Best Sushi Philadelphia

Best sushi in Philadelphia. Been to all the sushi places in Philly and this is by far the best. May not have the trendy atmosphere of other restaurants but does have the freshest, most delicious sushi around. Prompt, attentive and friendly staff. Must go.

Fantastic experience!

First time to Kisso--it was everything I could ask for and more! The service was phenomenal and the sushi was gorgeous! As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be delicious. Every bite was a flavorful mouth-gasm! The server was so prompt and personable and went out of her way to help us get something special. I would recommend Kisso to anyone. You can BYOB and the server recommended making reservations because its a small place that can get packed.

Great Experience

I visited Kisso's on Saturday night. It was my first sushi experience. Alex offered a very wide range of dishes stating with the very simple but elegant vegtable rolls and worked up to some of the more exotic things like squid and baby quail eggs.\r
It was a very casual and delightful experience and the food was excellant!\r
I can't wait to go back.

Amazing Service

The sushi was amazing. We ordered the S.S.T. Maki roll, the special roll with eel & avocado & tuna, and the yellowtail with scallions. Amazing. Our server was so nice. I mentioned on the phone that it was my boyfriend's birthday and asked if it was OK to bring a cake. I decided against it but when it came time for dessert, the waiter brought out a strawberry mochi with a candle in it for him. I ordered the green tea mochi which was very good. I have been here before a few times,...view more and enjoyed every experience, but this was exceptional.view less

Wasting $

The WORST japanese restaurant I've ever been in Philly.\r
waited over hour to get my dishes. nigiri and rolls are small, but pricy. \r
I would go other places such as Aoi

Excellent

We had our first Kisso experience just this past week. Seating was prompt, but we made reservations. It took a while to get our food but I believe that was because a party of 14 people were seated a few minutes before us and there were only 2 Sushi chefs. The management and our server were profoundly apologetic for the wait but the quality of the food (along with 2 bottles of Saki) made us quickly forget. The prices are reasonable and the selection is good. The servers were all excelle...view morent and made sure to point out each intricacy of the pieces that were served. We went with a party of four...a perfect number for this tiny place. Be sure to make reservations and bring your favorite bottle(s) of saki!view less

Best sushi in town

Kisso is my absolute favorite place to get dinner. A wonderful staff, lovely decor and relaxed atmosphere. Oh, and the food is delicious. Any time I have out of town guests who are sushi-friendly, I bring them to Kisso, and they are always impressed. The sushi chefs really know how to perfectly balance the flavors and textures of their dishes. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Sushi

I tried the place on a whim and had read favorable reviews. I was trying to not get my hopes up because I have had some great sushi in New York City and other places in Philadelphia and I wasn't entirely positive that this would compare. But I was really amazed with the food at Kisso. The sushi was fresh. The platters were definitely plentiful. My boyfriend has just started eating sushi and loves this place! He's a fan of the sashimi. I love the fact that it's a BYOB. It saves al...view moreot on drink costs. And it's nice to just relax and chat over dinner with a bottle of wine and not feel rushed out of the place. The servers are very nice too, which always adds to a pleasant experience. I have a few friends coming in from New York City this weekend and I'm going to take them here for dinner. I can't wait to go back!view less

Great place for wacky sushi rolls

When my boyfriend and I first visited, I ordered my usual all-sashimi plate. It was okay, but nothing to write home about and we sort of forgot about the place. Then, one night when we couldn't think of a good place to go, we landed up back at Kisso. I ordered the chef's choice sushi platter... and WOW! Unusual sushi that was unbelievably fabulous. My boyfriend was trying to steal the rolls off my plate and we were having chopstick wars. Now we go there pretty regularly. Last ni...view moreght we were starving and ordered just about everything off the menu (except sashimi), and it was all wonderful. Broiled eel, miso soup the way my dad makes it (lots of miso paste - yum!), grilled octopus, sushi rolls with heaven knows what in them, and a piece of broiled yellowtail to die for. Also, the BYO aspect is very welcome at helping to cut the cost of the dinner. My boyfriend remarked that we had probably ordered about $200 worth of food, but the bill was just $80 when it came (and we ate a LOT). Fantastic. I'm ready to go back tonight.view less

Delicious

I came here with a friend after visiting some galleries for First Friday. Great idea! This is one of my 2 favorite sushi places. I love the SS T maki roll. The staff is friendly and it is BYOB, what else can someone ask for?
