    Fresh seafood. High price for premium seafood. Lobster sashimi was good. Waitresses were very busy, so the service was little bit slow. We have to clean our table by ourselves.

    A little disappointed this time. The food was not as good as it has been previously. We regularly eat at Sono and this is the only time I can say that it was not exceptional.

    Fantastic food as always but service was a bit slow which is unusual - maybe just a busy night.

    Tried lunch degustation menu, had some great items and some slightly above average. Would go back to try more items from their lunch menu!

    Food and atmosphere was fantastic. This is fine dining and I wish there was a little more food dished out for 2 person banquet as the food was just delicious and we wanted more.

    Beautiful presentation of food but the only downside is the markup on sake.

About the restaurant

Sono-rific Step inside Sono Japanese Portside and you will be transported from Brisbane straight to traditional Japan. From the Japanese music, bamboo and low Japanese seating overlooking Brisbane Waters every detail has been carefully planned. Sono has taken just as much care with its food, with many locals rating Sono as the best Japanese in town. For lovers of Japanese food, or those new to this style of cuisine, the six-course tasting menu is a journey worth taking. And if you are happy to leave the car at home, you can team each course with wine or sake. The food here is fresh and full of flavour from the sashimi to the Wagyu steak, prepared to perfection by specialist Japanese chefs. We thoroughly recommend Sono for a fabulous night out and a great experience of Japanese traditions. Best dish: Wagyu steak
