When our regular shabu shabu restaurant closed down, we were lost. We stumbled across this place and haven't missed the old place once. The portions are good, prices are in line with what you get, and the soup at the end is always a hi light. Make sure you go right when they open or be prepared to wait. This... More

I have given this place high marks in the past, but recently have been reading some negative reviews about my fav shabu place. Had to check it out again last night and still must maintain my initial review of the quality food, taste, presentation and service. Definitely an energy charged atmosphere and a plus to the servers who help make... More

I love the food here. It's fresh and you can cook the meat as little or as long as you want. The service is good and I like the atmosphere. My neice and I make it a habit to meet and eat here a couple of times a year. Making my stomach grumble just thinking about it!

Unique dining!! My Daughter first took me to Shabu Shabu a year ago for Mother's Day ... Loved it!! When she asked where I'd like to go for my Birthday Dinner .... Shabu Shabu of course. The atmosphere is comfortable, friendly; the food is exceptional, fresh, healthy Ingredients prepared right in front of you. Great dining experience.

I liked this place, but not sure if I'd be back because of the hidden location. Menu is priced fairly, and the food portion is decent. Its not a bad place, but not the first shabu place I'd think of.

We didn't know they would make a soup from the broth that was remaining from cooking our meal. It was delicious but was... More

A great Find.Very Cordial and Friendly Staff...(Kudos!). Plenty of free parking. Make reservations and arrive early. Locted only about 1/2 mile west of Tustin and the 55 FWY. The place is modern and has two Shabu Shabu Bars to dine at which are located to your left and right upon entering. There is a large screen television to your right... More
