“Fun and good food”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We have been to Shogun many times over the years, and never been disappointed. As you walk in, the Shogun warrior armor should be your first clue this place has atmosphere. If not, the spinning water wheel and giant koi pond inside should. The chefs at the tables are hilarious, and my kids love being able to try to spin and flip the egg. The food is great too. Definitely a great time for all!

“Awesome sushi”

While it is super pricy its super worth it. Very fresh and delicious. Would recommend all of the food. And the cocktails are delicious too :)

This place is always fun with great food. The best Japanese food in Rockford! So much better than "the other place"

“Birthday Celebration for Large Group”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We had a party of 11 and made reservations well in advance. When we checked in the people that work the front desk we not friendly at all. I was quite surprised. After waiting 15 minutes after our reservation time I inquired and was abruptly told -"you're next." We were seated at a grill by ourselves due to the size of our group.
Our server was attentive and the chef was engaging although not as entertaining as some of the other chefs. The food was very good and a good time was enjoyed by all.

“Hmm”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

The people working the front were rude and inappropriate. They make you feel like you owe them something. I wonder if this is a family run restaurant. It's like a bunch of snobs. The food was not up to par. You can get this type of food but better in Rockford. Try hatchi hatchi - or even at the mall! Don't waste your money.
