About Us

Exquisite cuisine fused with local charm

That's what Shogun brings to Delmar and the Capital Region. Delectable sushi, savory entrees, and a full bar are complemented by superior service at this favorite area restaurant, established founded in 2009. Over the past decade, diners have come to expect only the best each time they enjoy a meal at Shogun. If there's one thing more important to the Shogun team than serving Japan's finest flavors, it's making their guests feel like emperors every time they visit.

Our Story

Founded by entrepreneur Frank Lee, who also owns the sister Shogun location and Rain Modern Chinese in Albany, Shogun of Delmar is now owned and operated by longtime employee Elisa Lee Arteche along with her husband Jose Kishimoto Arteche. With Jose as a classically trained executive chef and Elisa as the general manager, together the local couple are carrying on the Shogun tradition that locals love with a few twists of their own.

Each month, Shogun of Delmar offers different, creative specials featuring new and seasonal ingredients that are always enticing customers to try something new. Additionally, visitors can chose from the many tried and true recipes on Shogun’s original menu, including traditional Japanese dishes such as hibachi and udon noodles, delicious pan-Asian options like sesame chicken and fried rice and, of course, the ever-popular sushi and sashimi.

Sushi-lovers must try the tasty Golden Dream Roll, made with spicy crunchy tuna and avocado, then topped with tempura shrimp and special sauces. The contrast of favors and textures in this roll have made it the menu’s long lasting top seller. A close second is the signature Delmar Roll, which features salmon, eel, avocado and crunchies wrapped in soy paper and finished with special sauces. Shogun prides itself on artfully presenting “rolls that really work” - and that keep customers coming back again and again! In addition to the food, exceptional service is what sets Shogun apart from the rest. “We make it a point to really get to know our customers,” Elisa said. “Over the past 10 years we’ve really had the opportunity to develop a relationship with many of them.”

Looking ahead, the Arteche's goal for the future of Shogun is maintaining that high level of service and continuing serving quality cuisine, while keeping it fresh with new, innovative specials, Elisa said. “It’s really focusing on what we do best.”

As Shogun celebrates the milestone of its 10th anniversary in 2019, the staff is especially appreciative of its supportive clientele that have helped make this restaurant endeavor such a success. “To still maintain what we can do for 10 years is incredible,” Elisa said. “We’re just truly grateful.”
