    I was surprised to see no reviews were ever writing about this place here. And to be honest a little bit frightened to try it. My experience with Shanghai restaurant had taught me to always follow trusted institutions and on-line reviews. So I looked elsewhere (can I say that here?) in search for some feedback on this venue. I didn't find too many reviews, but the ones that I did find were not bad at all. So against all of my instincts, me and my husband visited Gintei.
    We made a reservation to make sure we will be sited near where the action is (the chef) but when we arrived it turned out the place was relatively empty. There were just 2 other forging couples besides us (later on another group of foreigners arrived but that was it).
    The décor was undated to say the least, and it felt like this place hadn’t seen an interior decorator in ages.
    The waitress was welcoming and supplied us with large menus and we quickly started ordering. She seems very attentive and wrote some stuff down. It didn't take long for most dishes to arrive at our table but amazingly, not all of it made it. After a while both us, and the couple sitting next to us, started to realize that even though she is writing stuff down, it doesn't mean it will end up in our belly. Bizarre. I don’t know if it was her poor language skills that prevented her from explaining the situation or the fact that they expect you to forget what you order since it is an all you can eat joint. So based on what did make it I can say that The meet was good, sea food was largely fried of filled with sweet mayonnaise (what’s the deal with that??) and the sushi was nothing more than OK.
    Overall it was not too bad, we've seen better but also worst. The Teppanyaki experience is defiantly worth at least 1 visit, and it’s a great way to eat a lot and get drunk without going bankrupted (280 RMB PP). Will we return? Probably not. There are better spots in this huge city.

    I eating now 6 years long in Gintei restaurant and it never failed.
    We went with customer, german visitors, friends and CEO's in this restaurant and everyone was so happy and want come back. We are never have health problems, it doesn't matter summer or winter. The restaurant decor is normal, but the food and drinks are very good. What can you do wrong with cold Tsingtao or Asahi beer. The Sake taste awesome. The most important issue is no one is kicking you out ! You can sit there talk with friend or business the whole night long. We are arriving in Gintei normally between 18.30-19.00 o'clock and never leaving before 21.30 o'clock. Most of the times Friday and Saturday is full packed. In the past it was incredible packed but after Japan i think many people were afraid. Now the thinking changed again and it will be like in the past. It is better to do a reservation. If you can except normal decor and decoration of the plates are not special for me this is the place. But is doesn't matter because the food is not very long on the plate. My favorites are salmon grilled, grilled codfish, sashimi tuna and salmon, beef, lamp, tiger roll. You can reorder anytime no problem, but you need eat it. No like in other restaurants where they are always stop bringing you food after a while. In winter it is a little bit cold, because the entrance door often opens and many people went out for smoking. The restaurant owner told me he will change the door very soon.
    Go here if all other options are fully booked

    The first time I ate at Gintei the food was not bad, but considering it is +40RMB more than other well known Teppanyaki restaurants in Shanghai and only includes a limited selection of drinks, it is hard to see why the prices are so high. The decor is pretty grim and there are not enough seats around the hot plates. Go here if all other options are fully booked. The location is fairly convenient in Jingan.

    It\'s an all you can drink, so I like it. The food is good, if you receive it. Service is generally good looking girls, who are good at serving drinks, and good at not writing down half the things you order. Best bet is to get a larger group together and get the back room. You don\'t get the tepanyaki experiance or decor, and service is slightly worse - however, the glasses used here and very fragile, and often break when doing sake bombs. If you break too many, or are too loud, you get kicked out, so the trick is to move to the back room where you can do just about anything and no one can hear you, you\'re closer the restroom, and you can hide broken glasses at the end of the night when they want to kick you out anyway.

    So this was the second time I visited Gintei after a nice dinner the first go. We were luckily to be seated on a busy Friday night but unfortunately not at one of the "cook in your face" tables. We didn't mind, with no reservation it wasn't a big deal. We each went on selecting dish after dish and the service was slow and minimal. I happened to order 5 beef rolls filled with mushroom and onions that was served 20 minutes later. The rolls were presented on a plate in a star pattern...so I grabbed the roll closest to me and everyone else followed. I start to chew my filled beef roll and find something hard inside. After living in China for sometime I've gotten use to bones, cartilage, etc. in my food. Rather than spit it out, I continue chewing while I put this hard object to the side of my mouth. Finally I finish my beef roll and I spit whatever was in my mouth on to my plate. I hear the loud sound of a "ting" and wonder "I didn't expect to hear that"...so I look down at my plate. Sure enough I'm staring at a nut (a bolt) hexagonal in shape with a doughnut hole center. I called the waitress over to explain how that could have possible gotten in my food in which she says sorry and takes my plate to the kitchen. She comes back soon after with a clean plate and that's all. I just laughed it off and the rest of the night I was telling the group of friends at the table I had a nut in my mouth..how was your dinner? After that incident the service was great and the drinks kept coming...but they didn't comp. my meal but hey This is China!
    Decent, but food serving is SLOW

    Went there with a group of friends when we were around the corner..

    RMB199 for All-You-Can-Eat is seriously not cheap considering the other options not too far away. Well, I guess we are paying for the location.

    Food wise is not too bad, but the speed of serving is so..so..SLOW.
    People may argue, what can you expect, this is what they do for All-You-Can-Eats.
    But this is something I cannot tolerate.
    Decent all you can eat if you are around the area

    If you are around this area and looking for an all you can eat, it\'s not a bad place to go to. I wouldn\'t run around shanghai Specifically going to this restaurant. I think the price is a bit high considering all the other places out there. If you are going on the weekend make sure to call ahead, you never know if they are full or not.

    We had the All-you-can-eat-offer, and we waited for hours to get only 25 % of the courses we ordered. The beers were warm and the waitresses were stressed out and didn't have time to answer our questions. When we complained to the manager, he was arrogant and didn't even care to apologize for the waiting and the horrible service. Don't go to Gintei - there are other Teppanyaki places in town that are better and cheaper than this!

    The food was AMAZING. Im a broke student but I would still think its worth putting in 200 RMB for the all you can eat here (and all you can drink)!
    It was so so fresh.
    Even though there are cheaper all you can eat sushi places in town, I would tell you to fork out those 30 rmb extra because it definitely is worth it!

    The lighting was a bit bright so perhaps not a super romantic spot, but the food is so good I wouldnt think about the decor if I went on a date there.
    Even if fuwuyuan everytime looks at me in a fed up way...

    maybe it's because i usually order a lot!
    food is very good, even though they always tricky let you wait for too long between courses, hoping that your hungry magically stops and don't exceed their 188 rmb budget all-you-can eat and drink...
    fish or meat seems quite fresh, never ever had unpleasant aftermath...

    worth it.
