I love going to Sozo. At least, I used to love it. It's fairly priced, decent sashimi and fun sushi rolls. I can usually count on them being consistently decent, not amazing, not terrible, but good. We go, 1-2 times per month. The last 3...More

The salad was bad. It was too sweet and weird. I'm allergic to peanuts and they say that it's just miso dressing but my mom tasted peanut butter. The nigiri's sashimi and rice are loose, the sushi is hard and the price was okay. I...More
