Love eating here by myself, 12/27/08 at 8:47 PM
I like to eat sushi alone so I can fully enjoy the experience. Shogun offers quick service at the bar, excellent food, and a pleasant atmosphere. I come away from the experience feeling diffuse satisfaction and warm appreciation for the chefs.
On the downish side, I sometimes wish that they would deal with the check as quickly as they deal with the order. I frequently wait longer for change than I did for the sushi.
The bathroom is okay (Omei sets the bar for bathrooms), but I'm not in love with handling a big key that every single other person who just used the facilities has handled.

I'm always happy to eat at Omei, and I'm always happy to recommend it to others. One of my best experiences there was the opportunity to order for a group of people who were unfamiliar with the menu. I recommend the broccoli with cashews, the lichee chicken, red oil dumplings, and the basil eggplant.
Omei has a flat service charge that can be off-putting, depending on your perspective. Ordering to-go does not get you out of the service charge.
For groups larger than 5 people, the tables are too large to talk to anyone but your most immediate neighbor, especially when the place is crowded with talkers. I think of this restaurant as better suited for more intimate meals.
The bathroom is one of the nicest restaurant bathrooms in Santa Cruz.
