My friend wanted to go here for her birthday, so I called and made reservations. We had a GREAT time. The service was incredible. Chandler and the owner were super sweet and very attentive.

I am super picky about my restaurants, and Shabu Shabu Ya passes all of my tests. The beef is excellent quality and fresh. Their sushi is good as well. Their tuna sashimi salad is delicious.

I highly recommend it here. It is clean, not overly crowded and there isn't a wait. It is a really fun place for dinner!

Pros: Great service, yummy shabu shabu, great place for a group

Cons: Parking is a little tough sometimes

When I worked nearby, I used to eat here much more often, but now it is still a delight to have a delicious lunch here. The serving size is adequate to keep you stuffed for the rest of the day, the venue is generally quiet and clean, and the price can't be beat! I even tried making shabu shabu from home, and considering the cost of mean, $11-ish for a FULL meal here is totally worth it! The free refills of white rice and dipping sauces is also very much appreciated.

Pros: Ambience, price, quality

This place is WAY WAY better than Shabu Shabu House - or anwhere for that matter. That place has an hour long wait, having hungry people waiting two inches away from you in a crowded tiny room, or worse, being a hungry person waiting right behind someone enjoying their food. And you come out stinking like smelly meat/broth because there is no ventilation there. It isn't a pleasant atmosphere.

Shabu Shabu Ya rocks! The parking is great, they got a liquor license, and the food is miles better than anywhere else. The produce is always fresh as is the beef. I'm obsessed w/ freshness and this place never dissapoints. Trust me on this.

I love Shabu Shabu and have traveled the distance in Los Angeles area to find the best one. I have to tell you this place is on par with the quality of Shabu Shabu you get in down town LA (in Little Tokyo) at a small place called Shabu Shabu House that i can rank #1 on my book. Without going into the details of the other place (another review), every time we have gone to Shabu Shabu Ya, the service, meat and the experience have been top notch. There is always an open table and a welcoming staff member awaiting you and it is so central. The only negative i would find is the fact that they are not open fro lunch :)

I have tried a lot of shabu shabu places in LA and this one is good. The Shabu Shabu House in Litlle Tokyo is still my first choice but if you don't feel like waiting over an hour to eat this one is a good alternative. It is pretty empty (but you don't wait and get to choose your table) but it only opened 2/3 months ago. The food is good (i only tried the beef), you get a small appetizer (tuna sashimi or seaweed salad) and free refill of cabbage/ rice. They do lack the liquor license, hope it will come soon. Service is very good and quick (i guess it's due to the fact that's it's not very full). Finally it's pretty cheap for shabu-shabu (cheapest i've seen so far). To conclude, this restaurant is not as goood as the Little Tokyo one but if you don't feel like driving to downtown and waiting an hour, it's definitely worth trying.

We knew as soon as we sat down that something was wrong. Something just didn't feel right. Could it be that the restaurant was completely devoid of any sign of patronage, other than ourselves? Nay, friend. Twas worse than ye could imagine. Twas SUCH A BAD DINING EXPERIENCE that I just busted into pirate. What?

Anyway... on the bright side, we had our choice of booths ...which is nice. On the other hand, did I mention the place was empty? Might have something to do with the LACK OF LIQUOR LICENCE. WTF? No sake? No beer? No thank you.

We stayed out of a sad sense of pitbligation (that's pity/obligation) and regretted every unattentive, unappetizing slice of beef. The fatty chicken knuckes went untouched (note: after an hour-long debate, this is what we decided they were).

Best of luck to you; brave Shabu Shabu lovers.

Godspeed.
