From a specially-commissioned cooking line consisting of a wood oven, hydraulic grill, rotisserie and customised yakitori pit, the element of fire speaks through simply seasoned, seared meats and vegetables.
The menu covers raw to cooked, with yakitori, noodles, dumplings, bao, robata grilled and spit roasted meats.
Our bar and kitchen operates all day. From lunch, to snacks with afternoon sakes, and right into the night.
Fantastic! Service was excellent and the food was unbelievably great.
Friendly, quick and knowledgeable staff, great fresh, tasty food!
A most enjoyable experience. Great service and food was delicious
Really good customer service, thanks for a great night x
Amazing atmosphere, service and the food is just the best!! Highly recommend!!
One of my favourite restaurants. My friend is a chef with a restaurant in Tokyo and had never eaten here. We decided in the lunch time tasting menu. The first four small plates were great but we were a little disappointed with the last two. Cabbage and chicken just aren’t that exciting....but that’s a personal opinion. The kingfish, edamame, bonito, is still a giant hit. Thanks for a great lunch.
Top notch across the board; outstanding food, service, music and fit-out. Will be back soon!
Do the Gochiso menu if you go. It's a little pricey (about $75pp), but worth it. You get between 7-8 different dishes, each one as unique as the one before it. And it runs the gamut, from seafood to meat, to veggies. All delicious. We've gone everytime we've visited Adelaide!
Food is OK but pricey. But what makes me really uncomfortable is that the chef tastes every dish with the SAME spoon without clean it and he even licks the spoon sometimes.
Thanks that we ordered dumplings which he was not able to taste. Won’t be there again.
What a restaurant, what an experience! The food was an absolute delight, the chef is a master!
Food is amazing in terms of presentation and flavours. We are a group of three and four dishes are perfect. Will come back for sure!
Apart from one completely disinterested and rude staff member attending our table it was an excellent night. Good venue and outstanding food .
Always a great night! Staff are excellent and the menu changes enough to keep it variable but old favs remain.
It is noisy and busy and hot with the open kitchen and it is great because of it
Every time we go to Adelaide we make sure to book a dinner here
Interesting take on Japanese food with good presentation. Delicate flavours and interesting menu. Staff were attentive but not intrusive
Contemporary delicious food. Inspiring creations. Exceptional service. Will be a regular here!
Delicious, and loved the open kitchen. I'll be back again soon.
An interesting lunch and comparison to my previous visit (Saturday dinner) was quite a dramatic difference - lunch was subdued whereas the dinner was noisy and "busy". Despite the business and noise we enjoyed the dinner more
Fusion , superb superior standard
Nice food but it was overpriced with small portion sizes. They had run out of multiple items on both the food and drinks menus when we were there which was disappointing.
Dumplings were still frozen in the middle. Service was warm, but I don't think this place lives up to the hype. Would rather go elsewhere for a special night out.
Fantastic Food! Great Wines! Wonderful Night! - Thank you
Most amazing food I have ever eaten in my life. Had the service to go with it, everyone there made it not just somewhere to eat but a proper experience. Highly recommended, also recommended sitting facing the kitchen when you go. 10/10, thanks Shobosho.
Incredible food and ambiance, great staff... and did I mention the food!? So good!
Was devo that they had sold out of a couple things but this place gets better and better every time.
Incredible food ... and the chef “show” whilst sitting at the kitchen pass was wonderful.
All the food was delicious - we even asked for some spoons to finish off that sauces!
The food was really delicious. Especially loved the tartare. Good service. However was a bit on the pricey side. I would definitely recommend still though. We had a booth which was great especially when your sharing, perfect for 4. I will definitely be back.
Great food friendly staff. Flavours of food always beautifully balanced, best kale dish ever.
Dined at Shobosho with my hubby for my birthday dinner. Did not disappoint. Food was incredible, so much flavour packed into every dish. If we had an edible vessel to mop up the sauces from the plates I am sure they would have gone back to the kitchen clean as a whistle. Great atmosphere too. We will be back!
As usual fantastic food
Very innovative and tasty
The half roast chicken is a star
Love the restaurant
We went to Shobosho for a quick dinner before a show. Our dinner reservation was for 5pm and even at such an early time it was busy! The service was quick and attentive. We loved the different flavours each dish had to offer. We ordered 3 entrees and 1 main to share between two. Perfect serving sizes and a great drinks list to match. We thought the price was okay for us however could teeter on the more expensive side for other people.
Food amazing ! Definitely go i ng back.
Venue is very cool.
Awesome!! Would definitely come back, the staff were all fantastic!
This was our first visit to Shoboshu. We chose the Chef's 5 course degustation menu and it was brilliant. The Leek dish and the omelette were a standout!
always a great meal - loved the fried rice and the lamb in particular! So full no need for dinner....
Warm and inviting atmosphere. Modern, delicious Japanese food prepared with love and detail. Plenty of dishes to choose from and and very helpful service.
The food here is great - very interesting, made for sharing so you can taste lots of things. Fairly noisy with older people!
Great food. We felt uncomfortable to have waiters whispering multiple times, amongst themselves while taking our order and then running after us twice, in the street and then at Maybe May, assuming that we didn't pay for our meals. Great food and atmosphere outside of this.
This is the 2nd time that we have been to this wonderful restaurant and we absolutely love the food.
This was as special event with Clayton Wells of Automata Restaurant in Sydney. The ambiance and food and the dynamic of this foodie heaven is a must for anyone that lives and breathes food!
Perfect staff, perfect food, perfect, fun, friendly service. I took my husband in for his 40th birthday on Saturday and we were blown away with every aspect. Amazing.
