[London] ISO Best shabu shabu?

Currently looking for a shabu shabu restaurant in central London for a weekend meal. Thought I'd try Kiku in Mayfair but since it's a little on the expensive side, I'm looking for any other recommendations.

I've already been to Sichuanese hot pot and Japanese ramen to get me through London's cold, dark winter. I think now is the time for shabu shabu!

    Maybe try Miyama on Clarges street. I've not tried their shabu shabu but everything else is good. it's not cheap, but should be cheaper than Kiku.

      Thanks, Will125. You're right - Miyama is cheaper... but only by £1!

      I'm surprised at how difficult it is to find information on Japanese shabu shabu in London. Any other pointers would be much appreciated. If it's a place that also serves hirae sake (warm sake with a fishtail), then I'll be there!

      Mitsukoshi does shabu shabu I think?

      I just googled "Shabu Shabu London" in Japanese and found some info. They mentioned Kiku, Momo (Ealing) and Mitsukoshi.

      There use to be a Red book for information on Japanese restaurants/shops in London. Not sure if they still have it.
