    We made it time for our reservation and the food was great. However, I'm taking one star off because we were held up by ladies filing a complaint in front of the line. That's not on you guys, but my fiance and I had to wait for like 6-7 minutes.

    This place used to be one of my favorite places to go, but last few times has been disappointing. 1) it’s freezing inside, make you shiver if you are just seating there a wait. Very unpleasant experience. Even after we asked them to shut off the AC it’s no use. Still on. It’s 50 degrees outside and inside is colder than outside. 2) I am usually a very generous tipper. But I get very put off when they put a 18% servece sharge and then ask you to tip on top of this. Tipping is voluntary and all depends on the service. I trip on the service, not tip Tax and service charges! I had a great service and I would have tipped her more than what they asking but that bill just give me a very bad taste. When things are voluntary then the restaurant should Homer that, but not impose on their customers. 3) they run out of meat that’s supposed to be on the menu. It’s a set price. If you want the customer to pay, then provide the food. If you don’t have them, then give a discount. Right? No. They charge full price but then impose a 18% service fee and then ask you to add more tip! One word: GREEDY!

    We had reservations, was there on time or a bit early. They seated other people before us and we waited over 10 mins past our reservation. It wasn’t awful, just a bit disorganized. We love it though and will be back soon.

    The quality of the cuts were fantastic. The self serving vegetable table has plenty of veggies and tofus. The curry rice was phenomenal. The service was great. Definitely a must visit for anyone looking for quality shabu at reasonable price.

    I like this place. It’s reasonable to be able to eat as much as we want. Their shabu shabu meat is always good as well as the soup and sauce. The variety of the vegetables, other stuff such as curry and rice are extra bonus. The atmosphere and location are good too. It’s just chilly where we sat down and the time limit rushed us. Overall it’s great.

    Our table for 7 was ready in less than 5 minutes, our waiter brought more plates of meat as we requested and the choice of meat was wonderful. The only downside was that we had to flag our waiter down when we wanted more meat, but he was always cheerful in bringing us more.

    My server seemed very new. I understand she’s trying but I had to flagged down multiple people for some service. It was kinda disappointing since it’s an ayce and ordering shouldn’t be a task to flag people down. She really seem flustered. I think she had too many tables and couldn’t focus on service on all of them.

    Not happy with the extended wait time even though I booked a reservation for seating. Staff did not clean many immediately tables-lots of stacked dirty dishes from previous diners-tables could have been turned over faster. They claimed they had to sanitize the tables. Many of the waiters were standing in the back gossiping in the prep room instead of out in the floor helping customers or standing by the cashier/front desk. One specific women-I was not happy with her service-cold and rude vibe. Need to retrain staff and turnover tables faster-loosing out on potential revenue. Beef curry this time was watery and they looked like they ran out of specific veggies they usually have. Quality has gone down since my last visit a few months back.

    I wish I can remember our hostess/server's name. She was fabulous!!! So polite, non-intrusive, yet very attentive - perfect! Next time I will ask for some warm water to dilute the sweetness of the sukiyaki sauce. I love their curry!

    Fun interactive meal experience! Meats were fresh and many of the veggies and other sides were exotic to me so it was fun learning and eating. We had two both and sukiyaki broth highly recommended. The drinks unusual pretty and was really good.

    meat is good quality, veggie variety is ok, but enough, I like pork better than beef, the drink now cost a bit, but worth it, the soup base usually not the strong part, the sauces are still the best
