Absolutely loved our experience here a few weeks ago (and it's my second time! The first time, we visited their sister restaurant). The food is delicious from start to finish, and a truly special experience in an intimate 8-seater restaurant. I grew up eating a ton of Shabu Shabu since my father was an enthusiast and we visited Japan frequently. However this is an upscale experience where you get to try multiple cuts of beef with special sauce (loved the special blue cheese sauce!) with a personal chef making the food right in front of you The location right on Delancey street is, um, colorful to say the least. We knocked on the door and slipped through the unlocked door just as some homeless man was unzipping his pants to relieve himself right behind us. Welcome to NYC, I guess! I also hope they feel empowered to open the other seats (they were operating at 50% capacity even though the city was already fully open). I would be loathe to see this restaurant go away!
Excellent experience trying one of the best Japanese Wagyu through Shabu Shabu with different sauce.
Couldn’t recommend Shabushabu Macoron more highly! We went to a seating on a Wednesday to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday and we ended up being the only reservation so we had a private omakase experience! Mika the chef was absolutely fantastic. She took the time to get to know us and explain each dish and its origin. Many of the dishes take hours and even days to prepare, making each dish truly a piece of art. All of the food was out of this world, couldn’t recommend it more! Thank you Mika for such a delicious and memorable evening!

So delicious and thoughtful
Good concept & food was good.
friendly staff and delicious food. Very intimate setting - great for date night or girls night out (; Came here 2 years ago for my birthday and there was a new menu this time (equally as delicious) reservations only
Overdue review- dined here in November 2020 when indoor dining hadn't been shut down again. Intimate, cozy setting; think the restaurant sits 8 although only one other party of 2 was there the night I visited. Generally with coursed dinners I find there's a course that I didn't like as much as others. That wasn't the case here: I loved every single bite of everything offered. The chef was nimble and focused & did a great job of cooking and serving each guest. I thought the timing of each course was ideal - no waiting around for food nor a rush to eat (there were only 4 of us this night though). This is an ideal date spot. Granted it's not cheap but the quality of the food was top notch. Highly recommend for a special occasion or celebration. Didn't take photos of all the courses but some of the highlights are attached. Will definitely revisit.
Enjoyed the whole experience, and a great way to explore different flavors. My mouth was watering the whole time, and would suggest for special occasions!
Highly recommend this place especially during the cold weather. Every single bite is just amazing.
Me and my boyfriend 2 people we spent $570 plus tip. They over charged us a $50 sake later on refunded the money. For 3 slices A5 beef maybe it's worth it...
The omakase/shabu blend is truly quite wonderful. The omakase part of the tasting menu is not your traditional omakase. Raw vegetables are given to help improve digestion in between the two journeys. The shabu consists entirely of A5 waygu cooked in various ways with different sauces. Absolutely delish food in a very intimate setting. The restaurant only seats 8 at a time. Unlike any omakase or shabu shabu experience I've had - very elevated.
Fantastic shabushabu Wagyu tasting menu. Sadly Maco has moved back to Japan. It was the best concept and delicious food
Amazing food! Sad that the current chef (Mako) is gone but hopefully the place will keep up the quality!
Amazing experience that was above our expectations!! Team was great and food was insane. A true classic shabu shabu experience!!
