BEST FONDUE Phoenix 2005 - Shabu Fondue

"Hey, you've got your meat in my Emmenthaler!" "Yes, but you've got your chocolate on my beef!" Okay, so that's how we imagine it going down at the stylish new Chandler eatery Shabu Fondue, which offers diners a chance to sample both Swiss fondue and Japanese shabu-shabu in one night. Of course, you may be singing "The Sukiyaki Song" in German before it's all over, but the reality is that most folks have these very different hot-pot experiences in tandem, not together. In the case of shabu-shabu, you heat up a bowl of water and oil, swish around thin slices of beef and veggies, and voilà, you've got shabu-shabu. Fondue, of course, is the Swiss version of same, using mostly bread and fruit with melted cheese and chocolate. All of this is done on the stove built into your table, which does make you wonder how that meat would taste cooked in chocolate. . . . Hmmm. Just remember, you heard it here first.

This place is fabulous! Delicious food in a cool trendy atmosphere. It is also MUCH cheaper than the alternative fondue place. The meat course is sliced thin which help avoid the chance of food poisoning that is not that unlikely to obtain from its competition. Do yourself a favor and go down and try it out today! Yummy!

I have been to Shabu Fondue several times, Chiks dig it. Its a foo foo gimiky place where you get to dip your own food in your choice of cheese, or if you should order any meat, you get to dip it in some sort of broth, the portions are skimpy at best. Desert is good if you dont mind melted chocolate dipped fruit, somores, or a slice of cheese cake. no refills on my drink even when asked. waking up at 3 am with a belly ache from too much coliflower dipped cheese, is not my idea of a good meal. The sevice staff was not experenced, slow and a little dumb. the place is very noisy. To top it off, three days later they charged me a $350.00 tip on top of my $127.68 tab, Still trying to get it straitened out, with my bank and Shabu Fondue, No apoligy from Shabu Fondue. There are better upscale places to go in the valley of the sun. If you should get a hankering for some thin sliced meat, cheese, vegies and stale bread. Subway would be a better choice,
