I had not been to Kagen for a while but was not disappointed once again, great food and service. The sashimi always top quality and the chicken and mushroom consomme is to die for. All the robatayaki skewers are also nice to go with a frosty beer or cold sake!! I wish the menu could be updated more often!

We were 6, and had a great time. the place is very pretty with the wood decor and private rooms. There is a wide variety of meats. we took the set menu that had great appetizers. The chef was great and very attentive to all the requests - the beef was awesome! not cheap, but great when on company expense...

Now in 2013 the standards are just not up to par anymore...I wouldn't recommend anyone coming here anymore. It's as if they completely changed how they prepared the food it's just really different. Summary- Nice business... More

Oh and wow, I can't figure out what more to wish for. The food is excellent, the surroundings (with the first trick - how do we actually get in?) and the service as well. Specifically, the "whatever is called" style of cooking where the chef prepares everything in front of you on a heated surface, with maybe some theatrical additions... More

I often go there with friends as we always know what we gonna have is consistently very good, value for money and with great service attitude! They recognize you and facilitate special request easily! That's why it stands out and is still in business in Beijing for so long!

Came here with friends on a Sunday dinner and we were seated on a private room. The location is in the basement of a building and it could be easily miss if your are driving. The location and the ambiance was good. We were seated right away. The tepanyaki grill is a little bit on a salty side. I was... More
