We decided to go this restaurant as there were a lot of us. Choosing a buffet style restaurant was the right move. Hygiene was not an issue, there was not often a shortage of food available to get from the buffet. Service was good - plates and pots were taken away from the table without too much of a wait. Overall good restaurant.

Very nice dining experience. With everyone having their own pot, you don't have to worry much about spreading germs! Food variety could have been much better though.

We decided to give this restaurant a try during a recent stay in Brisbane. We found it advertised in the "Dining out Brisbane" guide.
We went on a saturday night and arrived early as we didn't have a booking so we got a table. I would recommend booking on busy nights. The nightly buffet was $29.90 and lunch $19.90 (cheaper for children). The staff were very friendly and made you welcome and explained how the buffet / hot pots work.
The atmosphere is modern, clean, fresh and friendly. Food is displayed beautifully and everything is good quality. Sushi was amazing, rice cooked perfectly and fillings were tasty. Cooking your hot pot at the table was great with a fast to heat hotplate for each person. There are 3 soup bases to choose from, vegetarian, fish and thai. There is a large selection of prawns, mussels, squid, pork, beef, tofu, fish balls, assorted vegetables, large choice of noodles and other choices for your stock. There is also an assortment of ready cooked hot meals. There is a good selection of wine and alcohol.
This restaurant is located on Mary street and is an easy walk from Queen street and worth the few minutes to walk there. It is upstairs so look for the sign.

Shabuhouse is a little off the beaten track in Central Brisbane, we found it advertised in a magazine, we had a wonderful dinner, eldest son described it as his best meal ever, enjoying the self cooking in the stock pots. We went here and their sister restaurant, a Korean barbecue which was nearly as good, both highly recommendable.
