“Great shabu shabu”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The sauces here are really good. Meat quality is good but not great. Veggies are fresh. I come quite often as the deals are pretty good and food is great! Service can be slow at times but they are always pretty busy.

“You must try this place, a new experience...”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

My sister treated our family here on her birthday. We ordered their special, "buy one get one free" where each person gets a plate of thinly sliced Wagyu beef, a plate of mixed vegetables; a choice of broth & 2 dipping sauce. I highly recommend the pork miso broth (cost extra $3.00) comes spicy or regular. It taste better than the sukiyaki broth that comes with the order. You cook your food on the boiling broth, dipped in the sauce and enjoy. You also get a bowl of rice.

The place decor is nice, set up in a U-shaped with a contemporary feel. An exciting, and new experience.

“love shabu shabu”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

i regret throwing out my shabu shabu pot after my divorce. i love this kind of eating. the staff is great. you have to wait a while. the PARKING IS HORRIBLE in that side of town. for a minute it remind me of manhatten :-) the veggie combo has alot of food. the seafood combo tasty (per my husband) and the beef is tasty. hot saki to top off the meal! then green tea ice cream. yummy so if you see a GROUPON jump on it!

“Very creative Shabu Shabu”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Excellent Shabu Shabu place. Similar to what you'll find in Tokyo but for a lot less expensive. Great variety of meats, vegs, and broths. Will definitely return.
