I came in for lunch yesterday with a friend. We enjoyed lunch but this spot does need a refresh. It was not busy and the service was pleasant. The sushi was good.

Shogun Japanese Restaurant has been in the same location as when it opened in 1983. It has one of the oldest pedigrees when it comes to serving Japanese cuisine in Edmonton, including being the first sushi bar in the city. And while I love sushi, we go to Shogun for teppanyaki.

Inside the restaurant you will find several tatami rooms, intimate tables and of course the teppan grills. There is a positive vibe throughout the restaurant.

They offer a full drink menu. We opted for a bottle a bottle of warm Sake to share for the table. The teppanyaki menu is pretty straight forward. The dishes are made with fresh and flavourful ingredients and light seasoning. You can choose from chicken, steak or shrimp, or go for a bigger combo that includes things like sukiyaki beef, lobster and scallops. The meal comes with a myriad of vegetables (i.e.: zucchini, mushrooms, bean sprouts), that are cooked alongside your main dish. It also comes with soup and salad to start, rice and two sauces.

My favourite item on the menu is the 8 oz. Shogun Steak, which is a New York cut that is grilled to perfection. I am also a big fan of the sauces that come with the meal and usually put them on everything.

The average price per person ranges from $25 for basic entrees, to just over $40 for the Shogun specials. Our bill for four people, including a bottle of Sake was about $130, which is very reasonable when compared to other teppanyaki restaurants.

The restaurant is open for lunch on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and daily for dinner until 9:30 on weekdays, 10:30 Friday and Saturday, and 8:30 Sunday. I recommend making a reservation since it is a popular spot for birthdays and other special occasions and usually fills up fast. There is a small parking lot and street parking available but might be limited given the location.

Service was great. I enjoyed the shrimps, veggies and spring rolls were fab.
The steak I had was hard with fat and I did not like it, the atmosphere was great

I always come here when I want Japanese food. The food has lots of flavour. I always sit at the Teppanyaki table and enjoy the experience.
