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

I enjoyed the food here and I opted for the Teppanyaki and the tempura and sushi. Service was excellent and the food was very nice. Slightly expensive but a very good meal.

They have my most favorite dish in the world! If I were to be given a last meal, it would be Inagiku's Aburi Goten. Amazing dish!!!

As always my favorite restaurant has delivered the best buffet for a Sunday lunch. The wide spread of excellent choices pleases the palette with each and every bite. The service is beyond compare. Dining manager was sensitive enough to offer a change of table for a quiet and relaxing lunch. A special touch that makes this restaurant a bar above... More

Went with my 5yr old for lunch and sat at the teppanyaki counter. Chef is very attentive and always ready to answer my ques on my order. I ordered the set teppanyaki at a very reasonable pricing of PHP 1500++ It comes with two appetizers before the main course. My beef is well cooked, however my seafood are over cooked... More

Great sake, sushi, appetizers and beef. Nice view by window of waterfall garden. Expensive but worth the price.

Inagiku at Shangrila usually means excellent Japanese food and earth shattering prices. But not at this place. Both food and prices (comparing with Japanese restaurants in top tier hotels) are average. The restaurant is of a rectangular shape. So it is very open. If you are entertaining or with a date, may not be the best idea.
