Great food and service. Had no issues at all and food came out fast (Friday night). Service was spot on. A bit on the pricey side, but such is life. Will likely go back.

Food was delicious especially the Tuna tartar and the rolls. The chaufa was a little bland but otherwise full of chicken and very filling. Our service was great!! And I can't forget the desserts. Thai donuts were sinful! I definitely recommend this restaurant

We were a party of 7 and the service was great. There was a little mess up with one of the plates, but they were quick to correct and the wait time was short. The sushi I ordered was great as well as the rest of the meals that were ordered.
Great place to go.

I got there at 9:40pm. I ended up leaving close to 11pm. The waiter came around every other 20-25min. The Sushi took forever to come out. I ordered two JB tempura rolls. Normally the Salmon is cooked, but in this place they left it uncooked. I was okay with it, but not for my wife since she is pregnant. This is the second location I attend to and same service/experience. The price to food ratio is not reasonable either (8pcs tiny size for $11). I rather go to Sushi Sake, Ohana, Dragonfly or anywhere else, but here. They give you 10-12pcs and are bigger in size for similar price and way better quality than Sokai. This would be my last resort place for Sushi.

We loved this new restaurant...great addition to the area. Food was of excellent quality! Our server was nice and although she kept forgetting to bring us certain things like water at the beginning, and messed up our bill, overall she was attentive. We all enjoyed our meal and would dine here again.

Had made a reservation, I came 5 mins too late and table was already given away. No call to follow up or anything. Food was nothing special, Chaufa was burnt 1st time around, nearly all the sushi has cream cheese in it........, very 1 toned in flavor as well. AC was dripping on table and into food and service could have improved allot. Don't sit next to door to bathroom and service area.
Drinks were too sweet for my taste and no upsell at all. Overall for the area this is a better improvement but still a long way to go.

This was our third visit to Sokai, and we were once again treated courteously and served quickly. The food is delicious, authentic Peruvian, with creative fusions like the causa ceviche, excellent fried rice, and not-to-be-missed pork belly buns and ceviche rolls. We were so excited we ordered too much food, and nothing disappointed! We'll definitely be back.

A group of friends met to celebrate a birthday. The food was good but the price and portions were way off. 45.00 for 15 little pieces of sashimi is crazy. The cerviche was very good but 15.00 and it was beyond small and very little fish.
There were 6 of us and 3 of us shared and most of us drank water. The bill was well over 200.00 and we were still hungry when we left. The place is beautiful and we had a nice time. I cannot recommend this place because of the portions and price. The food had nice flavor and the service was ok. We had to hunt our server down on a few occasions to get drinks and our bill. Also recommend having a dessert or coffee for birthday person.

Service wasn't the best, but the staff made a good effort to be available and helpful. Noisy like Cheesecake Factory, food was different, and good. Did not care for the salmon floating in a teriyaki sauce, although the salmon was exceptional, or the deep fried spinach surrounding it, very oily, found out I could have requested the salmon on a plate with steamed spinach instead....will know better next time. Would go back and recommend to a friend with lessons learned.

I like the restaurant -- been there probably a dozen times now for dinner, but I'm finding it to be very inconsistent in terms of the service, and the food. I've never been a fan of serving food 'as ready' and feel that's a lame excuse for not being able to put a process in place in the kitchen, but that's another topic. On this visit I couldn't help but think it was a different cook and doesn't quite have the spices down because the sweet & spicy edamame was very spicy with a mesquite taste and smell, and not at all sweet. In fact, so spicey would couldn't eat much of it. And the beef with quinoa dish we ordered was very salty. The restaurant has potential -- I just don't think they have the right management operating the place.

Always like the food, but don't like the "free low" of the food delivery. They tell you the food will be served as it comes out of the kitchen, which to me is just another way of saying we have no interest or ability to organize things so that your selections come out in a logical order. We asked to start with the spicy edamame, which is very good by the way, but ours didn't come out until after our main courses were served. Kind of defeats the purpose of a "starter". And because it's an open kitchen, I was able to see our edamame sitting on the counter in the kitchen, for about 15 minutes before they brought it to the table. No doubt it was cold by then so we sent it back and asked that they try again. The manager doesn't seem to care whether customers are satisfied or not -- he seems to hide in the kitchen area.

Great place and the staff is very attentive! The Sushi rolls are so fresh and delicate. We tried the pork buns where the deep dried pork belly, aioli and a tangy red onion slaw were hugged by the soft steamed bun. Another favorite of ours was the Ceviche Classico, marinated to perfections with such great flavors. Definitely a new favorite place to come back to and can't wait to the try the pulpo anticuchero and the sweet and spicy lamb chops!

Pleasantly surprised by this small restaurant. Food was excellent and most plates shareable. Both the service and staff were great. A little on the louder side because of its size but nothing to bad. The ceviche original was delicious as where the tacos. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We've been to Sokai (The Falls) three times now since they opened about a month ago. Always on a Friday night. Enjoy it very much. But a little disappointed with the service this time. Not sure if it's because it's getting busier, or maybe he was a new waiter. But we had to wait so long for him to bring our drinks to us that I got up and got them myself. Same with the water we requested when we ordered. And he never came by to check that everything was fine. Not sure why he was so busy as the waiters there only take the orders -- they have food runners to bring it out. Otherwise it was a nice dinner.

The food and service were excellent. The only downside is that they did not have the beer and wine license active yet. I would have waited to open the restaurant to have the license in place. The meal could have used a nice wine of your choosing.
