Too busy place, vege quality is just ok. Beef was good, but smaller portion. GooglePlace - August 2017

I was in a group of about 20 people and our server was excellent. She was calm, eager to help us as best as she could, and often multi-tasked while serving our long table. She was also knowledgeable about how their menu worked and explained the process to all newcomers like myself. There were only three broths: spicy miso, ginger chicken and traditional. American style Kobe beef was often served at our table. There were seasonings, minced garlic and a fermented veggie on the table as well as freshly washed vegetables to add to the broth. One bottle of Nigira (?) sake goes a long way and definitely hit the spot. The highlight about this shabu restaurant was that there was great ventilation. I've been to two other shabu restaurants and their ventilation was very poor, so when you left the restaurant, you definitely smelled like meat and smoke. Additionally, Shabu House in Burlingame was very spacious and there was a good amount of street parking. Their music playlist was awesome too because they were hits from the 90s and 00s.

Oh man, this place was not super stellar by any means. The place was not crowded when we arrived, as there were only two tables seated. We were seated at a table that needed cleaning badly; like the table itself was a mess, and there was a TON of trash on the floor. We're taking used napkins, and a lot of food. It was really disgusting. When letting the wait staff know (we had to seek them out), they said they'd get someone to clean it; this should have been done before we were seated, just as a regular sanitary check. We just asked if we could move tables, and the wait staff made it seem like that was a huge pain and very inconvenient for them (keeping in mind there were plenty of tables open). We ended up helping them because it seemed to be such a big deal. Besides this, some of the wait staff didn't seem very friendly and likely shouldn't have been working that evening; the other weren't as bad, however. The food was about on par with other Shabu restaurants I've been to, but the initial ordeal with the incredibly messy table is enough to have me not want to come back again. GooglePlace - July 2017

Every time I come here I over eat. The food is really good.Food selection is not the biggest but if your into eating lots of tender beef or lamb, this a place you will want to try. For big groups the service is somewhat bad, but in smaller tables you will be satisfied. The kobe beef accomponied by vegetables is my favorite. GooglePlace - July 2017
