“Great Sushi”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is some of the best sushi I have had and I have had a lot both here and in Japan. I have not been to the ultra-high end establishments but for great sushi that is not ridiculously priced, this is the place.

They have nice selection of sake as well.

“Delicious food. Nice ambiance”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Everything we ordered was very good, fresh and delicious. However, our waitress brought us our appetizers and two minutes later she brought us our entrees. We felt rushed, at least to eat our entrees while they're hot. We were enjoying the ambiance and wished we weren't rushed.

“Definitely need to try the happy hour!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We dines at Soma during Happy Hour and were very glad that we did! My husband and I love to try new things and the less than $9 happy hour specials were perfect. We had the Edamame, which is a staple and a good indicator as to the rest of the food to come - it was perfect. The Spicy Tuna Tartare, Chicken Wings, and Pork Gyoza were all very good - but chicken wings took the prize spot! Crazy Irishman sushi roll and the Thai Soup was excellent! We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and it would be a fun spot for a Saturday evening out with a large group of friends.

“Excellent sushi restaurant with an interesting menu”
Reviewed May 10, 2012 via mobile

Stopped into Soma on an early Tuesday evening ( about 5:30). There were some diners there but plenty of tales open as well as the sushi bar where we sat. My friend and I each ordered one dish off the happy hur menu which was fresh and nicely prepared but relatively pedestrian. She ordered soup which was lovely, and I ordered tuna sushi with truffle oil which was spectacular, and scallop with Asian pear jam which was OK but not special. The service was quick and attentive, and parking is easy. The meal was moderately priced.a

“Our neighborhood sushi restaurant”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

With the influx of sushi restaurants in town, Soma came in a few years ago and has become a staple in the Heights/Washington/Upper Kirby area. Their food is consistently great, providing tried and true options as well as daily specials. They have a great happy hour Sun-Thurs after 5pm. The service is usually pretty good. Overall, this is our go-to neighborhood sushi restaurant and we'll continue to go!
