I was all excited to dine here after we got a pretty good deal online with markdown prices. I'm not really a fan of Japanese food but since this is a buffet style, I guess why not join in the fun. After all, I can have all the time to munch down on my favorites.
We were seated at a dark corner which is quite hidden from the other but I don't really like. But it was fine since we were there just to eat. Shogun has a few buffet station and I wandered from one station to another choosing my food. I absolutely love tempura and took some but they were very oily and quite cold. It gave a yucky feeling and I shoved the dish over.
Honestly, the variety of food here are quite boring and ordinary. Nothing catches my eye as they're just decent. The food is so-so, doesn't worth the money you're paying for. Luckily, we paid less than half of the bill otherwise, it's just a total waste.
Make Sure You Bring A Big Appetite
It is not often you get to find a Japanese Buffet restaurant. I myself only know of these branches as I've been to both which at 1 Utama and Sunway Pyramid. The last time I went there was during the fasting month of 2011 with my foundation classmates. They wanted to break their fast there as well celebrate one of our classmate's birthday.
For about RM50, an all-you-can-eat is pretty good, you have your choices of sushi, noodle, rice, ice cream and plenty more. Although, depending on the time you go, the food may taste like they've been there for a long time but if you're lucky and manage to get your hands on the fresh ones then believe me, you'll feel that your money was well spent.
However, do take only what you can eat as they will be charging you for any food that is uneaten.
I am a member of Shogun myself. Whenever I dine over there, I pay approximately RM30. Honestly, I do not fancy Shogun. Not because I have been there often, in fact, I've only been there 4 times in the past year. That's because I don't think the food there is any good, at all!
The food there used to be alright. With choices like unagi, soft shell crabs and really worth-eating cuisines. Now, they do not serve Unagis anymore and the raw oysters are only limited to 2 per person! Not only that, I don't think the sashimi there is fresh. They don't give you nice parts and they are very small in size.
Not my place to fill up my tummy with buffet even though it is cheaper for me.
Get ready to be pampered by varieties of foods
You have to do booking or reservation in order to dine here. Usually you will find long queue when they are opened. Once you enter Shogun, grab a seat and you may start hunting for food. You will be spoilt by huge varieties of food from Japanese, Chinese, Western to local cuisine. You can grab a little on everything and try out at your seat or you can just aim for what you like. For my case, I aimed Salmon sashimi on the Japanese cuisine section, which normally emptied by hungry patrons within short period.
