Was really excited about visiting this restaurant as had heard rave reviews about the Teppanyaki chefs and their food showmanship.
The reality was very disappointing.

There was really nothing entertaining about watching someone cooking on a griddle. There was no flair or showmanship. The 'japanese rain' (sesame seeds sprinkled over food under a strobe light) was very lacklustre.
The food was bland and basically piled on to the plate in a heap.

The only positives are that the steak was cooked perfectly, the wine was well priced and that due to winning a contest, the meal was free.
Am going to go back to try the sushi but as for Teppanyaki - no thanks

This is one of our favourite places in town to eat. Wonderful atmosphere, fun shows with the cooks and the food is always to die for

I live in vancouver and eat sushi all the time; this was one of the worst experiences I have had!
I ordered:
-edame (it was ok..),
-sashimi- looked like the fish had been sitting out for days- there was no colour to the salmon and the tuna fell apart
-spicy yam roll, this was the best thing I ordered but I've had way better elsewhere..
-pacific roll, this had to be the worst thing I ordered- the pungent fish smell was so overwhelming that I couldn't even make myself try it.
All of this and a sopora cost me $43 before tip; I will definately NOT go back here!

We have ate here before and had good meals at dinner time. However it appears at lunch time that it is quite slow.

If you want Teppanyaki in Prince George, visit Sakura!

Shogun had a poor atmosphere, boring chefs, and plain tasting food.
