We go to a lot of Japanese restaurants, but Shogun was impressive! Our dinner was cooked to perfection, the service was impeccable, and the entertainment was exciting. We would go there again the next time we're in Bowling Green!

Shogun has the best sushi I have had anywhere. This restaurant can be pricey but you more than get your money's worth with an ample amount of quality food. The restaurant also has lunch specials. You won't be disappointed.

We had an excellent experience at dinner tonight. We had our 4 year old with us and even though she said she wanted to go to the place with the "fire" when we arrived she didn't want fire... our Chef was so accommodating. She told the server she wanted eggs (that they use to put in the fried rice) and... More

I went here twice while in town on business travel. I ate at the sushi bar section which was wide open but busy because it was the all waitress travel to pick up their sushi. Everyone was very nice though so it was not a problem. I had the lobster roll and two other rolls that I can't remember. If... More

We were so impressed with the variety on the menu, choice in personal table or hibachi table, and beautiful decor. Our waitress was so knowledgeable and efficient. And, we were pleasantly shocked at how affordable it was. I would travel to eat here again!

We found this on a brochure from our hotel. Normally, a risk but this place was busy on a Sunday night and the food was good. Not the best Japanese I have had but good. Parking was full so I found a very open lot next door.

Loved it! You can pick the classic Food & Show at the grill or have a nice quiet table. Food is made in a variety of ways and is always prepared to perfection. My wife & I's goto spot when we have someone to babysit!

Terrific food at excellent value. Total bill much less than expected. Had our food in 10 min on a busy Friday night. Good service. No complaints, would go again

I used to go to Shogun a lot when they were located at their old location on Scottsville road. Now with their new building and their very ornately decorated place, the atmosphere has dramatically changed. I recall friendly service at the other location. Now I walk in there and I'm not sure if I'm going to be kicked out for... More

Have eaten here a couple of times and food is really good. Usually eat at the bar, since am travelling alone, for faster service. Certainly, it is a very busy place with lots of college students from WKU, but overall it is a nice place to eat and reasonable priced. There are a couple of other Japanese restaurant in the... More
