My boys - ages 12 and 9 now, but we have been going to Shabu for several years - absolutely LOVE this restaurant for its quality and format. As the name implies, shabu means that you cook your own food in a flavorful broth. They provide the ingredients you request, and the rest is up to you. Both of my... More

We ended up here on a Saturday in the early evening last weekend. I was impressed with the offerings of ostrich and beef tongue. My fiancé and I had the kimchi broth. We also ordered a side of kimchi which was delicious. We had a shrimp tempura roll which I enjoyed and he did not. For our hot pot, we... More

Five Ladies who had never before experienced Chinese Hot Pot traveled to Quincy to enjoy a lunch at Shabu. It was worth the trip. We had so much fun experimenting with different vegetables and noodles. The crisp green watercress and spinach were so tasty in the kimchi broth. We ordered the all you can eat lunch buffet for $19.95. Regular... More

Love! If you want the feel of the melting pot without the high price tag, and with an Asian flare, Shabu is the place to go! I went there a couple of nights ago for my first time, though I've been wanting to try it out for a couple of years. I LOVED it! The Kimchi soup and the beef... More

I've had hot pot at many places, this include shabu zen in chinatown and their other location in allston. Then there was hot pot buffet in chinatown as well. This place beats all of those places. Why? Shabu zen and this Shabu has the same quality food and same broths. But shabu zen has been down sizingtheir portions, they started... More

I have never tried hot pot before but my three friends that came along have. The vegetables for the hot pot were nice and fresh. The meat was really good;although a little fatty. I got the regular broth which I suggest for first timers. For the meat I got the shaved sirloin. It is really neat to try and I... More

Hubby & I have been here a half dozen times now (both with & without son in tow) and every time we come away happy! We frequented a shabu place right in Chinatown but have found it to be pricier lately with inconsistent service & sometimes hour long waits. Not the case here and it's just minutes from our house!...

We've visited twice now and we're hooked on Shabu! The first visit I ordered a meat combo (comes w/ a huge veggie platter and rice or noodles) and my boyfriend ordered the Kobe beef special along w/ gyoza. Way too much food! So the 2nd time we ordered only a la carte: chicken, sirloin, napa, oyster mushrooms, and an appetizer... More

We finally can check hot pot off our lists because of our successful 1st visit to Shabu. We'll be back for sure as it is an outstanding value, fun, interesting, healthy, and has lots of combinations to choose from. For those who are foreign to hot pot, it is a style of cooking where you cook the meat and vegetables... More
