the best experience ive had in center city and ive lived here for about a year now. very knowledgable staff, amazing service, modern yet cozy atmosphere. my waiter read off all the gf items to me and answered every question i had quickly and confidently. having severe celiac i havent had real authentic japanese food in over 2 years bc of so many situations of cross contamination, but here i felt safe. i waited 24 hrs before writing this review to say ive had absolutely no symptoms or reactions to the food. i highly recommend the entree: ishi yaki bop. expensive but totally worth it. everything on the menu is a work of art. i definitely plan on returning, the food was delicious! :)
Very knowledgeable staff. Phenomenal food. Expensive but worth it. Didn’t get sick.

Strike two in Philly. Staff is knowledgeable about gf / contamination issues but there are very few items that can be made gf. Been spoiled in CA where there are entire gf Japanese restaurants. Food/service was great, atmosphere a little to "hip" for this down to earth Bay Area foodie. Very good food -- needs to ditch soy and convert more menu items to better tasting Tamari! Food is five stars, just be prepared to only have four or five choices (two of which are salad!).
Very knowledgeable staff, incredible food!
