Yummy shabu-shabu!

This place offers delicious shabu-shabu! We ordered the 6 oz. premium set with the asuka classic soup base. The soup was soooo delicious, and the meat was also good. The place is small and cozy.. and may I add that Shelly offers an excellent service!

My husband and I came in a couple Saturdays ago, and split a crêpe with bananas, strawberries and nutella. We sat at a small table at the front and looked out the window, with classic Jazz music playing in the background. I noticed the wood beams that gave the place an updated/biophilic feel, as we were served a bottle of... More

This is my family's go-to restaurant for shabu shabu or whenever we can't decide where to go. It is so good that we go there at least 3 times per month. We've tried most of the broths but now always get the Asuka broth and the kalbi meat. They have awesome sauces to use for dipping (the sesame is soooo... More

Asuka has delicious hot pot with a wide selection of choices and fresh meats and veggies. We loved the Asuka broth and didn't find it too rich at all. By the end of the meal, the broth was so delicious! We mixed it with the multi-grain rice and enjoyed that as much as the rest of the amazing meal. We... More

Came here twice for lunch... first time with a group of 6 girlfriends, and then 16 of us for a Mother's Day family gathering. They take reservations and it's BYOB (bonus). Asuka's signature broth is excellent! Portions are perfect and you leave totally satisfied for about $20 per person (2 children can easily share 1). They're open for dinner and... More

Best Shabu Shabu - Impressive choice of delicious soups, platters of fresh foods to cook, great sauces and all at value prices. We had the Aauka signature soup - creamy and delicious with added butter and pepper. Osaka and Paitan were also very flavoursome though a tad salty. The Wagyu beef was definitely worth the price premium and was considerably... More

This shabu shabu place never disappoints. It is worth every cent, and even so, is not too expensive. Love it!

I love this place it's cheaper than eating at home. My GF and I can go here and eat for $25.00, that's like buying plate lunches. The spicy Umakara broth is great.

I am a nabe lover, and this place is the best! The asuka soup is SO delicious - it makes all the meats and veggies super tasty. The price is fairly decent too, and two can share a nabe and maybe add on a veggie or two for a very filling and satisfying meal. Great place to go!
