“Great flavor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Shogun has become by far one of my favorite japanese restaurants in th tri-city area. If you get want to eat tasty and fresh food in this category, I highly recommend it. Everytime I visit, it has been a great experience. My favorite dish is the Sesame Chicken - but, don't let that stop you. Everything they make is great. And don't forget to try their sokitinis - yummmmm.

“Last minute take out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

While downtown had the craving for Sushi - Shogun is impressive outside-looking-in so we figured why not give it a shot. Glad we did. From the outside it looks much larger than it is inside. They did a very nice job with decor - modern and fresh. The parking lot is a huge bonus in downtown Albany!! We sat at the bar and enjoyed a libation while reviewing the menu and placing our order. Menu is great - not huge but large enough to cover all the basics. Prices reasonable, nice selection of sake. We ordered the Sushi for 2. The order comes with 22 pieces of sushi and a chef special roll. I requested more salmon sushi as it's a favorite as well as rice or soy paper instead of the seaweed as I don't particularly like rolls prepared with seaweed.

Our order was freshly made and timed perfectly as we finished our cocktails. Arrived home and dug into the much anticipated delights. Sushi was fresh and delicious, special roll made as requested and was fabulous and extra salmon sushi just as requested! Their ginger has an extra little bite to it which was appreciated. All in all it was a great meal - sushi was perfect. We will be back - next time I think we'll dine in.
