We have sampled sushi in many world cities and are always pleased to return to this Philadelphia gem. The food is always fresh, well presented and of the highest quality. This is our favorite restaurant and has been for 20 years. Over that time they...More

The service in the restaurant was excellent and the food was tasty. Not the best Japanese I have ever had but good. If you want food other than raw sushi, there is plenty from which to choose.

The sushi here is excellent quality. The presentation is creative and interesting. This was our first trip here. It has a definite local vibe, but the staff was very friendly and helpful even though we were obviously not regulars. I had a sushi sashimi combo...More

Love Kisso Sushi! In the city where lots of sushi places come and go, charge high prices purely because they can, and offer low quality fish, this place breaks the mold. I lived in Seattle for 6 years, where the fish is freshest and sushi...More

We stumbled upon this place while waking around. The atmosphere is very calm and inviting. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our waiter was very kind and friendly and he gave great roll suggestions (try the half and half). Overall, if we ever make...More

The Chef is masterful. He will improvise textures, flavors, and tastes to deliver an innovative dining experience. Yes think of Kisso as an old jazz club. The maestro is behind the sushi bar picking up inspiration from the light glistening outside from sounds and smells....More
