This Japanese restaurant had a very nice ambience and a pleasant staff which is consistent with the Shangri La offering. From the fresh Honey Dew I ordered to the Sushi platter the food tasted really good. The setting was very nice and the staff was very courteous and knew the menu well enough to give suggestions.

You enter the restaurant and instantly love the ambience and the decor of the place. One walks in through a huge wine/ sake cellar and soon you are in this elegant speciality restaurant. We opted for the set menu and was delighted by each course that was served. The sashimi was perfect, so was the main course - wagyu beef... More

Had a business dinner here and was most impressed ! It's of the quality one expects in a 5* Hotel like the Shangri-La. First of all, the atmosphere is very zen, a lovely lovely eating space. Secondly, the quality of service and attention to detail is exemplary. Thirdly, the range and quality of food is fabulous, no disappointments. It ain't... More

Food was nice but not the BEST.

I called it 8/10 for food but service was okay. If I did not... More

I was lucky to be invited by my friends to try out Japanese Food in Zipangu, Shangri-La KL. Everything was so good from the ambiance, to the service and to the menu. I was happy at the beginning but left with lots of disappointment. What's wrong the food? The Sashimi is good. But my friends and I was so disappointed... More

Japanese restaurant located in the Shangra-la KL. Nice setting for a business lunch. I took four clients and the bill came to around US$250.00 with no drinks. Set menu's were good quality and some reasonably priced. We ordered 3 x mini-Sashimi and mini-tempura which added a good chunk to the bill, if I went again I would skip these and... More

We were lucky to be invited for dinner at Zipangu Japanese restaurant down at Shangri La Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Usually Japanese food are quite similar everywhere you go but Zipangu had a twist in ambiance, freshness of ingredients and sensational blend of taste in every dish that was presented well. I love the setting of an open kitchen where you... More

This is the best Japanese restaurant we've ever been to. We had dinner at Zipangu twice in a week as we were so delighted with that restaurant that we couldn't dare to pick another Japanese restaurant in town. This is a design restaurant realized by the Tokyo-based firm Super Potato, but ambience is stunning without being pretentious. The entrance is... More

Excellent Japanese Restaurant situated in the Shangri La Hotel. The menu was varied and all the dishes we tried were well presented and delicious, the set Teppanyaki Course option provided a particularly good variety of dishes. We were made to feel most welcome and the staff were very attentive. A little pricey but definitely worth a visit if you like... More

Where do I start? I went to the Japanese restaurant at the Shangri-la where I was staying because I really disliked the food at the coffee shop at the same hotel. I was so happy that I would miss breakfast (which was at the coffee shop) so that I could eat an early lunch at Zipangu. The grilled cod is... More
