Excellent Japanese

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.

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...

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.

Newly renovated Inagiku Restaurant. Good service and great ambiance. But the food was so-so. I ordered a set lunch with beef and prawns. I particularly didn't like the beef as it was a bit hard. Texture was not the same as the premium beef they previously served.

Inagiku offers some of the best Japanese dishes in the city - the sushi and the tepanyaki dishes are particularly good. The efficient service and its elegant Shangrila location make it great for business lunches.

Food was good, as you would expect from the Inagiku franchise. Nice sashimi, tasty spicy salmon handroll and good sushi. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow, maybe because of Friday night. It took 10 minutes for the menu to arrive at my table. And continued with that kinda pace. For the price you pay, nevertheless one would expect something better.... More
