It's not a hot pot restaurant even though there are similarities to the HotPot concept. If youre looking for exciting spicy broths this isnt for you. If you want a fun meal thats different, thats what youre going to get.

Broths were bland. Table too small. Understaffed and poor service.Menu unfolded took 2/3 of table and tipped over the dipping sauce bowl. When I pointed this out to the waiter he brought me a pile of napkins. The cook top only holds one pot so...More
