sushi restaurant where he had worked, the tofu is pre-marinated in a ponzu/soy sauce that contained wheat. He checked with the chef at Bamboo to confirm their Inari is truly gluten free. Wow! Thank you to Bamboo Sushi for doing this - I only wish more Asian restaurants would get on board and source their soy sauce ingredients to eliminate the gluten! You may also be pleasantly surprised here if you are looking for a great vegetarian meal - their vegetarian/vegan rolls are very good, not to mention the veggie tempura.

Excellent sushi and excellent options. Waiter and staff were well informed and had no problem double checking that the fryer was dedicated, etc. The Tempura is gluten free! They only serve tamari sauce and real crab in their rolls. Highly recommend!

5 stars for gluten handling, but took one off for price /quantity. Sushi was excellent, tasty, and tender, but very small. Great on gluten, they have Tamari sauce on all the tables, all rolls and even tempura is GF.

I’m always on the lookout for gf sushi when I travel, and this really hit the spot. Only a few items on the menu contain gluten and they are clearly marked - everything else is gf. Great service and friendly staff, too. Wish I lived here so I could eat here all the time.

They recently changed their menu so that everything is gluten free unless indicated. No regular soy sauce, only tamari at tables. Tempura is also all gf now. I think pretty much all the food is gluten free except for buns and burger. Also it’s really good sushi. One million stars!

Many items on menu are just gluten free, no longer need to be modified to be gluten free (changed 2-3 months ago) Gluten free tamari on tables, use gluten free tempura, etc. Gluten free fryer. Sustainable, no MSG, no GMOs. Super yummy. I especially love the hoke poke box!

This was so delicious. Definately not your usual sushi choices. And I was so excited to find out that most everything is gluten free. They have only the items with gluten marked on the menu. We tried nigiri that was dressed with different seasonings. Not like anything we'd had before, we were slightly leary, but it was very good. The tempura green bean roll was delicious with tuna on it. We will definately be back when visiting Portland again!! Plus they were so responsive to my allergy needs it was really great!! Very This was so delicious. Definately not your usual sushi choices.

We frequent this place! They've made all their sauces gluten free. I hope they make an egg free Mayo option next.

They updated their menu this summer and some of my favorite options aren't on there anymore. If they have the ingredients they can still make some though.

This staff and location is my favorite of all the bamboo locations, they know the menu and allergens and take care of you.

I have Celiac and the staff clearly told me what I could have off the gluten free menu. No reaction. Please note any gluten free dish with fried ingredients (tempura) shares a fryer with gluten dishes so NOT Celiac safe. Highly recommend the fresh salmon rolls and the scallop rolls.
