Shogun Sushi: The Best – The food is very good and the price is very reasonable. I don't really like sushi very much but this place changed my mind. The ambiance was very good as well, the interior was very clean and sleek and the decorations were seriously cool. When I entered the restaurant, I was immediately greeted by the waitress and a smile. They made me feel very welcome and got my order taken right away. They were very attentive and answered all my questions.
I ordered some sushi and also a dinner combination. Everything was seriously good! And with that kind of food I was expecting a hefty price, but I was surprised when I got the bill, it was so low! I really recommend this place if you're looking for a great place to eat and enjoy the atmosphere!
THEY HAVE COCKROACHES – I had to give 1 star because it wouldn't let me give them 0 stars based on the fact that they have cockroaches! my daughters, grandson and i had dinner there last night and i just got done filing this complaint on line at dept of public heath:
my adult daughters, grandson and i recently started eating at this restaurant on recommendation because food was good & inexpensive. but last night after we finished our sushi & chicken teriyaki dinners, i reached for my hot tea to finish drinking the last gulp when i noticed the roach floating in it as i was about to put the cup to my mouth. it took everything i had not to throw up on the spot. my oldest daughter arielle showed it to our server who got a look of shock but a bit of a smile when he saw it. he took it to the older lady & gentleman at the register and they all talked about it to themselves for a while...a long while. finally the older gentlemen came to our table and said 'sorry that was just a little fly in the drink...discount?' arielle loudly told him it wasnt a fly but a cockroach and he denied it. he walked back to the lady at the register and never came back to us. after what seemed like an eternity i finally told my daughters lets go to them. after the older lady tended to customers paying their bill she said the same thing about it being a fly and started to hand arielle the bill to pay. arielle again loudly said it wasn't a fly its a cockroach and we're not paying to which the lady quickly said ok and drew a line across the bill. no one ever apoligized to us.
Best food in town – Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.
The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.
The appetizers are delicious.
Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.
Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived
Shogun Rocks! Will miss our favorite waiter tho – We are going to party all night there Friday to send off our fav waiter to his new journey. Can't wait!!! Salmon is supreme, heart attacks byte ya back, monkey brains awesome, octopus and scallops exquisite. Munchin on edemame while watching chefs at work. Extra wasabi plzzzzz Meeting at 5:30 all welcome dutch treat.
Best I've had – I like this place! Never had to wait for good or service
Poor service – We went the four of us on a friday and had a long wait..kind of expected though. They let us order some sapporos while waiting which was cool. When we finally got our table, if took a while for the waiters to take our order. I had to flag them down a few times.
The waiters are mostly younger kids that seem like they have to be there and besides the slow reaction times, you could also see it on the faces. That place must make a lot of money due to how busy they were, so you think they could hire more professional waiters. That shows poor management skills. And when that's poor, you have to think is the food areas sanitary? I ate their a few times and never got (or heard of anybody getting) sick. My wife left her purse there and when we called to check the lost and found, it wasn't there. The crowd is very young and the waiters seem like street racing disrespectful little holigans so I'm not surprised to find out it was gone.
All in all, if you take a more aggressive mode with the waiters and don't forget any valuables.... you probably will have a good time.
dirty sushi – Being a college student I am always jumping at the opportunity for cheap sushi. Well this place is the pits. I know people come for cheap sushi and sake bombs, but be careful of the fish. You always know when a sushi joint is not fresh because the restaurant smells terrible and this one is the worst. The chefs do not wipe their knifes clean when making different rolls, the rolls are un-original and fall apart when you pick up your sushi. The lady who I believe is the owner is horrible rude and takes her time adding up your bill, but the servers are worse. They have never got any of my orders right and Ive been there a few times, and even tried to charge me for their mistake. So if youre in the mood for horrible food, terrible service, and disgusting food this place is right for you.
Been here more than I can remember – I used to live very close to Shoguns and although there are a lot of other sushi places around, I always found myself going back to Shoguns. YES the service is slow and somewhat terrible. I understand that. The food isnt top notch, but it is a lot better than most of the places around. Its HALF-PRICE so please dont go expecting superb sushi. I used to go to Shoguns and have very large parties of at least 8-15 people and we would have the best time. We knew all of the chefs by name and all of the servers and even the owner's. BUT within the last year or so, Shogun has gone down a bit because: 1) Their best chefs have left and 2) the better, faster servers left as well. In part, my wife and I still go and have a good time. The sushi isnt always great, but IT IS good-very good. The servers may be lame and seem to just not care about their customers, but the food is still good enough to hangout.....NOT TOO LONG THOUGH.........the air gets a bit spicy for the eyes....meaning whatever they are cooking, seems to cause my eyes to itch and burn, the more time I am in there. If you want to go to a pretty good sushi place, nicer, and cleaner, Id suggest Kabuki in Hollywood. Pretty damn good sushi....probably better than Shoguns.
Great place to go when you're craving sushi! (to me) Good enough service for such a tasty meal. – I think Shogun is amazingly good. Annnd the wait isn't so bad. Neither is the service. Its a decent wait for such a good meal. Its the best warm sushi on a cold day. Its a nice calm and relaxing atmosphere where you can just chill with friends and family. Come and enjoy some time.
Great place for small parties – It may not be the best sushi in Cali, but you cant beat the price. So what, the service is crappy, it gives you time to socialize with your friends & drink your beer. Its definately not fine dining, therefore you can bring the kids & they dont have to sit still & be quiet. A perfect place to get the friends together for a sit down to catch up, without feeling pressured by the waiters to leave, like other places. If you're looking for quality, I'd say pass, but if you just need a sushi fix on a budget, this is the place.
