Editorial review from GrubHub 3/7/2013

The fish in my sushi was actually inedible, the edamame was undercooked (seriously, who manages that?), and they did not follow a single special request. Absolutely awful all around, I threw my full order of sushi out. more

Fair pricing, shabu shabu beef too thick 5/2/2007

I love shabu shabu, and I have to say, it was overall a good experience. The only downside was that the beef slices were too thick. Plenty of veggies/noodles to go along with the mini beef shabu shabu. We ordered the ones where you cook in a small pots by yourself, but I do believe that they have larger pots if you would like to share. They also have a special before 7:30, I think its $19.95pp for some sushi appetizer, shabu shabu, and a fried ice cream. Overall a good experience, and cheap for someone interested in trying shabu shabu. more

Lunch! 3/30/2007

I'm an NYU student and I'm here a LOT. Not only can you get cheap food, but the service is pretty quick, the sushi rolls are pretty fresh, and they have lots of other things to get. For example, theres a udon noodle soup with shrimp tempura that hearty and oh so yummy in the winter. However, I am not a fan of any of the ""spicy rolls"" being that the tartare tastes very much like cayenne and its overpowering. Looking for a cheap lunch spot, this is it. more

Fast delivery 3/16/2007

I thought I was ordering from Ichiro, at least that's what the delivery menu said, but Masamoto is what the new menu they brought says, so I guess they changed their named, and location it seems. Got two lunch specials, the beef teriyaki, and the shirmp tempura. Good as delivery food goes, and they delivered it quickly, so all in all, a good experience. Pros: quick delivery more

How would you like that? 8/29/2004

The space is small as are the portionsdont expect to be satiated unless you are prepared to order an abundance of food and that may prove to be an expensive proposition. As is typical with this style of cooking, your level of enjoyment will depend entirely on how you choose to dress your food. Fortunately they offer a variety of six sauces for your dipping pleasure. FYIstick with the shabu shabu, anything that the kitchen cooks will undoubtedly disappoint. Pros: Friendly service more

Delicious and healthy! 5/31/2004

This is a great place! The ingredients are fresh, tasty, and well-balanced in terms of variety (and yes, even food groups). The myraid of sauces and customizable temperature settings allow you to concoct the perfect pot of deliciousness. The cooking process is a lot of fun! Perfect place for hanging with friends or a laid back date. more

Delicious Delicious!!!! 5/25/2004

Excellent service, environment, and more importantly, excellent food. I'm an experienced shabu shabu lover. To me, what distinguishes the good ones from the bad ones are the selection of raw material(meat, vege, etc.), the flavor of the soup base and the dipping sauce. Swish definitly belongs to the higher end of the scale in all three categories. ""Swish Moo"" is one of my favorite on their menu. I also love the ""house special"" and ""chicken"" flavored soup base. ""ShaCha"" dipping sauce would always be my #1 choice. Did I mention they also come in big portions? yup, they do, unlike the other japanese restaurants. Oh, one more thing, definitly definitly eat the soup after you finish ""swish swish"". The soup in the end contains all the good flavors and nutrients. That just pushes the experience of eating shabu shabu to its highest climax:-). It just completes the meal. Bon Apetite! Pros: Good Portion, Delicious Food, Inexpensive more

Fun for a Group! 5/18/2004

Shabu shabu is a fun and delicious!!! way to cook your own food. Great for a date or a group of 4. Just opened, and this place will definitely take off. Pros: tasty, friendly, fun more

my new favorite 5/18/2004

Happy to have found this place! It's in a good area - a pretty block right near NYU. The food is incredible. The staff are great and explain all of the customs, how it's done. They serve HUGE portions of fresh food that you cook in a pot of broth yourself - it's different, but interesting to learn this Asian custom. I had the coconut tea with tapioca pearls to drink - a new experience, very interesting, and very delicious. I had the beef lunch and I could barely finish all of the food they served, including steak, two types of noodles, mushrooms, taro root, etc. Definitely ask to try a variety of the sauces. My mouth is watering just thinking about their chili pepper sauce. You get huge quantities of healthy food that tastes so delicious AND it's such a good deal!!!! This place is definitely my new favorite! more
