An ever-buzzing Korean diner with classic dishes and top-notch cocktails.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

If jam-packed tables are a barometer of quality, Bibimbap is doing a great job at presenting Korean food to Glasgow. Its kaleidoscopic umbrella-studded ceiling and compact tables lining a narrow corridor echo a street food theme commonly found in many Asian restaurants. The décor definitely gives it character, but it’s the cooking that makes it truly stand out. The flagship bibimbap, a bowl of warm rice, sauces and veg – while definitely praiseworthy – is merely one of a stellar cast of dishes on offer. Dispensing the traditional starter/mains concept, food is served as soon as its cooked, and the sparse intermezzos between dishes pass quickly while sipping on a cocktail with Korean soju. The fluffy jeons – savoury fried pancakes made with seafood, kimchi or potato – are a good appetite-opener. The opulent bibimbap and deobaps are filling enough to stand in for a whole meal. If you’re up for more smaller and diverse portions, a wok-fried dish such as the tender bulgogi or sauce-laden cheese deobaps, with one of the rice rolls will do the trick.
