My wife and I had a quick lunch in So's Kitchen. The staff were very friendly and the service was efficient. The food was tasty and well presented. The green tea was very good too. An excellent no-nonsense and good value experience.

We have been frequenting So's Kitchen for years. This place has an informal, canteen-like feel to it, simply decorated, compact and cosy.

That would be a mistake because there are specialty Chinese dishes here that are gems even for the seasoned connoisseur, like Jer Jer Chicken... More

We ordered in a feast from So's Kitchen for New Year's Eve last year and the food was delicious - one of the best Chinese takeaways we've had! Highly recommended. Generous portion sizes as well so we had some left over for the next day. Looking forward to next time!

Very close to Woking Travelodge where we were staying. So's Kitchen is 'no frills' but it is clean and staff were very attentive. Had a very nice fresh meal and were able to bring your own drinks which helps to keep costs down. would not hesitate to eat there again.

Really my favourite Chinese restaurant. Hearty portion sizes means that I've never been left hungry when getting a main from here. There's nice dim sum and being able to bring in one's own alcoholic drinks limits spending too much. I've never been unhappy going to So's. I think the fact that there's always Chinese clientele in there is a good... More

We've eaten in here a couple of times and every time it's been great. The staff are really friendly and the food is always well cooked. The menu has lots of choice and it's great value for money. The dim sum here is amazing. This time we had their set menu for one. The sweet and sour chicken balls were... More

My favourite place to eat. Very informal, great food and you can bring your own drinks! There price you pay here is second to none, cheap and cheerful! Would definitely recommend over and over! Always had a nice time here, the bubble teas are also a nice novelty

Absolutely awful. Worst Chinese I've ever had. Avoid it like the plague. Deep fried aubergine and chicken weren't cooked properly. The other dishes were like soup.

Great freshly cooked Chinese food. Wonderful value for money. Take your own wine or beer. Specialities well worth trying.
