This was as good as it gets! Three of us went here for a birthday dinner and had the most pleasurable experience. From the moment the door opened we were welcomed by Michelle B and taken to our table. She came back to check on us numerous times. Our server, JD, was the most knowledgeable server I have ever met, especially on Saki! The food just coming and coming until we could not eat anymore. The decor is warm and interesting. Very popular place so get a reservation. Handicapped accessible and valet parking. You must go here for a special evening sometime. Thank you Michelle and JD for making our evening so exquisite.

Just a great venue. Staff was fabulous. Presentations were over the top. I was the lone non sushi lover in the crowd. More than enough to choose from. The foodies in the group were taking pictures!!

Such a great atmosphere- they have you once you enter plus the food is unique and holds its own!
Loved the cocktails! Recommend the Karai- vodka with cilantro & jalepeno.
We also loved the yellowtail tartare. Such good flavor! And the beef carpaccio was a hit too.
Our favorite sashimi was the special of the months - cherry blossom trout- wow! So fresh- almost melted in our mouths-
Spicy tuna and salmon rolls were also enjoyed.
For dessert we had a sorbet trio- coconut, pineapple & mandarin orange. Refreshing and tart!
Will definitely be back when we return to Philly.

We took the tasting menu (standard). Excellent variety of delicious food, based on Japanese cooking but expanded into wild fusion. Much sweeter than typical Japanese food (we had a Japanese in our group) but very delicate and interesting

We went here for my wife's birthday and it was a great choice. The food was awesome and they had several vegeterian options. The rolls was great and not just the typical avocado and cucumber. Their drinks are well made and not watered down. We will look to go here for another special occasion.
