A word from Shabu
When long time local Kevin Valaika convinced his brother, Head Chef Robert, to come to Park City three years ago, they had one thing on their mind: skiing Utah's famous powder, and combining their many years of experience with Asian cuisine to create a unique dining experience for Park City locals and visitors. Their dream comes to you at Shabu, where they offer a freestyle blend of their favorite Asian cuisine; exciting and nourishing weary skiers from all over the world.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We always order the gyoza (chef's creation) and my husband loves the Shabu Shabu. You just can't go wrong with anything on the menu."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Shabu was excellent. The firecracker shrimp was outstanding as was the sushi & dim sum. The hotrock beef was a show not to miss and was equally tasty. We can't wait to return!!!"

  • "Brought some friends from out of town to SHABU for dinner and it was fantastic as always. It's my families favorite restaurant (kids 9 and 11) and we try to hit it a couple times a year. We're never dissapointed and love their new additions to the menu. We try different small plates and apps every time but the main entree' of the Black Cod is the best fish you'll ever have! I love sushi but am not a huge "cooked fish" guy and I can't get enough of this stuff!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Been several times. Will go any chance I get. Food is amazing! Firecracker Shrimp should probably be regulated substance to prevent addiction. I recommend to my foodie friends from all over the world who are headed to Park City and receive universal thanks for turning them on to this gem."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Shabu is a special place. There are a variety of special sushi rolls that are all substantial in taste and size. The appetizers from the Yellowtail with jalapeño to the Asian Caprese and the Rock shrimp all rival any NY restaurant. The hot entrees are all flavorful as well. Their number one server, Riley enhances the dining experience. A must stop for foodies visiting Park City."

  • "I recently moved to UT from the Central NJ/NYC area and really miss the fresh fish and amazing sushi. Shabu cures all my sushi and eclectic food cravings. My husband and I get there whenever we can. Servers are super nice. Food is just amazing."

  • "I have not been to Shabu since it was located across the street, my memory was overpriced but nice atmosphere. We decided to try it again for a special occasion. Bad choice. Worst atmosphere of any restaurant I have ever been to. Low ceilings did not help muffle the screeching screaming drunken patron's cacophony. Waiter said this noise level was the usual, not just an unlucky exception. We couldn't even hear each other above the noise. My dish came without the described teriyaki sauce or rice, was basically a piece of grilled chicken and grilled vegetables ridiculously overpriced- healthy but no flavor. Appetizer was good. Atmosphere made us want to pay the check quickly and leave. chance of ever going back is zero."

