Good Korean-inspired food in the West End of Glasgow. Prices are decent, the restaurant is nice and the service is OK. I will visit again.

My friend lived in Korea for a while, and was expecting the food to be adjusted for a British palate.
She was blown away and said she would bring her Korean family here to enjoy the food!
Absolutely delicious, generous portions, beautiful decor, quick and friendly service, perfect location by the subway and close to Kelvingrove Museum.
Thanks and we'll be back soon!

Amazing food, fresh, spicy and portions were very generous! We all had vegetarian options (bi bim bap, kimchi rice, japchae noodles and gimbap roll and kimchi sides to share) and would recommend everything! Service was quick and friendly. Definitely will be back!

Having lived in SK for 4 years I felt the food was genuinely authentic. Kimchi Jeon was superb and the fried chicken was succulent and crispy. looking forward to trying their BBQ and their JJamPPong next time.
Highly recommend

Food and service was great. The menu was quite limited due to delivery issues but that is beyond control of the restauarant. Likewise, I'm not a fan of this 'no music' policy but again, that's government policy, not a restaurant issue. The restaurant did really well in making the best of a difficult situation and I look forward to returning when things are a bit more 'normal'.

This is one of my favourite places to eat in the west end. They never disappoint, I always leave a very satisfied and happy customer :) They also were late bringing out our gyoza which was a starter (wasn't a big deal to us) but yet they took it off the bill, which was a nice gesture! Friendly staff too and definitely bang for your buck. I'll be back!

Room temperature beer, over priced dumplings lacking flavour and not fresh tasting, good prawn tempura but poor/ boring dip, awful soup,not as described at all, basically a bowl of boiled cabbage in green water. Some drinks on menu not available. One of poorest meals I have ever eaten. Actually left me angry. They're just going through the motions.

We had a really great experience in Bibimbap in the West End. We had been before in the restaurant located in the city centre but we found this new one much more comfortable and spacious. The staff was absolutely lovely and caring (they did a great job recommending food and taking into account the allergies we might had). The food was really tasty and so abundant that we couldn´t finish the meal so they kindly prepared it so we could take the leftovers home. I would 100% recommend Bibimbap, it is a great experience!

We enjoyed our first visit to Bibimbap West. The main reason was that the food was excellent, all our choices were delicious and plates went back to the kitchen clean. The service was a bit slow although our server later in the evening was a great improvement and very chatty and helpful. Our main issue with the place was the noise level of the music...it was too loud to begin with and then, inexplicably in a restaurant, a DJ appeared and the music was so loud we had to shout to each other and were barely able to hold a conversation. Even when there were only a handful of tables left the music was still booming. It seemed very unnecessary and really took the shine off what would have been a great experience. I would definitely go back for the food but would be put off by the thought of having to endure the music/DJ again.

Average food. Felt the fried chicken was a tasteless version of KFC - not authentic. Restaurant was too noisy - there is no need at all for a DJ!

On arrival we were welcomed by a smiley manager. We asked a few questions about the menu and the waitress happily explained all. The Bibimbap stone bowl was delicious as was the Korean Chicken. We will be back again soon.

The food was just as amazingly delicious as the original one in town, and with the added bonus of a proper Korean bbq option! Will need to try that next time. Warning - spicy is SPICY!! Tasty but definitely sweats abound

The Bibimbap is already a safe choice but this time I ordered the spicy squid for a change. It was rather disappointing. The squids were too hard and tasted like rubber. The music is also a bit too loud.

Fantastic food had by all 4 of us but the service was lacking unfortunately. We had booked weeks ago in anticipation of the BBQ experience (travelling 60 miles round trip) and on arrival we were told we hadn't booked one of these tables (there was no option on booking) and weren't offered one despite seeing that one was free the entire time we were there. Drinks were missing from our order and sides from our food , no apology and just plonked on the table when they came on to separate occasions of asking. That said the food was really lovely , as were the cocktails and we would return , hoping to try the bbq this time!
