Nice shabu shabu place with high quality meat. Really large tables so they can accomodate really large groups. And a happy hour from 4-6 to save $$!

The setup is perfect for large group gathering. We have eight adults and 4 kids. They set us up perfectly. They allow reservation. So we had no issues there. All you can eat is $35 pp or $25 plus drinks. We had traditional and ginger soup base. We ordered many dishes of pork, beef plus veggies. Everything is fresh. They also offer lamb and chickens. The variety of condiments at each table is plenty to mix source of your own liking. The service is excellent. We also ordered sake and Kirin beer to top off the wonderful meal in a wonderful setting

Shabu House is a short drive from the hotels near SFO Airport. It described itself as "japanese beef fondue". It is basically a hot pot meal. Lots and lots of delicious food -- huge vegetable plate, platter of thinly sliced meat (choice of meat. we had lamb and beef), rice, a variety of sauces, etc. -- all cooked by you in a pot of boiling water (different flavor alternatives available). The mixture of tastes and textures is fantastic. The meal comes in "regular" and "large". We were quite satisfied with regular. Service is great. We had never been before, and Andrea took time to explain and coach us during the process. Parking is a bit hard to come by for a weekend support, but there are public lots nearby and you can troll the streets. Chose "next available" to avoid a wait.

Came here on a weeknight, after 8pm and we had to wait a bit for the table - seems crowded even that late on a weeknight.

Pretty straight forward menu - just choose the meat and the soup! The rest comes standard!

I thought the meat portions were reasonably large, larger than some other shabu places. Vegetable portions were standard though, nothing special. We had their spicy miso and ginger soup - I thought both soups were underwhelming, a bit watered down. The ponzu sauce was too sourish for me (and I eat raw green mangoes and pickles for fun) while the sesame/peanut sauce was quite nutty and sweet.

Service was helpful and nice, when you could get their attention - I would estimate perhaps 1 server short for the size of the restaurant.

Overall, ok place to eat but there are better shabu-shabu places around.
