Three of us for dinner. Fun to try a new way of eating. The entrée choices included the lamb, the beef, and the vegetarian. Experimented with the sauces and seasonings to flavor the food.

We has a fantastic meal here! Didn't know what to expect at first, and came into the restaurant to see hibachi tables with pots of boiling water on them. The waiter brought fresh vegetables, meats, fish, etc. per your order for you to cook your own food. Instructions on how to do that were very specific and simple, and the process worked great. The meat was super tender, the fish was unbelievably fresh, and the vegetables were super soft and delicious. Ask for the Udaan noodles which you also cook and are great. If you drink, be sure to try their house Manhattan, which was one of the best I've ever had. They also brought a complimentary birthday desert for our table. It's a bit on the pricey side, but it's worth especially for a special occasion. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

Our first visit, waiter was friendly and described how it worked. Tried the combination platter. The beef, both the wagyu and the prime was very good. Also had two types of pork and shrimp. Plate came with a bowl of vegetables. The broth was prepared at the table, basically adding miso to the pot. Had both the regular and the spicy miso, creating two pots of broth. The broth was initially not very flavorful, but waiter brought additional miso to add, which made it much better. The meats were all very fresh, cut thin and cooked easily.

I recently celebrated my wedding anniversary with my children at King Shabu Shabu. The menu is based on the Chinese/Japanese nabemono hot pot dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables boiled in water. Their selection of steak, seafood, lamb, chicken and salmon is fresh and delicious, as is the selection of fresh locally grown vegetables. The condiments and seasoning they provided created a very unique broth after all of the meat and vegetables were cooked. The portions were very generous and the staff was helpful and accommodating.
They never hesitated in bringing us anything we requested at no additional charge. The service was excellent, and Ryan, the manager and his staff of Jon and Byn provided us with a wonderful first experience at a restaurant we plan on returning to often.

This was a Ramen lover's delight. Even our vegetarian son was well accommodated with a dinner fit for a potentate. Service is excellent, and the pace of it is perfect. Good for couples or family.
