Modern in its minimalist use of dark wood, clean lines and bare-as-a-baba���s-wotsit walls, Soho���s So looks every bit the contemporary Japanese restaurant. The airy ground floor bar, dining area and shop-of-sorts (Japanese crockery sits prettily in numerous display cabinets) leads down to a main dining room. The furniture there is still wooden but stained almost black. The cooking is consistently very good ��� creative without being fussy, and much of it using organic ingredients. Menu in hand, make a visual beeline for the tempura selections (gorgeous), and then Grilled list. These knockout dishes ��� most notably the Wagyu rump, and Iberico pork ��� are cooked in the open kitchen over a rather special yogan-yaki grill resulting in an unique flavour. Friendly staff will knowledgeably suggest dishes and drinks.

A good Japanese restaurant, but

We've recently been there for dinner. Waitress are extremely attentive, talking to us with an smoothly kindly voice-tone. Dishes were served quickly. However we were a bit disappointed as tuna sashimi eventually didn't look as "red" as another occasions we've been there before. Keep in mind that... read more

Visited SO Restaurant with a (Japanese) friend. We both chose the pre-theatre menu - SUSHI course which includes Edamame - Mixed Tempura - Sushi Platter (3 pieces of Nigiri & 6 pieces of Roll) served with miso soup - all for £ 19.95 per person. Food was delicious and fresh; staff was very nice and friendly. We had sake (quite... More

We arrived late but staff were extremely accommodating, especially when we had to be in and out with 50 minutes for the theatre. Service was very good. Green tea and miso soup were really nice. We had 5 types of rolled sushi and a couple of beers it came to £60 with tip! Very pricey even for London. Not sure... More

We tried Black Cod in Saikyo Miso and Foie Gras Ju. It's amazing dishes. We had a wonderful dinner in So Restaurant. The staff was really friendly. We will come back again for the next visit to London.

The food is simply amazing! We got the miso aubergine and the tuna tataki as starters. Amazing tastes both. Especially the aubergine. We got two miso soups, 1 vegetable tempura, a selection of sushi and maki rolls (19 in total) and one of the day's special, which was tofu steak in teriyaki sauce. All of them were simply divine.

So was recommended to me by someone who was introduced to So by a Japanese friend and he spoke very highly of it. It seemed to be a cut above the fairly basic looking sushi places that are abundant in this part of town. The Nigiri and Roll set was decent value at £18.50. All of the fish tasted fresh... More

We ordered a variety of platters,chicken meat tasted dry and the others was just drowned in sauce. Food was overrated and the portion was small but the bill however, was sky high. Never again.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
