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

Shanghai has variety of everything....and quantity. Difficult is to find quality. From all the all you can eat spots, Kagen stands out. You pay slightly more, but worth every penny, starting from your arrival experience. Great quality of food, present chefs.... Highly recommended.

At 288 the all you can eat/drink is a bit more than the other all you can eat teppanyaki restaurants in town. This small price is worth it though. The food a better quality, than the others and it is a bit more private. There are two dinner times, at 6:30 and at 8:30. Keep this in mind when you... More

Having lived in Shanghai for over 4 yrs I can totally recommend this Teppanyaki buffet to anyone visiting Shanghai. Of course they do have a-la-carte menu but not worth it. By far the nicest all you can eat buffet in SH well located in the French concession area. The scallops, the ox tongue and the bacon beef roll with foie... More

Having tried many teppanyaki places of different quality (it more or less comes down to free flow beer, sake and lots of meat) I always return to Kagen! The price might be around 100 rmb more than the usual 180,- rmb places where to tourists and students flock, but the quality of the food and atmosphere at Kagen is simply... More

Whenever I'm in Shanghai at least one dinner at Kagen is a must! It is the best Teppanyaki restaurant I've been too and it is truly a pure pleasure every time. If you don't know it, Teppanyaki is from Japan and you sit next to the steaktable, with the chef and the preparations infront of you. It is a very... More

A beautifully decorated restaurant that serves fresh and good food. However - many restaurants are nice and have just as good food. At this restaurant both my husband, our friends and I felt we that the staff thought we couldn´t eat fast enough so they could get rid of us and get in new guests. A very stressful experience! The...
