I failed to mention Nihonbashitei at Pedro Gil. So far, this is the best that I have tried in Manila. They really serve good Japanese food. The ambience is also great because there are rooms that look like restaurants in Japan. The downside is that there are a lot of Japanese people who keep on smoking in the restaurant.
The food price is below 300Php. You must try their Udon, Takoyaki and Gyoza. ;) Their Yakiniku is also very good! *yum!*
