Thanks for another great meal. We love it here. All you can eat hot pot. Not just slices of beef and chicken or what not. A real array of meats and veggies. You get it yourself, no waiting for a server.

We love this place and making our own soup. However, it is not for the less adventurous and can seem intimidating the first time.

We really wanted to like this place. Came here on a cold winter night looking for some warm food. Low quality meat, un-flavorful broth. Took them forever to restock the buffet area. Very unclean, they had no system. People were using the same tongs to...More
