We visited Sono for the 1st time in years! Total cultural overload. You must try the Japanese seating as well as a variety of the plates - not cheap but well worth it. Will be back - well done guys!

Went herecrecently for a business meeting and it is very popular with the business community for that purpose. Lots of bento box choices all of high-quality and pretty well priced for a Central City restaurant

I was treated to a fantastic Japanese meal for Mother's Day at this restaurant. We all ordered the tasting menu of 9 dishes and washed it all down with smooth sake and green tea. What an excellent choice and we were so happy we got in. Book early as this place is always packed. Love the service too.

There are two venues for Sono in Brisbane, the city restaurant is highly functional but not what I would consider a romantic, plush or overly comfortable environment. Nonetheless the food was excellent, the service swift and attentive and very reasonable prices. I would certainly return, but would like to try the riverside venue on my next visit

We ordered a variety of items... More

Just have dinner at this restaurant. It is tucked away at the corner of Queen St and Edward St, so almost miss it. It is very busy even for a Monday night! The waitresses converse in Japanese so it is an authentic Japanese restaurant with a fantastic menu selection of sushi, sashimi, tempura and udon etc. I choose a udon... More

We stopped in for lunch on a recent Friday without a booking and did manage to score a traditional table. I opted for the Sushi Bento Box while my husband opted for sashimi. Both lunches were very filling. The food is excellent without being exciting and the service very clinical, with very little fuss.

Excellent Japanese meal and experience with very attentive care from the waitresses. We had the house sampling menu. All the courses were prepared and presented with immaculate attention to detail.
