A great place to be at!

The food was great, the place is always well organized and the staff members are very welcoming. One problem we faced was that some of the Teppanyaki tables's fans weren't efficiently working, leading to some of the food's smell was all over the place.

The food was great, the place is always well organized and the staff members are very welcoming. One problem we faced was that some of the Teppanyaki tables's fans weren't efficiently working, leading to some of the food's smell was all over the place. Otherwise I highly recommend checking out this place, if you're a fan of Japanese cuisine.

When the waiter felt we are confused whether to go for sushi or tepenyaki and took our time choosing . He just started to be impatient and speaking in a less behaved manner. Something put us off our intrest and we had to leave the place for a more friendly restaurant.

We ate at the restaurant 4 nights on the trot. We kept meaning to try somewhere else, but the food and service was so fantastic, we just went back for more and more, trying different meals each times and being very leased with each one. Very highly recommended. Superb, fresh food, great ambience, attentive service.

Shogun is located at level -2 of the Intercontinental City Stars hotel, straight at the exit of the main elevators. They have a number of big Teppanyaki tables where the food can be prepared in front of your nose, but can also serve freshly made excellent tasting sushi. Egyptian wine and beer are also available and can be recommended -... More
