Food - Very Good !

I've been eating often at Inagiku (before the renovation) a couple of times already and liked the ambiance and food quality. It's the first time this May 2015 that I've tried dinner at the newly renovated Inagiku. Food quality and service is still fantastic just as always. The only minor negative... read more

Inagiku is the Japanese restaurant at the Makati ShangriLa. I had both dinner and lunch there; the set lunch was definetely better value. Good variety/choices and each set came with full set of soup, appetizers and dessert. Food was delicious and presented beautifully in bento boxes. The restaurant was bright and open and staff was friendly yet professional.

I've been visiting this restaurant for many months now since it reopened after a 5month renovation. I'm not a fan of Japanese cuisine but when I tried dining in Inagiku, everything completely changed. I love their Sushi and Sashimi selections. I'm always craving for their Sukiyaki and Teppanyaki. Overall this place doesn't just offer great food, it also has the... More

It's a bit expensive, it's in the middle of the commercial hub of Manila, but delights in Japanese dishes simply cannot be substituted! With a famous chef in tow, even to the point of greeting you in its front doorsteps (when he's not too busy in the kitchen!), plus a staff you wouldn't have any complaints about, it's one of...

The food is well prepared using very good ingredients. There are adequate choices to select from. The service is very good. The taste and texture of the food is remarkable. But be prepared to pay more for the experience.

Usual destination in Manila is the Makati Shangri La in Makati, a real place to have high class food. Inagiku is my favorite, since last time I was here th place has been renewed and made roomier. As usual the hostess at the entrance welcome you warmly and escort to your table, you have a choice of tables, teppan and... More

Had a family reunion over the long holiday break and tried the Japanese buffet at Inagiku in Shangrila Makati Hotel. The place was well lighted and spacious and relatively full on that day we had their lunch buffet. Went and tried a little of everything from their sushi/sashimi corner to the main course and sukiyaki and tempura areas. Staff was... More

Good food but a bit expensive. They have private rooms for small group. Clean and nice staff. Recommended for business dinners.

Went with high exceptions, unfortunately left disappointing, the food was just OK not bad but not great, took almost 40 mins to bring a seaweed salad, imagine how long took for the rest, in my opinion over priced.
