Description: Modern in its minimalist use of dark wood, clean lines and bare-as-a-baba���s-wotsit walls, Soho���s So looks every bit the contemporary Japanese restaurant. The airy ground floor bar, dining area and shop-of-sorts (Japanese crockery sits prettily in numerous display cabinets) leads down to a main dining room. The furniture there is still wooden but stained almost black. The cooking is consistently very good ��� creative without being fussy, and much of it using organic ingredients. Menu in hand, make a visual beeline for the tempura selections (gorgeous), and then Grilled list. These knockout dishes ��� most notably the Wagyu rump, and Iberico pork ��� are cooked in the open kitchen over a rather special yogan-yaki grill resulting in an unique flavour. Friendly staff will knowledgeably suggest dishes and drinks.

Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Superb value for individual sushi and sashimi but platters are quite expensive though both are absolutely superb.
Would recommend highly

“Excellent Sushi”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Great atmosphere, perfect food, good prices.

Lots of Japanese customers that clearly states that is an authentic Sushi Restaurant not like "Nobu" which is waste of money...

“Quality Sushi”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We happened upon So after seeing a movie with our sons. It was one of the only restaurants still open at that hour and we were so hungry and cold that we overlooked the steep prices. The place is too quiet for kids, but it was so late, there was only one other party of 2 businessmen. The food was fresh and delicious, but quite expensive for the serving you receive. We had sashimi, sushi, soup, salad and the panko chicken for the youngest son. It was all fabulous. I would eat there every day if I could afford it.

“Superb Japanese cuisine”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Genuine Japanese restaurant, offering a really good diverse menu and a nice atmosphere. Make sure you book, as it can get busy, but always worth the effort.

“Good Japanese food”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The prices are quite high here, but it is central London and Japanese cuisine seems to be quite trendy, so I think prices reflect that.
That being said, the food was faultless. Salmon Teriyaki was very good and so was my friend's sushi. The service was excellent- polite and considerate.
We visited a few times and never had a problem with getting a table without reservation. Will certainly visit again.
