Yama Sushi House – Phoenix

Location: Phoenix, Arizona

“We have dined here on several occasions and although we always make them aware of the allergy, they always say there aren’t any nuts and ask if sesame is okay. I’ve never seen any nuts on the menu. Our peanut and tree nut daughter usually orders the chicken teriyaki and we stick to sushi. Reliable and nut-free!”

@lbedwell, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Jade Palace

Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

“Staff was super helpful in getting allergens out of dishes and recommending dishes to eat. Awesome food!”

@nxm2001, who manages a peanut allergy


China Pasta House

Location: Tucson, Arizona

“Delicious food and great price! The staff is very understanding and is family run, so it just feels like I’m eating food that has been made with care and love. The staff is helpful with ingredients and dishes and their menu lays out most ingredients in their dishes as well. Only thing to watch out for is that there is a slight language barrier with certain things (it helps that I speak some Mandarin), but others in the restaurant are very helpful and can assist you in translating :)”

@toriwong, who manages peanut, tree nut and milk allergies


Sushi Garden – Broadway

Location: Tuscon, Arizona

“Their unlimited sushi deal is unbeatable. The menu is clear and (most) rolls list what is included inside. There is also the option to get dumplings which are dairy free. Sushi Garden uses vegetable oil to fry in. The tempura mix is also DF and NF. This is a staple for my friends and I!”

@toriwong, who manages peanut, tree nut and milk allergies


Sushi-Ten Japanese Restaurant

Location: Tuscon, Arizona

“Straight forward sushi menu. The chefs cleaned all the prep areas for me and pulled ingredients from the back to ensure my safety.”

@toriwong, who manages peanut, tree nut and milk allergies



Dumpling Express

Location: Berkeley, California

“I would always come here in college and get the BBQ Pork Buns! Safe for my nut allergy and tasty.”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Tako Sushi

Location: Berkeley, California

“Would safely come here in college all of the time for sushi!”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Toss Noodle Bar

Location: Berkeley, California

“This place is WONDERFUL. You choose your noodle, meat and your style and they give you an amazing stir fry that is super delicious and all around amazing. I would always have the flat rice noodles, the Chinese wok-toss, and chicken. They were always able to make sure it was safe for my nut allergy and I ate there safely many times. They do have a good amount of nuts on the menu though (satay, Thai-wok toss and curry), and shellfish too, so I was always wary and had fairly detailed allergy conversations while ordering.”

Angkor Asian Bistro and Bar

Location: Fresno, California

“My son can’t eat at many Asian restaurants due to his sesame allergy. The cook here does a wonderful job to make sure he is included!!”

@dsarsour, who manages tree nut, flax, mustard, sesame, peach and quinoa allergies


Hino Oishi

Location: Fresno, California

“Adam loves this place. They are good with nut allergies, but I won’t take my other son with a sesame allergy even though they try to accommodate.”

@dsarsour, who manages tree nut, flax, mustard, sesame, peach and quinoa allergies



Location: Fresno, California

“Great Japanese restaurant! At the bottom of each page of the menu, there is a line saying something to the effect of “please let your server know of any food allergies.” After informing our server of the nut allergy, she said there are no nuts in the whole kitchen and I didn’t see any on the menu prior to asking. Nut-free and easy!”

@lbedwell, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Tai San Restaurant

Location: Fresno, California

“I used to order from here all the time back in college! I would get the chicken fried rice, pork buns, and wonton soup (the no-shellfish one). Since my college days I have developed a pea allergy, so I cannot speak for how safe fried rice would be anymore. However, I would note my nut allergy while ordering and was always safe!”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Local Poke

Location: Pleasanton, California

“I’ve had this poke multiple times and always been safe! The owner is often there, and he always reassures me they do not use peanuts. There are macadamia nuts that can be added at the end. It is a small kitchen and not exactly allergy aware so definitely order with caution. The poke is delicious!”

@emilyamcelroy, who manages peanut and Celiac-gluten allergies


Korean Souel BBQ

Location: Oakland, California

“Peanut-free. Safe for anaphylactic peanut allergies. The kids love it!”

@pf100, who manages a peanut allergy


Monster Phở

Location: Oakland, California

“This Vietnamese restaurant is 100% peanut free! My boyfriend’s favorite food is Vietnamese, and because of my severe peanut allergy, we have not been able to enjoy it together. However, at Monster Pho, I can order anything on the menu, and my boyfriend gets to eat the food he loves! It was such a cool experience for me being able to try dishes I had only heard about and never gotten the chance to taste before because of cross contamination. We shared a beef pho bowl, a shrimp vermicelli bowl, and spring rolls, and they were all delicious! Even the sauces are safe! They use a mix of coconut and hoisin to recreate the traditional “peanut” dipping sauce. Such an amazing place with delicious food and friendly staff! I didn’t see any tree nuts on the menu besides coconut, but they were extremely knowledgable about allergies, so just check in with the staff if you have other allergies besides peanuts. Would highly recommend to anyone with peanut allergies who has been deprived of authentic Asian food.”

