                                                          Loud throughout the restaurant with a small lobby so getting in and seated is a hassle. Prices were different than listed on their website but that might have been Valentine's Day prices (still, though). Food and drinks were good for the price regardless. Maybe a good spot for solo bar dining.

                                                          Absolutely amazing experience and great food options. The menu isn’t exhaustive, so it leaves space for sharing and plenty of “I’ll try this next time” choices.

                                                          Every single dish we tried was a knockout. We're definitely going to return for the KFC and miso soup starters. Our favorite rolls were the Pink Floyd and the Crunchy Diablo. I couldn't be happier with how our night went!

                                                          We love this place, it’s always a consistently solid experience with the best sushi in Raleigh. The owner is an absolute delight and remembers the “regulars” (even from pre-COVID!) and came and chatted with us at the table. We’ve been getting take-out from here for birthdays and our anniversaries during COVID and we (of course) chose this place to go for our “everyone including our 7 year old has been fully vaccinated” first “just us” date night since early 2020 (we were here for my birthday in January 2020, lol) and as always we loved everything! Thank you!

                                                          We had a fantastic dinner that included sushi and ramen, both were delicious. Ramen broth was flavorful and noodles were perfectly cooked. Tuna on Tuna roll is def spicy and delicious. This was a family dinner for a special occasion and worth the price. Will be back but probably for another special occasion, not casual dining. Definitely recommend.

                                                          We had the Firecracker Shrimp appetizer and 3 Special Rolls. All the food was great. We liked the appetizer and the Crunchy Diablo Roll the best - a perfect mix of cruch and heat. We arrived at 6:00 on a Saturday and Sono's was relatively quiet. Service was excellent and the food came out quickly. The appetizer came out first (as it should) and the rolls didn't come out until we had finished the appetizer (as it should be). By 6:45, the place was jumping and the noise level was high but not crazy.

                                                          Fantastic sushi! Not a huge fan of so many options with cream cheese, but the more classic rolls, and also sashimi and nigiri were top notch. Will definitely be back.

                                                          Authentic sushi. Portions are fairly large, and the prices are fair.

                                                          Had a wonderful evening. Our server Davis was wry helpful and attentive. The food was fantastic! Split the spicy miso ramen and two specialty rolls. The fish was super fresh and the flavors in the rolls was amazing! Presentation was also top notch! Had a wonderful evening!

                                                          The food was very fresh and delicious, but overpriced. Service was slow and our server had a lot of trouble hearing us. We had a window table, which seemed nice at first, but they smashed two tables in this area and you feel like you are dining with another couple. Not great if you want some privacy on date night.

                                                          We ordered 4 sushi rolls and we felt it was just okay… the rolls did not ‘wow’ us. For paying full price for each roll instead of ‘buy one get one’ at other places, it was not worth the price. We felt other places had just as good and much better than what we ordered. Service was okay… we felt we should not have to ask for drink refills especially when eating spicy sushi. We would not return to this restaurant based on our visit.

                                                          Beautiful atmosphere, our server was incredible and had great recommendations. The food was as amazing as we had heard about! A little noisy for a one on one dinner but perfect for a small group or if you want a lively place!
