Firstly, let’s get the sushi out of the way. It’s good. Really good. The sushi chef knows what he’s doing – that much is clear. However, it’s across the rest of the Asian fusion menu where the creativity begins to shine. The crispy salmon takes the often indistinct texture of ceviche and cleverly added a tempura-style crunch packed with flavor. Elsewhere, the Lobster Thermidor is pure indulgence and easily one of the best in the city. Other highlights include the seafood ceviche and the carpaccio-like Beef Tataki. The actual venue itself is a bit of a conundrum on paper, but works brilliantly well in reality – as its popularity attests. It is a big place located above Yasmina’s by Marina Mall and luxuriously decked out. There’s a long bar serving well-blended cocktails, a live band on Fridays and DJs at other times. People tend to come for a drink, wander over to the table for a long dinner and then return to the bar, or order another bottle of champers (it’s that kind of place) and stick around. It’s a goodtime place, but Soho should, first and foremost, be considered a restaurant. Late on, the music means the place can be really jumping. Roll up early, eat and leave late – and happy.
