    Consistently fantastic

    Anytime we’re in Glasgow we always make a point of visiting a Bar Soba, and this was our first visit to the Merchant City restaurant. The ambience and atmosphere is amazing as you sit looking into the inside of the Merchant Square,which is a really lovely place anyway. The food as always was top quality, so flavoursome and authentic Asian cuisine. Maybe the best part was the service and humour of the staff and in particular the manager Brian. The Glasgow ‘patter’ is alive and well lol Cheers guys and see you all again soon!
