We've had some really good meals here- whenever we suggest Japanese food- SOZO is the first choice. We are a huge fan of the Bento box meals- especially the beef teriyaki with the Tempura and/or Gyoza. Parking is never a problem. And the service is always on point.

We stopped by with a party of 4 for a late-afternoon snack. Service was friendly and attentive. Miso soup was the best I have had in recent memory. Sushi was fresh and flavorful. I will be back to try for dinner.

They give you soup and beans free. Prices for a Saturday lunch is reasonable if not the lowest in town.

One a first time visit, arrived after the lunch rush so were seated immediately and served quickly. Sashimi was excellent. We also had the Firecracker Roll and the Raider Roll - both were fresh, delicious, and huge! This will now be our go-to sushi in Pleasanton.

Stopped here while staying in town and had a sub par experience, when we arrived we were told to pick a seat. Once seated it took over 15 minutes for someone to come give us menus and take the drink order. We were about to get up and then someone walked over and apologized. I ordered a spicy tuna roll...

I was surprised when we walked in. This place was packed. The good was great and the price was just right. Great service. They do want you to eat and leave and the place is small and the tables need to be turned over for the next guest.

No pressure Sozo but you really are the best sushi place in town.

The cooked meals are delicious. The servers are always very efficient and pleasant. The... More

Sozo is hands down the best and freshest Sushi in the Tri-Valley area. They also always have fresh Uni. Great selection, fast service and good prices. Make plans to take your friends or family, they are able to seat large groups.
