Great location. Teeny, tiny restaurant (maybe 4-5 tables). They offered very reasonable sushi/sashimi. I had the Miso Soup, Seaweed Salad and the sashimi platter. All seemed very fresh, very flavorful and really hit the spot. Place is tiny, clean, but definitely not fancy. They do...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.

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...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...More
