Have heard only good reports from friends, so had to try myself. Glad I did - everyone was right...just excellent from arrival to exit. Food, ambience, service - all faultless. Definitely going back.

Food great, service great, tables close together so the noise is a bit up there. The wine is on the pricey side but overall I would highly recommend it and we will definitely be going back.

We loved our meal at Shosho! The food was incredible, as were the drinks. The service was exceptional (especially our main waitress Alisha). Couldn’t recommend more!

The meal experience at ShoSho was wonderful. We have been to the sister restaurant Shobosho a few times so our expectations were high. ShoSho did not disappoint. Nice touch with the sparkler on our shared dessert to mark my husband’s Birthday. Highly recommend 😊

The most incredible little neighbourhood izakaya. Can not get enough of the attention to detail, consistently impressive levels of service and a menu to salivate over. A 10 out of 5.

I recommend people to share and try different items on the menu, they all have their own unique taste and identity. Definitely not a boring food experience, I'll go back

Great experience. Even had sparklers for the birthday boy as we booked for a birthday celebration so that was a nice touch.

Everything looked very well presented on the plate and was good for sharing.

We loved the food very much but the noise level was too high, making conversation difficult. The choice of music reflect the age of the Staff and not the clientele which I thought was insensitive.

We did the tasting menu and wow. Amazing spread of food, just the right portions and the flavours were incredible. Shosho's take on tempura is exceptional - light and airy batter that leaves you wanting more. Our favourite dish was the green bean tempura with cured egg yolk - been thinking about it for days. Hospitality staff were beautiful and warm. Minor complaint was the noise level - music could've been a bit softer. Could not have asked for a better birthday treat though!

Food and service was of the highest quality. A little pricey however, the different tastes supplied made up for this. The same is to be said about the Wines. Definitely over priced bur quite a good wine list. Having said all of that I will be recommending this restaurant to all of my friends and will definitely be returning.

Sho Sho never disappoints! We always enjoy the food here. If you order the larger 'feed me' menu, you had better go with an empty belly, as you will be very full when you leave.
Sho Sho is one of my 'go to' restaurants... always good.

I loved eating at ShoSho. We had the chefs menu and it was so good. We got a good selection of the menu, and I was extremely happy with everything. Our waitress was lovely as well and helped us pick drinks to suit our meal and she knew a lot about the menu. I will definitely be eating there again and will recommend it to others :)
