Shogi Japanese Restaurant

Restaurant details
Reviewed July 12, 2013

I have been somewhat of a regular at Shogi, which has been around for over twenty years. While Shogi may not be the best Japanese restaurant, it is certainly a reliable neighborhood spot for sushi and japanese food. When you first enter Shogi, you will find it to have a clean, homey, and hole in the wall kind of ambience with various pictures on the wall in the back and Japanese style lanterns hanging over the tables. The tables are somewhat close together, so you will hear other patrons conversations. Their sushi, while not the best I have ever had, is fresh and will satisfy your sushi craving. I like their Salmon Skin Roll, which is nicely sized and filled with crispy, broiled salmon skin. If you would like a cooked meal, I like their Chicken Teriyaki, which is broiled and juicy chicken in a sweet and salty sauce with fresh vegetables. Another favorite of mine is their Ikamaru, which is broiled squid served tentacles and all and is slightly sweet and tender in a sweetish soy sauce with a bite of ginger. Hot and soothing Miso soup and a pedestrain Iceburg salad with a tangy ginger dressing are nice ways to accompany your meal. In addition, Yoko San, the owner and hostess, is very friendly, if not a bit boisterous and will remember you with every visit. Louie, the sushi chef and the waitresses also treat you well. Also, while the prices have gone up slightly over the years, Shogi is still a good value as the portions are relatively large and you are given enough food, such as with the Chicken Teriyaki, that you will have enough for two meals. While Shogi may not be the best Japanese food and sushi around, it is a decent place to satisfy your Japanese food and/or sushi craving.

small, family run restaurant - sort of like "cheers", where everybody knows your name... it's a restaurant with return clientele, who are considered family. the owner knows everybody's name, likes, allergies, etc... she is also one of the funniest hostesses around! food is consistently good, fresh - hot and cold.. will take any special order!! very accommodating, and people come back for the "show", also

I have been going here for over 10 years and Shogi's has always been a friendly and reliable place to get good sushi. As other reviewers state, you can go elsewhere and get fancy rolls or better sushi, but Shogi's stands out with her service and quaintness. Yuko, the owner will treat you as part of her family. Louie, the sushi chef does a great job and always will listen to your needs. I recommend you try this place.
