Good (3.5) and entertaining if you try the Teppenyaki

We went to the Shogun Japanese Restaurant by accident and were glad we did as it proved to be an entertaining evening.

I still don't think that Canberra has an outstanding Japanese Restaurant that has Teppanyaki. Don't get me wrong.......it was good...... but not 'omg you HAVE to try this place' good. Will be going back to try the normal menu as i do love my Japanese food.....so watch this space on a future review on Shogun.

They served beers we ordered without advising us there was only Superior Sapporo at $15 per bottle as apposed to normal which was $7. Our entree never appeared and when the Chef cooked our Scollops and Lobster it was soo tough it was un eatable I was very disappointed... More

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.
