Shogun was OK. The Japanese beers were cold and fresh. The sushi was OK. Not inspired but tasted fine. I usually eat at Coo when in town but found it closed. It is hard to give Shogun more than 3 stars but it was OK.

I have never had to give a restaurant a bad review but this has bothered me so much. The food was below average for the price and the waitresses were just rude and didn't know what they were doing. They didn't give us our drinks, they gave us wrong food and then *took it back* without checking if we touched... More

Have dined here on a number of occasions and have not been disappointed with the food. Good extensive menu and reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow considering there were not many dining.

Great entertainment for the whole family especially with the kids. We were here on a Tuesday night and it was packed. Beautiful food, nothing too much trouble. A must when in Canberra!

Well this is not really a complaint, more of a winge. Food tasted fine and was presented beautifully, but if you are looking for a meal... This is not the place, there was so little actual food we had a hot dog on the way home. And the price!!!

The whole time I was there, waitress never smiled nor asked whether everyithing was alright. Food is average. There are many Japanese restaurant in Canberra more deserving of my money. Will never go there again.
