Great atmosphere, location and service but NOT authentic food

As a night out in Jeddah this is a restaurant worth paying for. From the moment you enter (even as you walk up to the restaurant) you feel in a calm, up market Asian environment. Unfortunately even though the service was exemplary the food while of good quality was not authentic Chinese/Japanese... read more

I dined at Soy during a business trip to Jeddah. The restaurant is beautifully appointed, very large with several dining areas on two floors and lots of room between tables. The lighting is a bit dim but subtly accents the surroundings. Service was highly efficient and attentive. The food was excellent; my party ordered the fried seaweed (which is unusual... More

Went there yesterday with a client, who has tried the place out and said it's as good as Tokio Joe's in Hong Kong, where i'm from. Following most of the reviews here, the atmosphere, decor and ambience are top notch. The owner has done a very good job (and probably spent a lot of money doing so), in creating a... More

Nice atmosphere but the food is not nearly as good as shogun or ajii, the maki was average at beat, we ordered beef with black pepper sauce which was good & tender, the rest wasn't bad but not worth going to again

I've had the pleasure and misfortune of going to most of the Chinese, Japanese and other Asian restaurants in Jeddah. The majority of them are pretty crap since they cater to the tastes locals want as opposed to actually being authentic. As a result they all end up looking and tasting the same regardless of price difference. Soy is an... More

Soy is one of its kind when it comes to the Decor and Ambiance. It's very "Zen" and comfy. My wife always finds it's too cold inside so I suggest you wear an extra layer to keep warm. The service is at its best and the staff is very friendly. The menu is diversified and the food is really good.... More
