About Bar Soba Edinburgh
Launched in 1999 on Mitchell Lane in Glasgow, Bar Soba fast became a staple of the city’s burgeoning bar and restaurant scene. Serving quality Pan-Asian Street food with dishes from across the Orient, Soba has endeavoured to provide its diners with an unforgettable culinary experience.
We also lead the way with the original and best cocktail masterclasses as our highly-skilled mixologists take our guests through the tricks and tools of the trade: free pouring, flair moves & pours, astounding spirits savvy and other secrets of the mixology profession.
We took our patented mix of exhilarating cocktails and mouthwatering cuisine to the West End of Glasgow in January 2012, opening on Byres Road, before growing the Soba brand further and landing on Hanover Street in Edinburgh in December 2012.
Was really good food was tasty and beer was good
The service was a bit slow. It took a long time to get a server's attention. The apple and ginger mojito did not have any alcohol in it nor did it tastes of apple or ginger.
Andy the chef was amazing, he gave advice on food and drinks choices and a personal service.
Excellent lunch, we all tried the new £7.00 main meal & drink offer and the food was excellent, especially the Katsu curry
Good food and service! Will definitely be back x
Really tasty food- delicious flavours and great value served by very friendly staff.
Great lunch location
Having booked a table they did not have my reservation written down but luckily had a table anyway. The lady serving us was patient and friendly. Cocktails were very sweet but we probably just didn't read the menu right. Food was yummy but quite spicy so probably worth having that written on the menu.
Great atmosphere, and amazing service from the date i booked the table - booked a table of 16 girls on a hen do, they helped me out by decorating the table for me in advance too! Great team! Thank you again!
Pablo was our mixologist and he was fun, friendly and made our night memorable!!! Excellent cocktail masterclass would definitely recommend to others..well done guys.. XX
Boozy brunch great deal, excellent food and friendly, speedy service. Definitely return. Thank you bar soba.
The food in this place is amazing! Service was very quick considering that it was almost full. Very happy with Bar Soba and would highly recommend to anyone.
First visit and will return. Booked a table with high chair and room for buggy required and were given a nice table out the way with plenty room. The server was very friendly and informative about the menu. Food was brilliant and I look forward to trying more of it on my return! Lunch menu very good value as long as what you fancy is on it!
Great day at bar soba after our hen weekend to London had to be cancelled do to snow. Staff were all very attentive especially Andy. Have recommended to others already, and will be back.
Many thanks for accommodating our group in mocktail making sessions. Students had a great time and service was excellent.
Food was amazing! We have a main and dessert each and they were so, so delicious. The server was a lovely girl (unsure of her name) and overall I thought the price was very reasonable for what we had. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning
Head chef Andy made us feel very welcome. Thank you very much!
Definitely value for money and we will be back.
Great food and will definitely be back
The food was fantastic. We did boozy brunch and the cocktails were great.
Great boozy brunch
I booked for my husband's birthday, initially for a party of 5. When I called during the day to change this to a booking for 2, this was no problem , however, the person on the phone (although very polite) didn't even ask for my name (I had to offer this before he hung up). I also mentioned it was a birthday celebration and asked if there could be some sort of fuss made eg. candle / sparkler in a cake or even in the main course (and that I was happy to pay for this). Again, I was told this was no problem and that they would sort something out. We arrived 15 mins early and were seated straight away. They asked for our name, however I didn't see anyone check us off (which made me think they just thought we were walk-ins). Randomly, we were also shown to our seats by the chef. We were put in the middle of a booth section. Perfectly fine, but again, for a birthday celebration for 2 I expected something a bit more private. It was busy, so I thought fair enough. The food was excellent, as it always has been when I've been in before. The service was quite slow - although the staff were friendly & polite, we had finished our starter and cocktails, before our glasses of water were brought out (we asked for these first). The atmosphere was bustling, but a bit too loud for what I really wanted to be honest but this isn't a fault of the restaurant. Nothing was mentioned or done about my husband's birthday, as I had suspected it might not be. I didn't mention this, as by the time we finished, we were sitting packed in between 2 other parties and just wanted to leave to get some privacy. On the whole, it's a nice place with good food, but if you want a quiet meal for 2 (that isn't a first date) then I wouldn't recommend for that type of occasion. I have only ever been in a group before, and really enjoyed it, but I think the group tables tend to be seated slightly more out of the way. As a start to a Saturday night out if you're in your twenties, it's ideal, but thirty-somethings who like to talk and hear each other might want to choose somewhere else! I guess I just expected something different, and this is why I was disappointed. Not necessarily their fault though.
Service was excellent. Loved the staff.
Really enjoyed my Boozy Brunch and felt that it was exceptional value for money. Good buzz in the restaurant as well so it’s clearly a popular offer and getting people in really adds to the atmosphere. I’ve already recommended to several people so long may it continue!!
