Best Hot & Sour Soup in Caracas...!

(6:45-8:45pm): Place is located on 5th floor of busy shopping center. Open and noisy environment which also hosts a Karaokee Bar; family friendly, but not suitable for business.

Absolutely, love this place. It's hard to find a nice sushi place in this area and Shoga by far is the best I have been. I'm critical of quality and Shoga has always produced quality sushi at reasonable prices. Chef Alex and Chef Enyx are champs at what they do.

I will only own to you... More

I was so looking forward to a good sashimi fix (being from Sydney, we're spoilt!) but came out with less bolivares and a bitter disappointment... The salmon and tuna sashimi were quick-frozen and then defrosted so the texture is pasty, obviously not fresh. There are fresh seafood around, eg in Platano Italian restaurant, so I don't know what happened here.... More

This is my third time in Shoga and I fell with enough courage to try the tuna spicy roll... Result: the best ! With no regrets :-)

Absolutely loved this place. Located on the top floor of the Tolon mall in the mercedes area, you totally forget youre in such a chaotic city. The views are amazing The food is delicious and there's a bit for everyone - even if you're not a die hard fan of sushi. The outside patio is a great place to lounge... More
