Great to sit up at the bar here and have very good yellowtail and mixed fish tempura with a very good Sake selection. Top Japanese.

Met a friend for dinner here, booked this place on spec. The food was delicious and the service great. You know you've booked well when Japanese people are eating there! Would go again.

We were in the west end and just fancied some sashimi. Came across So and it was perfect for us . The Sashimi and Sushi set at £19 was great value I thought. A large selection of Sake to accompany the food. Highly recommended and will return

OH. SO Japanese restaurant is SO GOOD and SO FRIENDLY. I had the Mixed Tempura. And Miso Soup with Grilled Black Chicken: Japanese tea and a beer. It was a fair cost. About £40. But it is LONDON and was a great treat. I had my assistance dog with me and they welcomed us both. Luka even had a bowl... More

My sister and I love sushi and this was definitely the best place I've been to. My sister came before for a sushi making class and then recommended we go for dinner. Definitely the place to visit if in London and you if just having some good, fresh food for not such prices.

Introduced to this delightful little restaurant just a few minutes' walk from Piccadilly Circus, I was impressed by the level of service, the attention to details and the taste of this small restaurant's delicious food. Miso soup, Tempura Vegetables, Teriyaki Chicken, a flight of specially selected Sake (all room temperature) and a chilly bottle of Sapporo lager. An excellent lunch... More

Excellent food. Great fresh served food. tempura, yakatori and salmon teriyaki. Also fantastic sake, we had Ginjo and Junmai Daiginjo. I would give 4 1/2 but that's not an option. The only reason for the downgrade to 4 stars is that I felt the cost was a tad high for the surroundings and ambience which was casual..... Cost was fine... More

2 people went on a Saturday night and had an amazing time. Reserved ahead and were seated immediately. Drinks were great, sushi was so fresh and incredibly tasty! Staff was extremely accommodating and so sweet, we would go back just for staff's manners! Best sushi in london and also decent prices!

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.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
