“Excellent food in a tourist town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We asked a local shop owner for a good restaurant recommendation during our stroll up Main Street in Park City, and her recommendation of Shabu was just what we needed. We sat at the bar and had extremely delicious sushi and asian-fusion dishes that were full of fresh ingredients and spices/flavors, well-presented and served with welcome hospitality by the bartender and wait staff.

The daily clay pot was a coconut red curry that was awesome! The perfect amount of subtle tangy, sweet and spice.

The green beans with miso sauce were amazing. Tasted almost like a peanut sauce, but it was in fact a miso sauce.

The sushi rolls were fantastic, as was the shrimp hot plate dish and the scallop hot plate.

The best combination of sushi and asian-fusion 'tapas' style small plates that I have ever had.

“Excellent food, nice decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This place was recommended to us by our tour guide on a ski tour of Park City Mountain Resort, particularly for the firecracker shrimp. He was right about that, it was delicious. Also loved the wagyu beef rock. We went quite early with our kids and place was full of other families - nice to be able to eat somewhere a little higher end with kids without feeling bad. Service was a little wooden.

“Great Sushi on Main St”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Ate here during our recent trip to Park City. We liked the atmosphere of this Main St establishment. The aroma that greets you when you open the door turned on my appetite. Good, friendly service even with the town being busy for Sundance Film Fest. Our group of 4 sampled several items from the menu, all was very good. I will definitely come back next time we are in PC.

“Can be too busy, but food is fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Innovative changing menu. Great sushi. Best early or you will be waiting a bit. I sometimes wonder what it would be like if Shabu could have a higher ceiling and more light- Don't be afraid of the hot courses they are some of the best in the area.

“Excellent Asian Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We recently dined at Shabu and it was just a great experience. Outstanding dishes included the Wagu Hot Rock, Firecracker Shrimp (try the amazing homemade teriyaki sauce) and the nightly Hot Pot all from the Small Hot Plate menu. It is not inexpensive, but for us the quality was worth it. The ambiance is a funky mountain casual blend and the restaurant is conveniently located centrally for pre/post dinner Main Street shopping and/or drinks.
