A friend of ours who lives locally took us to this restaurant. While I was impressed with the quality of the food and the service we received, this is not a cheap restaurant. Particularly considering the amount of food you get, this is definitely a quality over quantity type of place.

Brings back memory of Japan, (but somehow lacking authenticity) tables are for a maximum of 12, so larger groups get split up. Taste is good and a fun experience for all. I think caters to a young crowed, nice decor and the wait staff at one point offers Lychee sake and latter on sake bombs..

Fun experience for kids. Delicious beef. Big veggie portion, makes you very full. Very clean restaurant. They have an option of white rice or brown rice, which surprised me.

This place is really crowded with people. I waited about half hour or more. The foods taste fine, but price is way expensive.

I have been coming to King Shabu Shabu for over a year now, and just love coming to this place. Like people have mentioned in other comments, the restaurant is clean but small. They have 3 tables, but plenty of counter style seating. The service is quick and they are constantly checking to see if your pot is boiling at... More

Stopped in with friends on a recommendation from my son. Located in a Strip Mall the interior is interesting and very clean. No one in our group had ever dined in a Shabu Shabu restaurant. The waiter was patient and helpful. All our selections were very good and the experience was fun.

If you like Shabu Shabu, you will really like this small restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff is very helpful. It's small and not much on comfort, but the food quality makes up for any shortcomings in environment

Excellent - Read the other 5 star reviews - Thay are accurate. Great service. Really good food. Remember to hold your soba until the end, and they will bring the soup base.
