"Located in Chinatown Boston, this place is great for hot pot. It is open late and the prices are very affordable. Just choose the broth you like and combination of meats you would like to get with it."

- Lan N.


"My first meal in Boston was exquisite! Thank you so much Shabu Zen for explaining how to hot pot, answering questions, and filling me up with delicious vegetables! I got the Vegetarian Delight that includes taro, pumpkin, carrot, 5 different mushrooms, okra, bok choy, and corn on the cob among others!"

- Chantalle B.


"Glad to see this spot is still here after 15+ years. One of my favorite shabu places in Boston. The fish paste is as good as I remember it 15+ years ago. The ribeye marble was as good as it taste."
