Stopped in for lunch for the first time today at Soban. This is one of those locations that I have been missing out on for years. I ordered the bibimbap and it is making me hungry just writing about it. 13 dollars in the stone...More

We went back for a 2nd time. And it was just as good as the first time. This is one marvellous place. The food is consistently good and the service is friendly and quick. What a find!

Our first time there. We had spring rolls, deep fried tofu, pan fried pork dumplings and wonton soup. Then spicy pork bulgogi. All of which were excellent. What a find!

This was only the second time I had food from this restaurant. I am not sure why, because it is such good food. I have decided after this most recent visit that I will be back more often to try more food from their menu....More

We always enjoy our meal here. It's easy for two of us to have a good meal for under $30. Vegetarians can eat here as well as meat eaters. Every time we come we say, "Why don't we come more often?"

We didn't know what to expect when we got there but were very happy with what we found. It was very clean and a great introduction for us to Korean food. I got the beef tacos and wonton soup, while my wife got beef and...More
