When it comes to food-borne illnesses, we understand the importance of caution, especially regarding raw fish, meat, and poultry. While we take pride in our selection of fresh and high-quality ingredients, we recognize that some individuals may have specific concerns.

Our skilled chefs are trained in the art of sushi preparation and follow strict hygiene practices to minimize the risk of food-borne illnesses. We ensure that all our ingredients are handled with care and stored at proper temperatures to maintain their freshness. While we take every precaution to reduce risks, we do not recommend that pregnant women consume raw fish or undercooked food.

At Gokudo, we understand that food safety is a concern for our valued guests. We want to assure you that we prioritize your well-being and are committed to providing safe and delicious sushi options. Regarding concerns related to the contaminants stemming from Fukushima, it is important to note that the safety of seafood, including fish, is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. The FDA has stringent guidelines and regularly monitors imported seafood to ensure its safety. Based on their recommendations, seafood from the affected regions of Japan, including fish, is tested rigorously and must meet strict safety standards before it reaches our restaurant. Therefore, you can rest assured that the seafood used in our sushi is safe for consumption.
To further address your concerns, we prioritize your safety when it comes to mercury consumption. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides guidelines to minimize the potential risks associated with mercury in fish. According to their recommendations, individuals should limit their mercury consumption by choosing fish and seafood with lower mercury levels. At Gokudo, we are committed to offering a wide variety of seafood options, and our knowledgeable staff can guide you in selecting sushi choices that are lower in mercury content. We source our fish responsibly, and our suppliers adhere to strict quality standards to ensure the safety of our ingredients. Rest assured that your well-being is our top priority, and we take all necessary precautions to offer you sushi options that are both delicious and safe.
