Still a great option for delicious food.

I stopped for a quick lunch on a Tuesday. The amazing interior design still serves as a compliment to an excellent meal. I ordered the Chirasi Sushi, one of their lunch set options. It was absolutely fantastic. It came accompanied with a delicious miso soup and house salad. This place maintains its... read more

The DRY AGED NEW YORK STRIP STEAK is to die for. The pork belly, sushi / rolls and desserts are great. The atmosphere is nice, but too loud for a romantic dinner. Service was decent. Overall, would definitely recommend this place.

We went there for a family celebration, last day of our vacations in Philadelphia. The ambiance was very nice and the service a little bit cold but very efficient. The sushi and sashimi was good but not excellent, the calamari tempura salad was less than average, miso soup was just good, edamame was not good and the desserts (ice cream... More

The service was good and the food was excellent. I opted for the lunch tasting menu versus al carte menu items and was not disappointed at all, it was delicious! It comes with 7 courses that truly allow you to explore a variety of flavors. I also did the Morimoto fukumitsuya sake flight and very much enjoyed it. The server... More
