all you can eat!

My experience at this restaurant was excellent. I ordered seafood and much other items and they were great quality foods. Although, it may seem expensive, it was well worth it. I could never pay for all that food and fresh here in Canada for that price. It was all you can eat and drink! I thought... read more

My family and I came here for AYCE lunch the last time we were in Shanghai. We were so happy with our experience at this restaurant. The food was surprisingly good (we come from Vancouver so our standard for Japanese food is quite high). Service was also good and I would recommend making a reservation if you plan to go... More

Food is good, as with every teppanyaki in Shanghai really, but service is lackluster, they hurried us up and served everything at once instead of after each other. While at other places they take veggies on the hot plate as well, here they bring them out. Plates are placed in central positions, not in front of everyone individually, thus they... More

Couldn't understand why it's listed as Yin Ting but the restaurant is called Gintei? Quality of food is not too bad but the staff definitely need to understand that customers don't like to hear them or see then clearing up the tables. The noise is so destructive to the atmosphere.

Good food and nice service. The place itself is nothing special . Good value for money! Will come back. Everything is good, fish, meat and dessert.

Nice place for an all you can eat, quality was although just average and selection not so great. Located in the very centre of the city. Tables are too large to allow a conversation. Proficient and polite staff. 3.5 out of 5.

The best thing about this all you can eat restaurant is that it's truly a restaurant - not a buffet. Food made to order - all perfect. Excellent sashimi - very fresh, no watery "previously frozen" taste. A nice surprise - we will definitely return. Service was perfect, the owner is a delight. I made a reservation for a large...

What's not to love? "All you can eat and drink" here includes sushi, hibachi grill items, and liquor for 280 yuan.

The greatest thing about the restaurant is the value you receive for the money! Food is really good, for the sushi as well as all freshly made teppanyaki dishes, which are prepared on the grill right in front of you. Make sure you go for the flamed version of the fried banana for the ending, to receive a little show... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
