Sono Restaurant Portside Wharf
The restaurant's tasting Course with matching wine selection is exceptional or for a change of pace, we offer Teppanyaki, where interaction with the masterful chef is totally encouraged.
To enjoy an intimate dinner for two, our Japanese style seating by the window with river views is an ideal choice. We also offer Gift Cards so that the ones near and dear to you can also enjoy what SONO has to offer.

Private room for 10 adults and two children, service by Toma was excellent, as was the food (as always)
The restaurant was very busy (Saturday lunch) but we were seated/served in a very timely but relaxed fashion..a must go to Brisbane food experience.
Amazing lunch, a real treat
Everything was amazing. Our Waiter (I think his name was Kai) was brilliant and so attentive. The food was all amazing (As per usual). The sake tasting platter was delicious and well chosen. Sono is still strongly my favourite restaurant for those special occasions when we feel like dressing up and enjoying some of the finer things.
Sono Portside is my favourite restaurant in Brisbane. The food is exceptional, as is the service - I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone with a taste for fine Japanese food.
As a foodie, Sono is one of my favourite restaurants - I love it there.
An outstanding Japanese institution in Brisbane with fantastic food and service levels
The food and service was absolutely amazing. We will definitely be returning.
Exceptional service - our waitress and her manager went above and beyond, they both did such a great job! The food was beautiful as expected. We’ll definitely be back!
The chef is very friendly and interesting.
Amazing food,incredible staff. Always our favorite restaurants especially for special occasions. This place is impossible to fault. Always perfect every single visit.
Second visit to SONO - deliberately. An amazing restaurant, both for staff attitude, quality of service, quality of food. We felt like we were in Japan, enjoying their wonderful cuisine. Of course the Yuzu Garden cocktail is sublime. The presentation of the food is perfect, matched only by the flavour. Well done!
Such a lovely restaurant with exceptional fresh food wonderful staff and a fantastic atmosphere.
I have been to Sono a number of times and it's hallmark is the consistency of service and great food.
First class service. Finest Japanese food. Lovely atmosphere in our tatami room overlooking the water. Highly recommend for special occasions as the price reflects the quality of the experience. Our Italian guests had their eyes opened to the delights of the Japanese cuisine.
Beautifully presented, fresh produce and absolutely delicious meals.
We visited Sono for the first time for my husbands birthday,because there were five of us we couldn’t book a window table which initially was disappointing but we soon got over that.We were warmly welcomed and were pleasantly surprised by the number of diners on a Tuesday night in Brisbane.Fantastic food,excellent service and knowledgeable staff made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.We can’t wait to return.
Love Sono for a special occasion or any other time. Delicious food, wonderful service and ambiance. This was our. 4th or 5th visit. We will be back!
Our experience at Sono Portside Wharf was wonderful. The staff are extremely attentive and very friendly. The restaurant itself is aesthetically pleasing. We loved the cultural feel of the sunken tables and private rooms. The food was amazing, full of flavour and presented with an artistic flair. The Sashimi was the best we've ever had. We were celebrating our anniversary and Sono made it a day to remember. Love it. We will be back
Great evening with family in private room - great food and good service
Delicious food and great atmosphere
An incredible, dining experience for any Japanese cuisine lover or someone new to the culture. An extensive menu of exquisitely prepared meals, authentic flavours and modern takes. Beautiful atmosphere and interior design throughout the restaurant, waterfront views, private rooms for groups and exceptional service make for an unforgettable evening to share with people.
Lovely accommodating staff and effortless food! 5 stars!! 🤩
Great experience at Sono! This was my 4th visit and each time I have been very impressed with the food quality and level of service. Authentic cuisine, amazing staff and overall great experience.
Sono is a fantastic Japanese restaurant. Best Japanese in Brisbane.
Outstanding - will visit monthly from now on!
Amazing food, people, and place. Definitely going back.
It's a very nice place，but a little bit far away and might be difficult to find the entrance if u go there first time. Food is not bad,honestly,to meet the local consumers,the taste is different from the usual Japanese restaurant in Japan~
Lovely. There was a cruise ship in dock (which we were advised about) that blocks views which is a shame.
The service was outstanding and the food was incredible!
This is just a great restaurant. The ambience and outlook are indulgent, the service is perfect and the food fabulous.
Everything was quite perfect
The food was beautifully prepared (reminded us of our visit to Japan) and Moe was an excellent waitress, friendly and helpful.
Had a wonderful time at Sono Portside recently. Thoroughly enjoyed the Lunch Tasting Menu as it gave us an opportunity to try a variety of things on the menu. Only thing to be careful of, is if there is a ship in port, the view to the river is blocked.
the food was amazing, the restaurant is beautiful
