If you like real Chinese food, and haven't been to SoJo, you should go. It was recommended to me by a Chinese friend living in the UK, and since then I've been whenever it fits with my visits to Oxford. Extensive menu of genuine Chinese dishes (including Sichuan specialities I hadn't seen since I was working in Beijing, as well... More

The place was crowded, but service was still excellent. Had appetizers and three entree's in our group. All food was delicious! Menu selection was varied, something for everyone. Even the dishes we saw going by to other tables looked great. The only downside to our dining was that we were seated next to a group of six, and one man... More

The food is great, and been a few times, and each time it is better than I remember. Meat and fish is so tender. Service is always good, and they are always happy to answer any questions on the menu; which is massive by the way. The dim sum are amazing!! Place is always busy, great atmosphere. We went as...

We have never had a bad meal in this restaurant. One of the things which always strikes you is the number of Chinese dining here …. a good sign. The place is always busy - so book first. The atmosphere is always lively … The service is abrupt but efficient … Love the place.

Fantastic food. There was eight of us answer all went with the set menu just to be easy and we are glad we did it. It was £25 a head and it was an authentic dining experience. My boyfriend has eaten at many different Chinese restaurants and thinks this one is one the best. There was however communication difficulties over... More

Visited SoJo for the first time recently. I had heard good things about it and wasn't disappointed. An excellent choice of dishes ranging from the usual favourites to the more spicy and adventurous. Well presented and delicious. Reasonably priced too. Will definitely come back.

The decoration, service and food were all unsurpassable. If you go to Oxford, don't miss out on SoJo thinking it's going to be a run-of-the-mill Chinese: this place is amazing. But make sure you book: even on a rainy Tuesday evening in December it was fully booked.

This has got to be one of the best Chinese’s places to eat in Oxford, 4 of us dined and we all loved it, the food was fresh, the service was excellent and I cannot wait to go back.

There are a lot of bad Chinese restaurants in the UK, but SoJo isn't one of them. For a start it's usually full of Chinese students which is always a good sign and chopsticks are the default option. The food itself is freshly prepared and the service efficient and pleasant. The dim sum are particularly good and I also recommend... More

If you're looking for authentic Chinese cuisine, SoJo is the place to go. Try dim sum followed by the Crispy Duck. Delicious!
