Waiters are very kind and efficient, compliments to the manager who has done a good training. Food was just okay, we order different meat and seafood, the meats were OVERCOOKED not juicy and tender, seafood wasn't fresh at all, had few beers even got sick in head the day after. Not sure it's a good value.

Kagen is the choice if I want to bring visitors for a all you can eat Teppanyaki buffet. Price is RMB 328 per person, the price is little on the high side but choose from appetizers, sushi rolls, seafood, meats, vegetables and drinks. Food is prepared by the chef right in front of you and my favorite is the jumbo... More

I love Japanese food especially when it comes to Teppanyaki and after hearing a buffet teppanyaki from a friend, I definitely have been missing a lot. So much sushi, meat and seafood to choose from! I had soooo much for dinner and I remember not being able to sleep afterwards. Service was slow but chefs were friendly. However such an... More

This restaurant is in think one of my favorite! You have a large choice from the seafood to excellence pieces of meat. You can chose the way you want everything cooked and it is unlimited!!! Looking at the chief cooking the food you have just closed is a great show! The price is maybe a bit expensive (200+RMB) but it... More

328 RMB and two hours to eat as much as you prefer. Wine, beer and sake all included. Maybe a bit overpriced one may think, but when the dishes start coming you forget about the price. Freshly deep-fried calamari and other treats for appetizers. All crispy, sizzling and made to order. Sashimi is fresh and tender, super tasty. Wasabi is... More

The food in Kagen is quiet good and not expensive, service can be improved but the overall experience is very positive. The All you can eat buffet for 288 rmb including drinks is a good choice.

This restaurant is close to Hengshan Lu and always crowded. Reservation in advance is absolutely necessary. All you can eat buffet for 288RMB/person is higher than in some other restaurants but it is worthy. During every visit in Shanghai we will go there at least once. For people who like flamed banana you have to pay separate but at least... More
