Hadn't booked so we were lucky to get a table, don't be put off by the dark decor - the staff are friendly and happy to explain the menu to you. Chinese tea arrived promptly and food followed quickly. We loved the big bowls of noodles or rice, with so many dishes to choose from we will have to go... More

We rang at short notice and they managed to squeeze us in, the only table available was close to the door and they advised us it may be a little cold, however upon our arrival we found that this was not an issue at all. All the staff are extremely friendly and polite The food was amazing and very reasonably... More

I've been here a dozen or so times. Look for the Recommendations menu, or ask the staff for something different. Try the Beef and Aubergines, if there is 4 or more or you the Braised Ham Hock. It's priced well considering the quality of the food. Ignore the dark decor, its a very inviting place. Always book evenings and weekends.

Our second visit in recent times and SOJO once again ticked all the boxes. Booked at short notice and advise we only had a window of 1.5 hrs before table was needed again. Very friendly welcome, efficient staff, order taken, Chinese tea brought speedily and starter followed without too much waiting. Wrapped lettuce starter was very good, not as meat... More

We went here encouraged by Giles Coren's repeated plugs in The Times, especially since he rarely bothers to recommend anything outside London. It's worth all the praise. I'll avoid a dish by dish summary. We enjoyed all that we ate and would probably try something different next time. Dim sum are absolutely exemplary. The menu is refreshingly original. Ingredients are... More

Been twice recently, pretty expansive menu and food is great (squid was bang on), beware of ordering anything with an s against it if your not a lover of spicy/hot food. Service friendly although not a lot of atmosphere if your eating during quiet times as we were however once it fills up its quite vibrant. Well worth a try

Sojo is the kind of Chinese restaurant that makes you feel that you can't possibly go anywhere else. As a fan of Chinese food I have felt defeated in recent years in finding a restaurant which is fresh, tasty and affordable. China town in London seems to have hit a pretty low ebb of late and the best food I've... More

I am a bit addicted to this restaurant. My husband and I go in here a lot and always have a lovely meal. My absolute favourite is Miao Clan - chicken in a clay pot. The salt and pepper squid is awesome as well. And if meat is very much your thing, try the pork hock. It's probably best to... More

We were recommended to eat here by several others and we now know why. At first glance the menu does not appear to be that different from the many scores of other Chinese restaurants I have eaten at. However, once the food starts arriving, you soon see a diffenece when you start to eat. the flavours and quality of the... More
