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

This restaurant usually has pretty good sushi for a reasonable price. However, I've also been here when their sushi didn't quite taste very fresh, which is not good for a sushi place. Also, one other compaint I have about this restaurant is that their service is a bit slow.

This place has such potential!!! The sushi is pretty good with excellent prices, but unless you go when they just open or happen to go when they're slow, you will wait .... a long time for service. Best bet, go early, sit at the sushi bar, and don't be in a hurry.

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.

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.

Pros: cheap food

Cons: poor service, horrible food

.

Pros: Great food. Good prices. Open late. Generally a good crowd. Vast menu.

Cons: Horrible, horrible, horrible service. Oh, and the service is horrible.

Horrible service seems to be very common for Korean-owned sushi (Japanese) restaurants. Typically, Japanese pride themselves on customer service. Koreans have not learned that yet. Not being racist, just making educated comments based on my extensive travel to the far east and being a sushi expert. However, don't let the service stop you from going. And don't take it personally. You have to be much more aggressive, but polite, and you can get in, and out, in decent time. Just make sure when the waiter comes to your table that you have all of your ducks in a row. Place your edamame order, drink order, sushi order, and tempura order all at once. Be honest with the staff. Tell them you expect them to check on you every five minutes for drink refills, etc. And don't be afraid to raise your hand and flag down any staff member in a black shirt. You'll thank me later.

So I gave the restaurant another shot since the first time I went was on a Friday night and they were pretty busy. The 2nd time I went wasn't crowded at all & still the service was horrible. You actually have to eat before going to this restaurant because you're going to be sitting at your table forever. This place SUCKS in service. I will never go there again.

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.

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.

Cons: little bit of a wait but its totally worth it!

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.

So, this place is already known for bad service from the waiters, but people underestimate the rudeness and the dirty handling of the fishes. My friends and i sat at the bar in front of this old chef, who rudely ignored our requests, and pretty much threw our food plates down to us. He got agitated everytime we asked for more sauce or ginger, and clearly expressed it by muttering Korean words under his breath. My friends were from out of town, and i wanted to treat them out for some cheap food and drinks, but the night ended in disaster. By the time we were leaving, this old chef was outside in the front smoking a cigarette, staring us down like he's some kind of thug or something. That nincompoop really ruined our night, and I am never going back there. I highly recommend NEVER going there, but if decided NEVER sit in front of this old chef. He is what you would call a straight up A**HOLE.

With todays gas prices it's nice to find a place that gives great quality for a reasonable price. I will fore go a little service and stand a little rudeness by young waiters for a cheaper bill.

I've been dragged here many times with friends who go to CSUN. I personally hate this place and would never go there on my own time. If you've had good/YUMMY sushi, you would never open-heartily choose to dine here. The sushi rolls do not taste fresh and the scallops have a rubbery texture, which is not how fresh scallops should taste. I say you think twice about eating here. Oh, and more importantly I went last week (again, due to friends), their grade was a B. . . you decide.

i dont like the service or how old the place looks, this place is full of smoke stinks
they cook there famous scallops inside with a toaster in make your eyes burn.
My recomendations for this place is stop cooking inside by the sushi bar, in take any cooking at the kitchen Hire smarter waiters to serve, paint the place in change carpet make it look nice.
sushi is ok is not bad it taste fresh wish is important, in price is very low.
i stop going to the restaurant because of the smoke.

I live in the valley so I go here kinda often when my cheapie friends want sushi. It doesn't matter what time you go .. weekday lunch or dinner is just as crowded and long of a wait as a Fri or Sat night. It's always packed w/ CSUN students.They have absolutley no system for seating people whatsoever so it ALWAYS takes way OVER an hour. You have to constantly go up and ask the RUDE hostess what's your wait status because you'll see people after your name on the list get seated before you. One time, we finally got seated in a crummy corner behind a party of 8 in a table blocking ours. They totally forgot we were even there! A couple that got seated after us got served their food before they even came to take our drink order and give us menus. Then after eating, we even had to wait to get our bill and pay. The worst part is, they never feel the need to apologize, resolve the situation, or even take suggestions to improve their customer service. It's the best CHEAP sushi you'll find in the valley. But if you're not broke and don't have at least 4 hours to waste, pay the extra bucks and go to a decent sushi joint w/ better service and food.

