Very nice Shabu Shabu

A lot of different vegetables on display on the buffet, you can pick and choose what you want. Also had quite a lot of Tofu and other fake meats, mushroom balls etc.

Overall one of my better experiences all over Thailand with Shabu Shabu.

I came before leaving to go back to Bangkok around 12:30, there were not many other customers, quick service, drinks (water and the classic red juice) included.

I liked the different sauces they offer / you can mix for yourself.

Also, it should be probably possible to go alone, something a bit unusual at most Shabu Shabu places, since every seat has its own pot.

Very filling.

What a waste of money and time

My girlfriend and I really wanted to try this place because it has positive reviews here and on Google and we have never eaten hot pot. We can absolutely not understand the positive reviews. The food really had no taste and the service was very pushy. Throughout, a waiter circled our table and watched us. If you want to eat tasteless soups with some veggies then this is your place.

We give the restaurant one star because everything is vegan because of the vegetables.
Our recommendation: better go eat somewhere else

Pros: Everything vegan

Cons: Tasteless, Bad service, Expensive

Amazing vegetarian Shabu

Finally reopen in Feb 2023. Good selection of items on the hot pot buffet. Noodles also bought too the table and each person gets their own pot. 299 baht per person, and a la carte menu also available. They have a selection of plated fruit after the meal - melon and pomelo. They seem to have a small function room as there was a group singing karaoke during our visit. A pleasant visit, would definitely return with friends.
They don’t have dairy free milk but there is a 7/11 across the road and they are happy to make a coffee using a carton (approx 10 baht)

Excellent pot restaurant for vegans

We had a warm welcome on arrival to this clean and tidy pot restaurant. The staff were friendly, helpful and speak some English. The buffet ingredients were fresh clean and well prepared and presented and consisted of a variety of mushrooms and fungi, vegetables and greens plus some mock meats and tofu. They also have an a la carte menu with typical Thai restaurant dishes.

Everyone in our party enjoyed their soup. There is a rule about not leaving any food over and our party had little trouble finishing their food off. Everyone went back for seconds. There was a small selection of local style beverages which were also much enjoyed.

I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for an affordable and health conscious cooked meal. As a vegan I’m not keen on using vegetarian restaurants, but I felt at home here. They offer a non-indulgent menu, which is not necessarily a con, but dessert lovers will not enjoy.

On a recent return trip we had a less inspiring experience due to CV restrictions limiting the options.

Pros: Abundant fresh produce , Excellent choice for whole food vegan style diet, Affordable option for large parties

Wonderful addition to the Pattaya vegetarian/vegan scene!!

A Pot Shabu - Vegetarian Shabu Buffet Pattaya
385/5–8 Moo 10 South Pattaya Road Nongprue Banglamung Pattaya 20150
On the South side across the road from where Soi 16 Pattayatai meets Pattaya Road South
Eating Vegetarian in Pattaya and Beyond
Fantastic! Just opened August 2018. Another great vegetarian option in Pattaya. Let’s keep this place alive and prospering with our patronage.
Clean, bright, air conditioned, large space with friendly staff.
Buffet style with creatively displayed cooked dishes as well as individual hot pots for each person at the table.
Grand opening special price of 299baht > regular price will be 359baht.
Was pleased with the artistry of the chefs in their food displays!
Hot pots come with your choice of a Tom Yum or a Shabu flavored stock to cook a large variety of very fresh veggies and mock seafood/meat selections of your choice.
On my first visit I never got around to using the hot pot. After eating 8 different offerings from the chefs I was too stuffed to eat anything more. Every one of the dishes I dined on were very delicious with the exception of one that was only very good.
One thing that could make this great dining experience even better is if they would offer something sweet to finish off the meal with. Options like fresh fruit such as watermelon and pineapple. Perhaps something like a crème caramel custard and/or whole grain brown rice pudding would be welcome additions.
Lacto-ovo-vegetarian eaters can enjoy anything in the restaurant. Vegan eaters can enjoy about 90% of the offerings.
11am to 9pm

Pros: Delightful foods artistically displayed, Friendly staff, All you can eat

Cons: Presently lacking sweet dessert

A 'Shabu' style buffet restuarant in town

This place has just been opened a week (August 2018) and we checked it out last night. The place is large and beautifully set out. A range of amazing foods including Thai, Chinese and Western (Cauliflower cheese and a pasta dish when we visited). A salad / shabu bar. Collect your chosen ingredients and make your soup at your table with your electrically heated pot. Everything including some amazing flower teas, a tea / coffee bar and they even have a shelf of goodies to buy. Loved the whole tasteful lay out. The staff are so so welcoming and attentive. The food tasted great but we thought that the buffet food itself was cold. It has only been open for one week and we put that down to the lack of immediate customers. There is a special charge for August B299. Next month it goes up to set price of B359. Going to be a regular for us.

Updated from previous review on 2018-08-08

Pros: Big and spacious , Friendly and welcoming staff, Great value for money

Cons: Buffet food was cold
