We got here because we saw the great reviews on TA. Finding it is a bit hard, since it is located in the 5th floor of a buildind. When we got there, there was only shabu shabu. We didn´t know what that was, but also read great reviews, so we went for it. It was an absolutely amazing experience. All... More

It's not known as the best Shabu Shabu in Tokyo but I personally think it's the most bang for the buck! Ive tried so many other places but no where else offers the... More

Located on the 5th Floor of a building close to Isetan. Typical Japanese setting. Very friendly service. Some waitress can even speak English. 3 types of beef to choose from. i.e. normal, high grade and extra high grade. All served with 2 sauces namely peanut and ponzu sauce with radish and carrot. We even had the opportunity to eat Fugu... More

We found this restaurant after looking for the best Shabu Shabu option in Shinjuku area. The place is not easy to find as it is located on the 5th floor of a commercial building and all indications are written in Japanese. There are various Shabu Shabu menu options according to the quality of the Kobe beef. We opted for the... More

If you want top class shabu-shabu, Kisoji is the restaurant to go to. Every ingredient seems to be carefully selected - maybe with the insignificant exception of the Chinese cabbage... As starters we had an outstanding tempura, where especially the mushrooms were astonishing. We also had extra fresh sashimi that was melting in the mouth. All this done with very... More

Quaint, intimate setting and delicious food. There are no tourists here, and not much English is spoken. However, our waitress was extremely sweet and we pointed and ordered. You get an intimate booth with a paper/bamboo door. Tons of vegetables and meat. Great price for all the food you get.

The service is great, very friendly, limited English but they try very hard. The beef is amazing, worth paying the extra. The portions arnt huge for the price but best order an extra portion of thick noodles for the filler :-) overall a fun and pleasant experience

Portions are very small. Frankly for that price I am used to having plenty of meat and ingredients to get satisfied over a lengthy meal. Seems that here you are paying for them to cook for you which is really not necessary and little annoying for Shabu shabu. Shabu shabu should be cooked and eaten at your own pace with... More

Tricky to find, but worth the effort. Excellent value, the four course high grade beef menu under ¥5000 per person.

It is very nice for the food, but it is really hard to locate this restaurant. After located this restaurant 2 days ago, it is full house, so we need to make reservation to have a dinner tonight. However, it doesn't have enough waiters to serve us in time. We waited over 25 minutes for the udon and rice cake.... More
