Tiny eatery; cheap, good food and friendly service. Menu is varied, and the staff are willing to adjust preparation if needed. Recommend without hesitation.

Went for the first time based on TripAdvisor reviews. There was nothing special about the appearance but I wasn't there to judge decor. The service was quick, the menu had lots of options and wasn't your typical deep fried sweet n sour everything. The dishes ordered weren't over-salted and was average in proportion to the price. The price was a... More

I have fatal allergies to all types of nuts, fish and shellfish, so Asian food is always a gamble for me. So Good is the one place where I know I can get an amazing meal with no worries. We've gone there on weekends and weeknights, and the food is consistently good. The staff are polite and efficient, and we... More

Not sure why this place is so popular. I find the Jadeland much better in service, quality, presentation and most of all, cleanliness. The plates are old and mismatch. Tables are dirty and I don't see any pride from the owner. We ordered some noodle dishes but they were over cooked and pretty much falling apart as I picked them... More

I've been going to So Good Restaurant for many years now and I have to say they haven't been surpassed by any other restaurant of its kind. The service is always great and faces familiar. It's family and Peter, the owner and his wife, as well as many others, have been serving us for a long time. They have excellent... More

Went to so good with my wife, we were lucky to get a table without a reservation and, as always the food was excellent. I have never had a dish there that was not excellent. The decor is not fancy but you go there for the great food. A lot of people order take out from there as well. Some... More

This is the place to drop in after a movie with friends, hopefully get a table and to enjoy some very delicious freshly made Chinese dishes - always great specials on the board. The menu is extensive offering Chinese and other south east Asian favourites. The service is pleasant in a very casual atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Street parking is... More

This is our family's go-to place for tasty Chinese food in Ottawa. We've always been pleased with it and our last experience was no different. We love the Hunan beef, Shanghai noodles and Wu Se chicken. We just wish Peter - So, hence the name - was there more often!
