Been going here for several years and remain loyal. I love it here. I am a vegan and don’t want just a cucumber or avocado roll. This place thinks outside the box and really delivers in a big way. Vegan on Fire and Chao are my all time favorite rolls! This is a must go place to visit.

The food is of great quality. The servers are attentive. It is a small place, so it can get noisy if there are large parties there.

My partner and I came here to celebrate our anniversary and were both totally blown away. Tomo has some of the best vegan food I have had since becoming a vegan roughly four years ago - their vegan sushi offerings are all extremely creative and go well beyond the standard “vegan substitutes” fare you find at most restaurants these days. We can’t wait to go back again soon to try the ramen!

Best Chirashi tasted. Some fish were lightly grilled and other were serviced at proper temperature for optimal flavor. Seasoned ( sushi) rice was also flavorful.

Beautiful restaurant. I love the ambiance. The restaurant is much smaller than I thought it would be, but there’s outdoor seating as well, and while indoor the tables aren’t too close to others. I am vegan and wanted to visit because I heard in a television news report that the place is well known for their sushi. I was very pleased with my vegan sushi and my non-vegan friend was pleased with their sushi as well.

The vegan tuna, which is made with tomato, is AMAZING. My friend is not vegan and ordered the same roll with tuna and said he plans to get the vegan version next time. I can't say enough good things about this spot.

Great food—-perfectly prepared and presented. We sat outside at a sidewalk table and the ambiance was wonderful.

We couldn’t get a reservation at Morimoto and we were a little bummed out. This place was a great find—-just as good without the Michelin prices.

Fresh sashimi for great value. $30 chirashi may be considered on the high side but with 25 fresh sashimi pieces over optimal temperature and well prepared sushi rice is great value. My partner had tonkatsu ramen and I had a taste of it. It’s good but not the best I ever had. My recommendation is to stick their sushi and sashimi, which may be their specialty.

Tomo was outstanding. The service staff was welcoming and warm, and the food was incredible. We brought a bottle of wine and picked out two appetizers and three rolls. The Pork Gyoza was the best - I almost ordered another round. The edamame was perfectly cooked. The rolls were beautiful, fresh, and simply yummy. We will absolutely be back!

Very good sushi with large menu and lots of choices. The spicy crab salad and Margarita rolls were particularly noteworthy. Reasonably priced and very pleasant. Staff was friendly and sushi was creative and better than most other neighborhood places in town - certainly should be mentioned more often on lists of best sushi restaurants in Philly. We really enjoyed ourselves and have high standards having been to Japan and also frequented other more expensive Sushi restaurants in town.

Our first time at Tomo and already looking forward to another visit! The food was amazing and the staff was friendly. It felt intimate but also very vibrant and active.

It’s BYOB and there’s a beer deli on the same block.

It felt like a wonderful night out and we were shocked at how affordable it was!
