I have tried many different Ramen places and this by far has been my favorite! The flavors of the Mayu tonkotsu ramen had my palate doing a dance. Hours after I left I could still taste the flavors of the ramen. Now let’s get started on the sushi. I have had superb sushi but this by far has exceeded any sushi I have ever had. The Tomo roll is to die for. I will defiantly be frequenting here.

I frequent Tomo a lot. Their choices of sushi, both traditional or vegan are outstanding. The atmosphere and ambiance stands out among competitors. Never let down from any food choice. Service is always courteous, top notch. I always love my experience. If you’re on the fence, jump already. You won’t be disappointed.

I'm vegetarian but my family isn't - this is an amazing place to get delicious vegan and vegetarian options alongside equally delicious non-vegetarian ramen and sushi.

The sushi was excellent. The seating was a bit tight. It was after 8 before the sound level was good for two on a date.

Our first time at Tomo. Reserved counter seats through OT and when I asked about an empty table was invited to sit there as long as we were leaving by the time it was needed for reservation. The service was warm, attentive and not intrusive. The food was delicious - both the rolls that we ate (spicy tuna, hamachi, salmon skin), the vegetarian steamed buns (soft, spicy and filling), and the vegetarian and chicken ramens, which were both incredibly filling, had a depth of flavor, and lots of noodles, chicken in veggies. Will definitely return!

We were visiting Philly from Minneapolis and the options for sushi were overwhelming so we landed on Tomo based on good reviews on a few sites. It lived up to the hype! Wonderful service. The sushi was absolutely delicious. We prefer a mix of simple maki rolls, nigiri and interesting rolls. Very fresh nigiri. We tried a few rolls we have never had and they were all soooo good. It's BYOB which made the check unbelievably reasonable. Highly recommend if you are in Philly!

Had a great dinner at Tomo on a Friday night. Staff was on point and super friendly. Menu was bigger than I expected. We both enjoyed our food and look forward to coming back to try more!

My new fav spot for awesome and different vegan sushi and ramen. A great little BYOB across from Betsy Rose house on Arch. It’s a bit small so I’d recommend a reservation though I have popped in and have never been sent away.

Unusual vegan yummy sushi at reasonable prices. Grab a beer next door.
