“Fantastic food, service had a not-so-good night”

Shogun Japanese Restaurant
Ranked #103 of 374 Restaurants in Santa Cruz
Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Summary:
Great food - definitely 5 stars on food - with really good value for money. Unfortunately, this time the service had a not-so-good night (max 3 stars). We still highly recommend it!

Details:
We went with two friends and were immediately seated. The sushi we ordered tasted very fresh, and we also had a chicken teriyaki box that was HUGE. We definitely recommend the Unagi, which we actually re-ordered because it was soooo good. We had some difficulties getting our water refilled (service-) and some major attention deficits of the service at the end of the meal (service--)

A surprisingly good value Japanese restaurant. Great food, service and ambiance. It provided a fine finish to our hols in this wonderful part of the world. Excellent seaweed salad and tempting Veggie Tempura. Thank you Shogun!

We ordered sushi, chicken "calamari," shrimp tempura, and a salmon bento box. The portions were very large. Everything was well-prepared and served attractively. Our server was friendly, helpful, and efficient.

The restaurant is attractive and clean, sometimes a premium for Santa Cruz. I'll go back
