At Shōbōsho we blend smoke, steam, and fire. The ancient tradition of Japanese yakitori is combined with the finesse, skill & texture of all that is raw, cured, pickled and fermented.

Food lacked flavor. Might be what we ordered but the food looked better than what it tasted. The dumplings were delicious, and that's where it stopped. The crab udon and also garfish, though cooked well, lacked flavor.

The service and ambiance were great.

We absolutely loved our experience at shobosho and will definitely be back again. The service we received was excellent. The food was beautiful, the salt and vinegar chips Could have had more salt and vinegar on them but still delicious. The smoked leek was unusual and a good experience but would get again. The dumplings, noodles and pork main were all just amazing. Mocktails were such a good touch too.

It’s small and intimate, could be a date venue or a group of friends, very veraitile. It’s noisy, but not so much that you couldn’t hear or talk, just enough to make a real good vibe and energy.

It’s pricey, but it’s worth it for the experience. Small serves of most things to share, so you end up with a few things from the menu. Super helpful staff and we were more than happy to give a good tip.

Very happy to cater for vegan options too.

We were a little disappointed to be honest, tuna entree was underwhelming and very overpriced.

Spit roast chicken and snake Beans were delicious. The master stock/sauce on the chicken was next level.

Service was good considering the volume of customers. Atmosphere was good but really loud, hot and packed in like sardines.

overall we felt it was good but overpriced, paying for location with the lack of personal service, we could good similar food in any high end Asian restaurant around Adelaide, there are plenty!

Me and a group of friends ate at Shobosho on Friday night. We choose the $75 pp banquet. Food was absolutely delicious! Stand out for me was the sashimi. Plenty of food didn't go hungry. Our waitress was awesome and very accommodating as two of our friends had dietary requirements and they were able to cater to all our needs. Would definitely go back!

Amazing food service, very tasty and diverse range of menu options.
Fantastic to watch food prep and service in front of you.. open kitchen makes for interesting experience.
Head chef was awesome, cooking, prepping, teaching staff all at the same time and all with an audience...
Will be back for a Sando..

Have enjoyed eating here many times - but while it still mainly delivers on the food quality, I have to say the 'feed me' menu has failed to deliver in the quantity - such that you can still walk out feeling hungry. Why do this? Spending $200+ on a meal as we did shouldn't be such an experience. Raise your game!

First night out for a while and Shobosho came up trumps. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the spectacle and a little banter with the chef. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere was great. A real treat.

I have been wanting to go to Shobosho for a while and finally managed to have lunch there. The kitchen seemed super clean and organised and the staff appeared very focused. The food was great, liked the black sesame meringue that was unusual and very light.
