The food was amazing, the chef did know how to entertain his guests at the table, only downfall was that the portions were too big to be able to enjoy the meal

We had 6 pm reservations and were seated right away. The place only had 1 other family when we went in but was filling up as we ate. Eileen was super attentive to our needs. She even let me try the miso soup and brought out the regular "just in case". My kids wanted to try the marble soda and... More

Excellent food (see picture) and friendly staff. I only tried the sushi set menu. It comes with a soft drink and dessert. If you are staying at the InterContinental, you can get a discount voucher at the front desk.

I am reviewing Shogun again after two years. High quality of food and service still persists at Shogun, as it is being the best Japanese restaurant in Cairo. Most important success of Shogun comes from its excellent chef team. Sushi Chefs, Teppanyaki chefs and kitchen chefs are creating really excellent dishes. I would highly recommend Seafood Teppanyaki, all you can... More
