Tonight I was here to attend an event, but I arrived a little early and was very hungry so I thought let’s have a little snack.

This was my first time in this Cafe, and looking around it had a nice look and tonight it had a nice atmosphere.

The Food…

Haggis Bonbons £6.50
With Johnnie Walker Gold label Whiskey Sour Dressing

This was just a little snack as I didn’t want to fill myself up too much, plus I had a very big lunch.

On arrival, this looked nice and also smelled nice and a perfect size for a starter or snack.

This was very nice, the coating was just crispy and no more and the flavours were really good. I could have easily had more, but it was just a snack.

Overall

Overall from my short experience before the event, it was nice and relaxing and the food I had tonight was nice.

Here is a place I would visit again, but this part of the West End I don’t tend to visit too much but if I do I will stop in again and check out the food and drinks.

The past few times I have been in Bar Soba, it was for cocktails and not for food.

It was time to take a visit, and try some food as its always looked good when ive been in.

On arrival it was a very very busy day, so inside and outside was mega busy. We were seated at the back, to the side.

This was not a great position to sit anyone, it was near stairs and the sections toilet so people and waiters were constantly passing behind me….plus the lighting a little dull.

The Food…

Starter

Cheeseburger Spring Rolls £5.00
Soba burger mayo

The description sounded interesting, and also on arrival it looked interesting.

This was nice, wasnt amazing but it was nice. It had a slight kick to it, and the sauce was very nice.

I would order this again.

Main Course

Bangkok Burger £10.00
Chargrilled beef patty flavoured with Thai spices, with sliced chedder, and Soba mayo.

This also had a little kick to it, and the burger was perfecly cooked.

The flavours were nice, it wasnt the best burger in Glasgow but it was a good one.

Overall

Overall it was ok value for money, but where I was seated really killed the mood tonight for me.

Will I go back? maybe but I would probably try sit in a different location and see if that helps.

So after my first visit not being great, I decided to give them a second chance and try a pizza here….surely they can’t go wrong with pizza?

The Food…

Main

Tuna (Tonno) Pizza 25 Lei

On arrival it looked good, but that’s sadly where the good part stopped.

There was no flavour, and the base wasn’t good.

I guess this place is not a place that is good with food, but more a place for drinks.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 1.5

Overall

Another disappointing visit, I won’t be back.

If you want smoothies and drinks, definitely check here out but the food…maybe bypass this place and go elsewhere.

Sorry guys
