This Center City sushi shop has a lot of neon lights, and there are pretty much zero rules about what you can bring in, how much noise you can make, or how many times you request that they change the playlist. They don’t have the best rolls in the city, but their spicy tuna and crunchy scallop rolls are decent, and they have lots of easily shareable appetizers like gyoza and vegetable tempura.
