Probably the best Chinese in Oxford

It's difficult to know what to expect from the Sojo looking through the dark frontage from outside but once inside and you taste the food you will know why this place is so popular. If you are not familiar with seeing so much variety on the menu, you may want to seek advice. They will steer you... read more

The service was extremely slow-nearly an hour and a half before we got our mains. No one asked if we wanted any more drinks either. We opted for a 'leave it to the chef' but emphasised that we didn't want any seafood as one of our friends is allergic. They brought out prawns and calamari!!!!! Pretty scary that they didn't...

we have lived in Oxford for over five years and this is by far our favourite restaurant. It is always busy and you need to make sure to book well in advance. The food is fresh and extremely tasty. There is a large menu that is very different from the standard boring Chinese affair you tend to find. I highly... More

We had a meal here on Saturday night, it was just amazing! Every single dish was a delight. The staff friendly, welcoming and efficient! I highly recommend if you like Chinese food as it's by far the best Chinese I've been too!

Sojo's is a gem of a place. We've eaten there a few times now and the food and service are consistently outstanding. I can't recommend this place enough.

We went at lunch time and ordered the set menu for £18 each. It was amazing. Very authentic, full of flavour and at good price. The service was great. They are very attentive. This was our second time and we loved it. Definitely recommed it.

This restaurant is outstanding. The menu is excellent, the service is great and the food is 10/10! Great decor and vibe to the place, would recommend for a date or business or hanging out with friends. Maybe not one for younger children but definitely family appropriate. I go at least twice a year and haven't gotten bored of it. The... More

Couple for (late) lunch. We had the set meal for two, which at @ £18 a head was excellent value. Crispy duck starter was fine. Then we were absolutely blown away by the Szechuan dishes of Red Peppercorn Deep Fried Spicy Prawns and the Spicy Beef & Aubergine. Accompanied by stir fried rice and a dish of crunchy vegetables this... More
