About Shabu Japanese Fondue
Traditional Japanese cuisine and the first of its kind to open its door in Midtown Sacramento. Shabu-shabu is a Japanese dish that is cooked and eaten at the table. The dish is prepared by submerging a piece of delicately sliced meat or fresh vegetables in a pot of your favorite savory broth. Swishing it back and forth several times to cook, the familiar swishing sound is where the dish gets its name because shabu-shabu directly translates to 'swish-swish'. Healthy and flavorful, shabu-shabu is a common dish that allows family and friends to cook, eat and spend time together in this ever changing fast-pace lifestyle.

Shabu Japanese Fondue Ratings and Reviews
It was our first Shabu experience - It was great. Simple foods tasted great and you can't cook anything wrong. Staff was great and we really enjoyed ourselves. Plus cooking your own food and eating with chop sticks changes the pace of the meal making it slower and more enjoyable.
what a relief when a young man was assigned to be our main server instead of that lady at the desk.Goma and Citrus Ponzu - were good.Broths weren't flavorful.Kobe and Lamb didn't look fresh at all.the meat stuck to the plate and we ended up shoving everything to the pot all at once.true enough,it did not taste fresh at all.vanilla ice cream came with the meal.Their website is not updated so do not expect any of their starters, curry or sushi ala carte. service is kinda' slow - seems like the server is also the one doing all the kitchen work. if you want a parking closer to the restaurant, street parking is available.
The service was horrible. We asked for hot tea and it came to us lukewarm. We had to ask them to microwave it. Once our meal came, the rice was hard and burnt. It was actually light brown, obviously left over from the day before. The food itself, except the rice, was okay, but not enough to return. We were really disappointed. Won't be going back!
