“The best Hibachi restaurant I've ever been to!”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

I've personally visited over 20 Hibachi grills across the world, and this is definitely the best tasting food I've had at any of them! How? It's all in the sauces!

At most Hibachi restaurants, you get 2 tiny bowls of sauce, most often a mustard-based and a ginger-based sauce (white/yellow and red/brown respectively). At Shogun, we received 2 sauces to begin with, and then our chef made 2 additional sauces. All 4 were absolutely incredible! They're custom-made here, so they don't really have names, but the one that really stands out is the spicy sauce. I don't know what's in it, but I bought a quart of it to take home (a true bargain at only $10!), it was that good! Don't be scared of the term "spicy", it's not that spicy, but has a little kick. Just right and very tasty!

Like most Hibachi places, it is a little loud with all the knife clanging and people applauding as the chefs perform some trick. And of course the grill fans are right there in front of you, and they are very loud.

Our chef was very entertaining. He did all the typical Hibachi knife twirling, the onion volcano (but with a unique twist of pouring sauce inside, which then spouted out like lava. Never seen that before!). The food he cooked for us was very good, though no different from most good Hibachi places. But those sauces... Amazing!! Really made the night!

I'm not sure if the sauces are his personal creation or standard at the restaurant, but they were all incredible. I'll be stopping in every so often to buy more to take home.

I highly recommend this place!
