A Great 'Mom & Pop' Sushi Bar

Sozo is a family owned and operated place, which feels more authentic. I can appreciate what goes into it, coming from a family that owned restaurants as well. The parents and daughter manage the restaurant and provide great service. The food is fresh and tastes cleaner than other sushi places... read more

I expected to be Wow'd and all I got was just okay. Definitely a locals hangout. No parking, so take chances for street parking or parking down street. Sashimi was super fresh, but little choices for roll selection.

Living next door to Moe's sushi shop I see the fish truck stop every single day of the week with the fresh fish. So you are guaranteed that your sushi was delivered the same day. This is just a small family run shop with friendly service and a large selection of sushi rolls. The other sushi restaurants have come and... More

The food was out of thus world. Probably one of the best. I would recommend this to friends and family. The waiters seated us right away and were very friendly.

Little NYC style sushi place with no many tables. Food always delicious in this family operated restaurant. The rolls are to die for. No better fresh sushi and rolls in Wilton manors.

Quite simply, Sozo is great. The Japanese family that runs the restaurant is friendly and makes a great product. The sushi master behind the counter knows his craft and always greets you with a smile. I've found that my best choices there have been to go with the chef's choice sushi and sashimi. I've never been led down the wrong... More

Very small and family owned and operated. Rolls run about 16 bucks but are really good. They use a tiny rice so sometimes the rolls unwind. Give it a whirl

This was disappointing. Great look and feel, this small family run restaurant is only okay. The menu is very very limited. All very basic sushi items and rolls. Quality is very average - nothing special to try but food was fine. A little over priced for what it is. The atmosphere is very "local" and would not be a good... More

I have been here a couple of times. The last time I was there, everytime I grabbed a piece of sushi to dip in the soy sauce the roll feel apart. Its tasted fine, however I'm not sure why it kept falling apart. It was frustrating and the result was to much soy on the sushi. I will go again... More
