In the past I would have given this restaurant a wonderful review on both food and service however, the the last two times I've been there the service has been beyond disappointing. We went as a group of five for lunch today. The waitress was not exactly friendly and she appeared to be rushing although there were only a few... More

Sense of Tokyo is my fave sushi spot in the Maritimes, not just SJ. I love the cozy atmosphere and attentive service. It can be slower during the dinner rush, but you shouldn't be in a hurry to leave here. The food is always well prepared and they offer a variety of non-sushi dishes to satisfy less adventurous palettes. They... More

I trust this place to make my sushi right! The service is always friendly though I do find it a little on the pricey side, though for saint john it's not too bad.

Out first time back in a while. The menu has expanded and I found it difficult to sort out. The waiter and waitress seemed to be unsure which one looked after us. The sushi was well presented and really fresh and there is a wall screen showing various dishes, waiter even had an I pad for show and tell. I... More

We had some really good sushi here. The waiter was unable to answer some simple questions we asked, but the food was really good. Except for the salad with the ginger dressing just did not taste right...

Only had lunch here but they are open for dinner with a similar menu. The ingredients are so fresh and eveything tastes great. I recommend a bento box so that you can try a few things but I am sure that whatever you get, you will like. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere is lovely. They are closed on Monday... More

The sushi is always delicious! It's not a fancy place, but the food and service are both excellent! It's in uptown SJ so the location is good too.

I stopped in to SOT to grab some takeout while in SJ on business. Ordered a dynamite roll and a Florida roll (yes it had oranges in it). Received complimentary green tea while I waited. The restaurant was small but cozy. The rolls were quite large and very tasty. I was very happy with the quality and would recommend to... More

We ended up here to escape a rain storm during a visit to Saint John, and when we saw the beautiful food being prepared, we decided to stay....and we are do glad we did. Freshest, tastiest sushi I think I've ever tasted, my husband's noodle dish was piping hot. Beautifully presented and sooooo good! We would go back to Saint... More
