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.

Five stars for food but zero stars for music volume. We ate here for the first time as part of the Dine About promotion. The music was booming as we opened the door. We could hardly hear each other or the staff. Tables are situated inches apart. Because the music was so loud, everyone had to raise their voice to hear each other so we were privy to every conversation next to us. The saving grace of this experience was the food and the service. Every dish was wonderful, especially the caramelized black cod. The couple sitting next to us had the Hot Rock meat cooking experience. Unfortunately, my tablemate had to endure the smoke and smell of the cooking that blew directly in his face. I could hardly see him after a bit. We loved the food but it's just not worth having to shout at each other and be a part of someone else's dining experience and conversation.

Great food , if maybe too much salt - drank a gallon of water overnight . Great decor but way too noisy and the smoke from the hot rocks was so over powering ,made our eyes water and we all came out smelling of smoke . Service good .

We loved the food- the two of us tried the Shishito peppers and green beans, hamachi with jalapeños, kimoto roll and the special wagyu beef dumplings. Everything was delicious, our waitress was super nice and helpful. Music was fun in the bar but a little loud for talking.

We had the Japanese wagyu that you cook yourself on a hot rock. It was incredible. We also got a sushi roll and it was the best I've ever had.

On the open table description for this restaurant it mentions Covid-19 measures in place. Please note that none of these measures appeared to be in place- the restaurant was packed full (nowhere close to appropriate social distancing) and no one (including employees) was wearing a mask.

The food was mediocre. While Utah isn’t known for sushi, I’ve had better sushi at several places around the Salt Lake area. The sushi here was not worth $20+ per roll. We had three rolls, an appetizer, and one adult beverage and the total was $117. If the food was knock your socks off good, I wouldn’t bat an eye at the price. For mediocre food, it was overpriced. Mediocre food and lack of Covid measures aside, our server was very nice. That said, we won’t be going back here, especially while Covid cases are still high and no safety measures appeared to be in place.

Reviews prepared us for this place to be quirky, but the food was mediocre. We had a couple good rolls, but then our last "order" for two basic rolls, took almost 30 minutes to serve, and they seemed like an afterthought, with minimal seafood. And this was an $18 Rainbow roll! Our ultimate opinion was over priced with mixed opinion on the food. If it wowed us, price would have been justified but just not there.

Basement restaurant with loud sound system. Good Asian Fusion dishes at premium prices and Sushi at regular prices. A contemporary Mad Max decor but why? Bar with sports TV at end of restaurant, again why,

Server was fantastic very good sake recommendation food was exquisite sushi better than I remember from my last visit. At first we were seated in a corner a few feet away from another couple which was awkward but luckily we were able to get a little more space after asking.

This restaurant was a total disappointment. The sushi rolls were not up to par with sushi rolls from other restaurants. We dined earlier (6:15 pm) and the food took for ever to arrive. The hostess was nice and that was the only positive. The address of the restaurant shows up as being on Main Street, however, when we got to the location we had to come in through the kitchen since the front of the restaurant was on the back street.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Park City. We come here a couple of times a month while we are here for the summers.
Food is outstanding, the service is always great and it’s lots of fun to be out in this fun tasty restaurant.

Of course, we will be back

Food and server were okay. Had to sit inside since outdoor patio was reserved. Way too crowded inside, tables on top of each other, people standing over our table yelling and laughing…. not good during a pandemic. No servers or bartenders wearing masks. I love Park City, but apparently folks think they’re exempt here, no concern for staff or patrons. Too bad.

A waitress dropped a glass next to us, going all over our diaper bag. They did not apologize or seem to care that they scared our baby. They then cranked the music to 11, pretty much ruining a good family dinner. For a Sunday afternoon, I would recommend Shabu to a college student, not a family.

Really disappointing. First, in order to make reservations they require you to make a deposit. But, when we arrived we were told we had to wait for an available table. What’s the point of a reservation if you have to wait for a table??? We waited 25 minutes past our reservation time until we were seated… outside… when it was getting dark… and they had no outdoor lighting… plus we observed two empty tables the entire time we were there which makes us wonder why we waited 25 minutes to get our table if there were empty tables. We ended up asking to be sat inside because it was so dark we could barely see our food. The portions of food were tiny for the price and lacked any creativity or flavor. The restaurant didn’t even offer any concessions to us either for making us wait… and we had to pay for an extra hour of parking too because of them. Our server was nice, that was the only highlight.

Shabu is a must stop whenever we are in Park City. Firecracker Shrimp and Miso Black Cod are the best!
