Visited the newly relocated Shabu Shabu on the Steenstraat in Leiden for the second time within two months, the food is all you can eat concept, but served at the table, Clean, and lean and very tasty and a choice of over one hundred dishes. The dessert table could be better although I enjoyed the mango ice cream. People complain... More

Visited with friends on their recommendation - couldn't be faulted and we couldn't eat it all! Fantastic food, great ordering on tablet menus, very quick service. What more could you ask for! Make sure you're very hungry before you come!

The reviews on TA say it all. - Not all you can eat (extra fees for certain dishes) - Not the best quality sushi, or presentation for that matter - Pricey drinks - Busy and noisy place - Cold staff, average service Keep looking. This is not the place you want to spend your evening.

The sushi selection is rather wide. It is claimed to be "all you can eat" but it is not. You have a fixed amount of dishes you can order. Overall they are more than enough and the price is well worth.

Sushi was indecent. Lack of care for a food that is supposed to be delicate was visible from the very beginning: rice almost falling, hand rolls disintegrating if they were not hold properly and deceiving taste. Rest of the dishes were either too sweet, either too hot or with no taste at all. We did not expect a sushi experience... More
