“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We had the Tempura lunch special and it was excellent. The miso soup was delicious. . The assorted tempura was shrimp and assorted vegetables. It was nice and light, not oily, cooked just right. You also get rice and a salad and for the $11 price, you can't beat it.

“Tasty and authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Restaurant has been in this strip center 30 years. Continues to offer consistently good food and service. We had "love boat for two" meal. Each of us also had "hand roll" meaning individually prepared sushi roll. Good. Also had one "Americanized" dish--teriyaki salmon and chicken. Quite good. Service very efficient and food way above average. Clean, neat, precise, tasty.
Real Japanese.

“Quality, inventive sushi and delicious Japanese cuisine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

This place has been reliably my favorite Japanese restaurant in the Middletown/Bayshore area. The staff is incredibly friendly, the food is consistently good, doesn't matter if it was made at the sushi bar or the kitchen. I do love their sushi offerings, they do a great job picking the freshest fish available and have some wonderful flavor combinations to enhance that flavor. It's always a pleasure when great ingredients are in competent hands and that's the case with Sono, all day long.

“Good sushi; friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

One of the best Japanese restaurants in this area. Sushi is very fresh; favorites include shrimp tempura roll, the M-16 and hot and crunchy crab. Owner knows my voice and name on phone when I order; that is such a plus!
