Had dinner here with a friend, one night that we couldn't decide where to eat 🙃 Since I haven't dined at Mangetsu yet and we were in the area, craving for Japanese food, we decided to give it a try.

Mangetsu's ambiance is very relaxing. Low lights, wooden chairs, with bottles of sake/wine adorning the walls.

Their menu options can be quite overwhelming as there were so many to choose from. Fortunately the food items were categorized accordingly into fish, chicken, sashimi plate, beef, etc. I ordered Gyudon while my friend got the Uni Sushi and the Spicy Tuna Maki.

The serving size of my food can honestly be enough for 2 people, but I enjoyed it so much that I was able to finish it 128513 I also had the chance on the Uni, which was my first time to taste--it had a very unique flavor, like experiencing a taste of the sea. Not one of my favorites though, but appreciated the freshness of the food and intricate presentation.

Customer service was fine, can be warmer. At least they don't shout "IRASSHAIMASE!!!" to welcome customers.

One watchout--parking is quite difficult and very tight along Jupiter, especially during dinner time. Fortunately, they allot a slot for customers in nearby Security Bank.

Overall, loved the dining experience, food presentation and quality and ambiance of this memorable place 128522 Will definitely be back! 128077🏼

[Disclaimer: Late post.]

I’ve been eying to visit Mangetsu for quite some time and since some of my friends and I finally found a date where we’re all free, I took it as a reason for us to all go to that Japanese restaurant.

Konnichiwa, Mangetsu!

I was a bit scared that we might not have seats given we're meeting on a Saturday so I made sure to reserve a table for 6 the day before. I was expecting a full house but there were still a few tables left vacant when we arrived.

I love that they welcomed me by first name. It made me feel like a regular customer. 128518

It took us quite some time to decide on what to order as there were a lot to choose from. I noticed that they even have a menu for cheese dishes! *Calling all cheese lovers!*

After a few more minutes, we finally ordered the following: Deep-Fried Breaded Prawns (PHP490), Karaage Fried Chicken Thighs (PHP380), Cheese Gyoza (PHP320), Salmon Sashimi (PHP430), California Maki (PHP250/wrap roll, PHP150/hand roll), and Shoyu Ramen (PHP230).

First served was the salmon sashimi. I was impressed with how charming the sashimi was plated. It sure made my non-sashimi eating friends try it out and eventually love the fresh salmon cuts.

The California maki cuts were pretty big and I loooove the fresh roe.

The cheese gyoza on the other hand didn’t really taste like cheese. Or perhaps they made use of cheese that is rather bland in flavor. Nonetheless, it was a bit chewy and it reminded me of mozzarella.

The Karaage fried chicken was a hit! It was a crowd favorite as the skin was crunchy yet the meat inside was tender and juicy. Adding those three types of salt made this dish even more superb. Plus the different colors made it so enticing to eat.

The deep-fried breaded prawns were great too as they made use of bread crumbs than the typical flour. It added crisp and more texture. The prawns used were huge too so there won’t be a bite with just breading.

The shoyu ramen on the other hand was my least favorite. The soup was darker than what I am used to and it was a bit saltier as well. I like my shoyu ramen salty yet slightly sweet but this one isn’t it.

Overall, the dining experience was great. I love how the dishes were served and it sure made us hungrier each time a plate is served. I’ll definitely try the other dishes next time such as the cold noodles and the chicken skewers.

Another Sunday dinner @ Jupiter St. In Makati. Based on my reading about Mangetsu, their Japanese Chef comes from Japanese tradition of exclusive dining called "Ryotei". The place has casual wooden chairs, well lit, Japanese sake all over the place and love their neat interiors.

Their menu exhibits how intensive their dishes were prepared, that makes it interesting. Since they are some kind of fusion, some dishes are not familiar to me, so my companions call the shots. Honestly, they did a pretty job of ordering.

127775For appetizer:
salmon sashimi- its the usual sashimi but love the presentation128077🏻.
spicy tuna sashimi,- red & spicy looking but just enough when tasted. this one is covered by Korean chili bean paste. A must try.

