Would have given five stars but a nearby patron was on speaker with a friend.....we are not at Mc Donald’s! Server was very young male but very, very attentive and engaging. They should hire an additional bus person so he can be with his tables....More

I love to come to Sorae for lunch with friends. It’s central, nice view and affordable price. The manager knew it was my birthday and offered a birthday cake for my table. Totally surprised and thank you for this gesture!

This is a romantic place with a view; modern and zen and the food is top quality! We ordered a variety of dishes and we shared and enjoyed every minute. The miso with different mushrooms was exquisite and so where the other dishes.
