Very best Japanese food I have ever had: the food, wine/beer and the service were outstanding. They have all the special fish and very talented sushi chefs.
We went there as friends and business associates intending to have dinner after a long day.
I asked the owner (Chef Engin Onural), who greeted us personally at the door, if I could have a gluten free meal. He invited me inside his five star kitchen (very much organized and clean) and showed all the labels on packages. He gave me detailed information about sushi preparation and asked me if I was comfortable with the ingredients used during that process. He said that most of the ingredients come in as pure as in nature but unfortunately their packages do not carry a gf sign. So, he asked me to choose the supplies I liked and feel safe; then in minutes he prepared a delicious set of sushi -huge range of tasty options-and salad plates which served with gluten free beer and gluten free soya sauce!!!I was amazed with his care and professional attitude... I felt like a queen!
My non celiac friends ordered The Venue specialty rolls, Albacore/Shiro Maguro
Snow Crab/Kani and they were very much pleased with the food and the service too.
I will go back there every time I'm in Palm Desert for the rest of my life! Great food, tremendous service - I only wish I lived 100 miles closer.
