This is the first time I've encountered a Chinese 'huo guo' restaurant outside of China; for an intro to the cooking style wikipedia has a good article at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ho… .
And it is top notch. The best thing about this place though is their jiaozi (commonly called Chinese dumplings, though more like Chinese ravioli I've always thought) and noodle bowls, a bit expensive but you can't get vegetarian ones anywhere else in Sheffield.
The only downside to jabu is their opening hours, I think they only open for business after 4 pm meaning no chance of lunch here. It is also normally very busy, which to be honest is great as if this place shut it would be Sheffield's loss.
This is a 'chinese fondue' restaurant.
The basic concept is that you order little plates of various foods - veg, tofu, fish, meat, noodles - and cook them in a bubbling wok of chinese soup at your table. You start with a plate of declicious chinese dumplings and go from there.
It is great fun, very reasonable, and bring your own alcohol. The staff are very helpful and will advise you about what is the best type of noodle to choose, how many dishes to allow for your group etc.
