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.

Good place for a quick drink or a simple meal. Decent burgers and also some vegetarian options. Close to the university and popular with students and staff.

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.

The ambience was good. This place has many locals to come here for the beer and food. I love their mussels very much!! They also serve nice burger and escargot. I understand that this is run by a local family.

From the outside, this looks a little like a rock n roll dive, the sort of place where the food might be basic burgers and a microwave might be the chef's primary equipment. But, contrary to first impressions, Sohwi is frequented by a broad cross-section of locals (with whom it seems popular throughout the week) as well as visitors, the... More

This is a great place for a drink after work or to meet friends before the weekend starts. It is close to the university and always has a friendly crowd inside. The beer offerings are not hugely extensive but do change from time to time. We visit Sohwi frequently and always say how delicious their chicken wings are. I highly... More
