This place is OK, they need to update the decor & furniture. A little pricy for what you get and they charge for every refill on sodas, without telling you ahead of time (Imagine my surprise!!) There's a new Tepanyaki on Maple that's nicer and around the same price.

This restaurant is WAY WAY overpriced. The quality of the food is extremely poor and the soup, salad, rice and vegatables were practically inedible. My steak was actually good but so not worth the price. They charge $2.50 extra for their fried rice which tasted cheap and nothing like Japanese rice and the chef burned the eggs so I wasn't able to actually eat it. I have eaten at many hibachi style Japanese restaurants and the quality has always been amazing and the prices much much lower. The service is extremely bad, very inattentive and slow. The manager was very hostile and completely uninterested with the customer's satisfaction. I do not recommend this restaurant for anyone and I will never return.

PROS: None, my experience here was very bad
CONS: Price, food quality, service, no free refills

Being Asian and having eaten Japanese food all over the world, I would NOT recommend SHOGUN to anyone. We had to wait 15 minutes before a waitress came and took drink orders, and the speed of the service only picked up when another party(of 5) came in and filled up the table we were at. Yes, you have to share a table with complete strangers and they try to tie you up until the table is full. The chef we had was really bad, he started the "show" and dropped the spatula every 3 seconds, obviously very unprofessional, and once it even flew out and almost knocked over the sauce bowls on the table. They charged an extra $2.50 if you wanted to have FRIED RICE instead of regular white rice, and it was sooooo extremely salty I could barely swallow it, the NON-JAPANESE chef obviously had no training on how much soy sauce to put in the food. Even the white steamed rice was disappointing because it wasn't authentic Japanese sticky rice, it was like Jasmine rice or some sort of cheap long grain rice. COME ON! It's a Japanese restaurant! the least they could do was have authentic sticky rice and not some cheap brand rice! The chicken and steak were ok, but still too much teriyaki sauce. the vegetables were even worse than the fried rice, swimming in soy sauce and just impossible to swallow, my sodium intake of the meal must have exceeded the daily recommended by 10000000%! So 2 hours, a billion grams of sodium, and $100 later, the best part of the meal was the green tea ice cream... which wasn't even that good but compared to everything else it had to be the best part of the meal. All in all, food was nasty, everything was EXTREMELY overpriced, and I will never go back there again. I would have rather gone to the food court at the Galleria Mall and gotten a Chicken Teriyaki with real steamed white rice for $6.

This is the ultimate dining experience. You sit around a grill and after you order your food a chef comes to your table and makes everything right in front of you. He does a bunch of tricks while he cooks, such chopping an onion up, filling it with alcohol and lighting it making fire shoot out of the top. I ordered a drink in a Buddha glass with the straw coming out of his belly button. A little pricey, but it's a dinner you won't soon forget.

PROS: great fun
CONS: You're paying more for the experience

Excellent food and talented chefs. Great atmosphere too. A bit pricy, but worth the money.

The show is good, it really is, but not really worth the cost of the food. The food is good, don't get me wrong, we've tried a number of items on the menu, including hibachi steak, hibachi shrimp and the calamari, but this place is just a wee bit overpriced. AND...they charge you extra for the fried rice - $2 per person - for RICE!

Their sushi and sashimi is of high quality, but again, expensive. The menu is fairly small and limited to a few simple items, but the susi/sashimi menu is quite extensive.

The other thing I don't like about this is if you go with a small party, you'll end up sitting at the "table" with strangers, and honestly, I just don't like that.

We have taken our 2 children, and spent upwards of $120 on dinner for the four of us, and then gone home and ordered a pizza later in the evening.

Not really a family-friendly dinner. I suggest you go yourself one time, and make your own choices about taking the family back.

This restaurant is always pretty busy, and it's a different kind of restaurant in that a chef comes out and cooks your food on a large stove/grill in front of you and does it with flair. They put on a whole show tossing eggs in the air and making sesame seeds snow, etc. which is fun to watch the first couple of times. But when you break it down and really examine what you're eating, the food is not so impressive. It's basic stuff, some fried rice and veggies and protein - which may sound kind of healthy, but really it's not. The food is pretty unimpressive and it's really not worth the money. I guess go for the show, not for the food.
