“Nice surprise”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Shabu Shabu was a nice surprise. Two of shared an Asian Assortment of appetizers plus the Shabu Shabu itself. The food was very tasty and the service was good. Atmosphere was very comfortable and welcoming. We sat in the Tibet Room which was non-smoking and really nice. In hindsight we ordered too much food and could not finish everything. With 4 glasses of wine the total bill was just under 5,000 rubles.

“Expect nice food, good prices, challenging communication”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

We ate here twice and had different experiences. First time the waitress spoke good English and helped us choosing the best dishes, including some Mongalian food. Second time our waitress didn't speak much English, which made it really hard to communicate. However, the menu is in English and has some pictures.
Strange things was that all dishes were served separately and it took ages for us to get our drinks.. Which means that every time only one of us was eating while the other person was waiting for the next dish. And drink.. Not so nice.
However, we would recommend it though. The food and ambiance are nice. It is worth a try, especially if you are craving some nice warm Asian food. Prices are very reasonable!
