Had a great lunch plate, the lunch special plates are the perfect size and they all taste great. The server is very friendly and prompt getting orders in and out, great fast food without being "fastfood".

Soban is my favourite place to eat out in Whitecourt. Excellent rolls and Bulgogi are among our favourites. It is expensive so it's not a restaurant I visit more than 4 times per year.

Who would have thought that one could get good sushi and sushimi in Northern Albert?...Well you can. This place is excellent but it's going to cost you. 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
