We enjoyed our visit to Shabusen very much. I had the beef & pork Shabu Shabu. The pot of boiling water sitting in front of you cooks the meet and vegetables very quickly and nicely. The water becomes a broth that you drink at the end of the meal. I would recommend this especially for a fun lunch while visiting... More

You have your own pot for Shabu Shabu!! It's a casual way to have Shabu Shabu and you have to worry about other people you are eating with!! Fast service, good food and enjoyed the dessert!!! Please try the Kuzukiri dessert!! It's very traditional Japanese jello! Sweet but very good! If you don't want to wait it's good to go... More

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

Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic.
