Bar Soba

Supplying the city with a mixture of Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Malaysian cuisine, Bar Soba on Hanover Street might be a chain, but it serves some brilliant Pan Asian street food.

Tang’s

Just a stone’s throw away from Greyfriars Bobby you’ll find Tang’s, a Japanese restaurant offering the very best in traditional cuisine. Their menu of sushi dishes, ramen noodles and curries will leave you spoilt for choice.

Tang’s is ideal for an adventurous eater open to trying Japanese food for the first time, but if sushi isn’t your thing try the yakisoba or spicy yaki udon - wok fried noodles accompanied by your choice of prawn, chicken or tofu.
