I have eaten at several expensive (JPY 8,000+) shabu shabu restaurants on several business occasions. For my family I was hoping for a more casual place, somewhat less expensive, but with good meat. Nabezo has an easy English-language reservations link on their website. You pre-select the course you want, from JPY 2,600 and up.
We selected the Japanese beef and pork at JPY4,600, but after arrival added the tongue for the Premium package at JPY5,000. The meals are all-you-can-eat for 1 hour 45 minutes. There are all-you-can-drink sets as well.
At Nabezo there is a vegetable bar from which you select the items you wish to cook in your pot, and also a small salad bar. Udon and somen noodles and rice have their own spot at the bar. And there are 4 kinds of sherbet, frozen yoghurt and ice cream for dessert.
We had more than enough meat (beef, pork and tongue) and the service was very nice; they will cook the first pieces of meat to show you how it's done. The atmosphere is pleasant and casual, with quite a few college students on the night we were there.
