SF Weekly's Description

Shabu Pub's signature hot pot -- in which slices of thinly sliced meats are quickly cooked in hot broth -- isn't quite as Japanese as the restaurant claims. It's a blend of Japanese and Chinese hot pots, with spicy miso and Mongolian broths available and a choice of meats that ranges from traditional beef to heretical lamb and seafood. The restaurant is packed with big families, many of whom are opting for the all-you-can-eat option, which includes giant bowls of vegetables and loops of half-cooked udon noodles. And if the raw beef and lamb is sliced so thin that it tends to disintegrate, the rhythm of the DIY meal makes it a pleasant night out.

    Oyster is really good. Food is alright. The waitress is nice and the rest are slow and make mistakes. The spicy miso is good. You should get seafood combo and meat combo so you can share.

    My first hot pot experience! It was excited purely because of that. The beef and spicy miso was deloycious(:

    Service is mediocre here. Stay away until they iron out the kinks.
