“good value for money”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

I have been to Sushi-so last Friday (5 April 2013) and it must have changed from what people have commented few years ago. The sushi was decent. I love salmon and it was fresh, tasty and good quality. The rice was cooked very well and overall I found the sushi was very decent. My friend had a veggie bento box and said it was one of the best veggie sushis he ever had. It was a bit sad to see that the restaurant was empty the whole time that we were there. I felt very sorry for the chef because his sushi does not deserve this. The waiter/chef was very friendly to us. I will defo go back. I think Euston is a bit of an odd place on a Friday night so I am hoping it is busier throughout the day.

“Sushi So- bad”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

I waited half an hour or more for salmon noodle soup - I thought the chef had gone to catch the fish! Meanwhile I got colder and colder in the restaurant which was freezing - a real draft from the door and no heating as far as I could tell. Whilst I waited I had two plates from the conveyor belt. One salmon uri-maki which was not at all fresh. I tried one and left one as I thought the salmon was on the turning point. Then I opted for a veggie/avocado maki to play safe -- the avocado was hard and bitter When the noodle soup eventually came (and by this point I had to put my coat and scarf on to eat!) it was not worth the wait. The salmon was over done, there was hardly any broth and the serving was small. Neither was the bill cheap. I was glad to get out of the place to warm up so settled the bill and left promptly certainly never to return again. Sushi-so have advertising boards outside which make it seem a appealing but for a Japanese food lover, this is one to steer clear of. Sorry but it had to be said.

“Waste of time and money”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

I decided to try Sushi-so for lunch takeaway as it is close to my work. I spent there over 20 minutes waiting for my order, had to ask where it was, and the lady at the cashpoint assured me it is going to come in 1 minute. In the meantime I got an invoice for £12.10 for a set of 8 pcs sashimi (tuna-salmon mix) and 1 tuna temaki. I gave the lady £22.20 and expected to get 10 pounds change. She gave me 5 pounds and bunch of coins - on my confusion she claimed I gave her 21.10. Anyways, I decided not to waste another minute there and left. When I got back to my desk I unpacked the takeaway to eat and saw that it wasnt even what I have ordered! They gave me tuna sashimi (6 pieces instead of 8 + 2 cucumber maki which I guess were the subsitute for 2 pcs of sashimi i didnt get) and salmon temaki. Tuna sashimi were half frosen and tasteless, cucumber maki tiny and the temaki were not even wrapped properly.

Bottom line: terrible service, cheating you on your money and bad food.

“Not SO YO”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Another Yo Sushi type fast food joint. Not my cup of tea. Fast food Sushi is fine for a quick snack but if you want a real Sushi hand made by a Japane Sushi chef - don't go to Sushi-So
