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.
The Boozy Brunch deal was excellent value for money - the sharing platter is a great idea, love the chance to try lots of different things!
Fantastic meal and the service was excellent
Great as usual
Don't think the restaurant seating area makes for a very enjoyable dining experience. We were sat at the table furthest to the back and the tables were so crammed in that I had to squeeze in sideways to get to my seat and was so close to the table next to us that we had no privacy. I was sat next to a pile of baby highseats and was directly opposite the toilet door which was very off putting. Whilst I thought the food was great my partner came down with food poisoning a few hours after we got home.
First time in this branch and it won’t be my last. Excellent service from the two lovely blonde girls, didn’t catch names but both a pleasure. Food lovely too. Only gripe would be the lunch menu doesn’t have any non fizzy drinks which was fine for us but the restaurant owner may want to rethink that one. Thanks again. M x
Really enjoyed the boozy lunch deal - nice food, good drinks choice and service
Bloody freezing all 4 of us spent the evening chittering wearing jackets and scarfs never been so cold in a restaurant in my life. Asked the staff numerous time who had no clue? Paying a lot of money for small portions also and in that atmosphere was a disgrace. Defo won’t be back.
Hi Aileen, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry to hear that you found the restaurant too cold, please be assured that with the cold weather we are trying our best to keep the restaurant warm with various heaters and I can only apologize that on this occasion it did not meet your standards. I hope this does not deter you from visiting us in future. Kind Regards, General Manager
Excellent food and delicious cocktails. Service was fantastic. Definitely be back again. Thank you
Was great, cocktails were to a good standard for the price, good sized food portions
Used to be a regular customer although hadn't visited for a while, menu changed slightly but did not disappoint. Food was delicious will definitely be back soon.
I love bar soba. The quality of the food has always been great and remains so. My food and that of my partner was really good quality and great value. However you have reduced the dishes available that are gluten free at a time where most places are increasing these options. Please consider future menu changes carefully. Also this is now the third visit where both I and my partner have been cold in the byres road venue. Many customers were sitting in jackets and my phone told me that the temperature in the men’s toilets was just 11 degrees. Please turn the heating up!!!
All round excellent experience
Always wonderful service and food at Bar Soba. It’s one of our favourite places to go for food. The staff are so friendly and helpful, but not in your face. Would recommend, and do.
It was our friend Susan's 50th birthday and the two girls that looked after our table went above and beyond to make it a very special occasion. The food and cocktails were delicious and we had a wonderful afternoon. Thank you so much!
Very relaxed for a Saturday lunchtime, service when we needed it, left alone when we didn't. Table was supposed to be for 1hr 15mins but we weren't even pressured to order and didn't until 30 mins after booked time. We were there grazing and having a couple of drinks for well over 3 hours. Food came quickly and well presented. Had a few small dishes and some had mains which were excellent as were the Drinks.
The food was very different from another bar soba that we tried the week before. We came in january when there was 50% off food and so for the price it was good but wouldn't pay full price for the quality of the food we received and the fact that the bang bang chicken and the Pad Thai were very different in each restaurant.
always lovely great food and good for the kids too. thanks!
Cramped spaces with small portions
Lovely night in Bar Soba. We booked for the 50% off in Jauary - we ordered more than usual and tried dishes I hadent had before. The food was amazing and the service was really good, friendly staff and very quick! (Ideal as i had starved myself all day for it!) Would reccomend to anyone, the cocktails are out of this world too.
Waitress was quite rude and burger was very dry.
Came into use the 50% deal with my boyfriend and did wait a wee bit for our food but the manageress was very efficient and also offered us some complimentary prawn crackers. The service from all the staff was very friendly and we had a lovely meal. I just love those Singapore noodles!!
50% off January sale is very good value for money, they should do it more often! Friendly staff
Lovely afternoon!!! Opted for the lunch offer, and staff were very helpful in helping me with GF options for my partner. Will definitely be back in to try cocktails next time
Delicious food and very friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant was a bit cold but other than that had a great time.
