I had been told that this was the best Teppanyaki in the city. It is quite expensive considering the numerous options you have in Shanghai to go any restaurant of this kind so I expected the food quality and service to be just higher than the average. What I found was that the food has some restrictions, like you can... More

The food here is incredible, the best Tepenyaki I have had in Shanghai (have tried 4 or 5) all you can eat/drink deal is around 300RMB One thing that let it down slightly was that we shared our table/chef with another group who came in and ordered loads, which meant we had to wait ages for our next order and...

Very good food! The staff didn't speak much english which made it kind of hard to order exactly what we ordered (i.e. a couple of red wine glasses never arrived). We payed approx. 750 yuan for all you can eat.

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

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.
