Having not experienced Shabu style cuisine before I was a bit confused at first...however the staff were great...explained in broken English/Lao what to do ....it is a very communal eating style and made much more enjoyable if you have a group of people eating together...food is cooked at the table and it is a lazy and sociable means of eating :)

Sabaidee Shabu Shabu opened recently and is great value for money. For the main buffet you sit at a bench with a conveyor of many small bowls passing you by with various freshly prepared meats, veg, noodles, dumplings and seafood & river fish. You cook them in a heated pan of soup in front of you and there is a choice of soup bases - tom yam, chicken, etc
In addition to this there is a cold buffet with meats, kim chi, a salad bar, and a desert buffet with thai sweets and ice cream. Unlimited soft drinks are included.
The price is 79,000kip, about $10, and there is a 80 minute time limit, but this is more than enough time to eat all you want. Most buffet places make money by adding extra for drinks, ice & handtowels but here 79,000 includes everything - no hidden extras.
Well worth a try
