I’ve been trying all of the best Las Vegas hot pots and stumbled across U Shabu. I saw some good reviews online, so I decided to give them a shot.
U Shabu is a relatively new Japanese hot pot, so this article will cover the basics (menu, prices, location), along with my experience eating at the restaurant. By the end, you’ll know exactly what to expect when you come here.
U Shabu Las Vegas Prices
U Shabu is an all-you-can-eat (AYCE) Japanese hot pot, also known as shabu shabu. They charge different prices depending on the time of day that you visit, but the menus are nearly identical (with the exception of a few types of meat). Here are the prices:

U Shabu Reservations & Information
When I visited U Shabu Las Vegas, it wasn’t very busy. You’ll usually get seated immediately without a reservation, but you can make one if you want to be safe.
The restaurant is open 7 days a week from 10:30am to 10pm. However, it does temporarily close every day between 3pm and 4:30pm. Just be aware of that when planning your visit.
U Shabu is located in the Golden Spring Plaza in the Chinatown neighborhood of Las Vegas. There are a lot of restaurants in the plaza, so parking can be tight at times.

U Shabu is a lesser-known spot, so I really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. I definitely recommend that you check them out the next time you find yourself in the area. Their prices are in line with other hot pot restaurants, and they have plenty of menu options.
