I enjoyed the lunch here, but would not come back for a sushi experience. The lunch special included multiple halves of rolls, but each roll is about half the size of what you're expecting from a regular sushi place. That said, I got the 3 roll lunch and was pleasantly satisfied. I got the shrimp tempura roll (half), spicy salmon... More

Mizu has a good service and great food. The waiter is very respectful and service is spot on. They have good lunch boxes so in case you want something else then sushi, you can count on them.

My husband and I went to lunch and one of the rolls we got was completely over cooked. I asked the waiter if we had to pay for this roll since it was not edible. Yes we did, all $14! If you order rolls here I would suggest not ordering any that need to be cooked. We will not be... More

First, this location is on south 20th street in the Rittenhouse area, NOT university city. That's a different location on 40th street posted under the name Mizu. We sat at the sushi bar and had a great experience watching the sushimaster do his thing. Highly recommend the My Girl, Ruby and American Dream rolls.

We had great meals at the Mizu Sushi Bar! The staff is very friendly and the food was excellent. They are also taking great care if you have any food allergies and you can also find great lunch specials from 12-3pm =)

Mizu University City at Penn is a small restaurant with 20+ some odd seats on 40th and Sansom. The staff is excellent, all very friendly and attentive to our needs. They do get busy with the college students so service can slow a bit but the staff try their best. The location is easy access and the restaurant, though small,... More

This is a great, little sushi spot with tasty, fresh and affordable sushi. You can get a seat on one of the four stools by the tiny and nicely decorated window (with traditional Japanese dolls) and observe the city while enjoying your meal. We loved the coziness of the place.

We had a great experience at Mizu. The place is super cozy. The rolls were fun and very well presented. The service was excellent. They were accommodating even though we showed up 5 min before closing. We didn't feel rushed at all. A must if you want sushi in Philly.

Good sushi, great prices and exceptionally friendly service. A no-brainer if you're looking for a great sushi bar in Oldtown.

Talking about the one on 20th and Walnut - service-wise (and sushi-wise) this one tops 'em all.
