I thought I was in for a real treat, based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor. Whilst it was a pleasant enough meal it didn't really live up to the hyperbole. I went at 5pm, the restaurant was deserted but still the waitress asked 'had I booked' and looked around as though trying to decide whether she could squeeze me... More

We have been eating in sojo for about two years now. I had been past it many times & thought from the outside it looked a bit shabby , mainly due to the smoked glass frontage. But once inside we were pleasantly surprised how light & modern the interior was. The service is always attentive without being overbearing. When it... More

This place deserve more than the maximum 5 stars; it is simply amazing. We had a fabulous meal with friends last night, there were six of us in total and none of us knew what we wanted, which could be a nightmare for staff. Not here; our waitress was so helpful and based on us telling her what we liked... More

Fantastic variety of dishes that you would not see in a conventional Chinese restaurant, I particularly love the Hock leg and Duck in plum sauce...uummmm I would also advise any one to try their milk tea. The styling is great for a narrow restaurant and the service is prompt and very helpful. I have lived here in Oxford for 8... More

Wow. You cannot really say more about a place that is so professionally accurate in the way that they cook their food, that it becomes an art form and sets the bar really high for other restaurants to follow. I have been in here multiple times for friends birthdays and even my wedding anniversaries, and this is the best place... More

My friend and I went for a very late lunch last Saturday. I had the beef aubergine, very hot, but enjoyable, while my friend had the vegetable curry, which was quite the opposite, very bland. We both had green tea and We shared some lychees for dessert all for £21. A nice lunch but not extraordinary. I would like to... More

We went on an ordinary Monday night at 7.30 - and I'm glad we booked, as it was busy! I had a very disappointing meal here once, a year or so ago (my lamb was essentially fat, rather than meat) but a close friend raves about it and I've eaten here very happily a couple of times since. The best... More

I've been going to Sojo for many years now. It is without a doubt the best chinese restaurant in town and I would venture to say in Oxford. For the hot food lovers I recommend Sechuan beef aubergine and Shechuan glass noodles. I also love the salt and pepper squid and their fillo prawns. The duck salad is always a... More

I visited SoJo in early June 2014; we have recently moved to the area. The restaurant is close to the train station and is only a few minutes walk away from the centre of the city. I am Chinese by descent, and was intrigued that The Times food correspondent felt they had had the best Chinese meal in years at... More