127775main dishes:
Sea urchin omelette- served in thick chicken broth sauce. Rice is a must for this dish. I love sea urchin the first time I tasted it fresh and cold. So i have no reservations tasting it again, this time it is cooked and tasty.

Tofu gratin- another cheese experience ( last week is cheese + ramen in Mitsuyado Sei-men). Who would have thought cheese and tofu for a combo. ?It is served hot, tofu becomes flavorful as its covered by motzarella cheese.

Beef steak in ponzu butter sauce- beef cooked in medium well, cut into thin strips. Ponzu butter sauce compliments the steak. This dish is also served with fried potatoes. (Excess cheese in tofu gratin serves as a dip to the potatoes.. Its good!)

127775 Nigori Sake- best sake i tasted so far. This sake is cloudy or its colored white. Its sweet and mild compared with other sake

For someone looking for Japanese menu with a twist, this place is highly recommended. Most dishes are flavorful, with sauce and other spices they add to traditional Japanese dishes we often ordered. Prices are reasonable, serving is enough and servers are attentive.

I went here for lunch with my colleagues. The interiors were really nice and it has the serenity of a japanese restaurant (well what do I know about legit Japanese restaurants...).

SPICY CHICKEN KARAAGE - 110881108811088
Since I saw a lot of good reviews about the Chicken Karaage, I tried the next best thing available on the Lunch Menu, their Spicy Chicken Karaage. First of all, their servings are HUGE. A tray of miso soup, rice, chicken karaage, and 2 more sides surprised me. Their Karaage was okay... It wasn't outstanding. It was also a bit soggy and I didn't like the texture that much. I didn't even finish the meal because it was a huge serving and I didn't like it enough to finish it.

Had lunch here with family last Sunday to celebrate in advance my wife's birthday.
Place has a nice ambiance and the design was modern and not the traditional japanese restaurant look and feel.
Food was good, and since it's a fusion kind of restaurant, the plating was a lot different compared to other japanese restos.
I particularly loved their sukiyaki. Beef was so tender and the soup had the perfect sweetness IM0. But P190 for the extra soup was too much I think.
Their five kinds sushi plate was good, esp the uni (sea urchin).
I didn't like their big california rolls though. Suggest they make it smaller, just the way a maki roll should be.

My family used to come here quite frequently last year until we discovered other places where parking is easier and we don't have to call ahead for a reservation. Recently, I met up with HS friends and we decided to get a private room upstairs as the ground level dining area can get quite loud. Besides, we tend to get carried away in our conversations and I suppose it can be scary for those who don't know us and were hoping to dine in peace. We were told in advance that there's a minimum consumable of P650 (I think) per person for a private room for dinner. Initially, we thought that would be easy to reach, but we fell a little bit short. Thankfully, management decided to waive the balance. I think they just wanted us to leave because we once again stayed til past closing (chairs were already on the tables when we went out of our room).

We had the following:

1. Chicken karaage with 3 kinds of salt. They're practically known for this. The chicken was juicy and flavorful and it's fun sprinkling different kinds of salt on it.

2. 5 varieties of sashimi. These were really fresh!

3. California maki. I liked this. Can't really say much because it is really just a california maki.

4. Tofu gratin. Conceptually, I loved it. But in reality, it's too rich. I think I only had about 1.5 serving of this.

5. Beef salad rolls. I remember getting half a roll, but it didn't make an impression. I really can't remember how this tasted.

6. Char-grilled prawns tempura. It's ok, but I'm not really a fan of tempura.

7. Deep fried marinated tuna. I found this a bit dry.

All in all, it was an enjoyable dinner. Our server was attentive and would appear soon after we pressed the button. Thinking we should come back more often.

I liked the ambiance and the over all feel of this restaurant. It was a nice venue to celebrate and catch up with family and friends.

Good japanese food with some dishes made with a twist! The blanched tuna with calamansi and salt allows you to savor the freshness of the raw fish meat without that masking taste of kikoman. It's a nice experience and a must try!

The place is really clean
Their toilet on the second floor is also clean ;)
Their gyudon (simmered beef) is my all time favorite.
Their serving is generous
Most days, majority of their diners are japanese nationals :)
