Only my second time ever having teppan. The chef put on a good show and the food was really good. My steak was melt-in-your-mouth tender. I subtracted a star because of the horrid techno music the chef flips on and off during the show

Shogun Restaurant in Eastern Pasadena offers a delightful, and entertaining dining experience. With family-style seating, the atmosphere is very social and comfortable, while the chef prepares your dinner at your table. The chicken, steak and shrimp dishes were all delicious, and prepared as you watch. Overall, Highly Recommended!

This is a very good dinner stop if you want some culinary entertainment to go along with the food. The grill chefs are great with our kids, patient and helpful, and the all in all a very nice special occasion spot.

I don't think Shogun is as good as it used to be but I still enjoy it it. We always eat at one of the teppan grill tables. I think the heat of the grill really sears I the flavor. My usual is the steak and chicken combo. My wife always gets the filet mignon. Dinners come with a salad,... More

We go to this Japanese restaurant, where the food is cooked at your table, each time that we visit Los Angelese, as it is the very favourite restaurant of two of my great nieces, and a main part of my Californian family. I have always gone along with it, and thought it pretty good, as part of what my nieces... More

Went and took a family member there for their birthday last night...we chose the Teppan, where you sit at a "table" with other people and the food gets cooked right in front of you. The restaurant itself is nothing fancy, it's a bit noisy in there, but we had a fun time watching the chef prepare our chicken, lobster, scallops,... More

Shogun is noisy, hot (if you sit around the communal cooking area) but can be fun if you are feeling social and want your dinner to be part food and part performance. The steak, chicken and scallops are pretty good. Stick to Japanese beer for adult beverages, the bar is tiny and limited. I would imagine better places for sushi.

It was my oldest birthday and he wanted to go for the dinner and the show. Great food, cooked to order. The chef gave us a great show. Just make sure if you don't want to wait make a reservation

Went to the restaurant because friend wants something different and passed by this place so many times because it's located next to my local Trader Joe's. I know their specialty is the Teppan Chef theatre when the chef entertained you with his knife skills, but for now I opted for the sit down dinner.first impression, I think they can benefit... More

Haven't been here in a while but seems things may have changed. They were short staffed and a host was serving food on the side with the Sushi bar. The waiter came by and I had to stop him to get drinks which were never refilled. The food also seemed to have changed. I am hoping that it was simply... More
