A perfect place to stop for a delicious lunch whist out in Oxford. The food looked and tasted authentic was really very good and I certainly will visit again and recommend to others.

We were looking for a restaurant to meet up for a later than normal meal after arriving in Oxford. Using Trip Advisor for places near us, Osney Island, we happened upon SoJo. On arrival we were greeted and seated and browsed their extensive menu. There are some interesting options and this is not your standard Chinese fayre; although that is... More

I always get nervous about eating at new places in case somewhere 'looks good' but is disappointing. This was the other way round! Upon arrival, I got nervous because the restaurant looks quite shabby, more suitable for informal eating than a nice evening meal. However, there were quite a few people in and I had picked the place because of... More

If I had a Chinese granny this is how I would hope she cooked. Specialising in szechan food this place is amazing. Order course by course as it's amazing how quickly you get full up. We always start with a couple of appetisers, followed hybrid the crispy duck and then depending on numbers share a couple of main courses and... More

I visited SoJo for maybe the 10th time on Saturday. It was outstanding. I went with 2 of my kids who live Asian food and if you like authentic, spicy Szechuan cuisine the you should go. Szechuan chilli crispy beef , chicken in yellow bean sauce and a more mild chicken with soft needles for my daughter were all superb.... More

Before visiting SoJo as part of a work do I wasn't the biggest fan of Chinese food as my only experiences have been takeaways. This visit has 100% changed my views as the food was absolutely beautiful.

Really great food and a super friendly service, was perhaps a little on the slow side but we were part of a large group. I'd highly recommend letting the staff create a set menu for you if you go as a group, we got so much food and all of it was delicious. I'd highly recommend the green beans and... More

Good things first: the food is delicious and the service is super friendly even when it's busy. And I guess it's quite busy most of the time. But we only got our food 1,5h after arriving at the restaurant. The waiter also forgot our drinks. So plan to have plenty of time when coming here. Or maybe we just came... More

The food was excellent as usual and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We spent quite along time chatting and catching up and we never felt rushed or hurried out. Really relaxing place with great food.
