Great sushi at my family’s favorite Japanese restaurant in Philadelphia. Courteous staff, great sashimi cuts and food always looks and smells fresh. Looking forward to the next visit with family and treating them to Hikaru.

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!

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...More
