I love going to the Shogun in my lunch hour. The service is always quick and the food is amazing! (Try the lunch bento plate!) I have taken friends and relatives to the Shogun on countless occasions, and we are always extremely happy. The temppanyaki is so fun and delicious!

On a recent trip to Canberra, combining both work and pleasure, I had the good fortune to find myself dining at Shogun Restaurant in Civic on a Saturday night with my bestie. We hadn't been sure what we fancied to eat - and there is such a plethora of choices now in Canberra its amazing - but we stumbled onto... More

After reading some previous reviews I was quite dubious about going to this restaurant. All I have to say is, I don't know what Shogun restaurant those bad reviewers went to, but this was a very enjoyable experience. It was my nieces 18th birthday and 14 of us descended on Shogun...we had the Teppanyaki and,wow, what a show. Great food,... More

Shogun provides an excellent option for lunch, though their dinners are also fine. Service is good and quick so you can have a good lunch in 40 mins or so

The service is very slow and staff are not friendly. We had normal a la crate and a shabu set. We went there at 6:30pm, food don't come after 45 mins. And there is a very rude waitress there. Will not recommend to anyone.

My husband and I on a rare night without the kids decided to eat out after seeing a movie. Our usual fave Sammys Kitchen was full so we wandered across the road to Shogun. My first inclination was to walk out after receivng a luke warm "welcome" including a good 15 min wait for anyone to come near us to... More

Not happy, paid $160 shabu set, with 14 pcs of beef and veggies. Dont ever try this restaurant if you dont want to ruin your appetite. Poor service by a lady waitress. I dont know whats wrong but shes not nice to the customers.

A cute little place hidden away upstairs in Garema Place. The waiters are friendly and the teppenyaki is to die for! Prices are a little high, but its worth it.
