“Skip the expensive sushi downtown and go here....”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We happened upon Soto when I was at the fabric store next door and decided to pop in for lunch. Wasn't expecting much, we were just hungry. I can honestly say that we were blown away! Since having lunch we have been two more times for dinner and we brought some family with us. Everyone was equally impressed. Chef Owner Andy has some serious skills. He uses the freshest seafood and produce and imports many authentic ingredients. We have had so many wonderful dishes that I can't even list them all. Some of our faves are the unagi maki, jalapeno hamachi and anything that is a special of the day. Save room for the green tea tiramisu. Our new favorite date night place!

“Even if you are not a sushi fan...”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Loved the food! SORO had been recommended to us many times and we finally made it on a Friday night. I am the only real seafood lover. My oldest son covers his face when we cook any kind of fish. Even he tried everything we ordered! We sampled various food until we were stuffed. I really enjoyed the variety and our waitress was very knowledgeable. Her recommendation were spot-on. Will go again.

“Soto Offers Very Good Japanese Food”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Soto is an excellent Japanese restaurant....in Austin....you just need to know how to find it. The reviews on TripAdvisor should help. Getting to the location will surprise you - you would not think there is a good Japanese restaurant in the strip mall where the restaurant is located....But you should go ahead and venture in.

Definitely worth it. My wife and I had a very nice dinner helped by a very attentive wait staff. Had sushi, sashimi, udon noodles, crispy salmon rolls, hamachi as an appetizer. Overall excellent

“Soto's is one of the best restaurant's in Austin area”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We love going to Soto's and checking out what just arrived. Chef Andy consistently creates wonderful dishes that's tasty and also visually appealing. He always has something different than all the rest. We enjoy stopping by for lunch on Saturdays or after work. Lychee cosmo is yummy as well.

“Just Divine!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We have been to Soto multiple times. We are very happy to be back each time. The food is delicious and the customer service outstanding. Presentation is a feast for the eyes! Chef Andy has worked at Morimotos and you will experience that unique touch. Everything is prepared with such care and attention to detail. Must try are the kobe beef, otoro tuna, tiramisu dessert and udon noodles. One of our favorite restaurants!
