We have been to many restaurants over time and for us it is all about service. It was valentines day and obviously we decided to drive to Philadelphia because that is where I went to my Grad school. It was valentines day and our anniversary and I googled couple of places on open table and reserved this one. Firstly, if you are not local, then get ready for a wild goose chase,because they do not have a board by the way (Likes of Nobu have name boards and these guys do not even come close). Secondly, when we arrived, the host made us wait because she messed up with our reservation, by the way this in spite of giving a call 4 hours before to confirm our open table reservation. Secondly, we were put with this insane waiter who thought he was god's gift to earth by showing his attitude (Even folks who appear on a GQ cover page do not throw those tantrums, so you are a "0", so take a break looser). We ordered our food and he was clearly doing some kind of back talk that upset me to the core, but I just left it off because I still had some class left in me. Finally our food arrived, those two stars are for the food. Hardworking Itame trying to do the best sushi and the sushi was decent So in essence, as the saying goes, if there is a way that you can tumble your business from cloud 9 to ground 0, hire few waiters like this and they will make sure they will do the honors. PATHETIC SERVICE.

The food was amazing. I have only had bad experiences with sushi but this place changed my mind. I had the Maki combo. It tasted fresh and yummy. My favorite part was desert. The green tea ice cream is the BOMB! If you're trying sushi for the first time go here! My only problem is that I'm used to being greeted and taken to seats when at restaurants. I just walked in confused not sure of which table I could be seated at. Also my waiter was very off. Like I felt like he wasn't sure of what was going on

Good sushi. Low key atmosphere, but can get loud sometimes. Make a reservation on the typical nights out.
