At 420 RMB, I think it still to be quite a good value for all-you-can eat veggie, fish, seafood and meat Tappanyaki plus sake and beers. It even includes sushi from its sister restaurant, Haiku, next door. What is best is that the quality of the food product is far superior to most other places and the dining experience is... More

This is my go to Teppanyaki in Shanghai. Their all-you-can-eat-in-2-hours offers above average quality meat, fish and veggie dishes plus a good choice of sushi rolls from their sister restaurant Haiku next door. It's not the greatest and most innovative Teppanyaki in the world, but it's solid and the best value for money I came across in Shanghai so far.... More

We had a table of 8 and being Teppanyaki, always better with a group. Opted for the "all you can eat" and expected a catch "oh sorry sir, not that" or "sorry sir that is a different menu" however this never happened! There is a separate deal and this is not covered but its a very small part of the... More

Far above the well known chains like Tairo, where everything is something made with lots of butter and garlic. Not in Kagen! Fresh and high quality ingredients turned into incredibly tasty dishes. My favorites: the fois gras wrapped in beef and the miso beef. In addition the great, attentive but never obtrusive service made this dinner a pleasure. I'll definitely... More

Have been living here 2000 until 2004, and tepanyaki was a weekly regular. Back then it was 140 rmb, or something like 20 usd or 15 euro, now price is up to 329 rmb, and the exchange gave the rest. But, It's still great, just places have changed. Back then it was dayu tepanyaki, now the place to be is... More

Family visit with 2 young kids, was an amazing experience. We have always known the quality of food and cooking is very strong. But the service, this time around with an attentive wait staff who anticipated our needs, was a first in Shanghai. We will go back, again, and again for the both the service, food quality and thus value.... More

We decided to go for the whole program: all you can eat (and drink, soft drinks and beer) Sushi, Sashimi, Prawns, fish, scallops, vegetables, mushrooms and filet mignon. Everything was really delicious and fresh. The cook was absolutely professional and the service attentively and polite. Whole meal for 328 RMB per person is really a good price. Reservation is recommended.... More

Went there with my colleagues. Food was wonderful, my only issue was that everything was so good I ate to much and food just kept coming and I couldn't eat it all and I really wanted to as it looked so good!

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
