“Good food average service very busy.”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

A good authentic Chinese restaurant none of that takeaway gunk here. Good selection on the menu. We had reserved a table it was clean when we arrived. The place was really busy. A friend recommended this place to us. Only problem was that the portions were rather small.

All in all a good time but do remember to book and don't be late as they will pawn your table off the the highest bidder.

“Worst attitude from manager”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Booked a table and reserved. Arrived and was told they had given the table to someone else. And then had the nerve to say it is our fault. They asked for our telephone number and didn't bother contacting us before giving table away. The attitude from manager was the worst, only blame you and no solution what so ever . There are so much better restaurants in the area. Do not go here , really bad management and expect to be shouted at .

“Authentic Chinese food, amazing choice, great service”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Service was a bit slow to start with but the place was (as it often is) heaving and there were 15 of us. The staff coped with us brilliantly, were knowledgeable about the food and portion size for sharing purposes.
The food, as always, was divine. The best non-anglosized Chinese I've come across and the crowd of natives that hang out here says it all really.
Initimate enough for just the two of you to dine but enough ambience for a large group to blend in.

“Very good indeed”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Recommended to us by our b&b, we found SoJo to be the best Chinese restaurant we've ever been to, including any in London, with very tasty and interesting food in large portions for a very reasonable price. Only ever once eaten better Chinese food when cooked at home by Chinese people.

Would certainly go back again.

Also have to say nobody mentioned anything about 2 hours to us. We were there for all that and a few minutes more.

“Superb!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

First time to this restaurant but definitely not the last time. Authentic Chinese cuisine. Staff were so helpful in advising on choice - one of the party liked very spicy the other no spice! We were not rushed and spent 3 hours over lunch.
