This new branch is popular for lunch, after work drinks and, of course, weekend parties and pre-club drinks.
From Bangkok to BBQ pork
The Bar Soba chefs produce a tempting variety of dishes which have their roots in Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam and Malaysia. There are sharing/starter plates of Thai fishcakes, Vietnamese chicken wings and steamed prawn dumplings.
The selection of main courses includes a range of curries and wok-fried dishes such as chilli pork ramen. There is a also a choice of dishes cooked on the robata charcoal grill.
