Better than Shanghai 30's

Loved the food and the prompt service. If you wanted a romantic dinner and have got the time, got to Shanghai 30's. SoJo's is a busy place with fast waiting staff service fast-served food. Just the place if you want a pre-theatre/cinema plate of tasty food.

Yes it's fast and furious and I can see why previous reviewer might have found the greeting a bit rebuffing. My stepson described them as 'hardcore' in that they don't hold your table for longer than ten minutes. But our waitress on a busy Saturday night was utterly charming and great fun. Atmosphere packed, loud but doable. Food came as... More

I went to Sojo with the highest expectations, based on my reading of its own write up. I would find out that Sojo is actually a sister restaurant of Opium Den -- which all the more geared me up for it. I staked it out for lunch once, only to find that it is closed. I came a couple of... More

I've been to Sojo many times, including for my 21st birthday, and have never been disappointed! Slow-cooked pork is definitely something to be recommended, and the dim sum is gorgeous, but I'd always recommend letting the waiter know your budget then letting them bring you the chef's recommendation, provided you're not a fussy eater! Very careful with allergies.

I always enjoy! Food is great and ambiance conducive. Salt pork dish was a particular favourite. I will return, for sure.

I had heard good reviews about SoJo from our friends, who have visited previously. Unfortunately, my first experience will probably be my last (unless dragged along with friends). I booked a table for four for Friday night for my daughter's birthday. On arrival (on time as I had been told they will only hold the table for 10 minutes), we... More

Sojo serves brilliant Szechuan food. It's utterly consistent and always enjoyable. However, having to contend with rude, aggressive, bullying service from the male owner would probably prevent me from returning there, unless he could be guaranteed to be absent. This man seriously needs to re-evaluate how he deals with people. We watched him drive away a table of 4 people... More

I visited this establishment on a day trip to Oxford, having chosen it via its glowing TripAdvisor reviews. On entry you notice that it was very busy, the restaurant clearly has a avid following. The decor is a bit more contemporary than usual which sets it apart from the usual Chinese experience. The waiter/owner (guy in a turtle neck top)... More

Visited yesterday for the first time following reviews on TripAdvisor. This made an excellent change from the buffet we usually frequent (Oxy Oriental) or the very-good Asian-Pacific restaurant near us (Cockadoo). We were very pleased to find that the good reviews were justified. The service is personal and the owner took care to make sure we had the best possible... More
