I still remember my awful experience with Shogun 3 years ago. But when I heard they have revamped the menu and restructured their outlets to focus only on two main outlets--- Sunway Pyramid and 1Utama, I'm sure things have definitely improved and I should make a visit there!
The talented chefs behind this brand have combined the best of Japanese dishes with quintessential local cuisine to present a spread that would cater to everyone's tastebuds.
outlet that can fit up to 600 pax. There are also 2 VIP rooms to accommodate up to 120 pax during weddings, birthday, full moon, reunions and corporate functions.
One should not miss the staple Japanese sushi rolls that boasts a delightful combination of chopped tuna belly, crabstick meat, salmon, fish roe and cucumber in the beautifully presented maki, temaki, nigiri and gunkan-maki sushi.
Over at the buffet counters, one finds dainty treats like Sashimi Moriawase, whose line up of raw seafood may include fresh Salmon, Butterfish, Tako (Diced Octopus) and Maguro (Tuna). Shogun serves only premium Norwegian salmon which is air-flown twice a week to the outlets to maintain the freshness and quality.

As your stomach is layered with the starters, perhaps this would be the perfect time to go for the main course. My favourite here always goes to the huge Lamb Shank, Agedashi Tofu and Grilled Salmon.
Other Japanese flavours such as Agemono and Yakimono grilled offerings, Karaage fried items, Shabu Shabu steamboat as well as Ramen and Soba noodles promise a satisfying dining experience even for those who may not quite fancy seafood. As I love my meals to be freshly cooked ala minute, the wide variety of Teppanyaki dishes lures me.
Don't leave out the delicious Korean BBQ offerings to satisfy your carnivorous cravings! The marinated red meat and poultry would entice your palate with the amazingly succulent taste that pairs well with the homemade sauces and dips.
In keeping the menu fresh and exciting for customers, the restaurants add Thai Boat Noodles to the buffet menu! Now you can avoid the frustration of long queues at the popular boat noodle shacks in town, just head over to Shogun and enjoy the hot-savoury beefy broth loaded with silky glass noodles and, tender beef meat and fresh-tasting meatballs.
Of course, no buffet is complete without dessert and Shogun has something really good that wows the diners. Nearby, the dessert section offers various cakes, homemade pastries, fruit cocktails, juices, herbal drinks, a ice-shaving machine with colorful condiments, as well as half a dozen flavours of ice cream.
Apart from the local kuih, pudding and jelly, you may get to try homemade Thai desserts including the most sought-after Mango Sticky Rice and Red Ruby in Coconut Milk if you're lucky because the dessert menu runs on a daily rotation.
Love their Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcake here too, so light, fluffy and creamy!
Taking pride on its healthy Japanese cuisine, Shogun is set to raise the benchmark for Japanese buffets in town. Reservation is recommended to avoid disappointments.
1. Wide varieties. Quick services. Refillable buffet counters. Spacious area. In short, it's an amazing dining experience that I'd not expected!
2. It is still lacking of premium quality seafood, but overall acceptable for the crowd.
3. With the ongoing promotions for kids and senior citizens, Shogun is definitely a great family-oriented buffet restaurant in town that has gone to a greater extent to serve international buffet.
