Love their sushi!

This restaurant is similar to Pearl in the casino as it is the same owners but it is slightly different. The sushi is great! I would definitely go here again for the sushi but the drinks are weak and not much of a selection. Definitely go for the sushi though!

This was one our worst experiences dining out. It was so far below our expectations and not up to the high standards that has been a trademark of the Woodlands. The host and hostess were ignorant and disinterested. When we were seated it took 15 minutes for anyone to visit our table and we were not presented with menus until... More

The food at Shogun is amazing. Sushi Sunday's is not comparable to any other restaurant in the area. Great Job!

First time disappointed! Understaffed! Extremely poor service! Table was not cleaned off! The female hostess appeared to be in a trance like state! Unsure if she was ill or just hates her job! Food was just ok! Time to find a new restaurant!

I have been at shogun multiple times with my girlfriend sometimes with my daughter as well. The people are always very nice. They have awesome hibachi. Love the show love the food. The shotgun sushi roll is my favourite but I tasted other sushi rolls and they were good too. Prices are good. What else do you need... Thank you... More

Me and my wife usually go to shogun once a month for the Sunday sushi deal. Honestly the same size portion of sushi for half the price. You can eat in or take out.

Food is excellent, staff friendly, it is pricey but similar to most hibachi sit down restaurants in the area. Bento boxes for lunch are a fun experience, as these are hard to find in our area, might be the only place that has them.

I went on a two week trip with my family, who unfortunately does not eat sushi. SOOOO, when we got back, I went to Shogun on Sunday. I absolutely love Shogun. I went over the top a bit and spent $35 on myself, and that includes the rolls being half price. However, I ended up getting three meals out of... More

Me and my fiance enjoy the atmosphere and delicious sushi. The staff is attentive but not over bearing. My only reason they didn't get 5 stars is due to the cheap or frozen tuna they use for spicy tuna roll. It's more of a salmon color than a deep red color that it should be.

Shogun is my favorite local sushi and Japanese restaurant. Half price sushi on Sundays make it even more inviting. Good hibachi too for a fun meal with friends.
