One of our favorite places. Excellent food, reasonable prices, friendly (but not subservient) staff (most of whom have been there a long time). Always quiet and peaceful.

I've had sushi in 46 different states. This place wins. Great people, Great rolls. The menu has great pictures and contents of the rolls. Gets pretty busy sometimes and we can't get our favorite spot at the bar, always good service.

Sonobana may be the most popular Japanese restaurant in Nashville and deservedly so. Fabulous, fresh sushi; delightful, innovative combinations; swift, warm, and attentive service. This is such a favorite that I go here several times a month.
