All-you-can-eat dining with a twist and alot extra
My eyes must have looked absolutely huge, the size of laser discs (you remember them right - before the golden age of VCDs and DVDs). There I was, in the middle of what I will always remember as my favourite restaurant of ALL time, looking around the restaurant and not believing my good luck. We had been shopping for a couple of hours, and had really worked up a hunger.
An all-you-can-eat buffet (for 1 hour and 15 minutes which is more than enough time), Shabushi was my dream come true. Sushi, sashimi, tempura, shabu shabu, barbecue, all my favourites were up for grabs on what looks like a sushi-train.
Definitely ready to fill my tummy! Outside the Shabushi Restaurant
When you walk in, there are difference sections each with booths or individual seating. Each individual seat setting has its own sukiyaki hot pot whereas the booth type seating areas have one large central hot pot to share with a group or family. You have a choice of spicy or non-spicy soup that you can put fillings you get off the sushi train, including squid, fish, prawns, mushrooms, chicken etc. There are several choices of drinks you can have too, from green tea to Mirinda softdrink to Calamasi juice. Wait, there's more, did I mention at the end there's also unlimited ice cream?
A wide selection as you can see, I'm getting hungry just looking at these photos again
It's crazy just how much I enjoyed this restaurant. It is such a cool concept for a restaurant. An easy, fun and delicious way to enjoy a variety of foods and the price was great too, only 345 Baht/$11AUD when we went at lunch time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone if they're in Thailand and they have branches not only in Phuket, but in Bangkok too.
