This sushi restaurant has a friendly staff who remembers you each visit. The restaurant (during non-coronavirus times) is BYOB and a great spot for date night. I highly recommend this to anyone!

Very extensive menu. Many unusual rolls though we are not roll eaters. We have an entree which also comes with soup and a salad. Plentiful portion cooked to order and taste. BYO. Parking is sometimes a problem as it is on street. They also do...a big take out and delivery business. The owner comes to the table to ask how you like the food. Dessert is a small candy bar. Price is very reasonable for the amount of food you get.More

I called from Montreal to reserve and find a way to pay for my friends birthday dinner, who lives in Philadelphia. After some research I found Koto Sushi, and called on a whim. Julian answered and was very polite on the phone, took time to...hear what I had hoped for, and then provided a way for me to pay . When my friends arrived, their table was reserved, the food delicious and plentiful, and the cake just perfect. It was very easy to organize this whole thing due to the efficiency and friendly way of Julian. Thank you,again, for making this happen. I am sure my friends will return on their own soon enough. All the best to this restaurant. My friends loved the atmosphere and variety.More

A bit slow on service but very friendly and really good food. The chef came out and spoke with us, very friendly. Would go back

A wonderful find on the street of Jewelers. Wonderful food prepared to order and the owner/chef comes out and thanks his customers that are eating there. They offer a wide variety of rolls and sushi. We order the dinners. We had a Chicken Katsu and...a Habachi Salmon. Both were cooked to taste and were accompanied by a salad and miso soup. Also BYOB. They seem to do a large take out and delivery business as the phone is constantly ringing. A wonderful place at a very reasonable price.More

Had dinner for 4 here on Saturday night, it wasn’t very crowded as it’s located on a street that is very quite at night. There wasn’t very many options for young kids but mine did fine with miso soup and chicken tempura, the sushi was...fantastic and pretty reasonably priced. It’s BYOB which my wife and I loved!More

We had a nice dinner with friends on a Sunday night. The restaurant is comfortable and not over crowded. We ordered soup, two appetizers, and four rolls, plus hot tea. Cost per couple, just under $50. The sushi was good, but not quite as good...as my local sushi restaurant. It was not quite excellent, but still tasty.More

A quiet Sunday night on Sansom Street with all the jewelers closed. There were only a few others eating in; they do a large take out and also looks like they deliver. Food is cooked to order, fresh, tasty and very moderately priced. We found...them with a Groupon and have returned. Well worth going. Chef brought out his home made whitefish salad for us to taste. A much different and great tasting whitefish salad one gets in a deli or diner.More

This place isn't fancy at all but the Service and the Food are so amazing and fresh. Dress casual and enjoy the great food and low key atmosphere. We are going back for sure. Groupon deal can be applied to the entire menu unlike few...other places we have been to which was disappointing but this place is little hidden jewel.More

Everyone here was very kind and accommodating! Food is good and prices are good. Very cozy place! Casual and great for a quick bite. Skeptic at first but worth it! About a three minute walk from Independence Mall.
