Shohko Café is the best sushi I have tried in New Mexico. But a restaurant it's not olnly about the quality of food, it's also about the service and this restaurant has two of two. Be careful not to use perfume before visiting Shohko, or you end up in a table away from everyone.

This is not far off the Plaza in Santa Fe and down the street from the Georgia O'Keefe museum. There is convenient parking behind the restaurant. We were told when we called to make the reservation that the restaurant is fragrance free. No problem - however when you walk in the restaurant there is a strong bleach smell. However, this... More

This is a 4.5 restaurant. When I called and made a reservation for a single person I was given a warm welcome and was offered a table or spot at the sushi bar even though they were busy. This is a family owned restaurant in SF for almost 40 years. The matriarch of the family is a sushi chef, the... More

We dined here on a stormy Monday evening in early November. The restaurant wasn't that busy but I attribute that to the day of the week and the weather. First off, one thing I greatly appreciated about this restaurant is that they have a sign when you walk in that it is a perfume free environment. I wish other restaurants... More

Want to pay $5 for a little bowl of soy beans, $37 for an entree, $10 for a glass of sake? If you are ok dropping over $52 not including tip then this is the place to go! Sushi is fresh and delicious, staff are knowledgeable. This is a real "keep it quiet" kind of spot... don't take a rowdy... More

I have no idea why people had a poor experience at Shohko. I've been several times and always have excellent service and amazing/fresh sushi. My waiters and waitresses have always known the menu, but I didn't need it. The Enoki mushrooms…yum. Something you can't get ANYWHERE? Not sushi, but shrimp stuffed green chili tempura. To die for!! Sashimi, etc. I... More

Best sushi in Santa Fe and has been for over 20 years. I usually sit at the sushi counter and have gotten to know the chefs. They take a great deal of pride in their masterpieces.

I think the food here is quite good, and definetely by a long yard, the best Japanese restaurant in Santa Fe. The only think I would have a complaint about is that the service is somewhat slow. I think it's also a bit overpriced. It has interesting arrangements for the most part, and is the only Japanese restaurant I would... More

Took my parents to Shohko Cafe as they both enjoy sushi. The sushi was top notch, very fresh. The salads were beautifully prepared as well. Appetizers all good quality. The service was also excellent. My major complaint is the restaurant itself. The entrance is very haphazard, random chairs, fans, menus, and shelves with plates and glasses on them are what... More
