Tiny spot. Huge taste.

I stopped in to SOT to grab some takeout while in SJ on business. Ordered a dynamite roll and a Florida roll (yes it had oranges in it). Received complimentary green tea while I waited. The restaurant was small but cozy. The rolls were quite large and very tasty. I was very happy with the... read more

We ended up here to escape a rain storm during a visit to Saint John, and when we saw the beautiful food being prepared, we decided to stay....and we are do glad we did. Freshest, tastiest sushi I think I've ever tasted, my husband's noodle dish was piping hot. Beautifully presented and sooooo good! We would go back to Saint... More

We did takeout for the first time, usually we eat in. We were very happy to find that our food was still hot when we got home. Everything like always was great.

This place is just a bit away from the Saint John restaurant scene but is worth visiting, the place is very clean and the sushi is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced, I understand they are open for lunch too.

I've been here twice and was disappointed both times. The sushi isn't bad, but it lacks flavour and isn't as good as the sushi at Tak-e Sushi or En Sushi. The first time I went, my plate arrived dirty at my table and my appetizer arrived after I'd finished my meal - they had forgotten about it and rarely came... More

We were passing through Saint John and looking for Sushi to take back to our campsite. After reading the rave reviews (4 out of 5), decided to give Sense of Tokyo a try. The Sushi was at best, average. What was most distressing was the overpowering amount of salt that infused the rolls that we ordered. Had enough salt intake... More

And the restaurant was clean and well-run. A pleasant experience all around, and we would definitely eat here again!

I've been here 3 or 4 times for lunch. It has always been fresh food, and great service. It's also a great value.

Loved looking at the photo depictions of the various foods they serve. I enjoyed my tofu dish, though it was a bit bland. My partner liked his sushi. I felt adventurous and tried the Black Sesame ice cream -- it was really good, highly unusual -- great in small doses. Very cool looking.
