Now, this story is the kind that makes apps worth it all. Dropped my son off to see a movie at Belcourt Theater since it was not a movie he could see at home. I wanted to grab some dinner drive around about 45 minutes to all the usual Nashville areas with crowded places and waits for tables. Until I... More

I have been a frequent customer of Sonbana (about 3-4 times per month). I have never really liked that fact that they close at 2pm for lunch. today i was running late because of traffic delays and arrived at 1:58p. I was told that they close at 2p and would need to come back. I pleaded that i'm a frequent... More

First visit. Promptly seated for lunch. Interestingly there was only one other party in restaurant and we were seated right next to them. Service and food were good. Lunch specials are available and there are multiple options to chose from in the Bento Box which comes with rice, salad, and soup. Reasonable price.

We love to come here for a lite meal especially in the evening. Be prepared to wait a while on busy nights for your sushi order. The staff makes you feel at home. They have an extensive menu besides sushi with excellent appetizers. Beef sashimi which is rare slices of steak served chilled with ponzu sauce is a favorite. They... More

The boxes were interesting - my 1st time. Ordered simple entree but next time it will be the box. Place filled quickly as noon approached. Our table was perfect for our group and a good time was had by all.

I went here with a friend who had been here several times before. We enjoyed 5 different rolls, all were delicious and fresh. She also enjoyed the green tea ice cream. The staff is very courteous and attentive, good and refilling drinks. They also have a private room available with the traditional seating (cushions on the floor), that looked neat.... More
