This place is great! My boyfriend had the beef bolgokee and he can’t stop talking about how good it was. I had the spicy tuna, bagel, and shrimp tempura rolls and they were delicious! Super good food and inexpensive! The servers were all very nice and bubbly. Love that they are a byob. We will definitely be back

Went for new years and the wait staff seemed unprepared for a busy night but the food was very good. Sat downstairs in the cellar which didn’t have a great ambience, but overall it was very good and i will be going back (when it’s less crazy)

I love Seiko - great sushi, modern cozy atmosphere and it’s byob. My go-to items: Salmon Skin Salad, Northern Liberties, Super White Tuna, Alaskan. And like 10 more things. I also order delivery 2x/ month from Fishtown. Deliver is always under 45 mins.

Love the Northern Liberties area so decided to try Seiko! Beyond pleasantly surprised with our experience. The wait staff were so professional, pleasant and fun! The Chef and Owner- Simply Awesome!! Everyone was so personable which made my brother’s birthday outing a memorable one. And they even threw in a dessert birthday plate and Saki to boot! Food and dessert was to die for- absolutely yummo! I can’t sing the praises of this restaurant high enough! Can’t wait to return! #LoveSeiko

Service was great! It was quiet around 5pm on a Saturday, but once the crowd came in the noise got a tad bit overwhelming for conversation. The food was really good. Their veggie tempura is perfect. The veggie dumplings (fried) are crispy and packed with flavor. The seating is a little tight but that's pretty common in Philly. I'd go again.

We were heading to the Fillmore for a concert and we found this spot via our searches since it was nearby the venue. Cool, hip little spot that serves really good sushi and other Japanese fare. The group got a few different sushi rolls, edamame, gyoza, and nigiri sushi and all were very well prepared and tasty. I got the shrimp tempura udon noodle soup and it was definitely one of the better bowls of udon noodle soup I've had in the states.

Prices were reasonable especially for the city and the service was very friendly and prompt. I would recommend this spot to any of my friends.

I was surprised that this restaurant had 4.5 star ratings on Open Table. I went here for my birthday as I needed to book a restaurant very late for a last-minute change of plans. The service was great but I was very disappointed by the food. The fish was not as fresh as I'd like. For cheap sushi, this works but this was not what I had in mind for my birthday or a very high rating. Our waitress was awesome though!

We were looking for a sushi place that we could walk to/in our neighborhood. Seiko was the perfect spot. Everything we ordered was delicious and we didn't have any leftovers. We definitely would recommend this place to anyone.

Good food, good service, accommodating even with small last-minute changes in reservation, good/comparable value in price of food, several vegetarian options, BYOB, street parking in front of restaurant on 2nd St on a Saturday night and some parking on Green St that is 2 hours until 6:30PM. Nice walkable neighborhood on 2nd St. Logistically very convenient. First floor bathroom looks wheelchair accessible for lateral transfers. Downstairs has karaoke space and more private dining space with bathroom down there.

The food is inexpensive. Cooked dishes were done well but the sushi did not taste great. Somewhat not fresh. The service was decent. And the BYOB option was great.

The rolls were too big and not appetizing. There was too much sauces and you couldn't really taste the fish. Very disappointed.

Entrees came out ten minutes a part. We watched everyone eat individually while meals came haphazardly. My appetizer never showed up, so I cancelled it after finishing my entrée. Quality of food was good, but service was poor.

Sushi was great! You could really tell the fish was fresh. They took the time to carefully craft the rolls and everything was delicious! The service was great too! They are BYOB but they have karaoke downstairs! We really enjoyed our date night! The owner came around to the tables to check in and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. That was very thoughtful and professional.

I go here with my wife and adult sons whenever we want the best sushi and tempura around. Sit at the bar and talk to the chefs. We let them use their artistic skills and make us whatever they want. The results are spectacular and the bill is always less than we expect.
