Last night Devin and I went to Sansei Sushi, in Kihei, with some friends. Sansei’s waitstaff is amazing when it comes to Celiac Disease. The waitress informed me that they often have people with food allergies dining there. She was able to list every item on the menu which would be safe for me to eat.
UPDATE 6/16/2011: This is still true!
Sansei also has San-J Wheat Free Tamari, just ask for it. Most of what us non-gluten eaters can have are the very simple vegetarian rolls and the Nigiri sushi and Sashimi.
UPDATE 6/16/2011: They are now offering Yamasa wheat free tamari.
Beware. Just because it is an expensive sushi place does not mean they use only crab in their California rolls. The waitress informed that it is actually a mix of crab and imitation crab in them, so please do not eat these if they are unsafe for you. I left totally full, and completely satisfied.
UPDATE 6/16/2011: For an additional cost they will use all real crab.
