Helpful Tips:
  • Opt out of "spicy" options, as they usually contain mayonnaise. You can sometimes request they leave the mayo out... just ask.
  • Skip the rice sometimes and get your roll wrapped in cucumber instead (or just go for sashimi which is already rice-free)
  • Avoid ordering rolls that have "tempura" in the name. This means that it has been deep fried.
  • Be conservative with soy sauce because of the sodium content... avoid the bloat!
