I don't eat hot pot much, but I stopped here with a friend and was very pleased with how tasty it was. There are a lot of options to customize your soup with different kinds of meats and veggies, and it's kind of fun to see everything cook instantly in the soup. The portions were pretty big - we did not finish everything we ordered.

Prices were reasonable and service was quick and friendly.

Being mostly unfamiliar with this type of place, the visit was positive for our family (teenagers). The staff was thin, but worked together well. The food certainly met expectations.

Service was not great, it is a chinese restaurant. Food was very good, fresh tasty lamb and vegtables. Great sesame sauce to go with the hotpot.

My family and I love this restaurant we went here over and over every occasion. Love the broth both spicy and non spicy. When you order choose Half and Half broth with Kobe beef, thin chicken breast,pork belly with all vegetables as you like

We'd never tried hot pot before and were a bit lost figuring things out. There are many food options to choose for ordering, but we only recognized some of them. We also had to ask our waiter for help determining how long to cook various foods. But once we had the hang of things, we quite enjoyed our meal. The only negative was for the person in our party that was sitting "down wind" of the steam. We'd go again and would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for the hot pot experience. Our rating isn't higher because it was very basic food and the service was just average. Nothing exceptional, but worth trying.
