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

The food was quite average and the dining room at Byres Rd location was like an annexe, quite featureless. Not as good as Merchant City or Mitchell Lane

Food fantastic,service ok,friendliness of servers:/staff varies from excellent to absolutely ignorant rude snobbery,Advise you to wear warm clothes,always freezing in bar area if you’re eating in there this time of year ..Sounds negative but food makes up for varied service .

Our seat was next to a toilet with a fire door next to us which left us absolutely freezing. I have never had to eat a meal with my coat and scarf on. I ordered a katsu curry. The rice was undercooked and the chicken was over cooked. A bit of a disaster from bar soba if I am honest. I won’t be in any rush to return.

My friend and I went for dinner last night at 5 o’clock. We had booked online and assumed we would get the 50% discount off food. When I booked online, there was no option to redeem a ‘code’ which we apparently needed for the 50% off. Our drinks took 15 minutes to come, despite the restaurant being empty. The waitress also got our food order wrong and then when we asked for the bill, we had to walk up to the bar to pay for it as no one came back for us to pay at our table. Considering we had to wait another 15 minutes for our food after sending the wrong dish back, you’d think they would have atleast given us a 10% discount. Awful service which is such ashame because I am normally so pleased with any Bar Soba I visit!

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.
