My family has been going here for 25 years and it is still the BEST sushi I have ever had and I have been in over 100 countries. Kevin never ceases to amaze us with his talent! Can't wait to go back.

Hi Elizabeth, I think you should contact Minato directly, I didn't see any GF soy sauce for example but they may be able to offer if you ask. Hope they do, the food is great! R
