Not excessive prices, but expect to pay at least $30.00 to get fed. I really like this place and was so pleased to find this gem in Whitecourt. It gets cold here in... More

I have been to Soban many times and it WAS great. I am not sure if the new ownership is the problem or if it is just a continuous slide downhill created by the original management. The signature salad dressing is very creative and delicious. The Tempura is the best I have ever had. Unfortunately, there is no customer respect.... More

The service and quality of the food was excellent. The prices were a bit high. We found the restaurant cozy, and they had these neat little buzzers in each booth that you push to call your waiter!
