Great choice some not found at other Chinese restaurants. Slightly salty in two dishes, but am not used to too much salt. Good service and prices, can recommend .

Service is NOT what one would expect at a Chinese restaurant of the standard Sojo portray themselves to be. They are unwilling, only smile to one another when they chat while 'servicing' customers. And it is one of the very few restaurants in Oxford which add a 10% service charge to your bill. With regard to food, some great dishes,... More

I have been here a couple of times now at lunch time. The first time I had a beef and black bean rice bowl and the second time I had special Ho Fun noodles. I have also had a selection of their dim sum which were also quite tasty. The food here is fresh and delicious and portion sizes are... More

This great restaurant serves really delicious, authentic food. The portions are enormous and very well priced and the menu is extensive. There's always a lovely busy atmosphere in the restaurant, but you feel very well cared for.

Didnt actually get as far as eating here... Booked a table for 6 a week in advance as we wanted visitors to Oxford to try the food here. The restaurant called at lunchtime, on the day of the booking, to cancel because the restaurant is closed this evening "for maintenance". Very poor customer service.

Sojo never disappoints. Whilst it's not somewhere for a romantic meal for two, it is a fantastic place to eat quality Chinese / Mongolian food. It's a great place to go with a group of friends and order a bunch of dishes to share. I particularly recommend the Salt & Pepper Spicy Squid, the Shanghai Braised Sweet Soy Pork Hock... More

Sojo is without doubt the best Chinese restaurant I have been to in Oxford. The great thing is the menu is not just your standard Chinese fare and contains loads of interesting alternatives. There are also quite a few spicier dishes that you wouldn't normally find on a standard Chinese menu. The salt pepper and chilli squid is absolutely to... More

The food was fine but the staff were terrible. My food came late after the whole group had received theirs and I received no apology or explanation. The waitress who served us had no manners and was rude throughout and tried to make me pay for more than I owed. I will never go back to Sojo.

Fantastic food (try the salt and pepper squid, the beef and aubergine and the green beans with pork) and a relaxed atmosphere. Many levels above the usual standard of Oriental food in the UK. Never fails to impress.

Having seen Giles Corens review I was expecting great things, not what I can get from my local takeaway in Ramsgate, which is on a par and not in a good way Mixed starters were the usual prawn toast, spring rolls etc and dull, dull, dull Crispy beef just fried strips , heavily battered in too much chilli sauce.
