Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

Ive been to the Berkeley Zabu Zabu several times. Always have a good time. What's not to like about all you can eat shabu shabu with small plates for $33. Tried several of the broths, the Sichuan spicy one is still my favorite. Had several plates of the prime ribeye, lamb and pork between 3 people.

The San Mateo restaurant has a nicer decor and easy parking. The service is attentive. We were asked several times if we wanted more meats, veggies or small plates brought to our table.

The only downsides are that they don't have their liquor license yet and the Yakitori grill is not yet available
