This is one of the only locations around the area with hot pot. If you are choosing hot pot, make sure you give yourself 90 mins or so for dinner. This is not a quick spot, and you are meant to savor the flavors. There are a lot of choices and sauces. The staff is attentive and kind.

We were a little unsure of what to expect when we decided to try here. We made reservations on the early side for a Saturday evening and were surprised to be the only ones here when we arrived. However, by the time we left it was pretty full. We were seated and the concept of the Boiling Pot was explained. It’s a little overwhelming to see the list of food that is available and to be told you can order as much and as many of the items as you want. We selected a couple of apps and our meat and vegetable choices. Our apps were brought out and our pot was placed on the hotplate in the middle of the table. Soon our vegetables and seafood selections were brought out to start cooking. Not sure why, but our meat selections were several minutes behind the rest of the others. Unlike the other well know fondue restaurant, here you dump your food into the broth and fish it out when it’s done (instead of keeping it skewered while it cooks). So it can get confusing whose food is whose and if something has been in awhile of it was just put in by someone else. I also found that after awhile, everything kind of tastes the same – different cuts of beef and pork all seemed to be the same. You also start with frozen meats and seafood, so it was harder to judge when something was ready – especially frozen shrimp. All in all, we enjoyed our visit, had great service and while it isn’t something we would do very often, I can see us returning.

After a day of car shopping (and buying) my wife and I went to Boiling Pot on the suggestion of a new acquaintenance. We were underwhelmed when we walked in and became the only customers. A few others came in while we were eating, but very few. We ordered shrimp and grits and filet mignon over coconut rice. Both came with Asian vegetables and both were tasty and pleasing. They offered a variety of foods and styles.

We were visiting Charlotte for the day, had grandparents, parents and kids age 9 & 1. This was a fun and interactive way to eat dinner. It is a bit pricy so not something to do all the time, they have a regular menu as well that looks great.

Service was excellent, food was very good. A group of 4 or more adults like we had seems to be the best way to really enjoy and experience this "hot pot" meal. Choose your own food, cook your own food. Pass plates around and allows you to have a fresh meal and a lot of fun.

Leave room for fresh HOT donuts at the end of your meal as well if you can. Caramel Flan was also a nice surprise.

My first time having Taiwanese food. It was great! The food was delicious and the service was great. My server Chris took great care of me. You choose up to two different broths and as many items to cook in them as you'd like. Highly recommend this restaurant.
