Booked a table for Sunday evening, we arrived a bit early but the staff was fine with that and very friendly and polite. We were served quickly with pipping hot and delicious food. I recommend the takoyaki for starter as they are the best I ever had. The door leading to the garden was open and one member of staff asked us if we wanted to have it shut as it was rainy and windy outside. I would definitely book again and recommend to anyone who love Korean and Japanese food, they have a very good selection.

Been to Soho several times before and always amazing food and service, not sure what went wrong this visit but service slow and I had to send food back, it was so tough I could not easy it, I reordered and the second choice was OK. I was also charged for the food I could not eat, when highlighted it was removed of the bill.

Overall a disappointing visit this time..... Not sure if I'll be back

Had booked weeks ago for 8:00. Got there and table was not ready. Took us downstairs and gave us a drinks menu. We ordered Margaritas but they had no Cointreau. Another couple came after us who had also booked for 8:00. They complained. So they got the first available table at 8:30. We decided to leave. Quite disappointing

Really poor experience. Food all tasted the same, 3 of our party were ill afterwards. Food served at different times. For 5 people, a starter, a main & 2 beers was £40 per person. Expensive for a disappointing meal. Wouldn’t recommend or return.

This was an amazing night for my first time eating out since lock down. The food was delicious and the staff were amazing taking all covid precautions whilst also giving us the full experience you would normally expect. They were full of knowledge when asking questions about the food and accommodating when I wanted a medium spice on the udon noodle soup. Will definitely be back again!

Best sushi in Newcastle! We ordered take-out from Soho throughout lockdown 2 and 3 and couldn’t wait to get back in the restaurant as soon as possible! The wee outdoor terrace is gorgeous, well covered and we felt really well looked after whilst eating there again. Can’t wait to go back as soon as I’m back in Newcastle!

The restaurant looked amazing as we are in covid time we weren’t aloud to sit in the bar area so we sat outside. Fair enough it was cold and raining like it almost does every day in Newcastle but they had made the effort of putting up some rain cover so we didn’t get soaked. We ordered drinks and our food and it was everything that I dreamed it to be even better. The food was just outstanding I can’t wait to go back. And it made it that all better with great service too. Would 100% go back!!

We visited this beautiful restaurant for the first time on Tuesday! I must say the outside area is lovely. The staff were amazing, the food was out of this world and not to mention the value for money. Will definitely be back again soon! We both work in hospitality and agreed this is a top notch little find!
Thank you for a lovely evening xx

It is slightly out of the way for the standard city centre hustle and bustle (thankfully), only a very small distance up a side road and easy to locate if you know its there - we didn't - it's opposite Barker and Stonehouse.

Sat outside due to covid on the small veranda. Freezing cold so could of benefited from a patio heater as it was only 6 degrees - hence only 3 for ambience.

Food and service was impeccable and faultless. Will definitely be visiting again once we can either eat indoors or its a little warmer.

We ate from the Korean menu and shared 2 small plates, 1 side dish, 1 main with rice and Sushi - 8 pieces. Not too much and perfect for 2 people.
Lovely food, very well priced & very good service.

Delightful food on our visit to the restaurant. There was no takoyaki which was disappointing, but we were offered a chicken alternative, which was delicious. The buns we had for starter were nice too, with the teriyaki beef. The miso lamb was a highlight of our visit with the lamb cooked to perfection and the accompanying sauce full of flavour. Will definitely be visiting again and ordering the lamb.

We had an excellent meal here on Saturday night. The staff were lovely and welcoming. The food was fantastic. You can choose between the Japanese or South Korean menu, or go for sushi, or mix and match!
We’d highly recommend and look forward to returning.
We felt safe with the current restrictions and how seriously these were taken by the staff and other diners.

Amazing food and already want to go back!
Our table was ready straight away even though we were early and led straight there. The staff were very attentive and polite. No long waits for food and drinks either.
When the food came, everything was so delicious!! We were even grateful that we could bring some home in a takeaway box.
Would really recommend to anyone!
