    Good food and service but they try and cramp too many people on the long tables so you can't hear each other and there is no privacy. Quite funny to hear a couple next to us talking about their sex life...well it was Valentine's Day.

    Julie’s is my favourite place to eat in Glasgow anyway, and she never ceases to exceed expectations with new menus! The cocktails were incredible- definitely have the spicy paloma! Great menu and loved the experience of trying out Chinese traditions. Service always so warm and personable and generally just can’t recommend this place enoughx

    We had dinner at the Acid Bar (Julie's Kopitiam) on a Sunday night just before a gig was starting. The food was really nice and fragrant and we would go back to try more. Unfortunately the bar was extremely noisy and the service quite slow (the waiters were quite busy with serving the bar) and that spoiled the experience. Maybe some space redesign (adding noise absorbing panels or change the configuration of the dining area) would help making it a more comfortable dining experience?

    The food was excellent but the acoustics in the venue were awful. It was way too loud to easily have a conversation and there was a band setting up next door which made the noise levels way worse. Also, the staff only told us on arrival that we’d have to leave by 9pm as they had another event booked in that night and had to clear the venue. All in all a bit of a disappointment and a real shame as the food itself was first class and we’d been really looking forward to visiting.

    No issue with the venue, and had wonderful meals there previously with Ka Pao. Julie’s Kopitiam’s is grossly overrated. The food is lazily hashed together, inauthentic and not true Malaysian cuisine. Who would use ready made frozen roti canai, fold it over and call it a murtabak for example. Overpriced for teeny prawns. So disappointing and no idea who is leaving these glowing reviews.

    The food was really poor quality for the hype of the dumpling night. One dish that was served was wontons in a noodle soup, and the noodles were stuck together, as if they were pot noodles. Dim Sum, Opium and Dumpling Monkey offer far better dumplings, and if you really want a benchmark of what they should taste like, try Din Tai Fung (currently only in London). The set menu cost approx. £25 per person which is extortionate for Malay / Asian food!!! I wouldn’t recommend and nor would I waste my time trying another pop up at SWG3. Go mainstream if in Finnieston!

    Food was cold and mediocre at best. Braised aubergine: literally half of the massive aubergine in the soup of soya sauce, no cutlery given with it. Its impossible to eat it with the chopsticks folks!!! The best part of our meal was a bottle of portuguesse wine. Dessert nice, but lacked sweetness for me, personally. I was so disappointed I dont even want to try their venue on the South side.. £70 out of the window, had to make sandwiches when got back home.. not impressed at all, although heard amazing things about South side venue..

    I was there for my friend's 40th and the food was delicious. Great cocktails too. The only thing was the menu change. When I booked the table for 1:30pm the menu on the website showed an extensive choice. When we got there we were presented with a brunch/lunch menu which was predominantly brunch with not much lunch at 1:30pm on a Saturday. I usually wouldn't mind but I'd already had breakfast and was looking forward to choosing from the menu I'd seen online. My friend who's birthday it was had also been expecting the bigger choice menu. So a little disappointment that could have been avoided. Overall though, food was great and service was great. Small things to elevate service - would suggest only clearing plates away when everyone has finished eating. And I had to ask for a bowl from my prawn peelings. No bowl of water/lemon to clean my hands either. Little touches that could be considered...

    Everything about Julie’s at the Acid Bar was brilliant. The food is next level good; the venue is cool and modern and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Each dish was so tasty and unique; the team behind Julie’s have accomplished something really special. I’m already planning my visit back.

    Overall the experience was ok - not as good as I was led to expect. We arrived on time for our table but were seated at the bar to wait for another party to finish - this was ok but seems quite unnecessary as there were lots of empty seats that didn't get filled in the time we were there. The front of house staff also checked my name several times and I felt like my booking hadn't gone through, so I felt a little bit out of place at the start, as though they weren't expecting my booking. The waitress also only gave us one menu and seated us in the middle of a bit long communal table, which was noisy and not ideal, especially as there were still free seats at other tables and in one case the whole table was free. The food was good but the menu wasn't discussed with us as I expected and I think the menu needed that extra touch, which we saw other people, in bigger groups, get when they arrived.
