I had a blast at SoSo last weekend for my birthday! Tabitha, our host, was absolutely amazing. All the staff are so knowledgeable of the menu as well. They had great recommendations. Also, the staff always slays! Super trendy and friendly. Hennia was another standout SoSo staff member that made me and my guests feel so welcome! This place has become my new fav hotspot in the city. Love the drinks, the food is SoSo good, and the lighting is amazing for pictures. I love that there's a female security guard too! I feel SoSo safe in this space! Ladies if you wanna have a good time and not feel uncomfortable on the dance floor...go here! It was a safe place to dance for sure :) Each time I've gone to SoSo I've witnessed couples who looked so in love. I feel like this space welcomes so much love and positivity. The atmosphere of the restaurant really draws in a great crowd of diverse people with all around good vibes. SoSo is a gogo!

There’s a big mood and aesthetic here that’s not worth it. The restaurant is dark, music is loud, and the food is expensive for the portions you get. The dan dan noodles were probably the best thing on the menu but that’s about it.

I had wanted to visit this restaurant for a long time but was severely disappointed by the food. Every dish had very little flavour. The worst was the noodle dish with peanuts - it was so greasy and had zero flavour! On top of the tasteless food the music was so loud we had to tell to talk to each other.

Would never recommend or come here again. Was surprised how bad the meal was despite the hype!

We were sat in the back room, which didn't have great acoustics to help with a few loud and boisterous groups we were sat with. We could barely hear each other, which dampened the evening. Our server was really nice and helpful, but unfortunately overworked with what seemed like a section that was too big. Our apps came after our mains and one drink never came at all. Our appetizer got taken off the bill, but it was still a disappointing experience.

Almost everything was amazing, food, ambiance, service. The only caveat was that we made a reservation at 10:15 and last call for food is at 10:30 so I felt a bit rushed and unable to order more. It also turned into a bar so my date and I were yelling at each other over the noise of the crowd. If I had known it turns into a bar I would have not made a reso to enjoy 15 min of eating and talking.

I found that the food was sub-par and was also overpriced for the quantity and quality that you got. I much prefer Hanmoto and other neighbouring restaurants that offer a similar style on fusion, but at a better value and better quality.

Great atmosphere! Music and drinks were all fantastic however, the food was incredibly disappointing.

There was no sauce on the Chinese burger, making it very bland. There was also nothing to it... no pickled veg? Just pork in a bun? Didn’t taste anything else, I also couldn’t see it (the place is really dark). It was also cut into two, very uneven portions- we were a table of 3, it would have been great to know it was two portions or for the waitress to offer any accommodations (bring a third portion for an extra charge?).

The soup dumplings were good (comprable to other ones in the city).

The duck confit rice was the most disappointing dish of the night; it was covered in a massive leaf (we were given no instructions on how to eat it) the rice had a pudding-like texture and had approximately 4 small bites of duck (the size of a penny). No duck flavour, nothing that stood out to be honest.

The rice cakes were massive (not the plate, each slice) and the sauce was a bit bland- more salt maybe? It called out 5 types of mushrooms yet I only saw one (here and there). We had to cover them in your hot sauce (pretty good!) to get any flavour. Texture was super off (glue/rubber)

The pork belly was delicious, perfectly cooked and fatty piece of pork (we all loved it).

It was a big miss. I’m a huge fan of all your other restaurants. This one is very instagramable, you did a great job with the environment. The food is absolutely not worth it.

Relatively far from downtown Toronto. Excellent decor. Moderate level of noise. Slightly difficult to get waiter's attention to come to the table. Food was pretty good but not exceptional.

We came on a Monday night for the Taiwanese fried chicken special. Guys, it does not disappoint. The chicken pieces are pretty sizable, especially at $5/piece on Mondays. I split a platter (2 pieces of chicken, some salad/slaw, 2 deep fried mantou buns) with a friend and three of us split the pickle party (okra was the standout for me, also a big fan of the bamboo).

I got the mapo tofu (meat version) and it was extremely delicious. Spicy but without the mouth numbing feeling of Sichuan peppercorns. Even comes as a vegetarian version - in fact the whole menu is pretty vegetarian friendly. Boozy boba tea was a must, but as you can tell from the pictures it's hard to get great shots for Instagram so just enjoy the food and ambiance with your dining pals.

This restaurant is plagued by the same noise issue facing many Toronto restaurants, it’s hard to have an audible conversation with someone across from you. The use of a iPod to take orders also makes the whole experience super impersonal, as your server makes no attempt to remember your order, or what order is going to what seat. The food was good, but for a city with many great food options I will be taking my dining experience elsewhere.

The name fit the food, so-so overall. The staff were attentive, it's clearly a hip spot, but I won't be returning. My dinner guest said that she'll go back, but for takeout only, so she really enjoyed her food, despite an annoying snafu with the bill.

We really enjoyed the food. However, we found the service rather distracting. I called ahead to reserve a table for 6:30 pm. When we arrived, the Front-of-House greeter immediately told us we could only be there until 8:30 pm, since another reservation was booked at our table for 8:30 pm.

We found it odd because that was two hours away, but okay. The information was good to know. However, the entire time we were eating she was watching us and pressuring us to finish, even going as far to ask us on occasion if we were done while we were waiting for food. Keep in mind, the restaurant was not full, there was no one waiting for a table at the door, and there were a lot of tables around us that were empty. It was also no where near 8:30 pm.

Our waitress was nice, but didn't ask us if we wanted anything else when she brought the bill. Which again, was odd because I had been thinking of getting another drink. But when she brought the bill my companion and I had grown tired of feeling pressured by the wait staff to finish and leave, so we paid and went to a bar down the street.

All in all, the food and drinks were really good, but I probably won't go back because of the service.

I'd say the food was only ok. Nothing really blew me away, which I was really hoping for. We were also rushed out of the restaurant after only an hour or so of being seated because there was another reservation coming after us that was a bigger party that required our table. This has never ever happened to me anywhere else. I've never been rushed out anywhere. And so my friend and I rushed to finish our meals and then the next reservation came to the bigger table next to us and we were never even asked to leave. So we were essentially rushed for no reason when we had every intention of ordering more food and drinks. Not a great experience.

Decor is the main reason to go, the blue and pink lighting really sets an amazing view. Service was a bit slow but waitress made up by offering free shots. Food was tastier than I expected however I don’t often have traditional Chinese food. The dumplings both vegetarian and pork were to die for. I’d definitely go back & I recommend this place
