We travelled an hour by taxi across Cairo to eat here [cos of Trip Adviser]. With a three month old baby. He loved the fish. So did we, but he just wanted to watch the fish in the substantial fish tank, while we enjoyed some of the freshest sashimi I've come across. The meat too was meltingly good, delicate, tasty and tender.
Service slowish, the glass of red wine pretty dreadful really, and probably not a smart idea. But the staff were lovely; they were so helpful, nice to the baby and kind generally. And the food was a delight. No wonder this is the number one recommendation.

When we arrived in Cairo, we were told the only place to go for good sushi was Shogun, which is perfect as it's located on the lower level of our hotel (IHG City Stars Cairo). The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, topped off by the large fish tank right in the middle, surrounded by plenty teppanyaki counters.

Being THE sushi restaurant, we decided to try their "eat-as-much-as-you-like" special for LE 250 (also includes a glass of sparkling rose). The service was polite & efficient, with everything made fresh right in front of us. Once we received our finished sushi platters, we couldn't believe the size of it!! 41 pieces in total, with a large selection of sashimi, nigiri, etc

Although we didn't recognise some items, we gladly tried everything and were not disappointed!! Neither of us could manage to finish the entire platter and they were more than happy to package whatever was left for take-away to enjoy later.

From my experiences thus far, Shogun most definitely deserves its TripAdvisor title of No 1 restaurant in Cairo!!

We were staying at the Intercontinental so we went on trip advisor to choose a place to eat, number 1 was inside our hotel Shogun!! Down in the basement a lovely setting with a fantastic central fish tank and pleasant speedy service. We ordered an unlimited sushi mixed plate and everything was delicious and fresh with beautiful presentation. There was more than we could eat so we asked for a take out, they were happy to oblige and packaged it all in a big cake box for us too give to our friend to take home. Just such a shame we were the only diners there.
