Hands down our go-to sushi spot in Philly. Our favorites on the menu: the Branzizzle, sesame Salmon, Kennet Square truffled mushroom roll, calamari salad with yuzu dressing. Tofu spiced doughnuts or sake to wrap.

The BENTO BOXES here for lunch are the perfect lunch. You receive soup, salad entree of your choice, I prefer the Shrimp Tempura Bento, and rice and edename. Excellent service in a very attractive setting and all for about $20

We booked dinner at Zama based on a recommendation from one of our most discriminating foodie friends. We have never thought sushi as a food category could be as artisanal and creative as these people saying menus proved: we ordered one at $55 and one...More
