Seafood is fresh and grade A, steak is fantastic, and sushi rolls and maki are one of the best in Makati. Definitely highly... read more

What can I say, this restaurants serves very fresh sashimi, delicious teppanyaki, and those rice rolls which I forgot the name but I could never forget how good it was- the latter was pricey but we still ordered seconds anyway.

i was smitten with a dinner i had last july. we were seated near the cook, so we had a ringside view of the preparation. i love the assorted seafood-the prawn heads were laden with fat and the gindara was milky and firm. the beef usuyaki was a head trip- a good one. although hefty, it was full of umami...

Inagiku at the Makati Shangri-la is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have visited outside Tokyo. Fish is always wonderfully fresh, service impeccable. Have eaten there many times, never disappointed. This time was for my daughters birthday, her favourite Japanese too. It's not cheap, but always excellent and well worth the price.

I was staying at the Shangrila and was too tired to venture out after a long day. I asked if the restaurant could serve vegetarian food and they obliged. The Manager came to me and offered her recommendations and also gave me a separate Vegetarian menu. She also told me that if I wanted to try more dishes she could... More

Excellent Japanese food and good service but a bit on the pricey side. The bento box meals are the best value. Good location for business lunches in Makati.

Totally spoilt for choice. There are the different counters where you can chose to sit at depending on the type of Japanese food you desire. Having said that, we had no problem ordering across the menu. It was a business dinner, otherwise do note that this is Shangri-La standard and price :-)

The Fish was very nice and fresh, steamed egg has Unami, salmon and scallop which is very nice and tasty. The waiter told me I need to wait for 25 mins to get the steamed... More
