    Food good for the price but service incredibly rushed. Our table was booked for 1pm but they made a big thing about telling us they closed at 2pm. Not very relaxing. Very pressured.

    We ate at the restaurant ahead of going to an event. The restaurant was very quiet, in fact at one point we were the only diners and as such the service was good, perhaps overly too much. I would go back and certainly recommend it if you were in that part of town.

    Quick service when we were in a hurry without compromising on the quality. They are obviously geared up for people in a hurry for concerts as when I asked for my coffee in a hurry they offered me it in a takeaway cup. Fantastic.

    Yen is perfect for pre theatre-menu is fantastic and it's hard to choose! The service is excellent and the night we attended we were off to a show at the Hydro. As usual the food was served amazingly quickly, despite a packed restaurant, and we made the show in plenty of time. I love Yen!

    Have been to Yen Rotunda on many occasions ... have tried both the Italian and the Chinese food and so far have never had bad food .. lol had a few order mishaps but it's been quickly resolved. The service is quick, especially for Pre Theatre / Show. Lunch is slightly more relaxed. Overall a great place for food.

    Booked on a bit of a whim during a weekend in Glasgow when we suddenly realised how far away the restaurant we'd actually booked way. The meal was fantastic, a lovely selection of foods and they were all fantastically cooked. Service was great, staff were very attentive, but not overly pushy!

    Service was very rushed and therefore couldn't really relax. Felt like I as in a fast food place rather than a restuarant. Felt the food was flung in the table & no acknowledgement from staff ie enjoy your meal. Also 1 of our waitresses was chewing gum! This is the 1st time eve I haven't left a tip.

    Excellent food and fast service however, the waitress was pushy and not very friendly which spoilt what was supposed to be a romantic meal. Would recommend for a pre-theatre/concert meal, but not somewhere to go for a quiet romantic dinner.

    Great location for people visiting secc or sse hydro as you can park in one place and walk to both the restaurant and concert. The restaurant was extremely busy but despite this the service was still quick and efficient. There is a pre theatre meal however the menu is a little limited if you are a vegetarian but the option is there to eat from the ala carte although this makes it a little more expensive. All in would recommend.

    Well organised, we arrived 15 mms early and the place was totally full, the head waiter very politely advised us that they were running very tight to their schedule and asked if we minded coming back at our allotted time, we went to the bar upstairs ... the table was ready on time and we ordered within ten mins, prawn crackers on the table, five mins later starters arrived - mains came five mins after clearing starters - quality - very good, portion sizes , not huge but certainly more than enough, I like that - it was a pre theatre menu and service, so we wanted a quackish in and out, and that is what they did, I would like to go back and sample their a la carte menu sometime.

    Had yet another fabulous meal in Yen Glasgow. The choice is really good with a mixture of Chinese, Thai or Japanese cuisine. Usually really busy because of its proximity to the SECC and the Hydro so I would recommend you book. Reasonable price and we had a special offer so got 25% of our bill.

    We went for a meal before going to a concert. It was great tp hear the groups music playing in the restaurant when we arrived, and for the whole of our meal - added to the night. Super fast service from very friendly staff. Food small portions, but ideal for a pre-theatre, and great value for money. Vegetarian option available too which was great for me.

    Took my kids here as a treat before the Katy Perry concert, the food arrived quickly, which considering it was so busy was very good especially as you're conscious of time with a concert to attend. Food was nice, a bit pricey but then I guess that's Glasgow prices... all adds up to making the experience!!

    Our first time at Yen Rotunda but definitely not our last. The staff were very polite and helpful. The food was superb. ( I can highly recommend the bbq duck.) The location is ideally suited for nearby trips to the SECC, Hydro, Armadillo and just a short walk across the bridge from the Science Centre and Imax cinema.
