I thoroughly enjoyed the novelty of cooking my own assortment of tissue-thin beef and crispy fresh vegetables at Shabu Shabu. Everything tasted so fresh, and despite furtive glances around the counter to "see how everyone else was doing it", it was a memorable dining experience.

We stopped by at Shabu Shabu with some co-workers as it came highly recommended for a business lunch. This is a great place to entertain friends or clients. From the time we sat down to the time we ordered and received our food and drinks was less than 7 mins. That is very important when going anywhere for lunch during business hours. The presentation of the food was fantastic. I loved the idea of mixing in my own ingredients and cooking the meat myself. I had the large rib- eye plate which was the perfect size and not too filling. Be careful because the meat cook quickly. You could tell the rib-eye was premium meat because of the marbleization and how buttery it taste when eating. This is by far one of the best and most reasonably priced meals I have had for a business lunch. I could not have been happier with my experience and will surely return the next time I am in the LA area.

Family style. You need to put your bane on the list - need to be punctual - if you aren't there when your name is called, you miss your turn.

Enjoyed the meal. Was stuffed and satisfied - can highly recommend. Meal was around 20 dollars a head

This is a very busy restaurant so you will want to show up early and be patient with getting a table. Sign the waiting list, wander around the nearby shops. Very good food, packed with locals.
