This is hands down the best sushi in Philadelphia. The special rolls are excellent - I recommend the square sushi and the Flaming Dragon roll in particular. BYOB which is always nice - good atmosphere, great service. Somewhat expensive but definitely worth it! I go here once a week!

We grabbed a quick pre-movie bite at Zento and were lucky to get seats at the bar...reservations are accepted and recommended! The pricey but incredible kobe beef appetizer is worth the splurge, and the quality and ingenuity of the sushi is unbeatable. Great find!

I was hesitant to write a review of this place because it seems to be harder and harder to get a table here, but for good reason! My boyfriend and i eat here all the time, and it is always amazing. It is the best sushi in the city, hands down.

i have been wanting to try this place, so i went on a thursday night, which was good b/c it is very small and would be hard to get in on a fri or sat night. but it was probably some of the best sushi i've ever had! we had the "real" california roll made with king crab which was awesome! i usually don't get california roll b/c i hate that crabstick stuff. we also tried something different a sweet potato tempura roll which was really good. but my fav had to be the square tuna. it was sooooooo good! the tuna, eel and avocado were sliced very thin and the sauce was really good, the roll had a great sweet flavor and melted in your mouth! the service was also very good!

Zento is a Morimoto-quality experience at less than half the price. Chef Wibisono is truly an expert at sushi preparation, both the traditional Japanese style and his own, creative rolls. (Even if you usually don't like wacky rolls, TRY THESE... the chef has a knack for balancing unique flavors and textures.) It probably goes without saying that the fish is top quality. Plus the atmosphere is sophisticated yet welcoming, thanks to the chef and his friendly staff. Zento is the best sushi I have had outside of Tokyo!

My husband and I have tried nearly every sushi restaurant in the city since moving to Philadelphia last summer and Zento is hands down our favorite thus far. The maki is fresh, creative and delicious and the service is fantastic. It's a small restaurant which means you'll never have to wait forever for your dinner. We can't say enough great things about it. We've finally find "our sushi place!"
