Sogo Sushi is a small, but very tasty restaurant. They have quite a varied menu with many unusual rolls and other dishes. I recommend the Treasure Isalnd (avocado boat filled with tuna sashimi). The service is good. Did not try any of the cooked dishes, so can't comment on those, but the sushi and sashimi are excellent.

We ate there after a movie. There were plenty of seats, and it is BYOB. The sushi/sashimi combo was excellent, but the cooked food my friends had was just OK. The bulgogi was not very flavorful, and the meat was tough. The tempura maki was not very tempura-like. The Red Bank roll was very good. Stick to the traditional Japanese... More

We love Sogo. The owners are the nicest people, the sushi is super fresh & the service is excellent. We have never had a bad meal here. Takeout is excellent & quick too. They expanded so you can sit & have dinner. BYOB. We love it here.

This place is the preferred sushi place for a business colleague and friend who lives in the area. And, as I discovered, for good reason! Number one: the ratio between filling (e.g. Fish or veggies) and rice is different from other places, less (but more flavorful) rice. And that has a big impact. Number two: brown rice. I had no...

This place is simply perfection. Great service, stylish dining area and fresh ingredients. We ordered three different rolls, all delicious. The Rock Shrimp app is a must! Great combinations, most we have not seen prior. A must stop!

Do you know how tough it is to get brown rice to stick like sushi rice? That feat alone gets Sogo 4 stars. Could the sushi be bigger? Better? More exciting? Yes, and so could all sushi in the Jersey Shore area. You'll have to go to NYC or L.A. for truly amazing sushi. But Sogo is pretty good and... More

Recently went for lunch & we ordered a few different rolls and 2 special ones. Lava roll was our favorite but all were fresh and good. Wait staff is attentive.

I come here quite often, I happen to really enjoy this small sushi restaurant. The lunch special is a great deal- soup, salad, 2 rolls, hot tea for under 10 dollars. The server is so sweet and when it's quiet, it's a lovely atmosphere. It is small but it's quaint and rather cute. The fantastic roll is my favorite but... More

Had a "spicy" salmon avocado , a spicy and spicy roll, and a fantastic roll. All the rolls were said to be spicy and I am not one to eat extra spicy foods but there was no heat to the rolls at all. Also even the wasabi was not spicy. The texture of rolls was also mushy / one dimensional.... More
