“Authentic Japanese cuisine”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our family has been enjoying Shogun for many years. It is a warm and friendly place with outstanding sushi as well as dishes for less adventurous folks. The master chef, Mr. Ito, has been here for more than 25 years. He knows his stuff.

“wonderful neighborhood sushi”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

super friendly, fantastic sushi at a very reasonable price. The owner takes care of all visitors and makes you feel comfortable. the classics are done really well with a great amount of fish in each roll. Spicy salmon is the best around. Also have some very well done tempura

“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.
