Our first experience dining at Shohko was a mixed bag. I usually do not write interviews, but after spending $100.00 and being my husband's birthday, I'm compelled to share our experience. The wait staff affects the dining experience and unfortunately, the establishment offered us a waitress whose vibe was negative from start to finish; sadly, we had to endure her... More

The Shrimp stuffed green chile tempura was amazing! Also tried Vilcano roll- very good! Was surprised to find good sushi in Santa Fe! Will go back for lunch to try their ramen on the advice of others.

My husband loved it, I thought it was average. Atmosphere was nice. This place was recommended to us by the staff at the hotel we are staying at.

I love the ambience of Shohko. It is a contemporary Southwestern style. Very soft lighting. The host greets you and is very gracious. Fantastic service. The sushi rolls and tempura are to die for. We moved to Santa Fe about 2 years ago, and this is becoming one of our go to restaurants. There is parking in the rear, so... More

Shohko Cafe is one of my favorite Santa Fe restaurants. It has spare, modern, asian decor, the food is excellent, and so is the service. We usually have dinner there, but on the basis of several rave reviews, we went there at lunch for their ramen, and oh, my god, it was so good! It's a very large portion, chock... More

This place is top of the line and a place you should stop in and eat if you get the chance. I think the restaurant is up there with the best sushi places I have ever been to. Just don't wear perfume, they won't let you in.

Amazing sushi in the high desert! Who knew? Tucked away near the city center is a fairly non-descript building with a tiny little parking lot squeezed into the courtyard. Find this gem if you want really good, fresh sushi! The highlights were David's albacore; Albacore Sashimi, Avocado, Scallion, Spicy Oil and Sesame Seeds, and the Caterpillar roll; Freshwater Eel and... More

This as good as the best sushi restaurants near oceans. They seem to do a great business so are able to get large amounts of beautiful fresh fish daily. The head sushi chef is a distinguished looking woman who seems to be very involved with the other chefs. Everything is made fresh including a delightful spicy tuna maki which is... More

Wear no fragrance but enjoy the cuisine. Food for all tempura is succulent and of course sushi is fresh. Nice change from red chile in Santa Fe.
