Three of us ate here for lunch at 17 euros per head for all you can eat. Sushi is ok but doesn't knock your taste buds out. Lots to choose from and orders are taken via a table which is great. Service very fast but then the restaurant was almost empty.

Not what you would expect, really well presented menu, but the food that arrives doesn't match it and the taste is just bland. The prices are high but no different from any other sushi 🍣 place.

As you may well expect from a restaurant serving sushi like in an industrial production chain, quantity wins over quality at Shabu Shabu. The sushi served here is not comparable to other Japanese restaurants, and although the all-you-can-eat formula will fill you up, you better head somewhere else for better taste, service and friendliness. Last, but not least, pay attention... More

We were going to the movie next door (they put an intermission randomly in the film so you can get some more refreshments .... unheard of and annoying) so we stopped before hand for some sushi. We hadn't read the menu carefully and learned after sitting down at the table that it was a prix fix, all-you-can-eat menu, rather step... More

When I went into this restaurant at the beginning of the dinner time there was just a handful of people. An employee appeared immediately and offered me a table. In the beginning, that means in the first hour, the staff was really fast with bringing my orders and picking up used dishes. But then more and more guests came and... More

I've been to Shabu Shabu on several occasions and even though it is not the best sushi in Leiden the menu has a variety of options for other dishes besides sushi. I decided to take my parents there one night and as we were sort of a big group I called in the early afternoon to make a reservation. Upon... More

Ate at this restaurant on a busy night, yet the service was quick and the staff was agreable. Good quality for their sushis and sashimis
