Definitely a unique way to sit down and have a meal. Depending on the time of day you go it could be somewhat of a wait to get food as your standing and watching the chefs grill. Overall not bad.

I love this place because it's so fun! You can make whatever dish you want out of the arrangement of meat, noodles, veggies, and sauces. Don't like what you made? Go and do it again! My only complaint is that the cooks tend to loose a lot of the vegetables when they're preparing the dish and you might just end...

Just like other places of the variety, (Fire and Ice located in Boston), Hu Hot is set basically as an experience over the quality. If you and a place that will give you great quantity and decent quality, then this is your place.
It is light and lively on the inside. The food prep area is maintained pretty well by the staff. The food itself is ok, I have seen double the amount of variety in similar stores, but this one was sufficient. The cooks are fun and the waitresses are attentive to your plates and filing your drinks.

One thing i did not expect was that the meats were frozen and not fresh or thawed. This decreased my the flavor of the food and the enjoyment of the experience.

Overall for a fun, quick, eat all you want place it works really well. Beats going to the chinese buffet and you get to watch them prepare your food instead of wondering what happens in the back room.

I love HuHot!! Hubby & I went there last night and had a fabulous dinner, as always!!! The meat is always frozen, so I never worry about it having sat at room temp for long enough to develop germs & bacteria; the vegetables are always super fresh, and of course the sauces are the key! I love being able to try a different 'taste/spice'' each time I go. THe service is always good, it's not like the server has to do a lot, but they are usually efficient and friendly!! I always leave HuHot full and satisfied. One of the best things about HuHot is just about anyone can eat there and find someting they like, since you choose all your own ingredients! The worst thing is that I can usually only eat one bowl.... :(

Its not the best rester aunt in town, but the experience is unique in the way that you get to create your own dish before it is even cooked, select the seasoning, and watch as it is cooked on a large, circular grill.
