Japanese food has always been our favorite and Jipan did meet our expectations.

For our Japanese feast we had Kani Salad ( which I really liked),California Maki ( big ones),Chicken Terriyaki which came with a bowl of soup,salad and rice,Beef Terriyaki ,Pork Katsu and Beef Terriyaki in Pita Bread ( their pita bread was so soft) with Fries.Hands up to their Beef Terriyaki in Pita Bread! It has a creamy,little bit tangy taste sauce which I really enjoyed.

Do come and visit Jipan if you want to "turn into a Japanese" mode.I'm sure you will love just like we did!

Today is my lucky day! I just got my Japan visa so me and my friend wanted to celebrate it. I've already tried their ramen and maki's few months ago, well it was kinda okay nothing fancy. Since there are limited coffee shops in Estancia(i've tried them all 128523), i wanted to try something new. i saw Jipan's pastries from afar and decided to come inside and check it out. My eyes were fixed at the yummy strawberrycake on display and my friend drooled over pineapple danish, so i ordered them with cafe americano. To my surprise, the straberry cake was sooooo good! I thought it was just another ordinary strawberry cake, but Oh my! It was the best strawberry cake i've tried! It was not so sweet(just as i wanted), moist and the strawberries on top are so fresh 100841008410084️. The icing was not overly sweet, the layered chiffon cake with tiny strawberry bits literally melted in my mouth, oh it was heaven! i will definitely come for that cake again...on my cheat day 128522 / The service was good, it was fast. the place was modest and clean too.

My sister and I loved their Monroe loaf bread so we decided to try their food other than the Monroe haha.

Location. It was a simple dining area with pastry display.

Staff. All of them are attentive and very professional. They looked like a great team that really look out for each other. They’re all spontaneous.

Food.

Dynamite Roll (P395), I thought that it was expensive but when they’ve served it, maan it was gigantic! It has ebi tempura, kani, tamago, cucumber, crunchy tempura bits (which is sooooo delicious) and kewpie. I am happy with the serving of this, also it was well presented and worth the price.

Agedashi Tofu (P145), fried tofu with dashi sauce. The sauce tasted like miso soup haha. The tofu was so light and delicious. I loved it.

Tuna Melt on thick toast (P175), tuna salad spread with cabbage, carrots and cheddar cheese. Their sandwiches are served with nori French fries. It was huge. The tuna salad tastes really good and the melted cheese is heavenly!

I never imagined that I would enjoy dining in Jipan. They’re not selling good pastries but also great food. Amazing!

Jipan has always been one of my favorite Japanese restos. I never get tired of their super delicious Dynamite Roll which makes me come back everytime I crave for Japanese food. But in my many trips to this place I have never tried their desserts because I didn't want to finish off my Japanese meal with Western flavor from their array of cakes and breads.

I tried their branch at Estancia recently and because I had so much time in my hands to just sit there with friends, we decided to try their Bananas Foster Jipan Perdu for dessert, their twist on the French classic Pain Perdu. This is made from their loaf bread in thick slices, cubed and soaked in custard and fried golden served with caramelized banana sauce with scoops of vanilla ice cream on the side. It was heavenly! And their serving was big enough for 3 people to share. We enjoyed this dessert so much that we started analyzing how it was done. It is just too nice not to share with family. So we ended up buying their thickly sliced bread so we can make our own versions at home. I think I came close but of course nothing beats the original. 128540. Next time I'll try their Strawberry Jipan Perdu.

One not so nice experience there though was their slow service. We waited to be served with water and their house tea for 20mins inspite of the many follow-ups. But their waiters were courteous enough to apologize each time and that made up for their slowness.128077...forgiven...

I am finally swearing off this place for its very very poor service! My colleague and I ordered California Maki and their curry thinking it should be very quick since lunch break is limited to an hour more to the fact that we cant even stay that long because of schedule anyway thus the decision to order what I have mentioned which took as 20minutes to arrive! So okay- california maki arrives! Fattest roll ever so can you imagine how you can much per slice?! I have literally choked when I tried swallowing the first piece so after three slices since I need to eat I gave up! On a side note since my colleague wanted to eat quickly the curry he ordered he requested a pair of spoon and fork and that one took three reminders for it to be given! Even the bill and take out nag took a while to arrive. PS this place was not even crazy busy so mo excuse and I dont think they were short of staff.Thus it is completely sayonara to this place!!

We first chanced upon this restaurant by accident in Makati only a couple of months back and it has become one of our go-tos for a quick Japanese fix while I'm sure it's not a top of mind restaurant for most people.

We absolutely love their Dynamite roll and Firedragon roll. Both are massive rolls of Japanese goodness that don't scrimp on ingredients. Both very fresh and filling thanks to the generous serving. They're a bit pricey at almost P400 and P500 respectively but definitely worth it.

We've tried their Spicy Tuna Salad, Chicken Karaage, Sashimi and Tempura as well. Nothing out of this world but they got the basics done.

The gem of our usual Jipan visit would be their Kouign Amman-- whether plain, mini caramel or mini mango. A bit pricey at under P75, P50 and P75 respectively but definitely worth it. We've also tried their Monroe loaf which is like a croissant loaf-- perfect for Ham and cheese sandwiches!

Over-all: definitely worth going back to with their pleasant staff and baby-friendly environment. It gets a bit too cold at Estancia though so bring a wrap or a jacket for your bubba.

Another restaurant that uses old ingredients. Got food poisoned here. Stay away from their tuna pizza and dynamite roll. Not fresh ingredients.

I cant pass up this chance to really complain to this restaurant.

I'm amazed by the size of this coffee jelly at such an affordable price! You really get to share with 2-3 or even 4! Served with milk and syrup. It's got really strong coffee flavor that made us request for more milk!

Wanna guess the price? I just hope |ooloo doesn't have this info in the menu yet! Haha 9996

Sampled some of their bread products and they were pretty good, soft and buttery bread, they didn't scrimp on the "palaman" and the toppings 128077128536

The Peach Danish was to die for 128525

My mom loves their Monroe bread, which she used to bring home a lot when she was working near their Makati branch...

I just saw their Estancia branch yesterday and I had to buy a loaf for my mom... It's expensive at P240+ for the big loaf, but the quality of the bread speaks for itself... It's very buttery and adding a bit more butter just makes it more luxurious!128522

Jipan's dishes were alright in terms of taste. Portions of the food was definitely for sharing like the sandwich we ordered. The somewhat unruly waiter suggested we check the flavors of the panna cota instead of sharing it. Eventually the dessert itself was unavailable. It was taxing trying to get the attention of the servers since they were just grouped together chitchatting. Refills and take outs took forever. Not a pleasant experience and the Dragon rolls rice was too thick compared to Senju's. Price of P812.73 maybe amenable for 2 persons, service just ruined its reputation.

Though food quality was okay (the Sukiyaki was superb!), the service could have been more attentive... And there could have been less mosquitos in the dining area... 128523

Jipan is one of the stores open here now and it's a welcome treat to see one coz of familiarity with its good products. The sweet potato cake is divine as well as this red bean filled mochi bread. More food shops seen to open here in this cute mall: The Wholesome Table, Burgers and Brewskies, among those I look forward too. 128522
