    Great for groups! Can get prime rib for $27/person for dinner which includes salad, rice, vegetables, and ice cream. Def make a reservation - even with one you might have to wait for a lil.

    Prime rib eye shabu shabu for 2 is 27 usd / person and it is a MUST TRY. Also green tea flavored ice cream is amazing. The stuff is very friendly. Hope to come back soon!

    If you've never had shabu, this is yet another interesting E 10th Japanese spot to check. Shabu shabu = thin sliced meat cooked in boiling water, sukiyaki = thin...cooked in soy base, yakiniku = grill

    The best time to go eat in this place is during the lunch special. No reservation needed, no crowds, pretty quiet and relaxing while enjoying $16.00 shabu shabu for each. No rush in finishing!!!

    Traditional Japanese setting. Very good food. Lunch special is only $24 for two, coming with the best green tea ice cream ever

    Love this spot! Been here several times and the food is always on point. Just a warning though the place is not very big so might be tough to fit a big group in.

    The prime rib eye for shabu shabu is an extra $2/person (for lunch, at least), but it's so worth it! Meat is a lot more tender than the regular rib eye that you could get.

    prime ribeye shabu shabu is a must. swirl it in the pot for about 2-3 seconds for the most perfect, medium rare, melt-in-your-mouth bite of meat. oh! and add extra scallions and radish to the ponzu sa

    Can't go wrong w the prime rib eye shabu shabu. Add a side of beef tongue (sliced thin for a meaty lettuce crisp) and the snow crab too if it's still in season.

    Prime rib shabu shabu is delicious. If you don't feel like going through the whole hot pot thing, the pork kimchee bibimbap: holy smokes. So good.

    Legit Japanese Shabu-Shabu, sukiyaki, Nabe place -- coming from someone that grew up in Japan. The bar next door is also owned by the same owner!

    The shabu-shabu is terrific, but the real star here is the bibimbap. I'm Korean, and they have one of THE BEST bibimbaps around. Intensely flavorful, it's hard to share.

    Prime ribeye shabu $27. House sake both cold and warm are nice and only $6!

    Prime rib eye shabu is good, but you have to do the pork belly appetizer (pictured) and the bibimbap.

    There's usually an hour wait before 9:30pm but when you get in, shabu shabu with prime rib-eye is the way to go. Don't throw it all in at once, half the beauty is having everything freshly hot.

    All 6 of us got the prime beef shabu shabu. It's clean, healthy, tasty, and comforting, but a wee pricey

    If you wear glasses avoid the corner tables if you can. The shabu pot will steam them up like crazy.
