Soma on Sunderland St has been on my radar for a while. We’ve been there 3 or 4 times now. What I do like about it is that chef/patron Neil cooks these mad fusion dishes that really work. It’s no specific genre of restaurant. Perhaps...More

Really great food, bit of a hidden gem in Macc. Definitely going back. It’s only a small place so well worth prebooking.

Go for the sharing menu. Absolutely wonderful. The steak is tender, the prawns are huge everything was fresh, tasty and different. Will be going back! Only slight downside was a limited choice of wine. Only small so book at weekends.

Can not recommend Soma highly enough, you wouldn’t have thought we were in Macc! Brilliant dishes, the teriyaki halloumi was insanely good as were the truffle and Parmesan fries. Edamame was a huge portion, well worth the prices. Spicy rice was actually spicy with lots...More
