Sono Japanese Restaurant: Brisbane City

The original Sono Japanese Restaurant nested in Brisbane's Central Business District is a world away from the rush of the Queen Street Mall below. Walk up the stairs and you are drawn into another world, with all the wait staff dressed in Yukatas. The Yukata is much more practical than a Kimono in this setting as they are easier to wear and made of cotton rather than the lined silk structure of the Kimono.

The gorgeous Evonne had picked out Sono to celebrate her birthday and the trusty band of seven were escorted into a small wood panelled room and with a pit below the table to allow guests to comfortably place their legs.

I ordered some Salmon Sashimi and a Prawn Tempura and Salmon Roe Hand Roll. As always the Sashimi was beautifully fresh and the hand roll was satisfying with its crisp tempura batter and the savoury accents of the roe. The other than the food, what impressed me about Sono were how accommodating the wait staff were. The birthday girl has a number of food allergies and they were kind enough to check and ensure none of these were included in the dishes.

I didn't have any dessert but some of the other guest did and this is a photo of the Flaming Mount Fuji. This glorious dessert is layer of sponge, topped with green tea ice cream and meringue. This is then lit on fire in front of the guests, yummo!
