The Kagen is a very nice and very good restaurant! Weekends you have defiantly to make reservations on time ... at least 2 days in advance. The quality of the food especially meet and fish is very good and the " all you can eat and drink" offer is great and I can only recommend the restaurant because it is... More

We simply loved this teppanyaki. Everything we tried on the menu was of really high quality, expertly prepared by a quiet, unsmiling diminiutive chef. But what really sets this place apart in our minds is the mindblowing "buffé" deal - with all you can eat and all you can drink at a price that would just about buy a bottle... More

amazing experience in a real teppanyaki restaurant. I was terrified to go to Japanese restaurant because I don't eat fish but the quality and variety of choices is so interesting that I could try a lot of different foods. The formula all you can eat is for me the best choice for having a full idea of their proposal.

Take ' all you can eat ' option . It is worth it's price . Delicious beef , shelfish . Cook is not too impressive but knows his job . Unlimited beer and wine included in price . Reservation recommended . It was very crowded but we managed to join table with two couples . Good service

We actually were going to PIN CHUAN down the street for dinner, but after waiting a half hour to be served, we left and come here without a reservation. After initially telling us they were sold out, they found four seats for us and we ended up having a very nice dinner. For about $40US pp we were served so... More

Had the buffée and choose around 8 dishes. From vegetables to fish and meat and everything was absolutely delicious. Favourites from the amazing evening was the Scallops, Filet Mignon and Salmon. The quality of the meat and fish was very high and is one of the best teppanyaki restaurants I have ever eaten at. Drinks also included in the price... More

I was there for a business dinner, second time actually. With a chef cooking the food in front of me, presentation was nothing special but the quality of the food was really good and every thing was very fresh. I had a great time.

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

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood 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.
