Soy Street (Chinese: 豉油街; pinyin: Chǐyóu Jiē; Cantonese Yale: si6 yau4 gaai1) is a street in Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It starts from Tak Cheong Street in the west, crosses several major streets including Nathan Road, and ends in Waterloo Road.
The section between Nathan Road and Sai Yeung Choi Street South is for pedestrians only. The section between Nathan Road and Fa Yuen Street becomes crowded with people during the holiday season and at night.
The name Soy Street comes from a soya bean factory located in the area long ago. In June 2004, pottery from the Eastern Han Dynasty (25–220 AD) and Jin Dynasty (265–420 AD) were discovered at a construction site at the junction of Soy Street and Tung Choi Street.
