Food is nice but certainly not worth the price! Service was ok but nothing special. We were seated at the bar which was uncomfortable, not interested in going again to be honest which is sad given the reviews and expectations I had.

Absolutely incredible, we had the four course taster menu and I ate foods that I would have never order & thoroughly enjoyed every single course! I will be back.

Group of 4 in a booth - intimate, with privacy and distance from other diners.
Great selection of shared plates allowed us to sample a good range of interesting and flavoursome dishes - 4 entrees and 2 mains to share was more than enough - alas no room for dessert!!
Staff were well informed and helpful about the food and size of servings, and unobtrusively attentive to our needs. Highly recommended.

I took my partner here for her birthday for a nice dinner. The staff were friendly and I can’t complain about their service. However I’m really disappointed in the amount of food brought out in the feed me option on the menu. It was $150 for the both of us to eat and the plates that came out were tiny, for the main it was a small bit of chicken that we had to half, the cheesecake dessert we also had to share and was barely a couple spoonfuls each. I saved up to take my partner here for food and drinks. I would not recommend this place to any of my family/friends as it’s not great value for money, we left hungry and had to make some extra food to eat when we got home.

Service was amazing and the food was incredible!! But I was hungry after sharing 6 dishes. The salmon tataki was mind blowingly good.

Food was amazing! Good for a group to share and try different things, really enjoyed the music and the setting. It’s busy and a little bit small but I liked the vibe of the place so it didn’t bother me, will definitely be going back.

Our first time at Shobosho and it was a special birthday for my partner. The five of us had a wonderful evening. I was facing the kitchen and was captivated by the energy and the food that was being created! We enjoyed everything we ordered, even a couple of dishes that took a couple of us outside our comfort zone. Absolutely delicious. Cannot wait to return!

Shobosho always serves great food with hands-on service. As it was a lunch time, it was quieter than during dinner last time (we prefer this as we could hold normal conversation). Every dish we ordered was excellently presented, we had few different alcoholic drinks - beer, sake and wine. The only downside was a short list of sake on offer, apart from that all was great.

Despite booking we had to wait half an hour for our table. Admittedly the hostess was good about it and offered us a sake while we waited.

Food was tasty although wouldn’t consider it value for money. Quite noisy. Likely won’t be back for a while.

Walking into Shobosho is a pleasure, you smell the delicious scent of a wood fire and can see the chef preparing the meals right there. Food was amazing, definitely will be back. Our waitress was wonderful.

Food lacked flavor. Might be what we ordered but the food looked better than what it tasted. The dumplings were delicious, and that's where it stopped. The crab udon and also garfish, though cooked well, lacked flavor.

The service and ambiance were great.
