SoJo is one of those places I gladly return to time and time again, especially when wanting to impress visitors to Oxford. I've always dined as part of a large group, and the best results have without doubt been when we simply ask the staff for "some food", with a vague indication of how many vegetable dishes. Do this and... More

Happy, friendly, efficient, helpful staff - service as it should be. Food is great. Nothing much else to say... oh yes, faultless.

I went with two American friends as this was the top rated Chinese restaurant in Oxford and had been visited by Giles Coren, admittedly in 2009. Booking is advised as the place was heaving on the two successive nights we visited. The menu is extensive and you are spoilt for choice. The Chicken with Godmother's Sauce (my dish) was excellent...

The food is nice and authentic, the waiters have always been very hospitable and it is a generally clean restaurant as well. Would recommend

We've been to many Chinese restaurants in London and are often disappointed when food is too oily or bland or the veg options are non-existent. SoJo was a breath of fresh air and I wish they would move to London!! The salt and pepper squid and tofu were spicy and so delicious. The portions of both starters and main were... 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...

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 through the different... More
