Restaurant Review
So Good - Ottawa         

Owner of popular Chinatown restaurant So Good says so long


"Consistent, tasty, delicious, fresh crisp veggies, excellent selection of dishes, friendly helpful staff, and never have been disappointed", are just some of the words and key phrases that come to mind when describing what I think is the best Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten at in my nearly 65 years. 

So Good located in Ottawa's Chinatown at 717  Somerset Street  is not one of those huge big city Chinese restaurants with white tablecloths that are decorated with gold and red dragons and who serve dim sum.  






It is just a little restaurant started by Peter and Kitty So in 1993 which had drawn the attention of many of the civil servants and hi tech crowd who want honestly delicious great Asian Cuisine. 


At So Good, you can get Cantonese, Vietnamese, Shanghai,  Szechuan, Taiwan, and Indonesian style dishes. Their takeout menu lists 301 dishes. Anything from Congee to an exotic fish dish like Indonesian Spicy Shrimp.  And if you have something in mind, Peter will fix you up with just about anything that is cookable found in Chinatown.  The Asian grocery stores with the live fish and fresh vegetables are nearby and across the street which make great resources for the So's.  Besides the ease of ready availability of lots of ingredients,  the So's certainly know how to use them to cook great food for their customers.  Check Out - How to Order Chinese Food.


I have eaten in this restaurant now for 8 years and have never been disappointed with the quality nor the quantity of the food served.  There is always for my taste enough and properly spiced for me.  And if you want it a little more hot or milder; Peter is most accommodating.  If you have a food allergy, tell Peter and you can be assured that you don't get anything cooked into your food that will make you ill. 


If after you looked at their menu and you still don't know what you want to order ~ Just call Peter or his wife over and they will help you through the hoops of ordering. 



So Good is not a big restaurant and has limited seating. If you plan to come, do make a reservation or you might end up waiting for up to an hour for a seat. 


And don't eat before you come. 


Eating at So Good --- is just So Great!
