Best place for Shabu in the city Kobe beef, lamb, and new to the menu Korabuto pork are all good with a 31 dollar all you can eat option. They also have a great sake selection and your choice of broths, my favorite is the spicy miso. Their sesame sauce is especially good since they add a secret ingredient that adds to the texture of the sauce kewpie(Japanese mayo). The ponzu is also good.

**FEELING LIKE SHABU THE WHALE**
(btw, I know it's SHAMU, just play with me, ppl.)
Oooh, very full. Roll me out of here.
This was my first Shabu experience, a Japanese fondue house.
We came here for dinner after enjoying a full day at Outside Lands. Parking was tricky, best best is to start looking 2 blocks prior to 15th.
They didn't take reservations for 3, so we waited for half an hour on a Sunday night.
2 orders of Shabu Kobe Beef ($15.99 each person) and 1 order of American Pork ($15.99) with spicy miso soup broth later, we were quite full and content.
The orders came with assorted vegetables (spinach, carrots, mushrooms), udon, rice and ice cream.
Don't forget the Sapporos ($4 small, $6 large)!
I thought the spicy miso broth was rather bland, but spicy. It lacked the complete flavor. Thankfully, we were also given dipping sauces so that made up for the blandness of the soup.
The meats, however, were cut razor-thin and cooked within seconds in the broth which was a huge plus.
Service was good for the most part; although we had to ask for water and reminded them about our requested rice bowls several times.
Overall, a good experience, especially for large parties with a budget (all you can eat $39.99 with drinks).
RECOMMEND for Outer Richmond.

If I had known about this place in college, my friends could have done some damage here. They have a reasonably priced all-you-can-eat shabu shabu deal plus an add on if you want to take part in all-you-can-drink beer and sake. They are clearly used to college kids, they gave us a long speech about how only the people who paid for the all-you-can drink were allowed to drink and if they even saw a person drinking a sip who wasn't one of the people, everyone would have to pay the extra price.
They give you a choice of broths to use for your shabu, and the quality of the food is decent. Not the fanciest of places, but a reasonably priced place to fill up.

Dip, swirl, devour.
The way to go while dining at Shabu House:
1. Spicy miso broth
2. All-you-can-eat-and- drink for $40
I LOVE shabu shabu, and Shabu House delivers in service, ambiance and food! The staff was extremely accommodating to our rowdy party of 30 (max for table seating in the entire restaurant, walk-ins sat at the bar). The plates of raw veggies, kobe beef and lamb just kept on coming! The spicy miso soup made everything taste amazing.
The various sake (not included in the all-you-can-drink, just beer) we had were so smooth, and the sparkling sake was quite yummy as well. Shabu shabu + sake = a very satisfied gal!
I am recommending this spot for any large group dinner with my friends from now on!
