We came here for lunch, we were starving and this hit the spot. It was nice and quiet upstairs. The service wasn't speedy, but the food was tasty. We ordered the kaarage and gyoza to start, then we had the soba noodles and tempura. All was very good. Being above other restaurants meant it was quiet but the restaurant also... More

Shogun was a nice diversion from the regular, being Japanese. When we arrived there were not many people so I was a little apprehensive about eating here, however it filled up fairly quickly and considering it is upstairs with no street frontage, that says something! The food was very good but not exceptional - if you are looking for culinary... More

Big mistake, really slow service, sashimi was awful, watery in texture (frozen?) and lacking taste. In fact, all dishes lacked flavour. The only ok part of the meal was the miso soup but my guess is it was the instant variety out of a packet. It still out shone everything else. Pretty sad.

This was a go to joint for one of my mates! I have to say one night was outstanding and other nights we did not have the greatest service. To be honest, my last time there was outstanding! The Sushi I had was some of the best I have ever had.

Visited the Shogun restaurant with friends over the weekend. The Teppenyaki show was fun and not over the top. The food was good and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere and the staff was helpful. They also have sushi if you want that and do not want to sit at the grill. All in all and good experience.

Definitely have had better Japanese food. The tempura batter was a bit oily but a good size serving. Came with rice, lettuce & sauce. With green tea total bill was $25 which is a bit pricy for the food. Pleasant service.

Who knows how this restaurant survives? Maybe because Teppanyaki is hard to come by in Canberra and with a location near plenty of offices, a gimmick keeps the staff farewells rolling in. I didn't hate the food, it's just not that good. The show itself is really boring with no personality. There are so many other better options.

Always a favourite of ours when feeling like Japanese either alone or with visiting friends. Service is very prompt, we hardly ever wait more than 5 - 10 minutes for the meals to arrive. Very tasty and good size serves.

Our night began by waiting 2 hours for the chef to even arrive in our private dining room (with a party of young, tired & hungry children). We had a 6pm booking, and were not eating until 830pm. The wait staff then managed to stuff the up quantities and portions for every protein course. The chef himself had no showmanship... More
