Clean restaurant, chefs are great, and the wait staff is great. Sushi, sashimi and rolls are made by experts. Prices are resonable for the quality you get. Nice place!

I had dinner there with a few friends a week or so ago. I had tempura seafood. There was plenty of sushi and other stuff for the table, so I got to try a few things. Topped that up by pretty awful green tea ice cream. What can I say. Ginza this place ain't. Won't stay in business for long... More

Hakiru serves great food every time. Go to Hikaru, have fun. Paying $14+ for a hamburger is typical in Philadelphia restaurants. Consistantilly great food, service and very clean restaurant is what you will find.

My parents had bought us a Restaurant.com certificate good for $25. We only had to spend another $12 to use the $25 so we figured why not? We each got a seaweed salad and then split a softshell crab roll and a broiled eel roll (I forget the names they gave them). They actually had 3 different kinds of eel... More

It a very nice restaurant with great service. But I found the food to be ok. I think that it is not made by Japanese. I think they are Chinese. It's ok to visit if you are walking south street and would like some sushi.

Finally! A sushi place that offers an affordable hot sake... $4.75/carafe. The fish is always fresh and the service is wonderful.

I love this place, it is one of the small handful of sushi places I will eat at in this city. The rolls are very fresh, and most of them are Hikaru's own touch. For example..south street roll is amazing, try it!

I went to Hikaru with my boyfriend and brother who just moved to the neighborhood from our hometown near Boston. The waitress was really sweet and helpful, she happily answered all of our questions and made some recommendations for us, including some of the tuna that came in that morning, which melted in our mouths. We got a variety of... More
