An ultra-modern oasis in welcoming University City, Pod bends time, bringing fun-filled, futuristic dining into the present.
The action starts in the lounge, where guests gather to sip colorful cocktails, people-watch and catch up with friends. Lunch and dinner guests settle into pulsating, color-changing cocoon booths or pull up seats at the bustling sushi bar, where a conveyer belt delivers precise cuts of sashimi, nigiri and maki to eager eaters. But the shareable family-style menu covers more than just Japan, pulling from the delectable cooking of China, Vietnam, Korea and more — a true celebration of international flavor. Stimulating the eyes, ears and palate, a meal here is a transporting blast into the unknown.
Immerse yourself in a fun and futuristic dining experience at Pod in University City on Penn’s campus. Indulge in an imaginative menu of Asian delights which includes sushi served from a conveyor belt and colorful cocktails sure to please.
