After attending Kabuki performance in the nearby theater, we wanted to visit shabu-shabu restaurant in Ginza area.

It was a reasonable... More

We had dinner here after flying in from the US. The shabu shabu was delicious and the service was excellent. They have a simple English menu and several employees speak English as well. Traveling with our 13 and 11 year olds and they really enjoyed it.

I often go to this restaurant when I want to eat Shabu Shabu. Service is great and the food is also very good. I would recommend Shabusen Ginza core building branch because they have this big round counter and you actually see how they cut the meet and prepare dishes. All my foreigner friends love this place. You can eat... More

Obviously the cost performance is fine, if you are japanese lady or on a diet. The beef served fully covered on a flat plate was really good, soft and juicy. But even with the size that covers the whole plate, 3 slice isn't worth 3,000jpy. (120g for total volume)(´・_・`) I recommend to enjoy lunch their, then you can enjoy shabu-shabu... More

We went to the B2 level and found out an authentic place with friendly staffs and copper pots arranged around the two big counters. Go for a set menu. Order premium beef set for an impressive shabu experience :) ps, this place was packed with the locals, you can watch how they eat their shabu.

The restaurant in the Ginza-Core building (directly accessible from the first underground floor by using exit 4d of the Ginza subway station) has two locations, one on the second floor, one on the second ground floor, and both are equally good. The set menu for ¥ 4,200 includes a starter, prime beef for the shabu shabu - which is of... More
