We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and friendly service. We chose the restaurant because many of the restaurants were crowded and probably long waits with the regular fare from pizza to burgers. Shogun was a great choice with quality food.

Pretty decent Japanese food. Servers were friendly, portions are pretty good. Atmosphere fits the price. Pretty good americanized sushi. I didn't like their fried oysters, however, as they were a bit overcooked.

Came here set at tables where they cook for you. It was miserably hot. Food tasted good service was soso. While walking out I noticed the sushi side was much cooler. Wake up about 7 hours after eating here and then run to the toilet. Food poisoning. Had to be the scallops I ate here. I will never be back... More

Came in at lunch time. Service was good. Sometime you can get a slow cook. We didn't. Ours was fast and did a good job. Enjoyed my lunch

My husband and I love teppan cooking. The showmanship the chef displays is a fun part of the experience and the food was great. I love the miso and ginger salad before I had the most delicious filet mignon with fried rice and vegetables. The music is loud and the atmosphere is lively. We had fun trying to catch the... More

This was an entertaining experience as well as fantastic selection of food. We were lucky enough to have Alfredo as our chef, his antics and interactions kept all age demographics at our table engaged and laughing. His ability to toss rice into our mouths was a highlight. His personality alone charmed children of another dining family into both good behavior... More

The fried rice was a little oily the squash was a little burned, and the protein was a little bland. But the worst thing was the music. It was so loud and raucous that you couldn't talk to people at your teppan table, hear the waitress or she you. Sorry I went there doubt I will again.

My husband and I have passed this restaurant multiple times since being in Bakersfield since March 2013 and we finally stopped to try something different. We were pleasantly surprised after looking in from the outside; we were concerned because of the cement floors and older fashion furniture. We were given the choice to order from the kitchen or have the... More

I enjoy this restaurant because its interactive. You get to play with your food! Despite the palyful banter with your server/cook, the food is also very tasty. I enjoy the grilled scallops and the fresh suhi rolls! Very good for special occasions, anniversary, brithdays.
