My friends and I attended here on Saturday and I can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The service, especially from Samantha, was superb. We didn't want for anything and we were never kept waiting. Staff are very accommodating which made the night all the more fun. Will definitely be back!

My friends and I visited Soba last Saturday, as we very often do when we venture up to the West End. On this occasion a nice female, Sam, looked after us. Despite there being a large group of us, consisting of mainly 30 year old men who couldn't make their minds up with what fancy cocktail they wanted, Sam couldn't... More

A diamond on our dog walk! Pleasantly surprised dogs were allowed in this trendy bar for lunch. Experienced a warm & friendly welcome from staff & a bowl of water for Texas our dog. Good atmosphere, and the food was brilliant. Prawns were enormous and all food was great quality and good sized portions. Loved the chilled background music and... More

I was out with a friend last night (Friday). Wasn't feeling great and hadn't eaten properly all day. Saw the menu, popped in and asked if they were still serving food as it was 8pm. "Yes", the bartender replied. So me and my friend bought a drink and sat down. There were no food menus on any of the tables... More

I just went to bar soba with my friends for a meal and was extremely disappointed when I tasted my Thai green chicken curry and it was very different from when I last had it (ONLY LAST WEEK!!) there was no information on the menu to say it was different so I was obviously confused. I said to the waitress... More

This is not fine dining. There are minor problems with execution. But - man alive these dishes are yummy. The confused pan-Asian theme actually works very well! Prawn dumplings were a particular delight. Fried with peanut sauce - delicious. Prawn tempura came with an amazing garnish that was sour and spicy. Cocktails were banging. All in all, nice atmosphere, decent... More

Great atmosphere in the bar, the DJ's were playing great tunes to get us in the New Year party mood. Lauren the Manager really looked after us. Very friendly staff all round, great vibe. Only came for drinks but ended up ordering some snacks which were excellent - will definitely be back to try some more of the menu.
