“Amazing Japanese food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Definitely one of the best Japanese meals we have ever, ever had - and we eat a lot of Japanese food. Superb fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. Stand outs were the Special oysters in Panko crumbs and the tempura prawns and well, it was all amazing. An unpretentious relaxed cafe style restaurant ohhhh and the sashimi scallop was INCREDIBLE !!! Will make it the first thing we do in Port Douglas next time we visit, not the last!

“Best Japanese in FNQ”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

This is the hidden gem of Port Douglas! Wonderful food, authentic Japanese, and excellent service. We eat here frequently and are always impressed. Meals are beautifully presented and consistently good. I cannot recommend Zipangu enough. The decor inside is sparse, but the lovely hostess and food more than make up for it!

“Wonderful sushi, a hidden gem!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stumbled across Zipangu at five to eight one night midweek and they were due to close at eight. The wonderful lady who worked there was more than happy to sit us a feed our starving bellies!
The food was exceptional. We had a sushi and sashimi platter and then a noodle dish (we were very hungry!) and it would outstanding and best of all, was very reasonably priced.

Would definitely have gone again if we had time!

“A great little spot”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Friendly helpful staff who make fresh, homemade gyozas on premise: what's not to love? Lunch menu is very limited, but everything is flavoursome and fresh. It looks unassuming, but that's what adds to the charm!
