Hatsuhana is an interesting restaurant. It's located above what appears to be a typical local hotel lobby. There's also a mix of local and cosmo vibes about the place, starting with rows of chairs in the entry area remarkably similar to a doctors' waiting room! Decor and fit out are one of the weaker aspects of the restaurant. Fortunately though,... More

I was a bit concern when we decided to book this restaurant, on a recommendation form a work colleague, without even knowing the name (so no help from TA here). All-you-can-eat generally translate in buffets and massively cooked basic food for the masses which generically mean poor taste and bloated stomach. Makes no mistake here, this is in fact an...

I had not eaten here for very long time. This is well-known all you can eat Japanese restaurant. In January 2015 the price per head is 400 renminbi. This is ok especially, if you can eat and drink bit more. The pros -food is fresh & high quality (but not excellent) -they have a good selection of Japanese favorites -sheng... More

This place is great! Food is excellent, atmosphere is fantastic and service is good. You can really enjoy the Japanese feeling in this nice place at the third floor of the Gubei Wan Hotel. I would be back for sure.

The food is average, the service is not remarkable. But if you want to get the feeling of Japanese atmosphere, here you will have it.

At 300 RMB, Hatsuhana is twice the price of the average Shanghai teppanyaki all-you-can-eat restaurant. The staff only speak Japanese and Chinese, though the menu is in English. Despite this the place is packed every night, and reservations are usually a must. The reason is simple: the food. Fantastic sashimi and sushi are served in attractive layouts, very generous and...

Hatsuhana is on the 3rd floor of Gubei Garden Hotel, right by the Yili Lu subway stop. Given the prices of individual dishes, only the all-you-can-eat is worth considering but came off a harsh 300 RMB, more expensive than many places in the West. No English spoken by the staff but the menu is dubbed in English and Japanese. I... More

Hatsuhana, having moved to Level 3, Gubei Garden Hotel, 1446 Hongqiao Lu, is drawing crowds of savvy local diners plus a good number of expats (mostly Japanese). Reservation is therefore a must. (Tel: [----]). Reasons for its popularity: outstanding decor; courteous and efficient service; excellent cooking and the freshest of seafood. Amaebi, uni and arctic clams are the best items... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
