    Bargain boozey brunch!

    We went for the boozey brunch the Saturday before Christmas and the place was bouncing. That didn’t stop the servers from being friendly and attentive. We had Christmas crackers on the table which was a lovely touch. Some of our party were running late and they had no problem with that. Our meal was really tasty and our cocktails were amazing! Didn’t wait long for our food or drinks. Would recommend and will be back again!

    Best start to the festivities

    Staff were excellent. Friendly, attentive, able to get cocktails not on menu. Food was delicious and can't wait to come back. Only thing that lets the place down is the toilets.

Pan-Asian restaurant in the Merchant City

Situated on Albion Street, Bar Soba celebrates the street food artists of South East Asia’s bustling night markets. Inside you will find a manga and graffiti-splashed interior, with big windows and stylish fixtures adding to the vibe. The kitchen team are passionate about conjuring up classic street food dishes from scratch using the finest produce, creating some culinary remixes in the process. Expect Asian flavour bombs washed down with imaginative cocktails, while local and international DJs play diverse beats in the background.

Tongue-tingling street food and tasty cocktails

Bar Soba has one of the most imaginative Asian fusion menus in Glasgow and serves small plates alongside dishes straight hot from the wok. With a menu stretching from Singapore to Seoul, you can enjoy a whistle-stop tour of Eastern delights. Highlights include the teriyaki beef noodles, the crispy Shanghai Pork and the buttermilk fried chicken katsu curry. Veggies can tuck into the gyoza ramen, the vegetable pad thai and the basil chilli stir fry, among other options. Small plates include salt & pepper squid, Korean popcorn chicken and the intriguing cheeseburger spring rolls. If you have room for dessert then the deep fried Japanese doughnut might just tickle your fancy. Cocktails include the delightful sounding Bubblicious, Coconut & Chilli Daiquiri and Tiger Lily Colada.