@emilyamcelroy, who manages peanut and Celiac-gluten allergies


Miyabiya Sushi & Grill

Location: San Francisco, California

“I’ve had a lot of sushi lately lol. Had an avocado roll and a spicy tuna roll! The waitress was also allergic to shellfish (we had a conversation about it). She didn’t write it on my ticket but I’m assuming she let the chef know (and I was safe).”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Moshi Moshi

Location: San Francisco, California

“Had a tuna roll and an avocado roll! Both were tasty and I loved the atmosphere. On top of being a fun restaurant, the menu is extremely clear! I was super impressed with how they listed roll ingredients, especially since they even included sesame oil (which you don’t often see). Made me more confident and relaxed since it seemed they definitely understood importance of ingredient transparency. One tiny issue— I thought I’d order a cucumber roll instead of an avocado roll, but I was very distracted while ordering so the order mess up may have been 100% my fault. Regardless, that would be the one thing to watch out for!”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies



Location: San Francisco, California

“I had ramen here with friends before seeing Frozen 2 at the theatre in Japantown! It’s entirely a noodle/curry place and when I asked if there was any concern about shellfish the waitress was confused as to why that would be a concern and reassured me that there wasn’t (I’ve run into shellfish broth in other places lol). Anyway, I was safe and the food was really fast! Not the highest quality ramen ever, but such a convenient and safe spot. I don’t remember seeing nuts on the menu at all (but still avoided the curry per my usual precautions).

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Monster Pho 2

Location: Emeryville, California

“Monster Pho is a 100% peanut-free Vietnamese restaurant. My daughter is allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts and corn and she does great with their beef pho. We always order beef pho with brisket and flank.”

@sophiachang, who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, egg and corn allergies



Location: San Jose, California

“This is the only place my daughter has been comfortable eating Ramen and it’s delicious. They don’t have any nuts on the premises and you can literally watch them prep their food.”

@zenwoman, who manages peanut, tree nut, apricot, cherry, melon and peach allergies


Rakiraki Ramen & Tsukemen

Location: San Diego, California

“This is the best ramen I have ever had in my life! At first I was hesitant to try a ramen restaurant because of my peanut allergy, but the staff went through every detail of how they make the ramen and other items in the menu. They took special precautions and told me they had no nuts in their restaurant or in their sauces! It’s a must if you’re in San Diego, CA. Actually, wherever you are you should fly to this special restaurant.”

@theallergictab, who manages peanut, tree nut, chickpea, lentil and pea allergies


Takami Sushi & Robata

Location: Los Angeles, California

“Very accommodating for dairy allergies and had many options for a varitety in food. The staff was knowledgable about their menu.”

@brodyaustin, who manages a milk allergy



Mannen Japanese Restaurant

Location: Ridgefield, Connecticut

“Asian food is tough when you have a nut allergy but Mannen is consistent with being super careful and proactive. My daughter has safely eaten Mannen tons of times. They take allergies very seriously. I highly recommend them.”

@slasky, who manages tree nut, kiwi, lentil and pineapple allergies


Sushi Yama Asian Bistro

Location: Boca Raton, Florida

“My daughter really enjoyed the sushi at Sushi Yama in Boca. With her allergies to mustard and sesame (among others but those are in many Japanese foods) they assured me that her sushi would be free from those ingredients. The waitress was very on top of the situation which made us comfortable.”

@stephsork, who manages tree nut, shellfish, flax, mustard, sesame and canola oil allergies


BENTO Jacksonville Southside

Location: Jacksonville, Florida

“Been going here for years! I never have a problem with nuts. The menu is clear and nuts are primarily in their noodle bowls/woks. To be safe, I usually get poke or sushi!”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Chotto Matte Miami

Location: Miami Beach, Florida

“Omg! So great, only nuts were in the desserts, we probably ordered 18+ dishes and I was able to fully try every one!”

@gabbylevinson, who manages peanut, tree nut, and peach allergies


Obba Sushi

Location: Miami, Florida

“I had a tuna roll and a cucumber avocado roll. I let the waitress know about my nut and shellfish allergies and she noted it on the ticket and they kept me safe! The one downside was that our food took a very long time to come out. We were in a bigger group (9 of us) so for the future, I would say to come with a smaller group!”

@scristol, who manages peanut, tree nut, shellfish and pea allergies


Hutong Miami

Location: Miami, Florida

“I went here with my family and was extremely nervous considering it’s a new Chinese restaurant. Upon arrival we were asked if there were any allergies at the table. We were told which dishes to avoid but also that they would make sure that everything be made separately from the rest of the food in the kitchens. We ordered a second set of the lobster dim sum and they told us that it would take a little longer since they are decontaminating everything in the kitchen for our table. Not a problem whatsoever and I graciously thanked our server, Victor for being so proactive and stating everything in each dish for us throughout the night!”

