Such a cool spot! The service was really good. It was pricey but you're paying for the atmosphere. Parking is also going to cost you so prepare for that. Cooking the food was fun and eating it was even better. Definitely a place everyone should visit at least once.

Good place for all you can eat Chinese hot pot. There are many choices of proteins and vegetables, as well as the soup base. You can do individual hot pots or one large one for the whole table. The sauce station has many options, allowing you to mix and match various sauce bases such as soy and Hoisin, as well as toppings, such as garlic, cilantro, allowing you to customize your own sauce. I've given them only four stars because the wait staff isn't the best, and we felt as if we were being rushed out of the restaurant, even though it wasn't crowded and there were many empty tables.

Having visted its local Chinatown competitors, I think this place is a bit better. Especially for the broths and selection of Sichuan foods. They also have an all you can eat offering, which was great. Their in-house meatballs are great, in all versions. Their service, however, wasn't exactly perfect. Not awful, but definitely slow.
