First Review by JohannaKarolina

never tasted anything quite like it! - Edit

The selection is small, but everything is delicious. If you are looking for a quick bite- this is the place. The cuisine is asian inspired. It goes surprisingly well with beer! ;) and the staff is really friendly and helpful.

weird service - Edit

The waitress seemed kinda off, and put out by us not ordering drinks...like it was odd not to order drinks at 2pm. Also, when we ordered two dishes she informed us most people order more... Ok great, but you didn't say it was a tapas bar. Apart from that, the rice and mushroom pudding was delicious as was the cashew and mushroom curry. The aubergine dish wasn't great, and very rich and almost had a concentrate paste flavour. Didn't finish our 3 dishes despite her saying two was not enough. Price was very reasonable.

Pros: all vegan

nice food mice staff - Edit

This pub and restaurany mostly have korean (and other parts of asia) inspired food. I’ve tried the szechuan pepper blackbean tofu and the jack fruit curry. They both taste great!
They also have a good range of beers and drinks. Live music downstaits sometimes and a very friendly atmosphere.

Pros: great food, friendly staff and nice atmosphere, not expensive

Cozy place with incredible food. - Edit

Very rich tastes. I had a black pepper aubergine dish and mushroom cashew curry. As the menu changes daily it will probably not available in future visits, but it definitely is not the last time I went there.
The staff was really friendly and helpful.
As I am not local I asked them for recommendations on vegan breakfast and they came up with ace options.

Pros: daily changing menu

Craving pan asian - Edit

I have said in previous reviews i would kill for a vegan asian restaurant in scotland and this is the closest so far. When i say asian i mean more easter than southern, and this fits the bill with a blend of japans, chinese and korean flavours.
A cool bar in the forever getting trendier great western road, the new west end for glasgow. i may even have been served by a member of remember remember! a nice vibe with a selection of craft beers, a menu changing daily of hand a dozen dishes or so. I was by myself and was made to feel really welcome, a quiet delight of melodies playing in the background. I plucked for the spicy aubergine with a mango side salad. the sale was fantastic, fresh with a zing which left my palate fresh and ready for the main. this also wasn't a let down, plenty of heat in the aubergine, but still enough flavour coming through to allow you enjoy the vegetable taste. I loved the wee pickles with the dish, which allowed me to freshen up the last buds. the rice was the only let down, a texture of reheat just a bit dry and tough.
back again recently and had a jackfruit curry and kimchi, once again it was mighty fine.

Another visit and another fantastic meal. My friend complained about the menu being small, I like it, do what you can do in the space you have, donor well.


Ramen action with kimchi on the side, marvelous.

Pros: great taste combinations, great staff, good value

great place - Edit

I could eat when here but the food looked great and you could get a dish with everything if you wanted for £15 I think. I tried the kimchi which was awesome

Good selection of drinks and there is a music area downstairs. Nice staff

Sunday Lunch! - Edit

* Really surprised about the last 2 reviews where people had gone in later on the same day after we had.
Website is pretty straightforward in explaining the pricing and the fact that when one day's dish is finished...it's finished.
Yes - pretty clear that.
It was also explained when we arrived what the price of the main and side dishes were.
Yes - totally clear.
Perhaps those folk that went in like Vegan places that have 12 choices of dishes that are frozen and can be chucked in a microwave on demand. Odd.
What's hard to understand about going in late and finding there's only 2 choices left?

Lunch was fine. I'd Jackfruit curry with rice and Miso soup. Good to find Williams Brothers beer also.

Pros: Fresh food., When a dish finishes, it's finished. New choic, Williams Bros. beer.

Cons: Chopstick challenge!

Rather disappointed - Edit

As visitors we had been impressed by the 'Vegan Scene' in Glasgow so far. We were intrigued by the idea of having a choice of five changing dishes on the menu. When we got there there were four options left two of which promptly disappeared. A limited choice to say the least. Both choices turned out to be rather spicy, not really desirable for one of us. Only two side dishes on the board without prices. They turned out to be rather more expensive than expected. All in all rather disappointing.

Pros: Friendly staff, good portions.

Cons: Not particularly good value for money. , Very limited choice.

Nice crew, too salty food - Edit

We came in the evening (7:30pm) and 2 out of 4 main dishes were gone. We ordered white pepper aubergine and black fungus and beancurd. Food was much too salty. Each main was £8. The staff were nice and accomodating, and there is a good selection of drinks.

Oh, so good! - Edit

We couldn't decide which dish to choose, they all sounded appealing, so we went for "eat everything" option (£15 per person, minimum for two people, try every dish, unlimited rice plus dessert). The food was plentiful and amazing,nice people coconut soup and sweet soy tempeh dish and green salad were our favourite, yum. What you won't eat you can take home, which I did. Dessert was delicious too, very light and healthy, yet yummy. I could hardly move after all this food orgy, but it was worth it. Last but not least staff is great, they're really nice people, we felt looked after but they weren't fake or intrusive.

Pros: Amazing food, Great value for money , Friendly atmosphere

Cons: None for me

Amazing Eastern Asian cuisine - Edit

They've added a deal where you can sample everything off the menu - including unlimited rice - for £15. Or, before 5pm you can have any £8 main for £5. I opted for the former, being excited there was scheuzan tofu on the menu, and no mushroom dishes (I detest mushrooms). However, before my dishes arrived the tofu had sold out, and two of the dishes we received were mushroom based. That was disappointing. Though with one dish I was able eat around them and enjoy the savoury "pudding" they accompanied.

It was my second time sampling their jackfruit curry, which is a dish I've never seen elsewhere and I would highly recommend it. I was also excited that to finish off was a dessert of coconut & mango puree; it's no Oreo cheesecake but was the sweetness I needed to feel satisfied. They also have a good range of craft beers, too, and service was fantastic (apart from the tofu incident).

Sitting on stools all afternoon wasn't great, next time I'd request a table at the back with the chairs.

Pros: Unique dishes , Reasonably priced, Relaxed environment

Cons: Not knowing the menu til the day

Okay food, really nice people - Edit

Went here for lunch and got some curried plantains with rice. The food was okay. In another city I would give this place a higher review, but with all the great options in Glasgow this place wasn't the best.

The people were really friendly though. They opened at 12:00 and we arrived at 11:30. They let us inside to use the wifi and hang out until their kitchen opened.

Pros: Great staff, Decent prices, Cool vibe

Cons: Quality wasn't the best

Delicious Asian food in a lovely setting. The menu was unique and made a nice change from pub grub. Friendly service, unpretentious vibe and they have some great bands playing here. Would recommend!

Pros: yummy, something different

Nice wee place - Edit

Came here on the off chance there might be some space for us, a member of staff was able to find us a table even though it was very busy. There was a gig about to start and many people were waiting for that. Food was very nice and reasonable priced. We'll be back again when it's quieter.

Pros: Good value, Friendly, helpful staff

Lovely! - Edit

went here for dinner on a Sunday, it was super chilled and the staff were very lovely. Most importantly however, the food was really really nice, felt fresh and simple but very tasty! Would recommend to anyone, especially as it is so hard to find thai-style asian food that you can trust is vegan!

Pros: tasty!, good value for money!, friendly, relaxed
