Food was uninspired -- yakitori was greasy and flavorless, sushi and nigiri were sloppily made, veggie ramen was totally flavorless and bland, with canned baby corn, frozen cooked spinach, and rubbery mushrooms. Gyoza were the best thing we ordered.

Order the Salmon Oshizushi!!!
We go to Zipang a couple times per month. It’s our neighbourhood go-to.

Local neighbourhood sushi joint. Good food but the service is always less than mediocre.

I feel like each time I come back, the food quality worsens. We ordered a few specialty rolls (Zipang, Love Shuffle, East meets West) and found that a the sushi pieces were inconsistent in size. Some were bigger and stuffed with more ingredients than others. Some had the rice falling apart, and some looked like all the rice was pretty much already gone. The sushi needs WORK. However, their hot food is always pretty decent. I am a big fan of their chicken karaage poutine, but the amount of chicken and cheese has decreased since the last time I was there. I keep hanging on to this place for quick bites, but I feel like I am slipping away.

Service is ok. They are all scattered all over the place...should assigned certain servers to certain sections.

I was meeting a friend for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The place was pretty empty...yet the table they reserved for us was stuck in a corner where you couldn’t see the door and they didn’t have enough staff to welcome and serve so if I hadn’t let my friend know I was already there, no way she would have known without having to walk through the restaurant.

The staff are exceptionally slow. They don’t pay any attention to you unless you seek them out with a lot of effort. A guy at another table had to get up and walk over to their coffee counter for service. When we finally got the one server’s attention to order, he still made us wait even though the restaurant had maybe 6 tables full...and most people came AFTER ours.

On top of this...our meals were served at completely different times. My ramen was served first. My friend’s single sushi roll came out about 10 mins later. They serve only cold water and charge $1 for a pot of tea. When we ordered our tea, we got one cup. Had to ask for a second one. Who does this?

The food was mediocre. My ramen was on the salty side. Don’t think my friend was impressed with her roll either and she paid $9 for it. In summary, I wish I had listened to the negative reviews on this one.

Very friendly and nice servers. Whenever I'm ready they come right away to take my order. Food is very fresh and delicious. Sashimi salad is huge size. Very quiet and feel very relax. I really like this place.I will definitely come back.

Extremely slow service! Service was slow not just to deliver food but also to seat us and we had reservations. When we arrived we had to wait until a server came to greet us, we advised of our reservation which he found on the system and nodded then left and didn't come back! We waited finally for another server to seat us. Once seated we waited about 15 minutes to order our drinks and food at the same time. We were not advised of the long wait for food. We waited about 50 minutes to get our first dish which was wrong and had to be sent back. I'm not sure why there was such a long wait. The server apologized but did not say if they were short staffed or just didn't anticipate being so busy. I will think twice about returning. Had I known the wait would be as long as it was I would have just gone to Toshi or another nearby Japanese restaurant. Servers need to learn how to multi task.

The sashimi was good but the rolls were a little disappointing. Ramen was also just so-so. However the place is nice and serving staff is friendly.

Zipang is our place to go when we need a quick bite or if we need a place to just catch up over some food. The food isn't the BEST but it's not bad. I love their chicken karaage poutine! The staff are very friendly and polite and the restaurant itself has a very funky setting with some industrial touches.

Traditional Japanese with a twist made the menu a little more interesting. Service was slow. Had to wave someone down to take our order and then had to ask for the bill twice.

Sadly the food fell short of its promise. While the menu is innovative, the food was lackluster and greasy in some cases.

The servers and kitchen staff are Japanese, so the food is authentic and the service is excellent. My favourite is the eel dish that can be eaten in 4 different ways. The mille-feuille pork katsu don is worth trying. Sashimi and sushi are always fresh and excellent quality. I have tried pretty much every item on their menu and everything is tasty. The only thing that is not authentic is their portions are bigger than the dishes I had in Japan. Food quality and value are excellent.
