“Fun experience being served by Geishas”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

The service is great, very friendly, limited English but they try very hard. The beef is amazing, worth paying the extra. The portions arnt huge for the price but best order an extra portion of thick noodles for the filler :-) overall a fun and pleasant experience

“Ok but not great value”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Portions are very small. Frankly for that price I am used to having plenty of meat and ingredients to get satisfied over a lengthy meal. Seems that here you are paying for them to cook for you which is really not necessary and little annoying for Shabu shabu. Shabu shabu should be cooked and eaten at your own pace with vegetables, tofu etc replenished. Overall good atmoshphere and taste but not the best shabu shabu experience.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Tricky to find, but worth the effort. Excellent value, the four course high grade beef menu under ¥5000 per person.

“Very high quality shabu shabu”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

It is very nice for the food, but it is really hard to locate this restaurant. After located this restaurant 2 days ago, it is full house, so we need to make reservation to have a dinner tonight.

However, it doesn't have enough waiters to serve us in time. We waited over 25 minutes for the udon and rice cake.

Improvements must be made or the customer will not come again because the cost is quite high, 25000yen for 2 person.

“Best shabu shabu in Tokyo?”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Had a great meal. Great service. They took reservations. Incredible beef. Glad we saw that it was across from Uniqlo. If you read Chinese, you can match the restaurant to the correct building. It is one building among five? Also, glad we could walk dry via the Shinjuku station.
