Excellent food. It's been awhile since we have stopped in here for dinner but it was well worth it. The food was very good, as always, and the entertainment is always fun. Always try the different sake...hot or cold...when you go.

I would NEVER tell anyone to go to this place. The chef put on a show, but the food is not good. The wait staff is blah. Ours called me named to the owner and was rude about asking for napkins and shrimp sauce for my kids. I talked to the owner about an issue and the fact that the server called me names and he was very dismissive. The food is overpriced, and blah. Go to Geisha. They are great and nice to the customers.

This place is terrible, it's that simple. I'm pretty forgiving, but lines have been crossed.

The atmosphere is nice, and the staff is friendly, I can't fault them for anything. For what it is the prices are alright as well.

The food is mediocre at best. It's the worst I've eaten at in Virginia Beach, but there are a lot of little hole in the wall places I've never tried. It's greasy and fatty, even for Asian, and they skimp on the seasoning, badly.

The sanitation is what's really an atrocity. The fact that the health department hasn't shut them down can only be attributed to incompetence or bribery.

The floors were so dirty that there piles of filth built up around the benches and the hibachi. The counters and tables were so sticky that the one time I touched one it left my hand sticky and I had to go wash before I ate.

I am not confident that the plates had been washed with actual soap, I think they may have just been wiped off with a damp cloth. I actually watched our chef shove one of his utensils into the garbage chute to pack down overflowing food garbage from at least the past several days, and then put the same utensil back into my food. I would have walked out at that point if it wouldn't have offended the people who invited us.

This is the second time I've visited Shogun, having been invited by friends of the family, and these conditions have not changed since last time.

The first time we visited, to top off an evening that really gave me the willies, there was vomit on the bathroom floor and the drain in the floor was clogged. On this second visit, it was urine instead.

In short, I will not be going back. If you want Hibachi and an entertaining show as your food is prepared, go to Otani's.

May you find what you seek,

Nice decor and well designed out. The show is medicore the several times that I have been at lunches or dinners. Seems a a bit pricey for the quality of food and ambience. Their Teppanyaki is definitely the focus -minimal on the sushi.

Pros: Ambience for group fun

Cons: Average food

After having tried most of the sushi restaurants in the beach and Norfolk, Shogun has my vote hands down. The only restaurant remotely comprable is Momo's, which at one point had Shogun employee's working there as well. Shogun's staff makes the experience far superior to that of others, regardless of if you are getting something to go or dining in.

Not a bad place, but DEFINITELY not one of the ""best of the beach"" regardless of constantly being voted that. Sushi is mediocre at best. What Shogun has going for it is atmosphere-- it is exactly what someone not very familiar with/ comfortable with Japanese food wants-- the requisite ""set pieces"" in the decor, the whole teppanyaki show, a very simplified menu. Its ""exotic"" for suburbia and that has its audience-- but for really great Japanese food look elsewhere!

Pros: friendly, nonthreatening, plenty of parking

Cons: predictable, nonthreatening, expensive

The best Steak House in Virginia Beach, American style or Japanese. Great Tepan Chefs prepare the food right in front of your eyes with elegant style. Try the Filet Migon with Shrimp. Save your money and get the free white rice instead of the fried rice which you pay an extra dollar for.

Has a great Sushi Bar to boot.
