Unassuming & authentic, tucked-away So is excellent for lunch, pre-theatre or general sushi fixes. Quality is high, & some of the food is memorably good, for example home-smoked duck or a mackerel timber roll that is substantial enough to sate raw-fish cravings in a single dish. The menu offers decent variety, from teriyaki chicken & tuna tataki to agedashi tofu & daily vegetarian specials, with black cod & Australian Wagyu added for the big spenders. At lunchtime, cracking fixed-price menus & chirashi sushi (sashimi served over rice) start around £7; otherwise, the sushi set weighs in at £16 – one of the West End’s better deals. For your money, you also get a charming dining room, with counter seats & frontline views of the sushi chefs. Downstairs is more romantic by night.
