I eat this kind of food regularly in Los Angeles, and this place serves authentic delicious Shabu Shabu. The Japanese Kobe was absolutely divine, and the dipping sauces are fresh and delicious. I would definitely eat here again if I am in the area. Loved it. Excellent dinner.

Been coming back for 3 yrs now. Good value, good service, and great food. Love the veggie selection, pot stickers, and ramen.

Shabuway only serves Shabu-Shabu, the broth fondue. The "kombu" kelp broth is the authentic but pitifully they have added spicy broth for non-Japanese Asian clienteles. Thin sliced beef are in certain quality for this pot cooking, but the service is considerable. Don't expect Japanese hospitality there because the servicepersons are not Japanese.

I do enjoy eating Shabu and the Shabu here is Kobe Beef in both regular and lean varieties. I particularly enjoy their Sukiyaki but last time I went it wasn't available. Not sure why. Overall the food is good here, although every time I went, there's a wait for dinner. Service is nice but a little slow.

This individual hotpot joint is a bit too much style over substance. But the food isn't terrible.
