In a large exquisitely designed space upstairs at Portside, diners can partake in the finest of Japanese cuisine from the teppanyaki bar or sushi bar, under the glow of box lights and the calming influence of water features, river stones, bamboo, and rich neutral coloured textures.
Groups are catered for with traditional paper screened rooms containing traditional tatami tables, while couples vie for the sought after river view tables (although there is a range of traditional or Western seating options for all).
Highly recommended, especially for the uninitiated, is a sashimi platter or perhaps the tasting menu – a compilation of six chef recommended dishes incorporating delectable morsels such as lime oyster, sushi, sashimi, crab meat croquette and a selection of warm dishes such as Kobe wagyu steak or duck teriyaki, and a dessert platter.
As well as sushi and sashimi, Sono also offers a divine a la carte menu, including nabemono (Japanese hot pots with a minimum order of two serves) and Chef's special dishes of the day.
Sono is a highly regarded, family-friendly Japanese restaurant in the popular Portside dining precinct with a fantastic reputation so bookings are definitely recommended.
