Like Pickled Ginger. Handy for the SSe and Hydro. First time I went was excellent. This time because we were at a poky table at the back it spoiled it for us... not a big restaurant but felt hemmed in. Shame as meant to be a special night and it spoiled it for us. Loved the rose gin with grapefruit.

OMG the best Japanese food I have had I just loved the cosy feel, and the staff couldn,t do enough for us. I especially loved the cool cucumber water especially as we where not drinking a great wee touch.

Food was deliciously cooked and beautifully presented. The pumpkin katsu dish I had was a super vegetarian dish that felt healthy and not too heavy but filling.
Staff were also very helpful, can't fault it!

Fantastic atmosphere, cosy, delicious food! Service was a little slow and not as friendly as I’d have liked but by the same token wasn’t rude or dismissive, just a bit ‘meh’. Would still come back here in a heartbeat, the food was the best!!!

First time we have been there, we had heard great things about it and were not disappointed. It was my birthday and we also got engaged there too! The food was absolutely amazing, loved every bit. We tried several different things because we didn't know what to get, the server recommended a couple of things to try too. We were very surprised at the bill, I think after being to yo sushi and Sapporo before, we were expecting similar prices, but it was a lot less. We will definitely be back, and will tell others about it.

Great sushi restaurant in Finnieston, definitely recommend, and very helpful restaurant manager who fixed the poor service of OpenTable who incorrectly allowed me to book a table when non were available, sending me a confirmation as well. The special treat for our family could have been ruined, but thank you Ross for sorting it out.

Quick meal before a concert at the Hydro. Good sushi platter with miso between two. Generous mains (Katsu pork and spicy salmon) both came quickly. Quick attentive service. Much better than the equivalent high street chains! Would go again.

This was my first time at Pickled Ginger as I had avoided it for years as I didn't think I would like it, it was great and I wish I had been braver sooner! The food was excellent and the service was very good.
Only thing that could have been improved upon was the Katsu curry was not warm enough, but the flavour was great so I didn't send it back. I also tried the mixed tempura & chicken Gyoza which were both excellent and I would highly recommend. My friend got the Jeyuk-Bokkeum, this is spicy but awesome, I am not usually a fan of pork but would suggest you try it! Overall I would definitely go back again for lunch or dinner, if you are in Finnieston it's definitely worth checking out!
