“Good old rock 'n' roll”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

This is a rock 'n' roll place and one can't deny it. But it's not like u're forced to listen to heavy metal 24/7. It's more about old rock and especially during the daytime the music is not that loud. But the rock 'n' roll theme is all over the place. But in my opinion in a good way. It makes this place unique. We went there with two of my friends and the service was friendly (someone would maybe say too friendly but we were okay with it) and the food came in time. I ate a chicken sandwich and that was just delicious. It's good also that they have their menu in english (and online too!). At Sohwi you can spend hours with good company and with good food. The toilets are a bit hidden because you have to go to the downstairs and if you go there for the first time you just might miss those stairs.

“Food and drinks for small price”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

Sohwi is a great place to start your night in town. The food is average but the price is not too high either. If you want to play safe, you take "Sohwin pannu", that is potatoes, egg and sausage served in a pan. "Bilekana" in turn has chicken breast, sweet sauce, halloumi cheese and spinach-barley for sider. Cheese and sauce were great, chicken a bit dry and barley could have been tastier with more spinach. But well, you can't expect it to be perfect with those prices.

Sohwi has often live music so there is no hurry to leave after you've had a drink or two..
