It was my first visit to Sushi Planet and it was such a great experience! We went at 4pm on Sunday so we were the only patrons eating in, although there were several customers for take-out. The waiter was so attentive and pleasant. He immediately gave a us waters and fresh homemade pickles. I asked if they have pots of jasmine tea or just cups. He said they serve by the cup but he can make us a pot! After ordering 4 pretty basic rolls the waiter brought us out a complimentary appetizer. I'm unsure of what it technically is called but it was 4 pieces of fresh salmon dressed with some oil, soy, scallion, and capers. VERY good! When we got our entree it looked beautiful and tasted the same! Like I said, we got basic stuff - spicy tuna/avacado, yellowfin/scallion, spider roll, and shrimp tempura. ALL DELICIOUS. After finishing the chef and/or waiter brought us out a complimentary "dessert" which was a piece of watermelon with a piece of fish - sorry unsure what kind! - and dressed with a lemon-y onion-y light sauce or foam. It was also very good. Also, the price was very reasonable. It was under $30 total for all we got. My boyfriend said he doesn't ever remember feeling so appreciated as a customer! The atmosphere was relaxed, cozy and clean. The music was cool and playing off one of the guys itunes. It might be difficult to bring a large party here unless arrangements are made. I noticed one large table for 8 in the back of the restaurant (could def squeeze 10) but the rest of the tables are 2 tops mostly. There is also a sushi bar with a few seats. I usually go to Wasabi house because it is so close to my apt - but they are closed on Sundays so decided to give this a whirl. It was definitely worth the walk! I'll def go back. They are also BYOB if you're having dinner.
I work at Jefferson Medical and a Bumblefish franchise just opened up two blocks from me. We've been waiting months for them to open, and the wait was worth it. They have dumplings with various dipping sauces, fried shrimp rolls, healthy snacks, and of course, sushi. Really, really great sushi for the price. Everything is made a few minutes ahead of time, so it's great if you're in a hurry. Sure beats the sandwiches I eat at our cafeteria!
Took my girlfriend here recently. The food itself was phenomenal...I love sushi and sashimi, and this joint ranks somewhere in my top 3. I strongly recommend the Kimono roll. The service was also wonderful, with all of the staff in a positive mood and personable. Add in the music and slightly dim lighting to create the perfect ambience, Yanako is without question my favorite sushi joint in the Philadelphia area.
