We love this place. The service and the food is very good. The location is just opposite the Yan an from the Hongmei pedestrian street in Soho.

Been eating at Hikari for 5 years. The most tasteful, classy, unique Japanese restaurant in Shanghai. The owners are wonderful people who regularly interact with customers. A truly family run business. The rolls are masterfully constructed and beautifully displayed on the serving plates. The signature Hikari roll is not one to be missed! The diversity of the food at Hikari... More

Hikari is a Japanese restaurant that has wonderful sushi and teppanyaki. The menu is vast and has something for everyone. I have been eating here for years and have not had a disappointing meal yet. The staff is very friendly and there is always someone there that speaks English. The restaurant has recently been remodeled. It is extremely clean and... More

We went to Hikari for lunch and had some a la carte makis. In my opinion, they were quite bland. I did not taste the mix of ingredients I was expecting from the description on the menu. The chicken in sesame sauce was too sweet and overcooked and my wife had a skewers mix in which, I am sorry to... More

We had an excellent set of box lunches for six. The sushi was surprisingly fresh for China and the food was beautifully presented. Highly recommended.

Great food, very tasty and fresh. We took a large selection of dishes. Everything was very, very good. Service was excellent, from the telephone booking of our table to the time we left was very friendly and warm. Few restaurants make you so welcome. As we arrived we bumped into a friend who said she eats here every week. Her... More

We live right down the street from this place, and it's become one of our favorite restaurants. I've probably been there about 20 times, and I've never had a bad dish. I would definitely recommend their sushi rolls (60-90rmb)...There are 2 or 3 pages of options, and they're all delicious. My girlfriend really likes the butteryaki steak, and the teriyaki... More

Excellent food, great service and clean place. Wide choice of sushi, sashimi and different Japanese dishes in a nice environment. Not cheap but resonable prices.

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.
