“Pricey, nice ambience, good teppanyaki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Ambience and decoration is very nice, touch of japanese style, quite dark, well structured space for quite some privacy.

We had sushi and teppanyaki. Sushi was disappointing for me, it was not bad, but outside of Egypt you can definitely get much better one. The choice is balanced between local and imported fishes.
What is really good is teppanyaki, done by Egyptian chef in japanese dress, but the guy knew what he was doing. Tasty fresh meat, well prepared with nice preparation just in front of you.
It's really pricey even for Intercontinental in Cairo.

“This is how i get addicted to Asian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

There are certain things that make this restaurant great:
1- Their great team and service skills. And more importantly their friendliness.
2- Rich menu and great taste for the food.
3- Calm setting of the restaurant.
4- Their food is really healthy. For me great place to enjoy the taste and watch calories.

Shogun is still the best Asian restaurant in Cairo.

“Definetely The place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Shogun is by far one of the best places to dine in Cairo, if not the best. The food is perfect whether seafood, meat or chicken (yes we tried it all), the ambiance is a fantastic balance between elegant, comfortable and classy while being very cosy. Its an experience, and a very entertaining one at that, the skill of the chefs is impressive and the service is top notch. A guaranteed great night of fine dining and fun to be remembered. Somewhat pricey but worth every penny, a Perfect for a special occasion or a group of friends.
