The food was very well prepared and presented. Definitely better than most Chinese restaurants I have eaten in. Every component of my dish of tofu with mixed vegetables was cooked perfectly, as was the egg fried rice - lovely fluffy rice without greasiness. The service was very good despite the restaurant being very busy. The prices were reasonable. If I'm... More

Was really excited to be going to SoJo as we'd read so many good reviews. Didn't even make it to the table after truly appalling customer service as we waited patiently for our table. We arrived on time for our booking but all the tables were full. Not a problem as we could see a large table were waiting to... More

The menu at Sojo is HUGE. I mean really, really huge. This is always a bit of a concern for the veggie; I wasn’t particularly looking forward to having to rifle through pages and pages of dishes in order to try and pick out the veggie options. Once again, however, Sojo subverted my expectations. Helpfully, Sojo have a separate vegetarian... More

This place never fails, the food is spot on. We tried the dim sum this time and we were glad we did, actually very good indeed. We also had a whole sea bass dish which was covered in chillies, you'd think it would blow your head off but actually it wasn't too hot. Don't get me wrong it was spicy... More

The menu is great for dim sum and Mongolian dishes. My favourite is Szechuan style as they do very nice dishes in this style. They do some funky stuff with aubergine as well. The mood lighting is great for couples

Went there for my birthday party with friends. Very well decorated, great Shanghai food, friendly staff, and not too expensive. Strongly recommend the sweet&sour sea bass.

I visited sojo having been there on previous occasions and enjoyed the food. I thought it would be worth the hours drive for a leaving Christmas meal for my boyfriend.  Unfortunately on attempting to leave having paid our bill we were confronted and shouted at by the boss/ manager who insisted we pay the 10% service charge which in the...

The first bite into the dish that I ordered was absolutely amazing! Various of flavours exploded into my mouth, it was absolutely worth the wait. The service was great. The restaurant had a authentic display, it was quite original. (from the ones named after the restaurant,)
