a month AGO

A friend had purchased a gift card valued at $125 for me as a birthday gift, but hadn't mentioned anything at the time. Fast forward 2 years and embarrassingly I'd found out they'd paid for it, however nothing was ever more

a month AGO

Note that they have contacted me and resolved the issue. True local need to allow the ability to amend, edit and remove.

Great venue for a nice and intimate dinner. Went there with a few close friends and enjoyed the food and ambience. Food options are plentiful. Dishes are well-presented.

Sono is a fantastic authentic Japanese experience. Staff are lovely and attentive, the food is absolutely delightful and so fresh. Consistently excellent. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for! Love it.

OVER 7 years AGO

Great place to go for authentic Japanese food. The private rooms are truly special as you are secluded from everyone. Next time I go I would love to try the teppanyaki as it looked very fun.

Review to win entry OVER 7 years AGO

Definitely a delicious place to go to for some great quality Japanese. It is a little price so expect to pay a little but it is great quality, happy service and just a good night. Portside is such a beautiful spot and with Sono upstairs, its a great place to make a good night of it and head out Biblos for cocktails afterwards! Definitely recommend as a place to at least go to more
