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.

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.

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.

A lovely first Japanese experience with food. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. We did the tasting menu and they were more than happy to swap out sashimi for something cooked as I'm pregnant.

Katy always recommends the best sake, and remembered my birthday so I was surprised with a sparkler and ice cream. They always remember me when I walk up to the front counter and just make the whole night feel special.

Sophisticated upmarket Restaurant with superb service- brilliant staff with perfect attention - but most of all - the food is exceptional. Given the chains of sushi trains cooking for the masses - it is an utter delight to enjoy Japanese food that is perfectly prepared and served. I would highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions with friends and loved ones.

As always, Brilliant food, brilliant staff, and fantastic service. They always look after us here, and it's become our favourite for a quality meal out. And the birthday message on my husband's dessert was a lovely surprise! He thought I'd arranged it but I had to admit they did that themselves! Incredibly thoughtful & made it very special. Thanks for such a lovely lunch! We will be back again!

Didn’t like the Hamilton roll. The guacamole on top of the sushi robs away the real Japanese taste and experience.

Wen there for my wife's 60th birthday. The food was superb, ambience was great and service was attentive but not overbearing. Had the tasting menu which had a good variety of traditional Japanese food. The Sushimi was particularly good.
