Loved the food, absolutely delicious. Had some Miso Ramen (very authentic), Chicken Yakisoba, and some sushi. Would definitely go again just for the yummy food Service wasn't best. The server seemed to be covering too many tables. Would still go back though.

If you are stuck in Utah County and Sushi or Ramen are a must, there is only one choice - Shoga. Don't be fooled by the strip mall, Shoga has an excellent choice of Sushi in addition to traditional Japanese fare. Always check the special's board, enjoy the purple haze sake and the chill background music. If you are feeling... More

I am back to report that my favorite Sushi Bar is back! They re-opened just around the corner from their old locations. They Vegas is the best roll on the menu!

Shoga is gone due the Nordstrom Rack moving into that strip mall and taking their and several other Restaurants place. Their Vegas Roll is the best I have had anywhere. Does anyone know if they have moved to a new location?

We were visiting from California and came here for lunch before our return home. Sadly, it was not the best meal with which to finish our visit to Utah. The server was nice and polite. However, the sushi chef and the quality of the sushi we ordered left much to be desired. We tried a series of different sushi rolls.... More

We don't have good a Japanese restaurant in Orem. The food here is actually quite good. But the service and the owners who stand behind the sushi bar scowling at customers are ruining this place. Try harder to stop treating customers so rudely. Stop hanging out behind the sushi bar and getting an annoyed look on your face when a... More

This really is my favorite local restaurant. I just love the food. I love the presentation of the food. The lunch specials, served so attractively in bento boxes, are amazing. I had a disastrous customer service experience a couple of years ago (an entire tray of bused plates dumped on my head--noodles and teriyaki sauce in my hair, in my... More

This is a great find. Overall their food is really good with some excellent dishes thrown in. Their strawberry salmon salad is my favorite and my husband says their tuna tataki can't be beat.

We live in the area and this is where we go 9 times out of 10 for sushi. Everything is fresh and delicious. My hubby loves all the sushi and I love their yakisoba, it is the best I've ever had with lots of fresh veggies and lean delicious meat. The price tends to be a little less than some... More

I've been here 3 times already on business lunch and believe me: this is the best japanese food I've had in a long time. Fresh, savory, authentic... staff is super friendly. As the title suggests: I'm becoming a regular!
