We arrived without a reservation but happily sat up at the sushi bar.
Our appetiser platter was delicious and included per person an oyster with ponzu sauce, simmered pork with sweet soy, soft shell crab with shiso sauce, crab croquette and edamame.
We shared two mains of grilled eggplant with two kinds of miso paste and black cod marinated in special miso sauce. This was accompanied with rice and miso soup.
Our meal was excellent and the service of a very high standard.
Our only criticism is that the restaurant is very cramped.
We shall return.

Our lunch was absolutely beautiful and fresh. Well worth a visit. There is a great selection to choose from even for vegetarians.

I have nothing but praise for this fantastic restaurant. From the moment you enter, to the layout and ambiance, to the food itself and the service, my experience was faultless. It truly does not get much better than this.
This is one of two Sono restaurants in Brisbane and is the original one that started it all off.
The decor is modern Japanese with wooden seats cut into the floor that allows you to sit properly (great for those that find it difficult to sit on the floor or cross their legs) but get the full effect of traditional Japanese dining.
The waitresses are all in traditional dress and serve with the charm that is so true to the Japanese culture.
But it is the food that truly nails this place. Totally awesome. We chose a variety of dishes - the small seafood platter that features their super oysters with a variety of marinades and their incredible sashimi - just fantastic and the presentation was awesome, arriving on a chilled platter that literally smoked ice. We also chose one of the set boxes which provides a variety of tastes, including miso, salad, and we chose the one that featured gyoza and chicken karaage. Again simply delicious.
There is the most incredible menu of sake - I tried the cloudy complex one - sorry no idea what it was called - but was just delicious. You can order a range of carafe sizes with the smallest just right for one person.
I would go back to this restaurant again and again. Just loved it.

Even though some of the items in menu are seasonal. Most basic dishes are still available (sushi menu). Portion for bento box and a la carte grilled gindara is quite big and can be shared. Location is central downtown and near many city attractions.
