You might think it’s easy to get gluten free sushi- but the chefs and servers must be very aware to protect someone with a severe allergy. Hokkaido can do that! Their sushi is fresh, and the cuts are clean (no sinew), and they can safely...More

I ordered an enormous amount of items from the menu, with additional special instructions, for myself and two children, for pick up at dinner time on a Friday night. Everything was prepared precisely as directed. The dishes were both fresh and delicious.
