Great shabu shabu with a lot of package choices including different broths. Great setup where 2 people can have separate broths.

My eight year old niece told me I just had to try this restaurant. We were a party of four. I liked the idea of self cooking and sharing. The only thing I would have liked some different veggies. I did not think they complimented...More
