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.
