“Great food, but location stinks”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Seated quickly and the food was great! Chef was entertaining- they took coupon with no trouble at all. They included the tips on the bill though, which i do not like -- -they end up shortchanging theirselves because i WOULD have tipped more. The only real bad thing was the location --- driving all the way down international drive on a friday night was beyond horrible and took nearly an hour to go 10 miles. And then the restaurant is behind a small hotel and the signs are not clear where to go,

“Shogun is Shonuff FUN!!!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Just happened upon a discount coupon for this restaurant....and what a pleasant surprise! I couldn't imagine enjoying a meal with a table full of strangers (and small children), but the food and the evening were great!!! The food was prepared at the table and the process is so awesome that everyone (old and young) get swept up into the preparation!!! The Chef is a Master Entertainer and wows you one moment (with a rice Mickey) and has you laughing the next. Last but not least, you have a tummy full of delicious food and a table full of new friends. Don't miss a chance to visit Shogun Japanese Steakhouse in Orlando, FL!!! Take Grandma and the kids because its fun for everyone!

“Sho Do Love the Shogun”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This was our first time eating at Shogun in Orlando. We were drawn there by a coupon on restaurant.com. Our server was very friendly and took extra care to make sure we were happy throughout the experience. We didn't make reservations, but arriving around 6:30 PM on a Tuesday evening had no wait.
I had the New York Strip prepared medium rare; it was tender and delicious. Other members of our party had steak and chicken and salmon. All were pleased with their entrees. The fried rice and veggies were just to our liking. None of the sauces were sweet which was exactly what I was seeking. The ginger dressing on the salad was as good as I have had. Our chef was friendly and entertaining and prepared the food exactly to our specifications. We joined a party from Minnesota who were thankfully missing the blizzard in that state this evening. Last year we ate at another Japanese steakhouse, but found Shogun as good or better. There was plenty of food with no room for dessert. The iced tea was a great complement to the meal.

“Fantastic time”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Had the chance to go to Shogun for hibachi when my fiancee and I were up in Orlando. We had been there in the past and had ok meals before. However this time was much better. The food was fantastic (my fiancee normally doesn't eat portions of her meal, yet this time, she was eating all of it :P ). Our chef Jerry was awesome. He was really fun and interactive and his food was on task. Our server (forgot her name, sorry) was really good, the hostess was sweet, just in general the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and needed. I definitely plan to come back the next time I visit Orlando and will have to request Jerry's table (I don't know if they do that or not, but I'll try anyways).
