Loved the food and the ambience. Cocktails (mocktails in our case) are great. Especially loved the king prawn curry, but everything was really nice.
The only thing is that music was too loud, I don’t see the point as you are supposed to talk and interact with others while having dinner.
Even though it’s a 5 star for me and we will come back , I just hope next time music will not be so loud!

Went for the bottomless brunch. The drinks offered were alright. I’ve been to Sohe a few times before and the food was great but this time it was a bit disappointing. We had the chicken katsu curry and the king prawn curry and they were both just ok.
The sharing starters were really good though.

First time for all of us but had been highly recommended and we were not disappointed. All 3 dishes really yummy and delicious. Cocktails made the evening experience feel special. Waitor service excellent as we had to have the dishes explained to us which he did patiently and very well. We would all go back a second time.

Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere. It was fairly busy but we didn't feel enclosed, it was spacious and other tables were far enough away to not feel encroached on. Quick service, very pleasant friendly staff

The vegan food options I found delicous. I had the spring rolls and then the tofu and brocoli stir fry, delicious and full of flavour! The two that had the chilli squid were struggling with the spice and ended up sweating a bit so fair warning. Staff were lovely very friendly and attentive, frequently returning to check on us and asking if we neeed anything, drinks etc. There aren't any happy hours or lunch menus that I've seen so it can be a pricey lunch but the food is exceptional so much so I have returned and I'm normally the kind that looks for a 3 course set lunch menu at a reasonable price

Bottomless brunch was a waste of money. Felt very much as if the staff had forgotten us with us prompting them for service. A drinks order was not taken for a least 15 minutes after sitting down at the table. Raised this directly and was offered extended time. However, I had plans arranged for my friends who were visiting. I had less drinks than what I would usually have with a meal for 90 minutes. When discussed this with a member of staff, I was told that I had landed unlucky. Very poor customer service.

We went for Bottomless brunch, which was a really interesting twist with an Asian Offering. Great food, great drinks, with really high end cocktails. A fair price for really good food & service in a clean contemporary environment. Thanks to the bar team who really looked after us.
