Excellent food and friendly staff. The restaurant itself very simple, maybe time for a upgrade? This place was a great experience and me and my girlfriend truly enjoyed our visit.

Port Douglas is so lucky to have a place like zipangu. It's has awesome authentic Japanese food. Try the tempura prawn sushi rolls or grab karagai bowl.

Had an amazing evening last night at this relaxed, 5Star quality food, cafe style dinning. I loved the staff and was impressed what this little shop produces. I'll be back, again and again. Also BEST miso soup EVER.

We ordered 2 chick terriyaki, 1 prawn tempura, 1 chick kasu, 1 agadeshi, 1 fish cake for takeaway. It took over 45min to complete order. Worst is each dish came out one by one, so the first dish that came (rice) would have been sitting on counter for over 45min. Next thing that came out was fish cake, and sat on counter for about 25min. By the time the prawn tempura came out 45min later, rice and fish cake were lukewarm!!! I actually requested the tempura be cancelled as I was sick waiting any longer, but I couldn't as I was told 'it just went in'. The prices were ridiculous, even for resort town standard. A bento box without rice averages $20. Large rice was $5, small rice $3. The fish cakes were terrible- rubbery and fake fish- the cheap artificial fish meat mixed with flour. All in all, terrible experience. Will never go back again.

The sushi here is good but if you just arrive expecting a short wait for some take away you will be disappointed, we waited 1 hour and 20 minutes last night, 23 May 2014. Most people seemed to wait at least an hour.
