    A friend recommend this place to me. She couldn't stop raving about the food. And now I understand why. We were a party of 9 and the service was great. They offered to place our bottles on ice until we were ready to start drinking.. I had the TNT roll, garlic and shrimp noodles, crab fried rice, and the wings.. and everything was delicious!!!!

    When my son and I arrived for a 4pm reservation, we were, quite frankly, a little nervous about staying. We were the only diners in the place and when we entered, it had a kind of funky smell. I think the air was turned up after we were seated. Anyway, we took our chances and we are still talking about how good the food was. For a little joint in Northern Liberties we ate some pretty terrific sushi! I had the pho and it was outstanding as well. We were pleasantly surprised and plan on going back next time we are in that part of the city. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. We were also happy they had the World Cup on the big screen. The food was awesome and VERY REASONABLE!

    Food selection and variety at this restaurant is very good, mixing Chines, Japanese, Thai, Korean and Vietnamese influences well, although it is not a fusion cuisine. Prices are moderate, as well and portions are ample. The food was good and service attentive, the only part I found lacking was the ambiance. From the buildup, I would have expected a more posh setting, but we had a good time anyway. I would recommend it as a good place to stop and get a meal, but not necessarily as a "destination" restaurant. If you go, try the bubble teas. Very creative.

    A group of six of us went for dinner on a Saturday night. Plenty of seating, not too noisy. Overall, it was good, but nothing special. They were out of the lettuce wraps. The appetizers were good, the mei fun was very good, but the sushi was pretty much bland and flavorless. A bit disappointing.

    I was so happy to find this place. Since I don't drive it was close to public transportation and they did not have me waited long. Everyone was nice and the atmosphere was great.

    The food was phenomenal, the service was excellent, the food came out quick and in rather large portions, and you can't beat the price! We will definitely frequent this spot more now that we have tried it.

    My girl friend and I just graduated from Temple and were seeing each other for the last time before she leaves for Stanford, CT and me to NYC. KenShin gave us a great place to meet and enjoy good food and relive memories. She likes chinese food and I love sushi, so who could not have asked for a better place!
