Tried the Ebi Furai Curry at Zipang (yes I came back with some friends). As you can see, the prawns were huge. The curry consistency and texture were spot on and the flavor was just right.

The ebi tempura, sukiyaki and Japanese fried rice were among the best I tasted here in Manila. The prices were quite reasonable too.

However, the service was quite slow. It took them 30 minutes to serve one order of mixed sashimi, then another 20 minutes to serve the other dishes. I don't know if it was due to them being understaffed during the holidays or some other reason.

I hope they improve on this aspect.

Had dinner here w/ my dad and my kids and I have to say we really enjoyed the food here!

Pictured above is authentic Japanese Roast Beef (the owner's wife just came back from Japan and brought it with her). Thin slices of tender beef that you top w/ wasabi, grated radish and "sauce". This was an epic dish and only P250.00!

We ended up ordering sukiyaki, katsudon and a bunch of other items whose names escape me (sue me, I'm old) and they were all well above average!

Extreme value for great food. Two thumbs up!

The attention to detail didn't escape us.

The tiny origami shirt which held a few toothpicks were so adorable! They kindly gave us a couple more to bring home to my cousins.

We appreciated that the batter coating the agedashi tofu and vegetable tempura were spare but maintained these dishes' wonderful taste. You could tell what each tempura vegetable was, and the eggplant was cut to fan out very artistically. Kudos to the Japanese chef.

Reasonable prices help us look forward to trying out their other dishes.

I loved their chicken teriyaki. Although i just had a bite of it since it was the boyfriend's order. Got a bit shy to ask him for more. Hahha! The nikatsu was surprisingly good. I am not a fan of anything katsu, but it was served in a hot plate with a lot of sweet sauce and egg on top. I loved the sauce and couldnt get enough of it. I found the "Romen" so-so. It was supposed to be a more saucy yakisoba. But the tangy-ness of the sauce was a bit too much for me. Ended up dipping the noodles in the nikatsu sauce instead. Overall, i'd say it is an ok japanese place to visit if you're around the area. Price points are very reasonable. But i don't think it's good enough to drive all the way to quezon city from paranaque. Not too shabby for a hidden Japanese resto.:)

Good value teishoku meals prepared by a Japanese chef. Chirashi sushi was also fresh. And price was very reasonable. It isnt as good as cuisine in Japan but better than half of Japanese restaurants here in Manila like Omakase, Akira and Wafu.

Attended a lecture delievered by one of my colleagues... Went with friends and made new ones.

The place was simple but very clean, with ample seating and parking (if you count the ones in the nearby school)... We used the function room upstairs, which was spacious and conducive for a lecture. When we got there, tempura and tuna maki were already waiting for us. We were also served yakisoba... During the lecture, the Chicken karaage with pickled veggies and slaw was served... This is the dish I liked best. They also served the Nikatsu , which is like katsudon but doused in a soy based sauce. We were also served tea with our meal.

The food was okay tasting. I didnt get to sample a lot of the menu, but I'm not complaining... The service was fast and efficient... I can't say that it was the best Japanese food I've tasted, though there were a lot of rave reviews... All I can say is that it was a pleasant evening with not too memorable food (my bf and I were thinking the same thing). Not too sure about the price though.

Not too keen on repeating the experience...128513

Hidden gem in the area. Its near our place and would definitely go back! Serving was big and purely Japanese rice was used. Chef was a Japanese too. We would definitely go back!! Totally worth it!

We ordered agedashi tofu, buta kimchi, chicken kaarage, special chicken bento which the only difference was the chicken had a bigger portion. Everything was bland and the soup wasn't even served hot. The server wasn't competent enough to know the difference of the dishes.

Who would have thought that there's a hidden gem along 11th Jamboree?128523

Yes, there is, it's Zipang!

What's good here is the place. Since it's secluded from the crowded parts of the area, Morato and Timog, it's much easier to dine here. No long lines. No full parking.

There's nothing special about the place, just like your usual japanese resto. It has a loft but I don't recommend dining there, as it doesn't have it's own cooling system.

I ordered Nikatsu. It's deep fried pork cutlet in soy-based sauce topped with egg. It comes also with a salad and rice. It's like Katsudon but I must say, this one's on a different level.128523 It's served on a hot plate, which makes it very special. Also, before I get, this is all for only
Php 215.00! 128077 not bad, right?

Located amidst several houses so it's not easy to find. Food cooked by a legit Japanese Chef :) Food would have been tastier but I give this place 5 stars because of the very cheap prices.. Meals are less than 200 pesos. And the ambiance is nice and Japanese-ey haha. :)

Zipang is one of those hidden gems. I'm amazed this place isn't packed to the ceiling with customers.

The food is great - most authentic-tasting Karaage I had since leaving Japan (probably because the chef is Japanese) - and amazingly affordable compared to other Japanese restaurants: The 6pc Karaage a la carte is only P140, and for P190 you can have the Karaage set - the same 6 pcs plus rice, shredded cabbage, pickled vegetables, steamed vegetables and miso soup. That's value!

In addition to the Karaage set, my friend and I also had the Ebi Tempura maki, leaving us both full at only a little over P300. You also get free tea - very authentic Japanese restaurant.

The service goes above and beyond as well - you're given a cold towel to freshen up upon entry.

So with high marks in taste, affordability AND service, there's no reason you shouldn't try this place your next time out. It's along 11th Jamboree, near Timog Ave.

Fairly new modern Japanese restaurant in the Kamuning area. The place has two floors with 2 private "areas" in the 2nd floor

We loved the gen maicha tea (brown rice) which is refillable.

Their set meals were affordable yet were more than sufficient for one person. My mom liked the sukiyaki set meal while my Tita finished her chicken Katsu meal in one seating. My sister found her sansukiyaki (breaded chicken) a bit salty. My ebi furai was super large! I think their sashimi were fresh (at least fresh enough for me)

Will come back here when I'm in the area.

Must try: gen maicha tea
