Some friends recommended and I decided to go. Booked in advance, we brought our own wine and they helped us in everything. Amazing food and service. I strongly recommend.

Some of the best Japanese rolls you can find, can't rate it high enough. Thai food well worth a shot too. Service is friendly and helpful. Visited with my wife and baby daughter... and we all agreed we must go back. Highly rated.

Small Japanese style cafe, clean and neat, though it can get very tight in here quickly. Lunch is usually quick and easy, price is moderate. Suchi, Thai, and Japanese offerings. Good food and service.

We are still at the restaurant and taking the time to recommend it. We didn't expect to be this good but now is our favorite one in Philly.

I went here intending to order sushi but was talked into the Pad Thai with chicken. It came with noodles and it was delicious. When I go back to Philly, I plan to eat here again.

We were looking for a reasonable restaurant in Old City where we could take the kids. Roe fit the bill. The vegetable sushi was good and they have dumplings, which made the kids happy. I had the Massaman Curry and it was delicious. Others in...More
