Mr. Shabu Hot Pot and Sushi Restaurant near Provo Utah

Real Estate Agent with The Gasset Group & Get It Done For Me Virtual Services 13253167-SA00

I have a story for you! So, there we were, gearing up for my eldest granddaughter’s big 16 — yeah, the sweet sixteen bash. Every year, it’s been our little tradition to go out for sushi because, let’s be real, who doesn’t love a good sushi night, right?

But this year, I thought, “Let’s kick things up a notch.” I mean, it’s not every day your granddaughter turns 16. She’s pretty much obsessed with sushi (who can blame her?), so I set out to find the perfect spot that would make this birthday unforgettable.

Enter Mr. Shabu, our knight in shining armor, nestled right on the border of Orem, a hop, skip, and a jump away from Provo, Utah. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill sushi joint. Mr. Shabu is where the art of Japanese cuisine comes to life, offering a mind-blowing a la carte menu that’s a feast for both the eyes and the palate. And guess what? They have an all-you-can-eat sushi menu AND hot pot option. Talk about hitting the jackpot!

Mr. Shabu Restaurant Reservations

Mr. Shabu is a popular Asian restaurant here in Orem so I advise to make reservations a day or so in advance.

They do not accept same day reservations and it is a wait! But SO worth it! To book a table, contact them at: 801–406–6573 or book a reservation through their website.

So there we were, waiting eagerly to celebrate the big 16, and let me tell you, the wait was absolutely worth it. The moment we stepped in, I was blown away by the owner’s superpower — remembering everyone’s names! It wasn’t just about getting a table; it was about feeling welcomed and seen. Now that’s what I call exceptional customer service.

Exceptional Customer Service at Mr. Shabu

The owner wasn’t the only star of the show. Our waitress was the epitome of kindness, making my granddaughter’s birthday dinner even more special with her warm smiles and genuine happiness for us. And when I learned that the man who seated us — the ‘big boss’ — was not only fantastic with customer names but also remembered his staff, I was sold. This place wasn’t just serving food; they were serving happiness.

Now, onto the star of the show — the food. We went all out with the all-you-can-eat sushi and hot pot. My personal favorite? The Tuna Sashimi. It was like a symphony of flavors in my mouth. And the Samurai rolls? A fiery delight with just the right kick of heat.

The variety at Mr. Shabu is simply out of this world. From the Mr. Shabu Beef Rib Eye to the Vegetarian options and the children’s menu, there’s something for everyone. And the sushi? Let’s just say it’s a rollercoaster of flavors waiting to be discovered.

Mr. Shabu Overall Review: A Stellar Experience

If I could give Mr. Shabu a six-star review, I would. From the unmatched customer service that makes you feel like family to the fresh, tantalizing dishes that leave you craving for more, Mr. Shabu is more than a restaurant — it’s an experience. A dining adventure that’s top-notch in every way.

So, if you’re ever near Provo, or even Salt Lake City, and you’ve got a hankering for some authentic Japanese cuisine, do yourself a favor and check out Mr. Shabu. Trust me, it’s an adventure your taste buds won’t want to miss. And who knows? Maybe you’ll start your own family tradition, just like we did.
