I found this restaurant on Groupon and decided to give it a try. The service was very good - attentive and quick. The food was decent but definitely nothing to brag about. The place is really small (like 6 or 7 tables and a bar). If you want privacy this is not the place as I felt like I was... More

They took great care of us. We had fun cooking our food at the table in our hot pot of 2 broths. $100 with plenty of food, wine, and tip for 4! We could not understand how the other tables arrived, ate and were out of there so quickly. You can eat individual pieces or keep creating your own soups... More

Been coming here since its opening in 2008. It's always fresh and great service! Must try the combos with choices of great broth. My favorite is the Tontoro pork belly, but they have a variety of seafood and vegetarian choices too. If you are a vegetarian make sure to ask for vegetarian broth.

Went for the hot pot all you can eat lunch. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing. Can't wait to go back.

This restaurant has a limited menu, and after a few times it becomes boring. They do not care if you are a regular. They will not take a reservation, even for a special event. I cannot even begin to imagine why they continue to fill the space, even as tiny as it is, when there is so much better and... More

With four of us in our party, we ordered two combo platters, two supplementary veggie plates and an extra meat plate. This proved to be a good-sized meal for our group (plus dessert for each of us). The combo platters included a good selection of very fresh veggies. We had great fun cooking the selections ourselves in the two broths... More

We went to Shabu since we went to a Shabu restaurant in California. Were not sure how to order or understand the menu. The waitstaff was extremely helpful and we were happy with our selections. We sat at the counter and I think it is easier to have your own space.Had a great experience and felt we were on vacation... More

Really and truly delighted to discover and enjoy this restaurant. I ordered simple maki rolls--spicy tuna and spicy salmon. Friend ordered the sirloin combo, which included rare beef and fresh vegetables ready to dip/cook in their homemade pork broth. Both of us also received a variety of homemade sauces (including Chinese BBQ and soy sauce) for dipping. Everything was outstanding.... More

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
