Food Quality: Fantastic Sushi with a more exotic selection than most establishments. Finding O-Toro (Fatty Tuna) is never a problem here. The appetizers are great, but are not worth the month. As with any city-restaurant, appetizers empty the wallet before you fill your stomach.

Food Presentation: Pod’s presentation stood out for many of it’s appetizer dishes. The Kobe Beef seared on river stones was absolutely beautiful, as was the Lobster Spring Roll Dish. As for the sushi… each piece was uniformly cut and well arranged.

Service: Service is definitely Pod’s strength. Each waiter is knowledgeable of the food and the ones I’ve had in the past were quite courteous. Furthermore, they even clean your table and provide new silver wear between each meal.

Atmosphere: Absolutely one of the coolest places to be in Philadelphia on a Friday night. Due to it’s close proximity to Upenn, the crowd is quite young and the bar area is always hopping. Finally, the Pod design is extremely chic and modern. Check it out on the website!

Overall Impression: Definitely a stimulating experience. The food was quite above average and the service and atmosphere is what really made the restaurant a place worth visiting several times. If you just want great sushi , Pod isn’t a bad place to start… however, combined with its cool ambient feel, Pod definitely ranks in the top 5 of Asian restaurants in Philly.

Another one of my faves! You can never go wrong when dining at a Starr Restaurant. Great place to hit for some sushi and a few drinks with your friends.

Okay, I’ve only ordered one thing here, the miso-glazed Chilean sea bass, but it’s so good I don’t care. It comes with miso soup and the house salad (mesclun greens tossed with Japanese ginger dressing and topped with these incredibly tasty dried strips of what might be plaintains?) and is served on white rice (you can substitute brown rice) and some vegetable similar to green beans but so good I don’t know what they are.

Besides this awesome dish, there’s also a sushi bar with plates of sushi that you can pluck off the revolving conveyor belt. The decor is really hip and modern yet the prices are definitely reasonable.
