Sushi
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.

We love Shabu! This is one of our favorite restaurants in the world. Kevin and Bob have the perfect storm of amazing food, great service and wonderful ambiance. I am hesitant to share about this place, as I want to keep it all to myself, but they deserve the accolades!

Very cool atmosphere and vibe with a small sushi bar tucked down underground. The atmosphere was a happy one with cool welded artwork and stone walls. Kevin, the owner, was very friendly and personable. His brother was the chef and everything that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. We ordered several plates for the table and each one had unique flavors. Highly recommend this restaurant. Our kids loved the food as well.

The shabu shabu was very good, better than I'd expected, pretty authentic. The restaurant is very small so crowded and noisy. Pricey.

Food great. The place is so crowded and loud because of that basically forget conversation. They sat us at the front table with people waiting right behind us! Bad choice. If a table of six had to be so crowded don't put it at the front door. Our waiter was stressed out, rude at the outset and came around at the end. They were out of two of four sakes. So go for the food and hope for the rest to be fixed. Ps I would try it again!

Nice in town location with delicious food, great ambiance, great service and Saki! We lucked out and parked in back and got to go thru the kitchen to get to dining room. Staff was all pleasant and enjoying their work. Lots of food with a nice reasonable price, especially the sushi. Yum.

We had such a fun time at Shabu on Saturday night. We loved sitting at the bar and our server (Tim) was fantastic and the food and drinks were fantastic. We especially loved the ambiance when someone invited a marachi band in to play and everyone started cheering and singing along. Overall it was a fabulous night!

Ambiance and service at Shabu we excellent and really could not have been any better. Everyone from the hostess to the server to the buser was extremely friendly and really took good care of us. However, the food, which came out hot and quick, was underwhelming, especially when paired with the inflated Sundance prices. So a Sundance bowl of ramen WAS $34 and our 3 piece chicken skewer was $19, among other exorbitant prices. Everywhere is like that so it’s not just Shabu, but we were also just not that impressed with the flavors of everything we tried. I probably wouldn’t go here again but then again there is not much else in the way of Asian food in town

The food was great. Loved our waitress. The hostess could have said kindly that there are people waiting on tables but instead made a passive aggressive comment that soured our experience.

Fantastic meal! We sat at the bar during Sundance and enjoyed some of the specials as well as chatting with the bartenders. Fun night. Great food. Enjoyed every bite and eyed the "hot rock" for next time. We will definitely return!

We’ve been going to Park City for the last 14 years every ski season. We eat out every night and we’re always trying new places. Shabu is hands down the coolest atmosphere and best food we’ve had in Park City. Our waitress maybe named Brianne(can’t remember) was fantastic, paid very close attention and had great recommendations. Wonderful experience. I would recommend to any and all.

Went for our anniversary and we set up a reservation knowing it’s Sundance weekend. The overall experience was good but for the price of the food it was overpriced. I ordered Tempura shrimp rolls, those were good but nothing special and I also ordered the pork ribs which were a little dry. The service was good! Just for the price the food could’ve been A LOT better

Our group of 7 had a wonderful time. Some people were reluctant to order 'family' style, so we each ordered our own selection(s). Once the food arrived, it all looked delicious and beautifully presented. Everyone wanted tastes and started sharing.

Shabu is in the basement of the building and you may find yourself a bit sardined into your table with little privacy from your neighbors, but we got lucky with a hightop and football/tv screen view. Our initial waiter Jack was... well Jack, so we were thrilled that Jordan took over who was amazing with his service and fun demeanor.
