We have enjoyed Shogun for many years. Exquisitely prepared, always fresh and delicious. Between my husband and I we have tried practically everything. Service is prompt and very polite. Chef is extraordinary. Cuisine is an artwork in itself. Always a stop for us when we...More

Neither my friend or I were in the mood for sushi, so we had other choices on the menu and enjoyed good Japanese food and rather young and efficient service. All in all it was fun, although they should really serve red wine at room...More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is similar to that of restaurants of Japan, with the Master chatting in Japanese with customers sitting at the sushi bar. We ordered the chirashi zushi and enjoyed how fresh the sashimi was. The colors and presentation of the chirashi...More

Go there with friends, with your significant other or alone at lunch or dinner, for 30 years the Japanese food here has been served fresh and flavorful. Tekka maki, California roll, maguro sashimi and broiled unagi are favorites. Casual atmosphere and good value.

We love this homey Japanese restaurant in West Newton. Very casual and comfortable, with good food. We recommend trying it and think you'll like it as we do.

What can I say other than GREAT! Very welcoming, quaint, and extremely attentive with out being bothersome. Great sushi! Great house sake, and very reasonable prices. Try it before spending 2x as much somewhere else.

Nothing is particularly stellar here. They charge you for tea (green tea in a tea bag, cup, and hot water). Teriayaki Cod bento box was average at best. The miso soup was lukewarm. Eel handroll pretty good consistently. Tasty dashi broth in the donabe. Server...More

I've been here a handful of times over the years, whenever I'm in the area. The staff is extremely friendly to every single guest and seems to be familiar with many regulars. The sushi is good too. Decor seems much more authentic than many other...More

We first visited Shogun Restaurant in the early 1980s when we were taken there by the Japanese exchange student who was living with us for the year. She asked the local Japanese community where she should take her visiting relatives from Kyoto. This was the...More
