With its bright green painted walls and rustic Asian aesthetic, the Hanoi Bike Shop is a fabulous food spot tucked away on Ruthven Lane, just off the busy Byres Road in Glasgow’s West End.

You’ll find a special menu including Vietnamese bacon and eggs, freshly made dressings and sauces, hand-pressed organic tofu made in-house every morning, okara cakes, sticky chicken, rice paper rolls, as well as hearty pho dishes.

Their menu includes a ‘build your own Pho’ option. Pho is the noodle and broth dish that fuels Vietnam and the bike shop offers a beef, chicken, seafood or Tofu and mushroom option. The Pho is served with bean sprouts, pak choi, spring onions and crispy shallots.

Launched by Colin Clydesdale and Carol Wright (of Stravaigin and Ubiquitous Chip fame) the Hanoi Bike Shop is styled with a Vietnamese canteen vibe complete with an abundance of colourful silk hanging lanterns, bare wood floorboards and bike parts discarded shabby-chic style throughout.

In the warmer months, Ruthven Lane acts as a bit of a sunspot due to its fantastic outdoor area, which makes it a great place for summer dining. In addition to eating at the Bike Shop, you can explore the surrounding West End area, including taking a stroll around the university, Kelvingrove park and along the picturesque Ashton Lane.
