Fuji Grill in Amherst, NY

Posted by tgott in GF Restaurants | GF WNY Dining
It’s been a few years since we’ve been to the Fuji Grill on Maple in Amherst, but I’m happy to report they as gluten-free friendly as I remember. Although the menu is not marked (which is a pet peeve of mine  – and it is currently not up online – another pet peeve), they are willing to accommodate gluten-free diners. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and basically told us we could order any sushi we wanted except for tempura. They would make changes if needed to anything. He brought us a bottle of gluten-free soy sauce to use as well.
We started with the chicken yakatori. The menu said it was chicken with vegetables but it just chicken skewers on lettuce. It had a nice flavor though and we enjoyed it. We also ordered miso soup and vegetable fried rice. The fried rice is fantastic here, fluffy and flavorful, with lots of vegetables. It’s not greasy and it’s not just tiny flakes of veggies just to live up to the name.
I ordered a lobster roll which was very large in diameter and satisfying. We also got a shrimp roll, which was smaller but a nice side.
The husband ordered  a large plate of sashimi and sushi which was beautifully presented.
For dessert we enjoyed green tea, mango, vanilla, and red bean mochi which is out of this world and not to be missed. I would definitely return here again. Service is a bit slow, but the food is excellent and we felt comfortable that everything got would be gluten-free.
