Hubby and I came here for dinner.
I had the wagyu shabu shabu and he had a steak dinner set. We had a really lovely server who spoke no English so I used Google Translate to fill in the gaps.
My appetizers consisted of several items, a couple of which I had no idea what I was eating but it was all tasty. Hubby enjoyed his steak. I loved my shabu shabu. While it's true you only got 3 - 4 pieces of meat, they were large in size. The wagyu was fabulous! One of the best wagyu that I've had (and I've eaten a lot of wagyu during my numerous trips to Japan). All in all, the food was great and the service was awesome. It's not an inexpensive meal but well worth the splurge. I just wish there was a Moritaya in NYC.

Me n my wife try here based on review. I ain't cheap but 6000 something yen for three slice of Wagyu meat is not what I had envision. We order the shabu shabu and it was all that great. We had better shabu shabu else where. Spend 13000 yen and still hungry on the way out...

Famous for its sukiyaki, which my friend correctly ordered. Was hungry for a bigger portion of beef, so ordered a steak. Not a bad steak but it was a disappointment given everything else was perfect, the view from the window-facing tables of the Kyoto Tower and the city, the cool atmosphere with kimono-clad waitresses, the attentive service and the reasonable prices for the setting.

Morita ya was known for best sukiyaki and shabu shabu in Kyoto... finally got the chance to visit with my family.

We choosed the medium price for the shabu shabu set(around ¥5000/pax) and was an excellent choice...the beef was so melted and tender with good amount of portion. The set comes with rice,miso soup, appetizer and small dessert....will definitely comeback again! Ahhh not to forget the nice view while having ur shabu shabu.
