Shabu-shabu
Shabu-Shabu is a type of Japanese cuisine that involves the diner cooking fresh, seasonal vegetables and thinly sliced meat in a steaming pot of water at their table. Traditionally, the primary meat cooked is beef, but modern cuisine has evolved to include other meats and seafood. At King Shabu Shabu, we serve several grades of premium beef, including Japanese A5 Wagyu; Berkshire pork; free-range chicken; lamb and a variety of seafood. Vegetables, rice, dipping sauces and noodles are served with each entrée.

Our full-service bar includes craft cocktails, draft beer, fine wine, chilled sake and the most extensive selection of Japanese whisky on the North Shore.

At King Shabu Shabu, we strive to give every customer a memorable dining experience. Come join us at the steamiest restaurant on the North Shore!

Not only do they have healthy tasty food, but the whole experience is an adventure. With a quiet ambiance, it's a great place to have a wonderful dinner and still hold a conversation. The sauces and flavors combined with the fun of the hot pots on your table make this a dining adventure. I can't wait to go back. Oh...they have awesome drinks, wine, and beer options too. And there's hot pots at every seat in the bar. Maybe next time I go I'll sit at the bar !

Absolutely delicious! Eating here was a fantastic experience, and I cannot wait to try all the other appetizers and cocktails (and also an incredible selection of Japanese whiskey). My favorite meats were the rib-eye (including real Japanese grade A5), sashimi-grade salmon, and the clams. When eating here for the first time, it may be a bit out of your comfort zone cooking your own meats at the table, but the servers there are very friendly and knowledgeable. They will guide you through everything you need to do. Eat here once or twice, and you'll be an expert after that. I look forward to coming again!

Our grandson asked us to take him here. It’s his new favorite restaurant. He’s eight years old. We loved it too!

I enjoyed it so much! Simple but so delicious. You cook your own dish in a pot of hot water. Seasonal vegetables and I had seafood. Next time I’ll try some beef.

Andy, the owner greeted us and served our first drink at the bar! He was so nice and welcoming.
The service (Liz and Andy) was awesome! They were very attentive and I truly enjoyed our conversations.
The meat and seafood were high quality.

We absolutely love this restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. It’s really fun to cook your food in your individual hot pot. The owners and manager are constantly checking on their customers making sure all their needs are being met. Shabu Shabu has been a favorite of ours for 25 years and it’s great to have an authentic restaurant near by. We plan to visit often.
