Food quality is fresh , sashimi and tempuras are delicious . What's missing is unagi . For the price we pay , you would expect unagi too , disappointed on this one .

We come here for breakfast during our stay in shangri-la kuala lumpur. Food served from western foods, breads, local and asian food quite tasty. They prove quite a great variety choice of dishes. However place seems quite cramp and could not accomodate crowd. They seems did not provide fresh juice and the juice taste extremely sweet and very watery.

I have always favored Shang for its great food but I must say, they have just become very "vanilla" with Zipangu. Nothing special with the food and the lack of attentiveness from the staff was very un-Shang. They have been well overtaken by Tatsu Japanese Restaurant at the InterContinental KL. This is where I'll take my clients now. I hope... More

Had dinner here, we weren't very hungry so had a very simple meal yet the service provided was just as good as if we had ordered a thousand ringgit meal! The staff were politely friendly, knowledgeable, and able to upsell based on my partner's comments/likes. Kudos to the restaurant and training managers! Wish I had staff like these...

I have been to this place many times over a decade, but things have changed badly of late. Not for the best however. In a Japanese restaurant there is a must for the head Chef to be Japanese and if so, it wasn't obvious at all. Every aspect from food preparation, quality of ingredients, service discipline & making your meal... More

Favorite Japanese restaurant in town. Supreme sashimi is well worth the price. It melts in your mouth. Grilled mackerel was cooked just right and was off the bone.
