I've been a little wary of exploring much more than sushi to be honest apart from Nobu in London a decade ago. So this was a real eye opener. The menu is not too bewildering and we were guided through it by the staff . The most delicious sushi role followed and then an amazing foie gras and duck dish... More

We had dinner there last night where we ordered their Australian Wagyu Beef Steak Set. We also added a serving of the Deep Fried Softshell Crab Roll, that was the highlight of the dinner. It was nothing wrong, but when you pay this kind of money you have higher expectations of the quality of the fish, meat and more attention... More

I was here for dining on 18 Oct 2015, it was a quiet Sunday night with 2 3 table occupied only. The service was a bit slow that night, our expectation for 5 star restaurant is at least we dont have to ask for green tea refill ourselves. Other than that we were satisfied with the food.

Zipangu is a mid range hotel Japanese restaurant located in shangrila hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Having said that, zipangu serves really fresh sashimi, especially the hotate and yellow tail when available. Staff here are friendly and knowledgeable. Service is excellent, living up to shangrila's name

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 those onto our overall... 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!