I've been to sushi restaurants all over the country, but this one is by far one of the worst I have been to. It's always packed (why, I really do NOT know) and they don't even have anyone greeting people to tell you how long your wait will be. If by chance you do wait it out and sit, you're going to be waiting forever for your food, and you'd have to be laying on the floor choking on a roll in order to get a drink refill. I've tried this place out a few times, trying to give it second, third and fourth chances but when it comes down to it, I'd rather drive a little further for better service and GOOD food. Aside from the horrible service, you get sushi that isn't even fresh! People you're eating RAW FISH, the least they could do is keep it fresh! They will serve you a premade California roll out of a batch of warm, sitting there for a while rolls. Just one look behind the bar at the sushi chefs will give you an idea of what I'm talking about..

I came in solo on a weekend around 1:45p.m. Most sushi places, everybody in the place shouts a happy greeting to see you walk in. This place, the older asian female waitress started to groan, oh, it's so late... Then she ushered me to the sushi bar without asking if I wanted a table or not, and right away asks me incomprehensibly and brashly what kind a drink I want. I asked her to repeat, and she yells Drink! and then if I wanted all you can eat or if I wanted to order piece by piece and I say I want to order and she cuts me off without explanation. She came back, slammed my Coke down and refused to help me anymore, just telling me to order from the boys in the center sushi island. The sushi chef, Mike, was really nice and offered to explain their system. You sit at the bar for one hour and can eat anything on a limited special menu, including soup, salad, appetizers, sushi, and cooked foods, for a flat fee. I asked for that and began having some really nice food: shumai, teriyaki, salad, miso, rolls, nigiri... I just had to make eye contact, and Mike immediately asked me for my next order. 45 minutes later, the original waitress begins kicking people out. They have a break and close from 3 to 5, I think. She also prevented people from coming in after 2:30, saying too late, too late, waving them away... I realize this is a clue and signal for my check. Mike was nice enough to ask her to switch the check from piece by piece to all you can eat flat rate, but she begins complaining loudly in Korean that she didn't expect some fat samoan lady to eat $40 worth of food and put her in the poorhouse (I don't look Korean, but am actually not Samoan, but half Korean, understood, and was thoroughly humiliated). I actually paid them the original price, and iciliy told them the overage was tip for Mike only, then left. The food was great and the prices were good, but the service is horrible and there are plenty of other sushi places in Northridge.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I took my friend there and I'm trying to get her more into sushi. She's just a lil nervous about the whole raw thing. I had read on here that they have fun and different Rolls and they sure do have some great ones to choose from. Very good prices..and I think I have converted my friend into a Sushi Lover!! The food was great...we had really good service and we are totally going back!!

I was a client from the moment they first opened. The price of the sushi made up for the bad service for a while. But than the service got really bad and I could not get over how dirty the place was. I have been back on and off as sometimes a friend will want to go there to save money. But I just do not find it worth it. The food is over sauced, the ice tea is the worst, the unagi sauce is bitter @ best. Do they have some neat combinations of items...yes. Are they cheep..yes... but I cannot get over bad service and a dirty place.

If it's latenite and you're in Northridge, Shogun is probably the only place around for miles thats open. I think the owners know this and due to the lack of any competion, they really don't stress the customer service very much at all. The wait is usally extra long. It's a popular place for CSUN kids to hang out. The hostess is usually rude. The waiters are neglectful. The sushi is perty descent. You gotta try the lobster hand roll and the monkey brains. But really the biggest draw is that its open perty late and it's in Northridge. I usually call in an order for pick up if it's late in the evening and nothing else is open. Due to the bad service i've given up eating inside the actual restaraunt.

There's a reason why the wait is so long. The sushi is very reasonably priced and the selection is like no other sushi joint in the valley. So they take forever to bring you your green tea, and you have to wait in a little tiny corner... the bottom line is the sushi is very tasty and the atmosphere is fun.

