Value for money shabu shabu buffet. There is a wide variety of food and drinks are included. Do check out sukishi (rival) as well.

“Very average shabu shabu restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Being a big fan of shabu shabu we dined at this restaurant during our week long stay in May. Almost immediately after sitting down we regretted it as it was a conveyor belt type service. If you've gotten use to eating at shabu shabu restaurants where they primarily serve all you can eat quality meats, this is not the place for you.

“Very affordable place fir big eater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

The food is amazing. Taste very japanese. The variety is just plenty. But i think they should implement the non-wastage rule on their customer as there are so many food wastage. Nice ice cream,juice,tea,shushi,and so on.the picture tells it all.

“Affordable buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We were walking in the mall and saw people queuing up next to McDonalds. Wow, I think this could be the busiest restaurant in Patong. The place was packed and we had to give it a try since the price is reasonable too. We waited for 15 minutes before entering. I love Japanese food but the food here was just average. I'm sure they could have done better, but probably the huge crowd brought down the quality of food. We were lucky our place was quite accessible to the servers as service was better. Great price, good service but big room for other improvements.

“Best Japanese Buffet Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I went here in April this year and although Sushi has never been on the top of my list, I was convinced that this was different. I was pleasantly surprised. They do have an array of sushi, Tempura and many other ready made dishes, but the steam pot and conveyor belt to choose your own ingredients is ingenious. Great fresh food and very good value for money. I highly recommend!
