Each Christmas Eve we order a platter from here and it's a hit with the family. The Incredible roll is their favorite, but pink lady is a close second. We call ahead and it's always ready when we need to lick it up. Rolls are always made fresh to order, and prices are reasonable.

Friends rave about this place, so I went in by myself on a weekday (hubby was out of town). I decided to sit at the sushi bar - usually a good bet for a single diner. What a mistake.

We always go there for dinner and the food and service is excellent. I recently had lunch there and no change; the lunch special was a very good value and the food as always was excellent.

Sono has been a staple in Middletown for 20+ years. My family and I have been going here for just as long. The food is top quality and their service is good. I would highly recommend.

SONO is absolutely delicious Japanese restaurant, we've been eating here for years and are never disappointed. The quality of the sushi is always topnotch and they seriously make the BEST chicken teriyaki we've ever had!

I am a regular at this place just because i love it. They consistently deliver the same quality; everything is fresh and delicious. I am stuck on 2 rolls - the White Swan (tuna) and the White Jade (scallops). Don't even need to give my name when i order on the phone. i am not alone in the high opinion... More

I wine dine done here often. It's one of my favorite sushi restaurants in the area. The house special rolls are all very good. My favorite however is the Uzsukuri (sp?).
