“Great Japanese Hibachi Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

The looks have gone down over the years, but the food is worth the wait and price. They have the best shrimp sauce ever.

“The worst restaurant I've possibly ever had”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2011

Myself, my girlfriend and another couple attempted to patronize this restaurant on a Saturday night. We had a reservation at 7:15PM and arrived at 7:00PM. We alerted the manager who was running the hostess stand. We got sat upstairs about 10 minutes after our reservation was listed for, not great but not terrible. Well, that was the highlight of the evening.

We waited at our table for what seemed like forever for a waitress to even show up. The waitress they sent couldnt even serve us alcohol as she was underage. The girl was as nice as she could be but that couldnt make up for how poorly the restaurant was run. The soup and salad came shortly after she arrived. The soup was incredibly bland and the ginger salad dressing was just weird. After that arrived, we waited almost 45 minutes for a chef to show up but no dice. We then decided we were leaving and noticed a larger party that arrived after us already had their food! The manager tried to argue with us about paying for the barely edible soup and salad but we were having none of it and finally argued with her long enough for her to not charge us. To top it all off, the manager had practically left our MAYBE 17 year old waitress to twist in the wind with angry customers! I mean, how pathetic!

I wouldnt go back if they shut down the entire restaurant just for us, supplied us with free dom perignon and used the finest cuts of meat available. I cant wait for the day this place goes out of business.

“Wathching them cook”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2010

The chefs ask your order and prepair right in front of you! Great Japanise food. You could easly share a meal! (The kid meal is usualy more than the adult)!!! This place is kinda pricy. But you can get a coupon on http://www.shogungastonia.com/couponnew.pdf

or you can get a kids meal coupon on

This is a great place to eat just be prepaired to wait if you do not have reservations (unless you eat at lunch)
