Enjoyed this beautiful extensive buffet twice, an amazing array of asian and western foods fresh and cooked to order. Could have stayed all day. Wonderful.

"Well worth a visit” A really good venue for a relaxed meal with lots of Japanese dishes. The Asian-fusion works with excellent flavours and plenty of choice. Everything we tried was a success - the best oysters,prawns, scallops,mussells and other fresh seafood you can eat. There was a choice of shashimi ,shushi, teppanyakki, miso soup, ramen noodles,fish cooked in different... More

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

We had dinner with friends to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant is modern, minimalist, nice decorated with water features, garden and a walk thru cellar. The kitchen is the star of the place They accommodate our group ( 9 ) in a nice private room. The server was very professional and answered all our questions. The restaurant has different set...

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
