The whole experience was just awesome! The quality of the food was great and the staff very friendly. Everything was very clear and available in English. You can say it's a little bit pricey (not exaggerated pricey) but it's more than normal for the quality and the service! I highly recommend it!

I went to Shinsaibashi branch with my family. Haven't seen any tourist here, even it's on dinner time. Everyone has their own shabu pot and have to order 1 set per person or else you will have to order one drink. Normally sesame is not my thing, but i heard this place is famous for it so i give it...

We were staying at the nearby Hotel Hankyu International and decided to remain close for dinner. The hotel recommended this place as close, casual, and not taking reservations. The restaurant is a diamond-shade bat that has a hot pot for each chair. I tried the upgrade for the beef (some type of black beef but not Kobe). The meal started... More

we tried the beef shabu-shabu course and the pork/beef shabu-shabu course. The menu provides a very detailed description to how to eat shabu-shabu. The course is a 4-course meal, starting with veggies, then meat, udon and lastly almond ice-cream for dessert. Lovely experience. But a bit overpriced.

You just have to try shabu-shabu when travelling through Japan... a delicious hot pot of meat and veg, cooked in boiling water and then dipped in a selection of tasty sauces. We dined at the Shinsaibashi Shabutei - very easy to find from the train station. This is a really enjoyable and cheap culinary experience, so do yourself a favour... More

Clean shabu shop with big shabu pot. Attentive, service-minded staff served us generously. Special saseme soup with great taste. Recommend!

One of the best Shyabu Shyabu that I have ever been to, greatly recommended, especially the pork and beef shyabu, that gives a bit of a different taste to this great Japanese dish!

This is not the Best Shabu-Shabu restaurant you could find in Japan for sure. However, I also would say you could not have this quality of Shabu-Shabu elsewhere with this price for sure. The beef quality is superb. It's the same as in premium Shabu-Shabu restaurants. Please visit this restaurant if you are not a food expertise or you are... More
