Did you know there are different takes on sushi? It’s a traditional Japanese dish, but of course our Delco favorites often put their own spin on it.
Another fact: sushi isn’t just raw fish. There’s something for everyone, with cooked, vegetable, vegan and gluten-free options. Just ask when you make reservations or order takeout.
Lots of options in Delco? That’s how we roll (pun intended!). Stay tuned for Round 2 of our sushi roundup!
This award-winning restaurant mixes traditional Japanese with contemporary — new Asian at its best. Try signature rolls, like surf-and-turf with seared Kobe beef, lobster tempura, avocado, soy wrap, fried shallots, melted Gruyere and eel sauce — or any number of classic rolls. Non-sushi entrees and a full bar, too! Open Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 pm., then 4:30 to 9:30 p.m., Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., then 4:30 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 4:30 to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., then 4:30 to 9 p.m..

Make sure to ask for the Japanese menu to take in all the sushi! A la carte, hand rolls, vegetable rolls, and for those who prefer cooked: non-raw rolls. The winner? It’s a tie between king crab leg California roll and jumbo roll (futomaki), which is as the name states: bigger than the rest! Full Chinese menu is also available. Open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
6 W. State St., Media, (610) 892-0115.
Simply put: The selection here is vast. Let’s give a nod to our vegetarian friends with these creative selections: green caterpillar roll made with avocado, cucumber and an assortment of veggies, and a sweet potato roll. (Spoiler alert: That’s our go-to.) Check out the signature rolls and combos, and for those who don’t indulge in sushi, a full menu that also includes Vietnamese delicacies. Open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; closed Tuesday.
