SquareMeal Review of
Unassuming and authentic, tucked-away So is excellent for lunch, pre-theatre or general sushi fixes. Quality is high and 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 and tuna tataki to agedashi tofu and daily
vegetarian specials, with black cod and Australian Wagyu added for the big spenders. At lunchtime, cracking fixed-price menus and 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 and frontline views of the sushi chefs.
Downstairs is more romantic by night.
