Love date nights here.

Much better than the wagamama in town we used to go to.

Been a few times and never disappointed. Service is great, really attentive. Food is excellent, so much to choose from it’s hard to pick! Nice place to go with friends to share food and have a drink, great atmosphere.

Visited for the first time last month so we were keen to try again
Had the same food but my Bulbogi was nothing like the first with little taste or meat

If you want some mediocre and slightly overpriced SE Asian fusion, this is your place. It's not as expensive as a lot of the places in Finnieston, which is I think the only reason why it's open. It's also hugely popular for delivery, for some inexplicable reason. I can't really recommend it.

The only good thing about this place is that the servers are pretty nice.

Second time we’ve been before a hydro gig and can’t fault it. Lovely staff and tasty food, what’s not to like. Advise booking ahead as it gets busy, food comes pretty quickly too.

First class fare. Excellent service. Friendly, helpful staff. Good value for money.

This was first time we had been to Pickled Ginger in Finnieston but it will definitely not be the last! There was an excellent selection of tasty, flavour-filled meals, catering for all kinds and sizes of appetite.

Whilst the restaurant was busy (we booked for 5pm on a Saturday), we didn't feel rushed to finish our meal (although we were due out by 7pm). I would recommend booking beforehand to avoid disappointment.

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The waitress was very helpful (we'd never eaten Japanese/Korean before). Portion sizes were generous (there's nothing worse than being presented with a half-empty plate of good-tasting food) and we felt quite full after a starter and a main course.

As this was first time trying this type of food, it is difficult to compare similar restaurants, but if this is the standard of food we can expect in the future, then it was certainly an excellent starting point.

I recommend Pickled Ginger for good food, reasonably priced with an friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We were attending the SSE Hydro which is only a 10 minute walk away, so this would be an ideal place for a pre-concert meal

Great food and a really exciting drinks menu and with lovely atmosphere and service. Had such a nice time that even though it was more expensive than i’d usually go for, was well worth the price and would pay it again. Would recommend the sea bass sashimi and the cocktail list!

First time visitor but will def be back again. We really enjoyed it.

Been a long time visitor to wagamama in town where we've felt it starting to feel a little like McDonald's.

But enjoyed the food much more.

Looking forward to coming back.

This is my my go-to date night place with my husband with their cozy yet modern atmosphere. The service is always friendly and helpful, amazing sushi and I really feel like it’s one of the few places I’ve found that put the customer first. Highly recommend!

Lovely meal at this small Japanese Restaurant. Food/seafood very fresh and well presented. You can buy flights of Japanese Saki Wine or Japanese Whisky so this made the experience a bit more unique. Staff were friendly. Very nice.

Great meal at pickled ginger - fabulous selection of food. Staff very accommodating to give us a sushi selection for 4 people allowing us to try different things. Great recommendations from the waitress. Only slight issue was there was quite a few fruit flies buzzing around but can’t fault apart from that!

The only problem was the service- we waited around 15 minutes to order despite there appearing to be plenty of staff on. We specified the food come at the same time as I had ordered the spicy pork with lettuce rolls and my friend a volcano roll and spring rolls- however hers arrived over 40 minutes before mine. After about 30 minutes of waiting I was told it would be 4 minutes but no explanation why it was so late- and it was a further 15minuts. The food was delicious and would definitely return based on this however service disappointing. Also we ordered with the 20% off and did not realise until we left that this was not credited. Perhaps just a bad evening for the restaurant but did slightly take away from the enjoyment.

Loved, loved, loved Pickled Ginger!!!!

The service staff were welcoming and helpful. Ewen was friendly and charming. The food was amazing. We had a variety of sushi and two entrees that were tasty and plentiful. A gem of a restaurant. Thanks for a great evening.
