Been eating at this estabalishment for at least 5 years now. I was introduced to this type of food through a friend. It's so good. I usually get their lunch specials and it does fill you up. Shabu shabu is always perfect for lunch or...More

After looking around at several other area places, we wandered into this place, we were fortunate to find seating as by the time we left, the place was packed, we arrived at about 6. The pricing seems about average from what I can gather from...More

Contrary to another review, this is very typically Japanese, I went there with a friend who lived in Japan for 5 years and she confirmed this. One order is plenty for a person, I'd even say shareable. Tip: drink the resulting soup in the end!

If you have eaten real Shabu Shabu in Japan, you'll know this place is not very authentic. Quality, Taste, Umami, Ingredients, Tare (dipping source), etc about everything.

Very delicious and the service was impeccable! We asked for a few modifications to the menu and they did what they could. Very friendly and the kobe beef was absolutely wonderful!

It was such a great food, the egg sauce was incredibly fresh. The meat was just amazing and the server was nice. A little over priced but still worth it!

this is a cook your-own-food-in-a-pot-in-front-of-you kind of place, but the broth was watery and we didn't really get any "instructions" on how to eat it...ie, what do we use for the raw meat, etc. the place next door gyu-taku is much better!