@msukert, who manages a peanut allergy


Pubbelly Sushi

Location: Miami, Florida

“Very yummy food, helpful and accommodating for food allergies.”

@saraalbert, who manages peanut and chickpea allergies

@kwood22, who manages egg, wheat and Celiac-gluten allergies


Urban Hibachi Sushi & Grill

Imperial Lamian

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“If you want a safe place to try Chinese food, try here for sure. Totally recommend their xiaolongbao soup dumplings, and any of their noodle dishes. Wait staff were super friendly and helped with any allergies.”

@nxm2001, who manages a peanut allergy



Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Our server was kind and accommodating. The restaurant also had a printed allergy guide, but no allergy information directly on the menu, but you can ask for it. The server did also proactively note that the cheesecake dessert was recently changed, so might want to avoid that to be sure. Great restaurant for kids in general and great staff!”

@sujaykapadia, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


MAK Restaurant

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“They are completely nut free except for their dessert which is made separately. Also super respectful of my shellfish allergy!”

@alansing, who manages peanut, tree nut and shellfish allergies


Opart Thai House Restaurant

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Well labeled menu of gluten-free options. Also, one of the best Thai restaurants in Chicago in my opinion! Beware of peanuts however.”

@aliu, who manages a Celiac-gluten allergy



Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Update: we went back to Sunda a second time and again had an amazing experience! Original review: This place was amazing! Wow. This is an Asian restaurant, typically off limits for us but we saw a few reviews on Spokin and felt comfortable giving it a try. They encourage family style and we ordered a ton because we went for our daughter’s 16th birthday. The waiter emphasized how seriously they take food allergies and showed me a sheet that he carries with allergens noted by dish. He took so much care and time and the place was jammed and busy but he honestly made us feel like we were the only ones there. I’m sharing a somewhat embarrassing list of food that we tried in the event it is helpful to anyone else! They even made Pad Thai without peanuts for us (they said that the sauce had peanuts in it and that its not just a garnish. We ate: steamed buns (pork belly), shiitake edamame dumplings, Lumpia (egg rolls and we made sure no nuts were in the fryer and they confirmed there were none but said that is not always the case), miso cauliflower, lemongrass beef lollipops, crispy rice with spicy tuna + sushi: tail of two tunas, sunrise and rainbow roll. Our daughter also had a mango soda. We ordered A LOT because it all sounded so good, we couldn’t believe how careful they were, they even asked if cross contact was a problem (yes, for sure for us) and seemed so capable — and for us, Asian food pretty much is off limits and ironically is our daughter’s favorite… it was perfect and also a super high energy, swank and fun spot!”

@susie, who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


San Soo Korean BBQ

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“Korean bbq can be really hard for FA people because often times Korean servers don’t know too much English and communication can be difficult. Luckily, this place still has authentic Korean bbq as well as a full-English speaking staff! One of the first questions they asked us is if we had any food allergies. Overall super delicious (and thick pork belly) and a chill restaurant vibe! Highly recommend for first time Korean bbq.”

@aliu, who manages a Celiac-gluten allergy

Tasty Cuisine Chinese Restaurant

Location: Des Plaines, Illinois

“DELICIOUS food and great for big gatherings. Tasty Cuisine lives up to its name because their food is so tasty!! They have authentic Chinese food and are incredibly helpful when it comes to ordering. They always warn me if they put out a dish that my party ordered that I can’t eat! I have never had any problems and have so many great memories from this restaurant.”

@toriwong, who manages peanut, tree nut, and milk allergies.

Nom Wah Tea Parlor

Location: New York, New York

“We ate here successfully and the food was yummy. This was the first time my daughter ever had dim sum. My mom spoke with waitstaff in Cantonese and they explained that the fried GF dim sum options shared a fryer. They do have GF Tamara sauce (San-J) to use. The only nut product on the menu were almond cookies. It was cool eating here because our family has been eating there for a long time. Nom Was is one of the original dim sum places in Manhattan China Town. The staff do speak English, but we spoke to them in Chinese to make sure they understood.”

@vkotz, who manages peanut, tree nut, and wheat allergies

“FUSIAN sushi is my favorite place!

@punkinmama, who manages tree nut and milk allergies


Sakura Teppanyaki & Sushi

Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

One of my favorite allergy-friendly places ever (and that’s saying something!)”

China-Restaurant Mandarin

Location: Wien, Austria

“I had their fried chicken with sweet chili and fried rice. Pretty good. I am typically a harsh critic when it comes to Chinese food but I thought this was pretty decent. We did carry out so I didn’t get to experience the service, but they did mention that they only use canola or vegetable oil, not peanut oil! Big plus!”

Genki Sushi Orchard Central
