I love Chinese food, sadly Chinese food doesn’t love me. But at So Jo, it was different, great food, the menu is fairly small, something I think is always a good sign of a restaurant that cooks fresh. Really tasty, good wine selection and the...More

Dim sum is very average. Not freshly made, appears to be pre-prepared frozen dim sum that you can from the supermarket across the road. The yellow prawns were good but a bit bland while the stir fried beef rice noodles were far too oily and...More

Fairly good Chinese dishes, tasteful to me. The service is also great. My wife lost her coat there and found it back by the servant.

Really tasty authentic Chinese food (confirmed by Chinese friends) at reasonable prices, not cheap but you get what you pay for. Recommend salt and pepper squid, Sojo seafood ho-fun noodles, tofu dishes always good. You won't get better Chinese food in Oxford,

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times previously and enjoyed the authentic Chinese menu. However, on our recent visit, the food tasted quite differently. The Singapore noodles lacked spice and seasoning and the rice vermicelli was over cooked thus became soggy. The...More
