Shogun Restaurant Review

: Designed for high-volume production and located on one of Metairie’s busiest thoroughfares, long-established Shogun remains popular, even though the food is not always dependable. Most sushi is made with cooked seafood, and the sashimi items number almost a hundred. You’ll find fairly standard teriyaki, noodle dishes and choices from the hibachi --- there are six hibachi tables and the hibachi chefs are expert and entertaining. The menu also presents a virtual catalog of traditional Japanese fare, from shabu-shabu (paper-thin beef cooked at the table in bubbling oil) to tempura and sukiyaki dinners. Dessert is limited to deep-fried bananas (unfortunately, not as crispy as one would expect with a tempura preparation) with vanilla ice cream, although green tea or red bean ice cream is available, too. Shogun offers cocktails, beer (including a few Japanese brands) and an unimaginative, rarely updated wine list. Among the few pluses: the space is more than ample, with an extra-long sushi bar and a convenient crying room for families with infants.
