About Bar Soba Merchant City
Fabulous meal and service
Love Bar Soba. The service and food are brilliant and value is second to none. Friendly welcome, lovely servers and an overall great experience. Can’t wait to return!
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!

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. These include lemongrass chicken, Singapore chilli tiger prawns and the ever popular Dirty Bangkok Burger – a 6oz beef burger infused with chilli, lemongrass, coriander and garlic, all served in a brioche bun with cheese, chilli mayo, apple slaw and chilli fries.
