Good hotpot for some people...

Personally, my friends and I love this place. However I can see why not everybody would.

First, we only get one kind of soup base when we come here - Satay. They make the most delicious satay soup! The other soup bases seem not as good.

The other thing that will stand out about this place is the size of their hot pots. They're more shallow and HUGE! It makes it a lot easier to fish out food because you can see everything floating at the top and nothing stuck down at the bottom being burnt. However, this does make the soup evaporate faster, and sometimes the waiters/waitresses don't refill the soup fast enough. The pot being large also means it takes up more table space. They accommodate for this by having stands on the table, each holding up to 4 plates. But for all you can eat hot pot, sometimes many more plates than that come at once! Then you're left trying not to accidentally elbow a plate off the table.

The selection of food is pretty good. They have juicy shanghainese buns (frozen, cooked in hot pot), which I haven't seen in other hotpot restaurants. Their wontons are 100% shrimp and delicious. The meat they serve is hit and miss. It's sometimes very fresh and other times less so, but it always tastes good. They also have all you can drink plum juice (!) or coke included in the price, or all you can drink sprite for $1 more. It's a really good deal if you like a lot of plum juice with your hotpot like I do.

Service is sometimes slow as they only have one or two waitresses working at a time, and you don't always get all of the food you order. The place is small but you can call ahead to make reservations. It does get busy on Saturday nights. I would recommend giving this place a try, but it may not be for everyone. However we go at least once every month because nothing beats a gigantic satay pot!

Nothing Special

Service was just average, they take the order and give you the dishes. Food was ok, nothing that I would go back for. If you are looking for some decent hot pot and this is your first time, give it a try and see if you like it.

What U C isn't what U get.

It's a small canteen serving all U can eat HOT POT. The table is so small even for 4 of us. There is no space to put the dishes and we've to stack up to 4 stories high. Elbows are all fighting each other during HOT POT cooking. Serving food is slow, food quality is so so, service are mean. Shabusen, Richmond Sushi and Kyung Bok Palace are much much better.

Nice fresh food, great chicken wings!

We've been to this hotpot place every few months now, and they've been great everytime! Their tomato soup base is yummy and flavorful, and even though they are a hotpot place, their deep fried chicken wings are to die for! I'm willing to AYCE just chicken wings sometimes (J/K)! Great try if you haven't been yet.
