    Lovely restaurant and food was amazing. I wish the staff would look less crazy busy, very rushed. Slow down and replace. You have a great place. H

    We had the lunch tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fantastic! So much thought put into the dishes and wines and everything was perfect. We had a great meal and the service was wonderful as well. Would definitely return and want to try the dinner tasting menu!

    A wonderful dining experience. On arrival our booking was acknowledged and we were given a private room due to our group size. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was aesthetically pleasing, fresh and flavoursome. We would all highly recommend this restaurant for its premium quality in service, food and atmosphere.

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
