“Fun and Different Food Experience”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

For all the foodies out there, you have to try this restaurant. It's somewhat like fondue but instead of cheese or oil, you have your choice of various soup bases like curry, spicy miso, etc. then you choose from a plethora of eclectic foods to put into the soup.

Between the five of us we had two different pots going because some like it spicy and others didn't. We tried pretty much everything from the enoki mushrooms to black fungus to tripe and loved it all.

I've read some other reviews about people that made reservations and still had to wait but that wasn't the case with us. We walked in at the exact time of our reservation and were seated immediately. We also received excellent attentive service.

This is a must-have experience!

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

This is a fun experience if you want something different for dinner. Depending on where you are staying you may have to travel a bit, but it's worth it. This is where the local Chinese community goes to eat. We were there on a Monday evening and it was full. We had the hot pot, which is what they're all about and the food was delicious and very fresh. The manager was great, he helped us navigate the menu and the process and explained the relevance of the hot pot with the Chinese culture. We had a great time!

“Excellent. This is a new...”
Reviewed 26 August 2009

Excellent. This is a new restaurant on the corner. Great for Hot Pot lovers to cook fresh meats and veggies in a pot with 2 different flavor soups. Fresh ingredients and friendly owner who's innovative to create more soup flavors like green tea! :-) Great for large groups. Once price for all you can eat when I ate here like 2 months ago.
