Half of our group got a food poisoning either from the food or the suspicious beer they served. Having been in the contact with them, they assured me that it’s not possible their food/drinks were the cause of poisoning, however it’s the only possibility so...be careful of their food and drinks. In conclusion we’ve vomited for whole day.More

The main courses were very very salty and soaked with soya sauce. We ate the cashew chicken and the pepper beef. The only taste we felt was soya and salt. Maybe thats the reason the place is called Soya. The dessert ,the fried bannana was...also uneatable because it was soaked with oil. Although the food was very dissapointing , the waiters were very friendly .More

Good place for comfort food. Nice interior and atmosphere. Try the tasting menu 👍 Dim sum was tasty! The rice was overcooked.

As I write this and look back at Bergen, I realize we had several non-local cuisine options while visiting. Starting out our night with the dim sum mix, we got to try several flavors of dumplings. Never a bad choice for us with dumplings and...these were very flavorful and each one had a completely different spice profile. A very good start to the meal. For our main meal we tried the Pang Pang Beef and the Braised Pork Rice. These as well were very different from each other. The smokiness of the braised pork was obvious in the rice and the chili sauce with the beef blended the flavors of the crunchy vegetables perfectly. A good example of traditional Chinese with some modern additions. The service was quick and friendly and we enjoyed a nice and quiet meal.More

The restaurant had fantastic food. I've never had better chicken fried rice. The dumplings were very good and the tempura prawns were terrific. And even though the restaurant was packed (Saturday 8 pm), there was absolutely no problem with the service. The servers were friendly...and very good at their jobs.More

Terrible service and the staff was rude. They forgot us all together, and when they first took the order, they forgot it, when we got the food, we got the wrong dishes as well… The staff was very rude to us.

Sunday evening meal at Soya. Decided to try have Dim sum. Service was fast, pleasant even though there was only one person serving & about 5 tables occupied. Food was fresh, plenty of sauces. The restaurant is well decorated with a good ambience. Had the...mango sago dessert - probably too sweet for us as it was mango puree rather than a mousse. Lovely meal.More

Food was decent nothing special. However, Gokan (probably spelled the name wrong) is the best server! He receives 5 star rating. I ordered duck and shrimp dumpling, it was “ok plus” other than that my friends were generally happy/ok.

I wanted to eat here as the restaurant was adjacent to the hotel I was staying in (Bergen Harbour Hotel), it was raining and the menu looked good. However I was on my own, and I believe the man who refused me a table possibly...has an issue with women dining alone. Although it was Friday night I was told that this is not the busiest night for Bergen restaurants, and there were certainly vacant tables when I went in. I told the man I was staying in the hotel and asked if he could call me when a table became free which is when he told me there would never be a table free that evening. I walked past later and as I thought, there were lots of free tables and the restaurant was still open. I was also told that as the restaurant was part of my hotel they would give us 15% off our food. The waiter knew I was staying at the hotel but he did not mention this at all, and I only found out later. I am writing a review as although I did not eat in the restaurant I did order food and took it back to the hotel I was staying in and ate it there. I ordered the tiger prawns and scallops in Szechuan sauce. It arrived with a bowl of white rice and despite my unfortunate encounter with the mendacious waiting staff, the food was excellent, spiced just right, with the right amount of heat. It was 290 NK or about £25 which is a lot if buying in the UK but about right for Norway, although there was no discount to recognise the fact it was a take out (or the 15% mentioned for hotel residents). Eating out alone on a Friday night is a little daunting for many solo women, and being refused a table when there were clearly empty tables doesn’t give any additional confidence. I am staying 3 nights and will be braver and walk further (even in the rain) for my next two dinners, rather than facing that man againMore

Drinks were served without any delays, food came more or less simultaneous for all 13 guests, wines were very well tempered, and the waiter "Utlendingen" made the evening a very pleasant visit. If room for improvement, the lobster could have been a bit less grilled....Saying that, still a fantastic meal!!More

Eaten in here a number of times; keep coming back Service is excellent and very efficient. Food, when it's good, it's excellent Ate in here 3 times in a week and had the same szechuan beef (very spicy) Each time it was slightly different the...way it was prepared, which lacks consistency; not sure whether the chef changes in the week? Would like to know every time I go that it's going to look and taste the same. In any event, I'll be back soon as when it's done right, the szechuan beef is unbeatable. Well worth a visit.....More

Medium priced Asian food of not even medium quality. Table not set for the number of booked people. Only a few glasses for the tab water from plastic carafes. Plates chipped and lemonade comes in their plastic bottle. Interior looks fine otherwise. Peking duck is...a very small portion and Pang Pang Biff has no bang what so ever.More
