Authentic Japanese Cuisine and Excellent sushi

We ate here on the first night of our stay in KL and thought the restaurant excellent. As the menu is so varied and we struggled to choose, we opted for one of the set menus that included sashimi and teppanyaki (seafood). We really wanted to try some of the sushi signature dishes so we added... read more

We've been to both Nadaman restaurants in Hong Kong and this is admittedly not one of their better ones in the world. Perhaps it was because it was a buffet lunch rather than an a la carte menu on Sundays? But it seemed that everything was short of what I would expect from a Shangri-la hotel restaurant. Very average food... More

Excellent food by far the best Japanese restaurant in town. The meguro (Tuna) Saschimi was outstanding. I lived two years in Japan I have hardly eaten that kind of quality outside of Japan. "Arigato Oishi des!!"

Warm greeting from the staff, walk through awesome wine and sake cellar. You can watch live Sashimi, Teppanyaki, Grilled and Tempura cooking. Start with sashimi with Uni that melt in your mouth accompany with cold shirataki sake. Foie gras chawan mushi with seafood tempura. Grilled mixed seafood with Australian waygu and Niku Udon is MUST TRY! Will be back soon!

When we stayed at the Shangri La we had dinner at Zipangu and enjoyed the thin-sliced grilled Australian Wagyu beef set. What a feast! The sashimi were delicious and beautifully arranged (see our profile picture!), the beef tender and juicy (maybe a tiny bit overcooked but that's the way my wife likes it) and wonderful sesame ice cream with red...

Went there during weekend for the Japanese buffet. The food was really fresh and a lot of choices. Especially like their desert and teppanyaki section Will come back again for their Japanese buffet! By the way, make sure you make a reservation first

The restaurant has been at the KL Shangrila for years and has proven to be one of the more dependable Japanese Restaurants in town. Prices can be a bit steep but the staple Japanese food items like sushi, sashimi,teppan etc are usually well made and fresh.

great interior with tasty Japanese food makes it one of the best in KL. my host Firdous knows it all. A wide range of sake as well as large number of different sashi and shushi at premium price makes a positive experiance. Did not enjoy tapanyaki much.

A very nice Japanese restaurant in terms of 'decor' and ambience. Serve superb Japanese food as well. Zipangu is in a different leaque, high class Jap. fine dining ! Unless you're a Maybank Elite credit card holder ... it is a little pricey ...though ?
