Sugar Dumplin (Glasgow) : Review

Review Date : 29 July 2016 (but been many many times)

It’s about time I can hear some of you saying, as I have been going to Sugar Dumplin many many many many times.

Sugar Dumplin opened last year in Glasgow Princes Square, and located on the top floor where Mings the Chinese restaurant used to be. To be honest it wasn’t a shock that Mings closed, as more recently to the end the quality of the food was really bad.

I had seen on Twitter that a new restaurant was opening in Glasgow, but didnt know where and then I saw more promotions for Sugar Dumplin.

I tried to get in on the opening day, but we were turned away as it was an invite only event. That didn’t stop me, and went back and managed to get in.

Since last year till now there has been a change in a lot of staff members, not for any bad reasons all just wanted a change, moved away etc. The staff at the Glasgow Sugar Dumplin are all really nice and friendly, even the kitchen staff and manager. You can go in and relax and know that you will have good service, and if you need anything you can just ask.


As I have said I have been going a lot for either meals or cocktails or both, and due to that all staff know me by first name and have a chat with me which is really nice as it adds to all over feel and charm of the place.

Food wise Sugar Dumplin is different to what you can currently get in Glasgow, and its also full of flavour due to all the spices used. Check out the website to see the menu online, and take a read at the descriptions.

Cocktails in Sugar Dumplin for me are the best in Glasgow, the cost and also the measures they use are perfect. My friend Chris has tried nearly every cocktail on the menu, where as I have stuck with a few that really grabbed me and loved. Here are my four favourites in Sugar Dumplin and recommend you give them a try if you come here.

  • Short Skirt
  • Pornstar Martini
  • Amaretto Sour
  • Espresso Martini

More recently Sugar Dumplin have started doing a Rum Club once every month, I have attended three and at each event there has been a different representative from different rum companies and its been fun and educational plus Sugar have been nice enough to put on some free food.


Please do check them out, if your unsure keep checking your local deal websites as they sometimes put up deals and that would be a perfect way for you to try them out.