Cons: Cramped, long wait, service

This is definitely our favorite sushi restaurant in the Valley!! We used to head there often when we lived near by. They have some great original rolls like the Monkey Brains. When you are looking for a place that doesn't taste like every other sushi restaurant give this one a try. Can get pretty crowded around dinner time, especially on weekends.

Pros: Unique Rolls, Tons of Parking, Cheap

Cons: Service is kinda slow and seems disorganized

I have been to Shogun several times and I have to be patient with the service. It is just plain terrible. The lady who I believe is the owner doesn't pay attention to the customers. She is rude and slow. We always get our checks mixed up with other tables and the owner doesn't care to apologize or to improve the service. Also, we have to wait for awhile to be seated although the restaurant is not full. It will take forever if you ask for something extra from them. However, the food is pretty good and the price is right. Just be sure to check your check before you leave. By the way, it is not a good place for a date, but it is a good place if you want to seriously eat.

Shogun has really great rolls and good sushi for a low price. Only problem is the waitstaff and, who I believe to be the owners, are slow and rude. Everytime I've been there or called in an order, I'm told 20 minutes and it's always 40-65 minutes. When you are seated it's impossible to get the waiter/waitress attention. If you are a college student, might be your scene, but for a relaxing dinner or date, forget it. I've seen customers banging on tables, playing glasses with chopsticks, etc.

Food: Tasted VERY GENERIC, no authenticity at all, VERY AMERICAN.

Ambience: General sushi environment.

Service: Poor. There were empty tables in the restaurant, we waited 20 minutes to be seated. The waiters and hosts noticed us, but all they cared about was socializing with each other. We asked for green tea and lemon and the waiter never brought them to us. Service was cold and stale. The waiter looked as though he didn't want to work there.

Value: Comparing to the food they served, the prices should be lower. You can get better sushi elsewhere with those prices.

They have a good list of half-price items. Food is excellent but you have to get past the attitude of the people who work there and the long, long, long wait for food. We've experienced a few probs when we've eaten in: rude and extremely frazzled wait staff, very very long wait for food, and cooking oil smell on our clothes and hair when we left. I don't like thinking that we were breathing that into our lungs the whole time, too. For take-out the wait is double what they'll tell you on the phone and they don't apologize for it! Forget it!

Well you know what they say you get what you pay for. This place was alright the first time I went but had a bad experience the 2nd time. I had to get someones attention after about 5 minutes of sitting there, you almost feel as if you are bothering them when you ask for something. Everyone there seems to be training cause nobody seems to know what they are doing. You'll get okay sushi but disappointed with their service

I love this place. Good sushi for half the price. I'm no hardcore connoisseur, but the price does not sacrifice the taste. If you're looking for some decent sushi in the valley and aren't willing to spend big then this is the place to be. The place gets packed during the weekends though. Not a good idea to bring a big party at this time coz seating is limited. But while you're waiting you can enjoy a alcoholic beverage. They have beer and wine. The ambience is nice. It has nice japanese laterns adorn the ceiling with little dividers for tables lining the wall. I don't care much for the pictures of past visitors or the drawings on the dividers. Whenever I come here I always leave full. And I'm always surprised at how little how spent for all that sushi.

Shoguns in the best place in the San Fernando Valley for late night sushi. They offer half price sushi all day and everyday and they do not skimp on taste. Their sushi is excellent.

Shogun is one restaurant which deserves recognition. The entrance has a seating area for waiting patrons. Inside, the Japanese decor is comfortable and the shogun swords above the bar draw much attention. Next to the tables, along the walls, are pictures of past visitors and their parties, birthdays, etc. The food can be chosen from the main menu or from a paper list of over 40 different types of sushi. Most are half-price. This restaurant is one of the best choices for delicious, creative, and non-expensive sushi in the Valley. If you choose to visit on weekend night be sure to make reservations. The wait can be up to an hour some nights. Shogun also has Karaoke nights and is open until 1 am some nights. If you are in the mood for a fun comfortable atmosphere and great food at excellent prices, Shogun is the place to visit.

I really liked their sushi in the $6-$8 category. The other ones aren't that good. The fish is fresh and the price is low for this quality sushi. The ones that I really liked are rainbow, Shogun special and dragon.
