Good teppanyaki!

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

While all other all-you-can-eat/drink Japanese places have faltered in quality and ultimately failed, this oldie has remained strong with quality food, prompt, service, and lively atmosphere you come to expect for these places. I suggest making a trip here if in Shanghai and craving copious amounts of Japanese food.

All you can eat and drink for around 225RMB! Great food and top quality sushi. When making a reservation, ask to be seated at one of the chefs tables which can be great fun. Will definitely come back again next time in Shanghai!

All you can eat is offered (both with alcohol and without), tempting overeating ;-) But the food was really good (had mostly sushi) and the hot dishes are prepared on hot plate right at the table. Wow-effect when the fried banana goes up in flames. Service was quick, good English. If all then they were a bit too attentive, standing... More

Wasn't very easy to find a reasonably priced all-you-can-eat teppanyaki restaurant serving sushi and sashimi too so ended up in Gintei. At 220 RMB per person incl. all beer and sake, it certainly offered value for money: salmon and tuna sashimi were very fresh and the scallops and tenderloin beef melted in the mouth. The only downside was that they... 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.
