Meal was good but thought menu was limited with over emphasis on sushi. Ramen was not too good. Yakisoba was nice. Desserts were bad.

Everything was delicious, but don’t be surprised by prices, it is Winter Park. For a full meal get the Shrimp Tempura. You get your fish and vegetables for just $12. We also recommend the Truffle salt edamame for just $8.50 a very good deal.

Dear Douglas, We do not offer a menu section of gluten free, but there are options on the menu that you can still eat. Sashimi and the Robata grilled items will be your best options, as well as select hot & cold plates... More
