We moved recently and were mourning the loss of one of the great/noodle houses in the Midwest with home made noodles in many ways that always made us feel better. Shohko has been a wonderful place for sushi and even if you doubt that fresh can be had three states from the ocean, it can and is. But they recently... More

Quality sushi prepared by those that care and presented with style is one of life's best pleasures. And even more so in the land-locked confines of New Mexico. Shohko was an new experience, recommended by local friends who urged me not to miss dining there. Their advice was spot on. I'm generally death on sushi, enjoying everything from unagi to... More

The first Japanese "sushi" restaurant in New Mexico. It is frequented by movie stars, politicians, movers and shakers. Yes, it is super well established venue. Yes, it is own and operated by Japanese family. The food is often great at Shohko. Their seafood gets used up early, there may be some out of stock, but that tells you that most... More

I'm not sure that this place needs another 5 star review but living in Denver and having access to Sushi Den (arguably one of the best sushi houses in the US), plus having worked in a Japanese restaurant for a number of years, I feel pretty qualified to add a couple of comments about Shokho-Cafe. I have no idea how... More

Shohko is pretty place, in a lovely old adobe building. The sushi is world class, artfully presented and delicious. Server was delightful, fun and knowledgeable. Hey, I even had desert, a rarity in a sushi restaurant--Panko-breaded bananas with honey. Worth the trip just for that. Will cost you more than most sushi restaurants, but in this case, you get what... More

Paid a return visit to Shohko because I heard they had introduced an "authentic" Ramen menu. And, as I would expect from what I have previously described as the best sushi restaurant in Santa Fe, it was exactly as advertised. Unlike the other noodle restaurants in this city that simply doesn't seem to know what good Asian food is, Shohko's... More

I would not go back to this restaurant! I was so sick with food poisoning (2 days) after eating here that we had to delay our departure from Santa Fe. Usually this is because of poor food handling, poor food quality or unhealthy conditions in the kitchen. I talked with the manager about another issue and he was not friendly... More

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
