I haven't eaten here in years. A couple of years ago, I ordered sushi (rainbow roll) and got food poisoning. I did go back a few months after I got sick, but I didn't order sushi (of course).

My husband likes the place... but then again he doesn't eat sushi.

Pros: cool atmosphere

Cons: bad sushi

Well it is another sunny day in the lovely Henry Ford city and I figure that between a haircut and grocery shopping I should have a bite to eat. What luck ? the strip mall includes this little Japanese restaurant Shogun. Me being the fan of Sushi that I am I figure why not.

As I step through the door I notice the nice Feng-Shui touch of coming up to an etched glass picture of a Geisha, hang a left facing the nice fountain, step right and have the feeling that I just stepped up to a garden restaurant in Japan. The dining area is raised from the entrance letting the diners chat in privacy without being seen by everyone that walks in. There was no one at the desk when I stepped up, but a waitress quickly noticed me and obliged me by showing me a place at the Sushi bar ?? my favorite spot.

My server was with me promptly and my tea was not long in coming either. The look at the menu revealed the usual suspects in terms of sushi bites and rolls as well as a few variations I had not seen before. There is also a variety or habachi plates and sashimi; there was even a kids menu though no fries and burgers.

I settled for a Sushi plate and got to indulge in watching the sushi chef work. The California Roll that is the base of the platter was done in short order and with the fresh ingredients I watched the man peel and julienne with diligence. Before he started on the other pieces I watched him whip together a soft shell crab roll quickly and with such care that I did not hear a lot of crunching from that tempura crab. Next up were the sushi pieces for my plate. The fish was quite fresh and the slices were cut with great precision and then joined with their little rice balls with care. All in all, it was as much a joy to watch my food being prepared( hence my love for sitting at the bar) as it was to eat it.

The classic California Roll was just that and there was no reason not to have a dab of Wasabi with it to add a bit of spice. The Sushi bites( two salmon, two tuna, one yellowtail, one shrimp and one imitation crab) were much larger that I have seen elsewhere. Usually the fish fits neatly on top of its rice cushion. In this case there was just enough rice to make it look as though they had arranged little fish on my plate. These pieces were definitely two bites! The fish was excellent, with no fishy smell and distinct mild flavors. Soy sauce and Wasabi were truly optional.

The entire plate ran about 13 dollars and with drink it cost me $ 16.25.

In terms of ambiance I must say it was very nice and with the sound of water from the fountain you got to forget that there was a highway intersection and parking lot outside. There were of course the usual tables and chairs, but next to the hostess desk were two booths for traditional Asian dining with cushions at low tables. Behind the sushi bar was an intricate shelf that held a sword display along side a plastic Lionfish, a few glass plates, and the dishes and platters used for the sushi. The long plates next to the sword rack looked a bit untidy but that would be the only minus point for this restaurant. The place was clean and comfortable and the food was great. Knowing me I??ll probably go again the next time I go for a haircut.

Shogun's steakhouse food is pretty good but the portions are very meager. Prices are high, too. Skip the sushi -- it's not very good. The staff is helpful but they tend to get orders wrong, maybe because they have trouble understanding you. My family prefers Shinto over Shogun any day!
