Just visited Bar Soba in Glasgow. Kuran our waiter was so attentive and fun. We took his advice and ordered a selection of food and cocktails. Food was amazing! Cocktails delicious and service was excellent! I’d recommend it to anyone.

Our award-winning flagship bar & restaurant opened in 1999 and, whilst there have been a few changes to the Far Eastern-inspired decor, we've maintained our reputation for serving high quality Pan-Asian street food and exciting and inventive cocktails. We pride ourselves on our generous portions of mouth-watering, authentic Asian cuisine, served by our friendly and attentive staff, in a cool and intimate environment - only a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of Glasgow's city centre.
