My first time at Sono Sushi and I was very impressed. I had the lunch sashimi platter, avocado sashimi and beef sashimi. All were perfectly prepared and presented. As someone who is avoiding carbs, I found there to be many healthy items to choose from. I highly recommend Sono Sushi.

I am a frequent patron of Sono Sushi for the past 7 years. I have been to many sushi places however, this is the best place I've eaten in Monmouth and Ocean county. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating, and the food is always fresh and delicious. They don't skimp on portions, and their service and quickness in serving... More

We'd been here previously and have had some really good dinners. We always sit at the bar with head chef Leon, who's really talented. On our last visit, and it was a Thursday night, they basically had a very little assortment of fish. He had to keep repeating some of the courses because of the lack of assorted fish. When... More

We came to Sono and decided to sit at the sushi bar with head chef Leon. We asked him to make us an omakase dinner which he was able to do because Sono wasn't too busy. While they didn't have a fantastic assortment of fish, what he gave us was nicely prepared and delicious. We will be back and would... More

Each Christmas Eve we order a platter from here and it's a hit with the family. The Incredible roll is their favorite, but pink lady is a close second. We call ahead and it's always ready when we need to lick it up. Rolls are always made fresh to order, and prices are reasonable.

Friends rave about this place, so I went in by myself on a weekday (hubby was out of town). I decided to sit at the sushi bar - usually a good bet for a single diner. What a mistake. The waitress told me which chair to take, then proceeded to use the entire space around me as a serving station.... More

We always go there for dinner and the food and service is excellent. I recently had lunch there and no change; the lunch special was a very good value and the food as always was excellent.
