Good pub food slightly rocker twist. Food is tasty and good value of price. Service is good but sometimes little slow but it is usually due to the fact that the restaurant is almost always full.

This place is pretty famous among the students. You can have a beer, talk and even play board games there. The food is good if you are looking for a pub and restaurant combination. I tried liver in wine liquorice sauce, it sounded a bit extreme but it was actually really good.

This restaurant is popular amongst students but also mid aged people like to visit here. Atmosphere is relaxed casual. Place need perhaps some renovation but works still well. I had green salad as starter and Sohwi-steak as maincourse. Salad was very good. Sirloin Steak with sweet potato and nice dressing was tasty. Unluckily they do not have tenderloin steaks on... More

We had dinner with family and all the portions were excellent! Fish of the day was super good! From the street Sohwi looks more like a pub or bar, but anyhow food is worth visiting 😊 I can recommend chicken bearnaise and limeposet

The food has always been good. The prices are not too high and this is a good place for sitting down with friends.

A nice and relaxed athmosphere and the food price-quality ratio is good. There are also some student discount from certain dishes and drinks!! The service is usually also quick, polite and professional. Check out also the possible special entertainment nights (usually on Fridays!)

I have been here for a dinner with my business friends. Took a fish of the day, I do not remeber what it was, but it was really good. Good size of portions, very good quality of food, perfect service. I really enjoyed the time spent there.

This is a pub which offers good food for many different tastes and to reasonable prices. Perfect for a family or a big group of friends. Choices include stakes, burgers, pastas, fish dishes, snack food and great home style desserts. Not a fancy place not a gourmet restaurant but honest pub food that leaves you happy :-)

Pub food, pub drinks, pub atmosphere and pub people. It's all good, not too fancy and not too expensive. Food certainly fills you up (not for dieters) and gives interesting choices (also for vegs). Terrace is nice even though surrounded by roads. Recommendations: round part of the menu, finnish microbrewery drink or beer.

Thank Teptee
