Sono opposite the Dendy Cinemas has long been one of Brisbane's favoured temples of Japanese cuisine, where the welcome is warm and the food is good under the watch of Tokyo-born executive chef Ryuji Tomihara. Explore Japanese cuisine in tranquillity, horigotatsu-style, behind shōji doors with Sono's ultimate Dinner Tasting Course. Feel like a bit of fun? Take a seat at the teppanyaki bar offering all the hot plate action you can handle while chef prepares a feast of lobster, salmon, Wagyu striploin and king prawn. Sono's menu is as long as the udon at Kyoto's Tawaraya Noodle House (it's a thing, go on Google it), so be sure to try tempura softshell crab with a lip-puckering rice vinegar and shiso soup jewelled with tomato and cucumber.
