Zi­pangu moves to Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

“There’s a lot of peo­ple wait­ing for us here who asked when are we go­ing to open in Port Dou­glas and we de­cided to move,” Mrs Iwag­ishi said.

“We like the life­style change and used to have lots of staff now we are just an­swer­ing to our­selves, we are start­ing with only my­self and my hus­band.

“Sup­ply is difficult for us but still we can man­age to do au­then­tic Ja­panese food for the lo­cal peo­ple, we don’t do over-the-top prices, it’s more af­ford­able for fam­i­lies.”

The shop is al­most ready to open. Fur­nish­ings and dec­o­ra­tions are be­ing set up and the plan is to open next Wed­nes­day.

Zi­pangu will be open Wed­nes­day to Sunday for lunch and din­ner, dine-in or take­away and it is BYO un­til they re­ceive their liquor li­cence when there will be lots of Ja­panese sake to en­joy with the au­then­tic Ja­panese cui­sine.
