Yummy Asian cuisine!

Delicious food in a fine little Asian themed restaurant that doesn't get enough attention due to the mini-mall location. The best sushi I've had locally!

Portions are good and prices are reasonable for all that you get here, we have enjoyed every visit. Staff is always friendly and helpful, the chefs do a good job and keep the kids entertained and eating. Always... More

Sit on the other side away from the hibachi tables. Amazing bar. Great appetizers. Excellent sushi bar. Fun to rent a room and get a sushi boat with friends. Reasonable. A unique experience.

Shogun has the hibachi area, with the chefs cooking at the grill complete with the tricks. It also has a separate seating area where you can order sushi and other items off the menu. I've been to both sections. The food at the hibachi is amazing, especially the fried rice My husband always enjoys the sushi. Vegetarian friends find that... More

Their food is delicious! The chefs are amazing. Of course, you pay for what you get.. it is a little expensive but we had a great display of culinary arts/chef skills and took leftovers home.

I was going out with my girlfriend and some friends and we had a super nice time together. The live shows are fantastic and much fun. Food quality wasn't as high as expected but the overall experience equals that out. Would definitely go there again. P.S.: I was visiting from Switzerland so you can say that the restaurant attracts international... More

This used to be my favorite place to go in Rockford for sushi and good food. But today it all changed, sushi had couple of bones in it that my five almost choked on it. Waitres gave us no service at all but at the end charged us 17% tip, which she definitely did not deserve. Our cook could not... More

Amazing! We came here to celebrate my husbands birthday. Flavorful, fresh,melt in your mouth sushi. The fried tempura and tuna roll was excellent too. You get sushi at the teppayanki restaurant also. Order a mai-tai, shrimp at the hibachi (a must have here - juicy, tender and fresh beautiful shrimp), and the rest, sushi.

We went to Shogun for my birthday with a group of 8, what a great time from the yummy MaiTais to the delicious dinner with our chef, Felix, celebration bash with singing, icecream dessert and photo, to the fun karaoke! Always a good time to remember!
