I am a Sushi snob. There is no such thing as average sushi it's either good, great,amazing,spectacular or horrible. Shogun is good. Considering that Salinas is probably the worst city in California for food. Shogun is a diamond in the rough. We went to Kokoroo...More

The quality of the sushi here is absolutely fabulous. The service is very good, and it is suggested you get there early as it is always packed.

This place was recommended by our hotel. The food was ok nothing I would write home to tell people about. Since it is a buffet you won't leave hungry. The deserts were the best part of the meal.

I didn't know there was such good sushi in Salinas. Even my sister and nephew, who eat lots of sushi, rated it high. Hope to go again soon.

I wanted Sushi and upon my last visit had visited the one in North Salinas already so we needed to check this one out. I loved the location, décor, service and the food was excellent especially the Dynamite roll. WOW I should have ordered another...More
