I've heard good things about their aburi but you'll never really appreciate it until you've tasted it. Being in Makati Shang, the place is pricey as expected. Dinner for 2 was at an P8K tab with grilled fish, aburi and a set meal.

Perfect place for our family Christmas celebration. Food was excellent. Downside, coffee was not included with the buffet. We ordered coffee and 1 order costs 600 pesos!!! Well, no complaints as the food served was good. Just hoping that in the future, include coffee in the buffet.

We have been going to inagiku for almost a decade now every Christmas and as the years pass, the prices go up, but the quality is slowly declining. There used to be sea bass, now there's none The tempura used to taste so good.. Now, it tastes very average The selection is getting less and you can tell the difference... More

From end to end, this was a perfect experience. The sesame sauce on the boiled spinach was delicious. Grilled salmon was perfectly prepared. Great service, great environment. 5 stars!

My friends and I tried out their lunch buffet and were very impressed with the different dishes that were offered. Their sushi and sashimi were so intricately prepared and were presented so nicely. The hot kitchen dishes with tempura and teppanyaki items were flavorful and well seasoned. I can't wait to go back again and try their ala carte menu.

As it was New Year's Eve, the only thing on offer was buffet dinner but the spread and selection was fantastic. The food was fresh and of good quality - will not disappoint. Maybe pricey for locals but the cost is on par with any Western restaurants. This is not a draw back if you are used to paying for... More

You'll feel at home in Makati Shangri-La's very own Japanese restaurant. Even the slightly long walk going in gives you the sense of something to look forward to...and the inside doesn't disappoint! Minimalist in style, the ambience gives an air of being genuinely Japanese. The whole restaurant looks nice in the daylight, with the appearance of being bright and clean.... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants here in Manila. The fresh seafood is the main highlight of the restaurant, whether cooked or served raw as sashimi or sushi. It's quite pricey, but worth it considering the quality of the food they serve. The buffet is also worth it for those who love to eat a lot.

This a Japanese restaurant at Makati Shangri-la. If you want Japanese buffet, this is the place to go. The wide selection of dishes and top quality meats and seafood differentiate this place from other Japanese buffets. Although there are a lot of Japanese restos in Manila, most of them go for quantity rather than quality. Here, they serve really fresh... More
