As an homegrown, urban educated & plain sushi fanatic -I have had it all from your cheapo-three role deal in downtown Philly to the high-end Morimoto's Omakase. Aki, out of them all has always been a favorite go to. Moving back to the area was bearable knowing I could have access to some freshly sourced, simply done, classic Japanese food... More

I totally recommend the spicy scallop roll. And anything from their extensive list of specialty rolls. Creative and delicious. Why only 3 stars then? The rice was dry. That's sushi 101. It should have been fresh. We did come during the off season, so the chef should just make smaller batches of rice so that they are fresh! Also, my... More

Its a very small place and when we came it was only the four of us and three people at the counter. Not only was the waitress a little on the confused side, but when she brought out what were clearly the wrong items, she blamed us for ordering them?? I asked to see her note pad and reviewed it...

It's the worse sushi place I've ever been. I've never seen sushi that overpriced. All the portions were really small. The tuna seemed to be canned tuna. The almost forced us to tip more than 15%. Stay away from that place !

The atmosphere is quaint and fun. Though the dining room is small, rarely do I ever have to wait. Truly enjoy eating here.

We were so pleased with our choice for our group of 8 (we called ahead, it is a small place, they'll take reservations for groups over 6). The sushi and all other choices were really first rate. The restaurant is at 2724 Main St, the eastern side of the downtown area, not 324 as some websites list it.

We've eaten here twice and both times we were quite pleased. It's not of the caliber of the big cities but it's really quite good. Someone wrote on here that it doesn't compare to Tokyo, are you kidding? Get real, go to Tokyo if you want the best. The space is tight but we didn't go there for the decor.... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner after walking around town and sitting by the lake earlier in the evening. Food and service were excellent.
