I am a regular customer of Sona and have been for many years. I work just 5 minutes from the restaurant and find myself here at least once a week, sometimes twice. The choices of restaurants in Winchester is extensive, and Sona is by far, the #1 place to go. From the relaxing atmosphere and calming music playing in the... More

I found this place on my quest at another restaurant and decides to give it a try. I had the bread pakora which was good with the sauce. I ordered the tiki masala lamb the Saudi was good but the lamb was tough. I prefer my meat tender. I also had a mango lassi which I though was just ok.... More

Disregard the few negative reviews because those folks obviously didn't eat at Sona. Awesome food, great service, incredible experience. This is my first experience with Indian food so granted, I don't have anything to compare it to. Regardless, if it's the only Indian food I ever eat I will be extremely satisfied. There were so many different flavors in the... More

The food was really good. It was just to spicy. You can choose the spice in 10 steps and we had 3 and it was still really spicy. They also have a really good naan bread.

It is surprising to see such mixed reviews for this restaurant, especially since our overall impression and experience were positive. We love Indian food, so we arrived with fairly high expectations. The restaurant was pretty empty on a Sunday at 1pm, and it took a minute or two for someone to come greet us, most likely due to the fact... More

I worked for Indian Drs and learned to love their food. I was VERY happy to discover Sona. It is charming like stepping into a different world when you step inside. You are greeted and seated quickly. The chef always comes out to say hello. And you food can be as spicy or not as you wish. A great place... More

Walked in and waited to be seated for lunch, 15 minutes later someone comes up to seat us, then says to order quickly because the kitchen is closing. Couldn't you tell me that before we tried to sit down? We left, so I can't say anything about the food - we didn't get that far. The parking lot is tiny... More

The atmosphere and food were wonderful! You can pick your rating of spices or "heat" in a scale of 1-10. I had number 3 and it was perfect. Our meal started our with an authentic chai tea followed by a delicious salad. For my meal I had potatoes and curry and my husband had goat. The portions were good and... More

My husband loves Indian and I, too, enjoy it...he lived in NYC and misses good Indian food. We were excited to find out about Sona and rushed out one evening to try it. We arrived close to closing, but the owner came out immediately and made us feel welcome. The food was average, but we chalked it up to the... More

My niece asked her mother, my husband and I to meet her at Sona's for dinner tonight. We are very glad we did! I lived overseas for 12 years and loved the variety of restaurants that serve really fresh cuisine--none of this 'adjusted for the American palate' which one gets in so many restaurants in the US. We had an... More
