Best Chinese and Far Eastern Restaurants in Glasgow
Glasgow’s top Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian and Vietnamese restaurants
Glasgow’s Chinese community is long established in the city and this is reflected in a range of restaurants whose quality surprises visitors and delights locals in equal measure. Whether classic Cantonese or spicy Szechuan, China’s traditional cuisine is all here. Expect colour, complexity and wonderfully harmonious flavour. Meanwhile, Glasgow’s Far East restaurants offer some of the most vibrant tastes in town. They’re also a haven for the growing band of diners who have specific dietary requirements. Barley-based Japanese beer, sake in all its forms, rice noodles, tofu every which way, fermented kimchi and brilliantly crisp and tasty vegetables all star, alongside spices and herbs such as ginger, turmeric and lemongrass.
