The restaurant is a little tucked away in an ugly corner, but once inside the atmosphere is cordial and nice. English menu available and staff most helpful. The process is simple : get some plum wine on arrival, choose your meat, boil it with the vegetables, followed by udong noodles - finish with ice cream. It is all delicious, although... More

What can I say? I don't have to describe the place or explain what 'shabu shabu' is, since many people have already done so. (Also, dear TripAdvisor people: can we finally have styled text in our reviews?) We had the Jumbo Kobe beef meal, with the incredibly marbleized beef. It was a hefty amount, and I was pleasantly stuffed (as... More

We were greeted and served by very polite and friendly staff. They had English menu available in which we ordered the large portion beef set and the black beef set. Our set came with plum liquor, veggies, beef, udon and ice cream. There was an evident difference in the beef loin and black beef. The black beef was more fatty,... More

The whole experience was just awesome! The quality of the food was great and the staff very friendly. Everything was very clear and available in English. You can say it's a little bit pricey (not exaggerated pricey) but it's more than normal for the quality and the service! I highly recommend it!

I went to Shinsaibashi branch with my family. Haven't seen any tourist here, even it's on dinner time. Everyone has their own shabu pot and have to order 1 set per person or else you will have to order one drink. Normally sesame is not my thing, but i heard this place is famous for it so i give it...

We were staying at the nearby Hotel Hankyu International and decided to remain close for dinner. The hotel recommended this place as close, casual, and not taking reservations. The restaurant is a diamond-shade bat that has a hot pot for each chair. I tried the upgrade for the beef (some type of black beef but not Kobe). The meal started... More

we tried the beef shabu-shabu course and the pork/beef shabu-shabu course. The menu provides a very detailed description to how to eat shabu-shabu. The course is a 4-course meal, starting with veggies, then meat, udon and lastly almond ice-cream for dessert. Lovely experience. But a bit overpriced.

You just have to try shabu-shabu when travelling through Japan... a delicious hot pot of meat and veg, cooked in boiling water and then dipped in a selection of tasty sauces. We dined at the Shinsaibashi Shabutei - very easy to find from the train station. This is a really enjoyable and cheap culinary experience, so do yourself a favour... More
