I am a regular diner at Sosban and have to make sure I book months in advance. The restaurant is very different to most as it provides you with a relaxed, leisurely dining experience. You are not rushed to turn tables but are made to feel special. The food is of the highest calibre, course after course of flavour punches... More

Laborious and tedious experience. Am sorry that I wrote such a glowing report on first visit. When you go in the restaurant is a fog of cooking mist and smells. You sit down in a soulless room. You have courses not of your own choosing come out in dribs and drabs over a heniously long period of time so much... More

There is limited seating allowing... More

I've been to Sosban once a year since they opened - and i'm over the moon to say that its just got better and better. The couple that run the restaurant are just lovely and go out of their way to help (I met the owner in a lay-by in Brynrefail to arrange the collection of a voucher for my... More

Having read several reviews and seen articles in the papers we knew that we would have an interesting meal. We were not disappointed! The food (8 tasting dishes) was delicious, different and beautifully presented. The restaurant was very well appointed but comfortable and the service was friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit. We must book for next year.
