We say…

You don't necessarily need to board a plane to Tokyo or Saigon to try authentic Pan-Asian street food; Bar Soba on Merrion street, Leeds, aim to deliver on the same exciting flavours you'd expect to find abroad. Perfect for lunch time, pre theatre and evening dining, as well as a great pre-night out bar destination afterwards, Soba is a must-visit location for Leeds locals and visitors to the city alike. As if straight from the markets and onto your plate, Soba is a unique and unforgettable dining experience in the heart of Leeds city centre. 

An edgy urban hub, Soba blends minimalism with creative design features in terms of its interior: with leather seats, low-hanging lightbulbs, neon signs and grungy art work, there's something that will capture your attention in every corner. The dining area itself boasts a gorgeous glass roof, keeping it bright and vibrant during the day before the perfectly soft lighting comes on in the evening. 

In terms of food, set lunch and pre-theatre menus are the perfect options for diners looking for a speedy but delicious dining choice. If you're making a meal of it however, then the a la carte is full of tasty Pan-Asian treats to enjoy at a relaxed pace. For starters, the Thai fishcake wontons containing a traditional blend of seafood, green beans and spices, in wonton pastry with a lime leaf and chilli dip is a favourite, alongside the Vietnamese sticky chicken wings with ginger, soy and a sweet chilli glaze. For mains, the teriyaki beef noodles with beansprouts and fresh herbs plus the Padang snapper and mussel curry are tasty favourites. There's also a small but delicious range of options for vegetarians: start with the broccoli and aubergine tempura with smoked red pepper chilli jam, and the vegetable gyoza ramen with a boiled egg, vegetables, chilli and crispy shallots for a great main option. Don't miss out on the incredible desserts: the Thai grasshopper cocktail dessert, featuring a creme de menthe, coconut and pandan cocktail over vanilla ice cream, topped with Oreo cookies is a unique treat. The cocktail menu itself is also impressive: with traditional Thai skull buckets, huge Soba shakers and classics infused with Asian notes, the venue is a cocktail-lover's dream. 

Perfect for groups of friends, couples or celebrations, Bar Soba is a lively venue that delivers on tasty authentic food and inventive cocktails. With its modern, exciting setting which transforms from restaurant to bar after food has finished being served, Bar Soba is the perfect setting to dine in before enjoying the night time atmosphere.
