I love this place. The 3 roll special is an incredible deal and you'd be hard pressed to find better sushi for the price anywhere in the city. You might think the portions will match the price but I always end up quite sated. There's a good selection on the menu and there are always interesting special rolls up on the chalkboard. The staff is always friendly too. Space is limited so it's not the kind of place to go with a group of friends. I've never actually eaten in but like to grab some sushi to go and feast in Rittenhouse Square when the weather is nice. I work 3 blocks from Izumi in South Philly but when I have the time I'll always choose to make the trek to grab lunch from Vic instead.

YOU HAVE TO TRY THE OCEAN BROTHER ROLL! I go here every friday for lunch with some friends. As much as I want to try other things, I ALWAYS get the Ocean Brother Roll. It literally melts in your mouth. It is absolutely amazing. I wish it was a little cheaper because i would definitely get it more than I already do. Sometimes I go twice a week just for this roll. I've had other specialty rolls, and they've all been awesome. And I've also tried the 3 roll special. I wasn't impressed with the 3-roll special. Not good quality really, but what do you expect? But if you get a specialty roll you wont be let down! I've had a bunch of their rolls and I just love their amazing selection. Plus they are all very friendly! I love Vic's! Believe me about the Ocean Brother Roll though, it's life changing. =)

the actual restaurant is very small but has a fun sit at the counter and watch the sushi chefs kind of vibe. delivery wise-- the best. easy to order, quick, no mistakes and always fresh! can't beat the 3 rolls for $10.95 deal. favorite delivery

I get the three-roll special at least once a week, and it's always fresh, delicious, and, at $11, a fantastic bargain. I've also tried their specialty rolls and appetizers, as well as their miso soup. All are very good. The place is a little cramped, but inviting nonetheless. And the chefs and the staff are quite friendly. A must try, if you haven't already.

My wife and I consistantly order from this place and it never lets us down. Good food at good prices and they offer prompt delivery too. we have never eaten in the place so do not think that our 3 rating for atmosphere is a judgement, I just did not want to give them a 0.

You sit at the counter and watch the chefs create your meal, which will be beautiful as well as delicious. Very reasonably priced. You sit next to other customers, so it's probably not the best place for an intimate conversation. But the ambience is very pleasant.

i stopped in philly for nearly 3 weeks over christmas and newyear 08/09 and visited alot of resturants, vic was one of my favourites. Its unpretensious and excellent value, the fish was fresh and prepared right infront of you. Its difficult to get a place to sit, theres just a small area that sits about 6 or 7 people, so if your after a romantic intimate meal,this isnt realy the right place. Id recommend vic for take out quick good value eats if your lucky enough to get seated.
