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.
Really enjoyed our meal here... the food was lovely, relaxed atmosphere and staff were very friendly. Was disappointed we couldn’t leave a tip as we were paying by card and were advised it wouldn’t let us. Would definitely recommend and will be back.
Hi Suzanne, Thanks for leaving us a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your time spent with us. Will be looking forward to your return visit. Best, Max Taylor Manager
Food always delicious. It’s my new favourite place to eat!
.Hi Debra, Thanks for taking the time out your day to leave us such a lovely review! Best, Max Taylor Manager
We sampled the boozy lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the high standard of food received. Would definitely recommend to others 4 drinks and two courses for £25 in the centre of town with the standard of food available is worth sampling. Only down side was the limited number of veggie dishes. one of six on starters and two of eight on the mains.
Hi Craig, Thanks for the great feedback. We look forward to seeing you again. Best, Max Taylor Manager
We waited quite a long time to be served and had to go to the bar for drinks. We also had to ask for our sides to be corrected as we didn’t get what we asked for. We were also squeezed into a really small table. My husband is 6ft 4ins and we were sitting next to the fire. However we were very happy with our food and will return.

Hi Amanda, I'm pleased to hear that you had a good time here at Bar Soba. We are currently in the process of changing our drinks menu and for the time being it has shrunk. Sorry for the inconvenience. Best, Max Taylor Manager
Absolutely beautiful meal for a late valentines. Prices are really really reasonable and portion sizes were fantastic. Great flavour in the food and a lovely surrounding. Staff couldn’t be more helpful! Have already recommended to friends and family and will definitely return! Thanks so much!
Hi Emmie, Thanks for taking the time to leave us such a great review. Will be looking forward to your return visit. Best, Max Taylor Manager
Although having three front of house staff and not being busy the service was extremely poor. The bar person seemed as if ordering drinks was s hassle which was strange as it’s a bar?? I ceratailly won’t be back, it’s a shame as the Glasgow bars are great?

I don't drink so was really pleased with the Thai Lemonade - I'd quite like to see a few more Mocktails added to the menu as it's far better than being left with a simple soft drink. The decor of the restaurant downstairs could do with a bit of colour, I was disappointed to see it was quite plain and very different from the bar area which has a fantastic atmosphere. That was my only negative though, I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Edinburgh cause the staff are great and (I can't stress this enough) the food is delicious. I'd love to see the little plates on a 3 for £12 deal or something similar and then I wouldn't feel so bad ordering one of everything.
Hi Samantha, Thank you for your review! We are glad you had a good time with us. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Andy GM

A better wine selection would be great! The Sauvignon Blanc we had to send back as it was cheap and awful!
Hi Anne, Thank you for your recent review. We do have a vast array of different wines on offer here at soba, it is unfortunate that the one you chose wasn’t to your taste. We hope to see you again. Kindest regards, Andy GM

I really enjoyed the food. I didn’t give 5 stars because of the wait for service. I think they were short a member of staff.
Hi Samantha, Thank you for your review, We hope to see you again soon. Andy GM
The bar man was really friendly but the waiter was not, super grumpy and i felt like i was causing him an inconvenience by being there, he definitely didn't want to be there

What a lovely experience, relaxed place, lovely helpful staff couldn't do enough for us. And the food was quirky and tasted so good. Amazing value for money, we came on a Monday night and got 50% off all food.
Hi Nicola, Many thanks for your review, we hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Andy GM

Hi Valerie, Many thanks for your review. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Andy GM
Everything about this place is amazing! The food and not to forget the cocktails are TO DIE FOR. It’s also super student friendly which is appreciated so much as you can have a tasteful night out on a budget! Will definitely be back.
Hi Elouise, Thank you for a wonderful review! We hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Andy GM
The menu has shrunk drastically since I was there and a key few favourites which were offered in a gluten free menu is now gone. Where has the gluten free menu even gone? The food was average so I’m glad it was 50% off as I would have found the cost too much for what I got at full price. The waitress was pleasant enough and food was timely though. The wine however was horrendous and not at all like a Sauvignon, which I doubt it was!

Hi Andy, Many thanks for taking the time out to leave us a great review! thanks, Andy GM
Big fan of the sobas in Glasgow but this one wasn't as good. The service wasn't the best and also they mood of one of the staff members was shocking! I assume it was the manager but the way he was speaking to thr kitchen staff was terrible.
