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.

Went to this place for lunch on our anniversary. Ordered two bento boxes and sake tasting set and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! The arrangement was so delicate and beautiful we had to take our breath in a bit when the food came up. There were so many varieties of food that we almost couldn't finish them even though... More

We decided to try here as it sounded good.It wasn't terrible but it certainly wasn't worth the prices we paid. We decided to do the degustation which was $89 per person. I thought the food was rushed through as the restaurant wasn't busy. You didn't get time to really enjoy breathers between the courses. I thought the presentation was poor... More

The food is excellent and the staff are super friendly and helpful but the whole experience of eating in a traditional Japanese way just tops off the lunch

My Aussie partner took us out for a special meal and I did the ordering. We had a private room and food was highly enjoyable washed down with white wine & sake. Very good and highly recommended!

Every time I go to Brisbane this is my must go to restaurant. Love it. Service is exceptional but the food is the real highlight. Beautiful, fresh, tasty and never disappoints. The teriyaki salmon is a fave and the dumplings are the best. I can't wait to return.

With my girlfriend we were looking for a restaurant and we stopped at Sono. The place is very typical and et the staff look after you. We had few plates and all were very good. I recommend this restaurant if you want a real jap experience.

My husband & I visited Sono for lunch this week and thoroughly enjoyed our sushi & shokado bento boxes. The bento boxes were very flavoursome and I experienced tastes I'd never had before which was great. My favourite dish in the sushi bento was the soft shell crab karaage. Enjoyed the Orion beer too!

Thank Sinitta_x
