I went to Sokyo last Friday night for dinner prior to a lyric theatre show and it was amazing. I have been there before but I read some reviews and they talked about some of the dishes like Miso Cod which was sublime and a must try. I cannot find the words to describe how yum this dish was. The... More

We went to Sokyo on Sunday night. The atmosphere was great and the night started out looking quite promising. But when our server came to take our order that was when things started to go wrong. When asking about the price for the toro, the waitress was unsure and checked her notes and then quoted the wrong price, which we... More

The Japanese food at this place is definitely special. The stand out dish for me would be the sashimi platter, the pork belly skewers (to die for - melt in your mouth type) and of course the petit four dessert. The price is a little more than the average Japanese food but the ambience is great and the wait staff... More

After reading a few reviews, and having eaten breakfast a few times at Sokyo we decided to celebrate our birthdays with the special sushi Omakase rather than a more traditional degustation, and it was incredible. From the beginning of the evening until the end the service was impeccable, the staff attentive to every detail and welcoming, our chef, Takashi Sano,... More

Pleasantly surprised, quickly seated without reservation. It took a while and a bit of prompting to find someone to take our order but once they had the food was on our plate in the blink of an eye. They have tempura masters in the kitchen, will definitely go back 👌

Sokyo always manages to hit the spot with regards to food and drinks. We tried quite a few different items on the menu with the help of one of the workers. We were so happy we reordered most of everything! The flavours are incredible and each bite is a burst of flavour. The cocktails are just another delicious story! Thanks... More

We wanted a light lunch and stumbled on Sokyo. The sashimi came with the drama of dry-ice smoke on a platter of ice. It was very fresh. . Highly recommended.

Food and service was terrific. I definitely would recommend people to go and try for themselves. It was everything I was expecting and more.

There was much to the experience that was good but overall disappointing. The sommelier was excellent and he has put together an excellent wine card. Some of the dishes excellent but not all. The tempura snapper very good, wagu beef over cooked. At the end the very expensive bill very badly handled. They mixed up the cards and then tried... More
