Diverse menu items, Fresh ingredients and a cosy atmosphere with warm, friendly service keep us coming back to this restaurant. We try to have something different every time, but rainbow roll, angry tuna and the sushi pizza are favourites.

This is my favourite place to eat in Saint John. It's cute, cosy and has good service - but it's the sushi rolls that will keep you going back again and again. They are so good. Plus you can take friends who aren't into sushi as they have delicious noodle bowls and fried noodle or rice dishes. Who doesn't like... More

I stumbled upon this great little place by chance because in the neighbourhood it was either there or Tim Horton's for a quick Saturday lunch... and of course I chose sushi! And since then I have kept on hearing people recommend this restaurant, or say it was their favourite place for sushi in Saint John. And I have to say,... More

This is a small place and reservations are recommended. Friendly service, cute decor and very good sushi. I generally don't like miso soup but I ate the whole bowl here. We were given a cup of tea as soon as we sat down. We had the lunch bento box and it was fabulous. We also shared the sushi pizza which... More

Reading the great reviews about Sense of Tokyo here on TripAdvisor, I have wanted to try this place forever, but I am on the "fussy" side, and didn't know if there would be anything I would like. I have read their menu a dozen times. Finally, I bit the bullet and took my husband there for supper one night last... More

Excellent food and great service in the SOT. We don't know a lot about sushi, but waitress gave good suggestions for us. And thanks the owner for giving a free dessert.

We read about this little spot on Trip Advisor and had to try it! We walked in for an early supper and were seated very quickly. We ordered right away and got the sushi quite quickly. Everything was very tasty and the service was very good. We will definitely be returning.

Relied on Trip Advisor to select this place. Unassuming, small storefront, decor modest. Wide menu of Japanese food. We had obento meals nicely served in box lunch style. Miso soup very good. Generous portions and this order was almost too much to eat. Service extraordinarily prompt and helpful. A new customer is treated like an alarm at the fire station.... More

Just having moved here, we were excited to try this restaurant given it's good ratings on trip advisor. Unfortunately, it was overpriced. The portions were small. I've had much better sushi at other restaurants in Fredericton and Moncton.
