Sozo Sushi for Date Night

The best date night spots are always the ones that you accidentally stumble upon–and we did just that at Sozo Sushi!

Living in Houston, this unsurprisingly happens quite often. We were in the Galleria taking care of some last minute shopping. I would say it was roughly about 9 PM because Nordstrom Rack had just kicked us out.

We wanted something exotic and close. I was starving! Sozo Sushi Lounge popped up.

We ended up at this super chic sushi lounge, just a few minutes past the Galleria Mall. Sozo Sushi Lounge is quietly tucked away in the corner of a shopping mall on Post Oak Boulevard, along with some other super swanky spots.

We passed it twice–once trying to navigate there (thanks Google Maps) and upon walking up. I guess I should note that they are on the second level of the building complex. They had the option for valet, but it was late (and unbusy) so we parked ourselves. The vibe was superb.

Think: open but intimate, contemporary but elegant. That's what #Sozo Sushi is. Click To Tweet

We were quickly seated by a window offering the most delightfully charming scenic view. Our chairs were pulled out and we were given a menu. You can check out the menu for yourself here. The mood was very serene. It was obvious that the establishment took things very seriously.

I opted for an adult beverage, while he got a fountain drink. So naturally, a trip to the girl’s room was due. I know I’m not the only one that’s intrigued by restaurant bathroom architecture! Come on guys, look at these walls. The tiles have a nice glisten under the light, while the chrome offsets everything else. The restroom, and restaurant alike, were very clean.

Okay, so back to the table… Like I said, we were very hungry! Our waitress politely informed us that we had arrived just a few minutes before last call. We quickly perused the menu and ordered both our appetizer and entree. The menu was extensive, but not to the point that it was overwhelming. Each item had a brief description below it, just in case you weren’t familiar with what you were getting.

Sozo Sushi offers everything from Shashimi, Classic & Signature Sushi Rolls, Rice and Noodle dishes, Sandwiches, Soups, Poke Bowls and more. My favorite dessert to get while having sushi is definitely the Mochi (Japanese ice cream). Sozo boasts a wide selection of Mochi flavors, six to be exact: Chocolate, Coffee, Green Tea, Mango, Red Bean and Strawberry.  I’m supposed to be on a diet, but that didn’t stop my mouth from watering as my eyes descended down the dessert menu. I was stuffed by the time I’d finished my appetizer and entree–but if not, I would have tried the sticky rice dessert.

If you can manage to squeeze in some time during your lunch, take advantage of Sozo Sushi’s Bento Box lunch specials. If visiting after work, drop in during their happy hour (Monday – Friday from 3 PM to 7 PM and all day on Sundays).

What we got:

I have not one! If I have to say one, I’d say that they could stand to stay open an hour or two later.


Every item was fresh and skillfully prepared. They held nothing back as far as seasoning and spices went. The portions were large and filling. The scenery was fantastic.


Everything about the experience was pristine. So yes, I will most definitely be going back!

    I have not visited Sozo Sushi Lounge yet, in fact this is my first time hearing about the restaurant. My favorite sushi roll is a California avocado roll.

    Now I want sushi, I hadn’t had any in a minute. Most of our sushi spots are expensive. This spot sounds cozy, cute, and delicious.
