Isn't it lovely when you go to a Chinese restaurant and eat food you haven't tried before and it turns out to be DELICIOUS!!! That was Sojo last night, folks. Okay, three of us, me not very hungry due to large late lunch. Starters - crispy duck with pancakes - nothing unusual, but very nice all the same. Dim sum... More

Authentic Chinese restaurant in Hythe Bridge St., the best I've had in Oxford. I have been here few times during this year and it has always been perfect. I really appreciated soups, soft noodles with spicy king prawns and many dishes that you can't find in the most Chinese restaurants and takeaways. The portions are big and there is a... More

I have been here many times since I 'discovered' it a few years ago. I have never had a bad dish! All main courses I've had were excellent. Fresh ingredients, wonderful combinations of spices, and every dish is sufficiently different for you to want to try them all! One small warning: the hot dishes (3 and 2 chillies) are hot!

Always enjoy my visits to Sojo. It's a bit more towards the pricey end of the spectrum but portion sizes are excellent and there is a wide range of dishes. Never had any problems with staff and always recommend to friends. Adore their sweet and sour chicken.

Visited Sojo twice for lunch during our 5 day stay in Oxford. Enjoyed the cod and tofu soup more than enough for three; pork and pickled mustard; Chinese greens with garlic sauce, and chicken, mushroom, water chestnut with lettuce leaves. The special noodle dish and the oyster omelette were a bit salty for our tastes. Good service

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.
