  • Worth walking the extra blocks

    Fuji is just far enough away from the business epicenter on Market street that many will pick other, closer spots before reaching here. However, it's worth the walk. Fuji is tucked away behind an unpretentious entrance, but inside it's welcoming, well laid out and comfortable. Counter service in the front, tables in the back where it's quiet and conducive to conversation. The menu is more than ample and the food is very well prepared and presented. I'll be back for certain

  • Definitely lived up to its reviews
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/21/2014
    Saw the reviews and gave it a try. Was happy went with the recommended "fixed price 5 courses". Especially the early courses-nothing like the "dinners" usually get. The spicy Miso soup instead of generic not only was sweat and spicy but came with straw mushrooms floating on top, perfectly cooked piece of shrimp, oyster, calamari and scallop. The salad followed-not the bland iceberg with standard dressing but mixed greens with scattered sashimi pieces-wonderful. Then the appetizer(note for each course there were ~3 choices) the salmon skin over a different set of greens. By now getting full but had the recommended mushroom sea bass-large piece of perfectly done fish. Didn't need/want dessert but enjoyed the assorted ice cream balls.

    We had a wonderful dinner here! The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. The waitresses all wear Japanese traditional outfits. It's a beautiful restaurant. Some of our party did the al a carte sushi rolls, salads, and soups. I had the special $35 fixed price five course meal that was just magical. The sea bass with mushrooms just melted in my mouth. The portion was so large I had to take it home. To finish it off we had green tea ice cream. This was our first time here and we will definately be back! What a great place!

    So to start out, the look as we pulled up looked like a quick in and out bar and also it was way overpriced. Fish didn't look great but ate it anyway. Spent my anaversary night in the bathroom, so did my fiance. Menu is way overpriced for the quality. Wine list is very limited. (5 wines) food was served one after the other without any time to even breathe. We were in and out in under an hour. It was not as described, best in nothing. Was highly disappointed.

    We've been to Fuji Mountain a number of times and have found the sushi to be delicious and well prepared. The service is always impecable. The noise level is quiet and it's good for an intimate meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great sushi restaurant that offers food at a terrific value.

    We rarely eat Japanese food, and enjoyed Fuji Mountain. Food is not in copious amounts, moderately priced, and we felt lucky to dine there with an on-line voucher that made the bill easier to take. Food is fine, ambience and service very comfortable.

    Sushi was wonderful as was edamame (not too salty) and the vegetable dumplings. Sashimi very good too. Service not great in that part of our table received their apps long before we did. Overall good food for the money. Would definitely go back there. Reservation staff was wonderful.

    This is my second time dining at Fuji Restaurant and still loving it just like the 1st time. First time was with my buddies and second time, I decided to take my family out and they all love it as much as I do. You all definitely should give it a try at this restaurant. Good food and good service, worth every single penny.

    For a better sushi experience, skip the teeny tiny, overhyped Vic's and come to Fuji Mountain. The space is very clean, inviting, and relaxing. No sitting on top of each other. The sushi quality is just as good as Vic's and they offer a larger variety of traditional Japanese dishes.

    Came here for a second visit, this time for Restaurant Week. The sashimi is fresh and to die for. I also had the Kinoko Soup and that was very good and flavorful. And red bean ice cream? Yes. Very nice environment and staff. Elevator ambiance music in the background lets you know it's a real and authentic Japanese restaurant. Only complaint was that the place was almost empty and the wait was a bit slow for lunch... probably spent a full 1.5+ hours there and we didn't mosey around. But the food made up for it. Mmm so good!

    Dined on 1/20/2014
    I was very disappointed in this restaurant. I don't know how it's supposed to be one of the best Japanese restaurants in Philly. One of my friends had told me it was the worst Japanese he had ever been to and I didn't want to believe him. I wouldn't go that far, but I won't go back. The food was just ok (we had sushi and sashimi) but did not look or taste amazing. There are barely no gluten free options on the menu. The soda was not free refill. It's overall way too expensive for what it is.

    I really liked this restaurant, and we would definitely go back, but the service was a bit haphazard. For example, there were five of us at dinner, and the waiter took the order of four of us and then walked away...totally missed the fifth person! It was busy, but not that busy! That having been said, the food was really good, and fit the bill for the vegans in our party and those that eat meat. Maybe the waiter was having a bad night...I'm more than willing to give it another chance.

    We were looking for a place that could please both of my children. One is a vegetarian and the other is a food adventurer. This restaurant fit the bill. The staff was very pleasant and service was superb. One child was able to have sushi, the other had vegetable tempura. I had the teriyaki steak. We were all delighted.

    BentoVIP
    Dined on 10/9/2013
    I like their authentic Japanese lunch. However, in the past 2 years, it seems like that they have been reducing the portion and increase the price. The mackerel lunch used to come with Tofu, miso soup and 2 pieces of mackerel, now just comes with Miso soup and you only have 1piece. The price is 30% higher. With smaller portion and higher price, it is hard for me to go more often.

    Great Japanese food, including sushi and a few dishes I hadn't seen before. Tempura was great, hot and cold appetizers were terrific and, unlike many Japanese restaurants, they had a decent dessert menu, including tempura ice cream, mochi ice cream and tempura bananas. Service was gracious and fast, including waiting for the check -- a pet peeve of mine. No problems, no flaws, just great food in a beautiful, traditional room. Great location, 20th and Chestnut.

    It's hard to decide which rolls to order - they all taste so good. We enjoyed two of them - cucumber and salmon/eel - as well as excellent miso soup and salad. We also had fried veg gyoza. I think the veg gyoza would be better steamed. If you want fried gyoza, I would recommend a different filling.

    Three of us had bento boxes for lunch and we enjoyed them very much. The sea bass was particularly delicious. The service was a bit slow because I don't think they had enough servers that day for the crowd. Some days it is not as crowded. I have been there many times and would definitely return and recommend it to others.
