“Sozo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Called in after church on Sunday, arriving about noon. We were given a seat near the windows. The table was made of industrial steel and the other tables were made of huge cable bobbins even the stair rails were made of industrial pipe. It was quite unique. The service was excellent and a young lady with red hair was a first class host. We ordered from a varied and interesting menu. I had a
lovely Mediterranean bread platter. A first class restaurant where I hope to be back soon.

“Fantastic Food, Service and Drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

In Sozo a few days ago. Loved the ambience, it's cool and funky, like nothing else out there. Food and service was top class, all washed down with a pint of Asahi. Perfect!

“yums!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

I've been to Sozo several times and the food is always lovely, whether it's in for a sit down dinner, grabbing a quick bite for lunch or taking food out. The staff are always friendly and there is always a good atmosphere.

The takeout food is a life saver! If you're trying to be good and don't want to go for a curry or chip you can get lasagne, noodles, stew to take out and they're good size portions and a good price.

The chilli is the star of the menu - you have to try it!

“Hygiene???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Ok, this is a pretty nice coffee shop which I haven't rated before because I've only been in when it was really busy and I didn't think it fair to rate them then. I recently had tea and a scone while it was pretty empty and I was quite impressed. What wasn't impressive was a waitress who while making sandwiches, handled everything with her bare hands, all the ingredients....
