The original owners have returned to Shogun and really have made a lot of improvements over the past year. They have renovated the dining room so that it is now brighter, cleaner and much more appealing. We went on a Saturday night, without a reservation, and found it to be not busy at all. I agree with other reviewers that they are understaffed ... they have 12 different hibachi stations (2 stations at each of the tables). One waitress and only 2 different hibachi chefs. The food was excellent, but service was slow for drinks, etc. With the original owners back I can only hope that word will spread about the improvements and that business will pick up for them, allowing them to hire more and more qualified waitstaff.

The on line menu is all wrong. Still we had a great meal. Waitress was a little slow on following up on drinks.
A nice house wine. The chef was great. All in all a nice time

Attempted to celebrate my cousins' 50th Wedding anniversary there last night. Was a total disaster, reservations for 6pm guest of honor was cooked for LAST and served at 8pm. Understaffed and not sure if anyone new anything about serving. Didn't know what drinks were mixed up, delivered wrong and food was nothing to brag about. There are plenty of places to eat in Portland/Scarborough area don't waste you money!

Would not recommend this place. We had reservations for 6 PM and it was 7:30 before HALF of us got served. When we called for reservations we asked them if they could accommodate 12 people and they said no problem. At 7:30 a server came in and did one half of the table while the other half had to just sit and watch. After he was completely done someone else came and did the other side....meanwhile we were done eating and had to just sit and watch them eat. This was supposed to be an anniversary celebration and they completely ruined it. We would never go back.

The teppanyaki was great. The food was excellent. This dude can make a volcano! The restaurant is clean and the service was exceptional. We'll be visiting again, next time we are in Scarborough, ME
