About Bar Soba Byres Road

In January 2012 we took Bar Soba west to Byres Road. With its street art interiors and proximity to Glasgow University it has fast become popular with student diners. This is, in no short measure we’re sure, due to our unbeatable 2 for 1 on mains deals for students, available all day from Monday to Thursday and until 5pm on Friday.

Cuisine: Pan Asian, Thai, Cocktails

Staff are courteous, food is terrific and a great choice on the menu, the only thing I would point out if you sit at the window it is a bit chilly, overall I would recommend dining here.

We took advantage of the Meerkat Meals offer so the value was superb at £18 for 2 starters, 2 mains and drinks. When quiet, the staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant filled up very quickly, and the service began to suffer when the tables were filled. Recommend you go early to get the best service.

Nice food, awful service. Waiting staff didnt seem to know what they were doing. Forgot to start with a drink order, almost wouldn't give us the pre theatre menu then took ten minutes to give it to us. Table was booked for 6.30 and we didnt receive our mains until after 7.30 because "everyone just came in at the one time". This is not good enough and we were late for the Glasglow event at 8pm despite having booked for a time far in advance. Also seating us next to the door when there were unreserved free tables in warmer areas of the restaurant when the temperature outside was freezing cold was not good customer service, especially since we'd prebookedour table. Despite enjoying the food very much, we will not be returning and not be recommending to anyone else.

The food portions for the price was not value for money, and the quality of food was sub standard. The service was fine, and the cocktail was ok. Just really disappointed in the food. The soft shell crab was ridiculously tiny for the price, it was two mouthfuls if that. I've been to many other restaurants where you get a larger portion for a lower price and much better quality. The gyozas were burst but they still served us them, just not great. We left really deflated, doubt I will be back.

My friend and I visited your restaurant for a gin cocktail masterclass. The cocktails were lovely, food was great as always and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The class was fantastic and we thought it was amazing value for money. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would definitely recommend to anybody.
