Absolutely wonderful service. So friendly and on point. The food is fresh and modern techniques used to present along with some traditional serving. Izikaya style, or try their tasting plates (this also applies to sake) it is a little pricey but well worth the coin spent.

Service was spot on. Everything we ordered came out quickly and was so fresh. The food was delicious and was very reasonably priced. Definitely going back next time in brisbane.

This tucked away little gem is a must! Once the door opens the place fills, so don't mess about or you will miss out! The food, service and ambience is outstanding.

Popped into Sono for dinner with family friends. Food was up to expectations but nothing exceptional. You know what you are going to get when you go to Sono a good wholesome meal. Always worth a visit as it does not let you down.

I am a big fan of Sono and have dined here countless times. It is my most favoured Brisbane restaurant. After an absence of a few months, I had a solo dinner at the Sushi bar. Despite an early booking of 630 pm, the restaurant was already near full and soon after was full. Not bad for an Easter Thursday... More

This restaurant was jammed packed on a Monday night, which was a promising sign. Positives - Food is very good. The quality of the sashimi is definitely above average - very fresh. Most of the sushi dishes are made by the sushi chefs in front of the customers. Restaurant has a nice fitout inside and feels somewhat authentic. Waitresses are... More

Hi Pacersam. Thank you for your kind words on our menu and restaurant, we're glad you felt it was an authentic experience. I am unsure if the staff explained this on the evening, however the Sono wifi is the wifi we use to run our POS and all business administration, and we do not have a separate system for our... More

Probably the most authentic Japanese restaurant in Brisbane, very delicated presentation and excellent Japanese style service. The only downside would be freshness of sashimi, but considering it's Australia not Japan, this can be excused. That night was my birthday so they prepared a special dessert as well - great.

Our family loved the culture and especially the food while we were in Japan a couple of years ago, but unfortunately, we have not been able to return and the Japanese food that we have had, always seems to have an Australian twist to it. Sono took us back to our time abroad. Not only did we enjoy the meal,... More

We only tried a small selection from the extensive menu, but everything we had was very tasty, well presented and with good portion sizes. The staff were friendly and helpful, and not at all overbearing. The Japanese seating area is a nice authentic touch. Recommended.

Thank David J
