"Is the soup hot?" I asked my son.

No, it's not hot.

No, it's just right.

My son told me.

How to express the soup temperature is just right, not too hot and not too cold. It's warm.

    I think you just answered your own question: 'No, it's just right.'

  • If I say the complete sentence, "The soup is just right." . Would It sound natural to a native speaker.

    "The soup is just right." is perfectly natural.

Either one of those options would work fine, except I would say, “No, it’s not too hot” for the first one.


The soup is just right.
