1225 Raw, located in Philadelphia's renowned Stetson building on 1225 Sansom Street has been steadily growing after five years of hard work, customer loyalty, and good fortune.

Between our exotic sushi bar, traditional hot entrees, or overstuffed specialty rolls, you're guaranteed to find something you love. The fifteen feet glass bar houses an impressive shelf of exotic sakes that caters to new tasters as well as sake connoisseurs.

While you dine, take in the view of Japanese lamps floating down from the bamboo ceiling, or step outside into our private outdoor courtyard and lounge under the stars.

Great sushi and bento boxes! Went for happy hour. Ended up ordering off the menu and glad I did. Delicious Japanese food. Excellent sushi. Peaceful atmosphere.

Good sushi at this price point. The new expanded menu is interesting. I came in to try the new and delicious Salmon Maze. The beef negimaki is always special. The wait staff was polite and friendly. I’ll be back for lunch.

Service is usually slow, and sometimes the staff isn't too friendly. Food is always excellent, and cocktails are fantastic!

Delicious as always! Good quality sushi at a reasonable price point, with tons of other interesting menu options. Cool ambiance/décor, friendly and helpful service (they even let me charge my phone). Took a few minutes to be seated, but we were late so not their fault.

The food was excellent. The Bento Box was very filling and had a little bit of everything in it. I had the salmon teriyaki and it was grilled to perfection.

We made a reservation for 12 pm and no one was there. Turns out they open at 2 pm. Such a waste of time. They need to get their reservation system in better order.

It was restaurant week and they had an opening at the time we wanted. What a great find! The food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. The Zushi was so good and the Ramen with pork broth was excellent. Our dessert, vanilla ice cream tempura, was a great ending. I highly recommend this place.

Raw is the place where my sushi loving husband can be completely satisfied while my seafood allergy is fully addressed and I still have plenty of options on the menu.

This is our go to sushi place. The owner (or manager?) was very accommodating on a bitter cold night and moved us away from the door at the front of the restaurant to the back. Service is pretty good. I love spicy tuna but the spice they use is a little too spicy. I still get it, but I make sure to plenty of water.

Food was average, some original ideas, large portions but noise level was uncomfortably high, tight quarters and food was not that good. Uninteresting and repetitive.

I made a reservation on OpenTable but the restaurant was closed. Somebody needs to adjust the hours and not accept reservations for a time when the restaurant is closed.

This was very disappointing night. The door was open to the patio and it was 58 degrees we had to eat dinner with our coats on. The service was the worst....15 minutes to get the drink after it was ordered. Food was good but there is a lot more that goes into a good dining experience that just food. Go somewhere else.

Great selection of sake and sushi. I had the korean rice bowl and it was delicious. The server made the meal by guiding us the whole way and even offering up great advice for places to hit up afterwards. We were in town visiting so when we go back up we'll make sure to visit.
