Our date-night fave!

We go here for date night a LOT! Love the food and the atmosphere. We usually eat on the Izakaya side, because you can get the same food, it just doesn't have the show.

Sushi is decent and service is excellent. On the Hibachi side not so well. Very crowded, Proportions are not always even. Lacking in flavors and quality- High volume customer base.

My son and I visited tonight and we both really enjoyed this place. We both had sushi and it was very good. The waitress was very attentive and returned often to fill our water. Place had nice atmosphere with koi pond and water wheel. There was lots of Japanese decorations that made this place authentic. The prices were very reasonable... More

Staff is super friendly. Drinks were amazing. Sushi is probably my favorite to rave about. Definitely must try the Hollywood Roll. Coming back when I am in town again.

I can't rate the whole experience as bad; the food was good, the chef was entertaining, but seemed a little worn out and tired but he still made us laugh. I was turned off as we were waiting for another member of our party I went to the bar to order a drink while we were waiting. There were two... More

We went for dinner last night, and I had the scallops, which were delicious. The soup and salad are good and the ambiance is nice. The chef was personable and we had a good time. My wife had Teriyaki steak, and it was very chewy. Not the normal quality of food for Shogun. nothing life changing, but not what she... More

I have enjoyed several dinners here, mostly ordering sushi. I have never been disappointed! The hibachi grill is entertaining as well as yummy. Sitting at a large square table with the chef in the center, you are seated with other patrons. It's a,great time to meet new people if you wish, or just converse with your own group.

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!

This is always my family's first choice for birthday dinners, the kids love it and the adults love it just as much. 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
