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?).

Very quaint and simple from the outside, but don't be deceived. Inside is a tasty selection of sushi and other treats. My husband and I arrived a little after they opened, about 5:30 pm and shortly after it started to fill up up. I ordered the surf and turf and a spicy tuna roll. My huband ordered the crab salad...

Japanese places come and go, Sono has stayed for many years, a tribute to it's service and quality foods. Sushi or Sashimi a must when you are here, other Japanese dishes also fabulous. The restaurant's hostess is delightful!

Sono was my first Sushi experience. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Although not entirely a sushi lover, the rolls are amazing and they offer enough variety to try. BYOB and enjoy!
