If you want a good dinner show and some strong sake I would come here. The show is more interactive then the other restaurant in the area. Food is good you get noodles here as opposed to the other one where they are not included. The atmosphere is good. Can be loud at times but wont detract from the overall experience.

This place is where locals go for good sushi, Japanese food, and plenty of fun. When people are celebrating birthdays, they have the waitstaff gather round, clap hands and sing in unison. There is a real Japanese Teppan-master, showing off knife skills and cooking meat and vegetables in front of you. They have a nice array of drinks, including sake and Japanese beer, and everyone sits in front of the grilling table and watches the show. Food is pretty decent, but not exceptional. However, price-wise, it's a decent price for all that you receive. Highly recommend a visit, especially for any sort of celebration. Loud and noisy, but you know that. Worth a visit, indeed!

I like to start out at the connected bar, Izakaya. Then make our way to the tables, where the chef cooks the food in front of you. the usual spinning egg, and onion Trane. Shogun has the best show in town, and the food is top quality. The steaks are just wonderful. I like to order the dinner for two, steak and chicken, soup salad, & dont forget the maitai's!

When you want sushi, this is one of two restaurants I'd recommend in area. Their "Rockford" roll is delicious. Smallish inside, but seldom too packed to get in.
