The service wasn't the best. I order calamari and it was tiny. The sushi was just okay. When I asked the waiter for taryaky sauce he didn't know what it is.

I wrote a previous review and didn't realize that I've been frequenting Zento since 2012! It's still a fantastic place! Intimate and quiet. You'd go right past it if you didn't know it was there. Philly "celebs" (i.e, sports ppl) frequent there so they can...More
