“wish I could like it more”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

not hard to get in to, reasonably priced, BUT maybe not the freshest ingrediants, and surely not the friendliest service. Closed on Mondays. The sushi master is welcoming and knowledgeable. The waitresses, not so much.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

The atmosphere is the not the reason why I go to Shogun....I go for the fantastic sushi...The fish is fresh and delicious and the rice is simply perfect. The service can be spotty, but that is part of the charm...I think that the sushi is the best in Boston....I've been to them all and I keep going back to Shogun. The salad dressing is delectable....

I've been to Shogun tens of times.. I've been going there for almost twenty years...I just dialed them and they are open during Irene....I'm heading over...

“The best of Boston, no question.”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

This small restaurant may not look the best or be the fastest because it does get crowded but the sushi and sashimi are fresh, tender and melt in your mouth. We have been going for years and never had anything but the best. Itosan has been the sushi chef for years and makes perfect bite size portions that are delicious.

Very good sushi. Dining room is basic but clean. Service is pleasant but can get slow-ish during rush times.

Reviewed September 29, 2008

Very surprised. The chicken teriyaki is extremely dark meat unless you pay $1 more for white meat, but they will not tell you this until you receive your plate. The sushi was dried and one roll had a hair in it. The waitress removed the roll with the hair but did not apologize. The red wine was served cold. Overall I was very disappointed.
