Excellent and humble – For a small place this had some of the best prepared sushi. It's family owned so the service was excellent and personal. I highly recommend it
Worst Sushi Experience, By Far – A friend invited me and a few others out for sushi recently. Her first choice was Namiko, a fairly reputable joint off 52nd Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard; unfortunately, we decided Shogun was a better meeting point. We would deeply regret our decision.
The service was abysmal from the moment we walked through the door. The hostess sighed audibly when we asked to combine their tiny tables to accommodate our party. She offered us no water and abandoned our table for a good 10 minutes, at which point she finally appeared from her hiding space in the kitchen. Mind you, the only other diners at this point were a party of three, who already had their meals.
The sake was warm — a surefire sign of a poor sushi house — and the sushi was worse. The tempura tasted like cardboard, and the tuna had the consistency of fish left in the sun for hours on end. I would have liked to have washed the taste out of my mouth, but again, our waitress disappeared into the kitchen for a good 15 minutes.
But by far, the most unpleasant experience of the evening came when our waitress told us to beat it:
"OK — You folks need to go home now. It's late, and my boss needs to pick up his child." - Classy.
For miserable service and food that will have you praying to the porcelain god, this is your one-stop shop. D—
Can it get any better? – I go here twice a month because it is so delicious, and the owners are so great! I have tried about every sushi restaurant in the Denver area, and this is by far my favorite. The tuna is great! I think someone was expecting their tuna from a can.....sorry pal.
Some people are never happy – Simply put this place is the best. Shogun is a family run business and it shows. The service is top notch and the food is amazing. Having grown up in the N.Y.C. area I have been to a lot of sushi resteraunts. When I moved here 13 years ago I was a suhi snob, I knew I would not find anything comparable to the restaurants back home. I was wrong. This place has perfected the art. I have tried several other sushi restaurants in Colorado and I keep coming back here. I am constanly amazed at the freshness of the fish here in landlocked CO. The prices here just cannot be beat, so many other sushi restaurants are quite proud of the tiny servings they offer for twice price. Don't let this fool you though, a meal at shogun is like hitting the sushi lottery!
Phenomenal – This is an incredible place to experience sushi. It is so beautifully presented and the quality of the food is phenomenal. I drive an hour to get there and its definitely worth it!!
Worst sushi – The sushi here is awful. Tuna was not fresh, rice was mushy and the seaweed paper was tough. I would not reccomend SHogun to anyone.
