Looked for this restaurant based on "word of mouth" recommendation. For the hot pot: you choose a type of broth (e.g., vegetarian vs. chicken and spicy vs. non-spicy). Then you add vegetables, meat (or fish or tofu), or noodles. The menu is a la carte and you pay for each item--so you can enjoy a simple, cheaper hot pot with few ingredients, or a more complex and expensive hot pot with lots of ingredients. You cook the ingredients at your table; there are written instructions re: how long to cook the various items. As mentioned by other reviewers, there is a "sauce bar" in the back of the restaurant. We chose to add pumpkin, bok choy, enoki mushrooms, thick noodles and fish cake to the delicious broth. Ingredients were fresh and excellent quality, and staff were very friendly (though the restaurant was busy and some staff had limited English facility). I didn't find the bill expensive but we ordered a meatless hot pot (about $15/person left us full). There can be a wait for tables.

This is one of the best, if not the best, Hot Pot experiences I've had. What set it apart? The quality of all ingredients were impeccably fresh, including the excellent soup broths. As well, there is so much variety (including around six kinds of chinese greens, multiple dumpling choices, a variety of mushrooms) that it becomes a really fun experience just deciding what to order. We arrived early on a Saturday night. Good thing too..by 8:00, there was a line out the door. This is a good choice for a group of friends or a family - everyone can get involved with the cooking. Most of the clientele were Chinese (except for us) - always a great sign. Lastly, this is a reasonably priced dinner - excellent value...and a relatively healthy meal. You could easily fill up on veggies and protein and skip all carbs if you want.

A fried of mine told me there is that Chinese/Mongolian hot pot restaurant, so we went to check it out. Great choice of veggie, meat, mushrooms and seafood!
Excellent quality service for a price of about 40$pp including beers

Absolutely loved it. (The parking - not so much) My friend and I went and we ordered the split hot pot of the regular and spicy soup. The soup on its own is delicious. We wanted to a have a variety of items so we ordered the smaller plates of ribeye, chicken, head OFF shrimp, noodles and baby bok choy. The meats are cut paper thin but there was more than enough. *Remember use the tongs for the raw chicken not your chop sticks** We got 6 shrimp in the small order. I didn't think I would care for the bok choy but after being in that broth, it was delicious!

We also ordered the meat pie (which is very like a quesadilla without the cheese and a different flavored meat. We also had the pork dumplings. I really liked the meat pie but there was some flavor in the dumplings that I didn't care for. We could have lived without them actually, but we figured, when in Rome....

The staff was very nice, they didn't explain anything about the sauce bar like some reviewers mentioned. Honestly, I was hard pressed to figure out what you would need the sauce for. The broth was so flavorful and did such wonders to the meat, I didn't even realize they didn't mention it. What we both thought was nice, is that we were treated very well. There are some establishments in the Main Street, Flushing area that prefer to cater to certain crowd and boy do you know it. Little Sheep was not all like that. We inquired as to what one of the spices was and the hostess wrote it down in two languages for us so we wouldn't forget.

At the end of the meal, they give you an adorable little bottle of some type of drink that sort of tastes like a creamsicle. It really serves your palate well to drink it. All told we spend $62 for all that food (too much really!) and one soda. Well worth it! I would love to go back.

Even though I am not a fan of Hot Pot both the service and the meal may cause me to go back again when I am next in the ratlands
