We booked well in advance because we know how popular it is and therefore impossible to get in at short notice. They were turning people away at the door. We had the most wonderful dinner for two. The tempura onion rings, Spencer Gulf prawns, udon noodles with lobster and crab, and the most excellent potstickers were all small share plates. We also ordered the salmon which was a larger plate with a side of rice and salad, which was fabulous but defeated us. We could have done with one or two fewer small plates for two, but it's like choosing a favourite child to decide which one we would not have wanted. The food and service was outstanding. I would definitely go again.

It was a very very hot night, so it was a bit warm inside and some brave souls were sitting outside. It was a challenge for the a/c with heat, people, and the fire in the kitchen. The music is super cool and super loud. You could talk to each other across the table, but the music volume meant you had to talk so loudly you knew what your neighbours were discussing - which happened to be breast feeding (lol).

Mid week dinner at Sho sho
Great: Service - friendly and engaging.
Average: Back ground noise - not a great venue for the softly spoken.
Disappointing: Super sad to say but the food. The char siu pork was terrible, dauphinoise super dry, dessert reminded me of a defrosting sara lee, some dishes super salty and an intense amount of nori.

Fabulous. Our expectation was low. One of the few restaurants open on a Monday night in Adelaide. But what a delight! Brilliant food with fabulous service. We left totally overwhelmed by the relaxed, warm ambience and excellent food. The plumb wine was a winner!

Very well done, for the lunch menu.
ShoSho has a great selection and the food presentation very Japanese.
Wine and beer selection is somewhat limited.

Our family enjoyed our meal at ShoSho. We adored the Salmon dishes, just fabulous and the dumplings but didnt find the Tempura dishes that appealing. Filling yes, so good for big appetites. The staff attending us were excellent. Could explain everything and very keen to ensure all our wishes were attended to. I would like to thank them and come back soon.

The ‘potato scallop’ is a must! It’s a bit of a mystery by description but it’s a wonder of crunch, taste, seafood and quirkiness.
