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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!!
