Already a staple of Glasgow’s dining scene, with locations in the City Centre and the West End, Bar Soba has opened its first restaurant in the nation’s capital.

Bar Soba’s Edinburgh branch landed in Hanover Street at the end of last year.

5pm Deal

Naturally one of their first priorities was promoting their services on 5pm , offering a two course set menu and a glass of wine for £13.95.


Bar Soba has established its reputation in Glasgow by offering pan-Asian street food from a variety of countries, including Japan, Vietnam and Malaysia.

Its menu is nothing short of adventurous; its unconventional take on burgers, south east Asian curries and California Rolls, as well as favourites such as Pad Thai, Nasi Goreng and Singapore noodles, have kept the diners flocking in.


They also have a mammoth cocktail list which includes variations of classics such as mojitos, daiquiris and martinis, with a few unique offerings added for good measure.

A huge emphasis is placed on cocktails, with the waiting staff ready to suggest the right drink to complement each meal. The restaurants even offer cocktail masterclasses, led by their skilled mixologists.

Along with its Glasgow counterparts (Mitchell Lane and Byres Road), Bar Soba’s Edinburgh residence promotes itself as a pre club venue, with different DJs spinning tunes Wed – Sat from 9pm onwards.

Only time will tell if it will be as successful as its hugely popular Glasgow sister restaurants.
