We walked-in on a Saturday evening just before 6 PM and there were plenty of seats - restaurant seats around 80 over bar-like tables with some individual tables for bigger groups. There was a mixture of both tourists and locals. It is located on B2F on the Ginza Core Building (same building as Oslo Coffee) near the intersection with the... More

Came here with a local friend and her mum. This was my first experience of Shabu-Shabu. So, i'm no expert, but I thought it was great. The price was around Y3000 each including free refills of rice/rice porridge and it also included desert. We ordered the pork and beef with veg. It cooked quickly and was really tasty...especially with the... More

Always a place to dine when i'm in Tokyo. Staffs can speak English and they have English menu provided. They are quite famous now so you might have to wait a bit. I had Wagyu A4 set at the price of 4,400 Yen. The beef is so good and the soup is refreshing. Don't forget to finish your meal with... More

This was my first time trying Shabu Shabu and i was unsure of what to expect. We ordered pork and beef that were quick to cook in the boiling water & succulent to taste. The service was quick and friendly. The counter where we sat clean and welcoming. A fun eating experience !

Just had an excellent meal here. B2 level of the Ginza Core building. Restaurant is well patronised by locals. We weren't quite sure what to do, but by watching the other customers and asking the friendly staff, we were able to figure it out. As it was or last night in Japan, we had the most expensive option, the wagyu... More

It was good, but not very good. Service is awesome. English friendly. Around USD 40/set of wagyu shabu-shabu. USD 12 for the wagyu meat.

Shabusen has expanded, they are now two restaurants in the same building. In the basement B2 they have counter service, and on the second floor, 2F they have tables. I always go for the counter service in the basement, it is a fun way to eat and a better atmosphere, especially if you are dining solo. Plus you get your... More

Shabusen is a surprisingly large underground establishment that does teeming lunchtime business. Inside, you are faced with what I thought to be a novel setup of high chairs surrounding a counter with a Shabu pot in front of each diner. There were several such counters in this restaurant. This is a Shabu Shabu specialty place, meaning that it is not... More

The price is cheap, but you get what you pay for here. There are a lot of visitors here, because it is easier if you you cook in front of yourself the meat and vegetables in water and eat together with the dips you like. What surprised me is the condiment they provide that is not usually found in Japnese... More
