Sozo is a very nice little Bistro in the centre of Carrickfergus. It has recently been refurbished and is very nice. The staff are friendly and the food is very good. It can get extremely busy but don't be put off it is worth the wait.

I've been here a few times and have to confess that the burrito mains and onion rings (as a side) are unreal. The onion rings are the best for miles. A great price too. Please Sozo, don't change things for the sake of change. Keep everything as is.

I call in sometimes for coffee and bagels with cream cheese. Their food is good and there are a few tables and chairs outside. It is in a pedestrian area. They have a regular clientelle and sometimes get busy.

Sozo is well worth a visit. We nipped in for breakfast this morning. Our mini fry was cooked to perfection!! Was the perfect start to our day. The service & atmosphere is every bit as good as the food! Definitely not to be missed. Looking forward to the next visit!!

I ordered a sandwich combo deal for £3.99. Which included a coke, crisps and sandwich. The ceasar chicken sandwich was plain, bland and dry and on cheap white bread :( I asked to eat in and was therefore charged £6 which I refused to pay as the menu and board didn't state that the £4 deal was for takeaway only....