  • "Our whole family loves Shabu, even the 7 year old! No chicken tenders for her, she wants Firecracker Shrimp instead! Our server, Chewie, took great care to make sure we had everything we needed. It is the one restaurant we must go to when in PC!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Of the 4 things we tried to order, 2 had been taken off the menu, which meant last minute scrambling to find something else. We sat outside, and while the staff was very friendly, they weren't very attentive. We had to ask someone clearing tables to please find our waiter so we could order. The food was tasty, but the whole experience felt very overpriced by the end. We felt they were charging for service and ambience that they didn't provide."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "When my family gets together - the 4 of us will readily choose Shabu. I like to bring out of town guests there and when it's just my husband and I - this is the place. It always delivers a great meal out."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Special attention from the owner, bartender, and server. Aimee was knowledgable about the food and successfully steered us towards the delicious ahi tuna special. Never a problem to bring my teen daughter."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Great seafood and unusual treats here. Cozy and unique atmosphere."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "When we first entered Shabu we were a bit surprised at how crowded the tables were in terms of having a "quiet" dinner. For the most part the tables are in long rows and very close. We found that once we were seated our server was very pleasant and responsive to anything we requested.The food was great and the continuing service made dinner very enjoyable. The food came quickly and everyone raved about their dinner and shared bites! We will go back to this restaurant again!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Fun menu and unique cocktails. Great service and fascinating interior design. Surprised that expensive salmon sashimi was tough and gristly, but all the other dishes were excellent."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Been going to Shabu every year for the past 5 years....my favorite spot in Park City"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "If you like traditional sushi, the sashimi is the way to go. The Hamachi is outstanding. The Volcano Roll is delicious. And from the large hot plates the Miso Cod is really good - it's great for sharing too. We're already planning what to get the next time we go."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Just awesome. We eat here each year when we come skiing."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We love Shabu, it is a must for every visit to Park City!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "This is better than Nobu (all three in New York and one in Hong Kong). We walked out after dining at Shabuas as happy as we always feel after dining frequently at Per Se, Bernardin and The French Laundry. My only regret is not knowing about Shabu earlier."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Main menu items and drinks were spot on but sushi rolls were not tight and had too much rice."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Great food, maybe best in town... service is great, but very small space. High energy, loud and seating is very tight. Would not recommend it for a romantic dinner or special occasion."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "This restaurant is down a narrow flight of stairs from the street. People are cooking food at their tables and the place is consequently filled with greasy smoke. As far as we could tell, there is absolutely no ventilation. Our server, while very nice, was completely checked out. Some items of our order never arrived and our appetizers came well after our main courses. The California roll tasted like cat food- some unidentifiable minced "crab". The other food was pretty mediocre as well. It was expensive and dinner took almost two hours. I would never go here again."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Shabu remains our favorite restaurant destination in Park City...always excellent service and the menu has something for everyone. We had a large group and the wait staff kept on top of everything. As always, we ordered the Shabu Shabu, others in our group raved about the cod and seafood clay pot special. If you go, you must order the dim sum...the chef's creation is always delicious."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Great food. Good service. Nigiri, pot stickers and sake were delicious."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Two of us shared four small plates, Yellowfin sashimi, Volcano sushi, Potstickers, Firecracker shrimp. Each dish was better than the last. Getting reservations here was easy but should be impossible given the quality of the food. Perhaps the best Japanese restaurants I have eaten at outside of Japan."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Tasty sushi rolls and egg foo young. Really sweet server who paid good attention to us."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I have eaten at shabu twice now and it is the absolute best restaurant in Park City. The firecracker shrimp, dim sum, potstickers and hot rock beef were all big favorites. The party of nine including picky children loved the meal. The atmosphere was great as well as all the waiters and waitresses. Also try the saki and black cod! The chef is amazing and oersonable and helps serve your meals. This Texan recommends this restaurant highly!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Would like to re-emphasis, the food was great, the service attentive and knowledgable. I will certainly be back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I don't mind spending some cash at a place that has amazing food. Unfortunately, Shabu has good food (not great) and a decent atmosphere. The prices of the entrees need to be slashed $10 across the board. Too costly for what you get. Sides need to be slashed by 50% ($8 for edamame ?!?) catch my drift? I think diners chalk up the experience as a one-time shot during their stay at Park City, but there is no way wise people will be paying these prices as repeating guests. The food was good, and our server was very nice. The owner is quirky but efficient. There are many other options in the area at a much better value. So if you're good with parting with your hard-earned cash and have a less-than-memorable experience...go ahead."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food here was amazing and the staff couldn't have been more hospitable. Although this is not really a place for children, we went to a really early dinner with a 2 1/2 year old. The owner was there and was so nice to us. He couldn't have been nicer to our child. More importantly, the food was literally amazing. Shabu had the best seaweed salad I have ever had. The sushi was delicious too. I would eat there every day if I could."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I had a very bad experience. I made the reservation well in advance and requested a nice table. When a arrived, I was told they don't give table for 1 person, only at the bar. Nobody told me about in advance. Even so, with a reservation, I had to wait for more than 20 minutes to be seated at the bar. My night was ruined."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "When we walked in with our party of 7 it was obviously busy. We were still seated very quickly. The waitress was at our table within a couple minutes and provided very good service. The food here is always consistently great. The rock shrimp, blistered beans, sashimi, etc. are so good here."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Our group of 4 shared a few small plates and several large plates. Everything was very tasty but my favorites were the blistered beans, coconut crusted tofu and the ribs. Service was great and prices reasonable. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Service, food, all were great. From lamb chops to sushi, they did it all,well."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Enjoyed 2 out of three of the items we ordered. One of the rolls was a combination of himachi, tuna & salmon with lime, pineapple, & jalapeno. The taste was nice but too many ingredients for one roll. The tuna tataki was out of this world. We also ordered a spicy tune roll that was very bland. All the fish tasted exceedingly fresh. It's a very small place and unfortunately we were seated in back by the kitchen door...maybe we were in the kitchen!!!! Very noisy between the pots & pans, cash register. But our server Freddy was very attentive."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Asian food (sushi, hot stone beef, hot pots, etc.). Very inventive and delicious sushi rolls. Firecracker shrimp is to die for. Been almost every year on ski trip - always a foodie highlight, never had a dish that was not superb. The bill will be large, but worth it."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We take our group to Shabu every year when we visit Park City. Be prepared for the right atmosphere, and you will love it: Excellent food. Small space. Great decor. Loud celebratory crowd. It's like your basketball team just won the ACC but with excellent food."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Awesome as always when we come to town. Food...wait staff and decor one of the best in Park City."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "We especially enjoyed the hot pot. The sushi was excellent and there were some creative combinations. Over President's Day weekend, we ate here, Zoom and Grappa. Although all were excellent, Shabu was our favorite. During ski season, definitely book at least 2 weeks in advance."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "My wife, our daughter, and I decided to dine at Shabu twice in three nights. My "guy" trip is next, and we always hit Shabu twice."
