Excellent Japanese Food

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 :-)

One of the best Japanese restaurant I have been while traveling. I ordered grilled cod fish in Teritaki sauce with plain rice and steamed egg. 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

One of the most amazing Japanese restaurants I have ever been to. The service when I walked in was extremely friendly and inviting. I was there by myself and they treated me like royalty. Being my first time here I took a recommendation from my server. Simple dinner of spicy tuna roll, fish and mixed Japanese vegetables. Highly recommend and... More

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 comment from me is that the lighting now seems... 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
