Haven't been back for a while but I used to come every Saturday for sushi. It has gone in steep decline from being a fancy place of see and be seen to a place with mediocre drinks and food.

Beachside, chill music, good caiparinhas, excellent sushi. Of course its Luanda so bring a gold bar w/ you when paying the bill, but a nice play to hang out on weekend afternoon with friends and family.

Shogun was the place to be 2 years ago. Today I would recommend to avoid the place. Service is terrible, food comme ci comme ça. We went there for dinner last Friday. There were as many tables occupied than waiters, despite the very small number of guests, service was long and not efficient. We asked for sparkling water, there was... More

An honest and trustable sushi and sashimi option. Furthermore, the restaurant is located ocupado neste momento the Beach, in Luanda Island. They have a large variety of cocktails and drinks. Very good to chill out with friends.

An Oasis in house music specially on sundays in the famous Shogun sunsets. Ther is no mistake here. It is not for the masses, it is for sophisticated people. Great food, great music.

I am crazy about sushis and produce my own, even in Luanda. In case I am too lazy or not able to find (affordable) fresh fishes, I directly focus on Switch (Epic Sana) but... with the AC at max, I prefer to join Ilha and have any at Shogun. (Very) Expensive, not much to eat, poor ambiance inside but great... More

For those who enjoy good food in a paradisiacal setting, this is the best places to eat in Luanda. Despite an unsatisfactory table service the food is very good and the environment, particularly at night, is excellent. We join her beautiful decor though barely functional and we have the almost perfect scenario. With a few tweaks could become one of... More

Let's face it, Angola is a very expensive country, and that will tend your opinion to be a little negative in respect of service quality. That being said, Shogun is a place in a marvelous location, with a beach club included. The food is acceptable, and the main value is the venue itself. I recomend having the cheapest option in...
