Being mostly unfamiliar with this type of place, the visit was positive for our family (teenagers). The staff was thin, but worked together well. The food certainly met expectations.

Service was not great, it is a chinese restaurant. Food was very good, fresh tasty lamb and vegtables. Great sesame sauce to go with the hotpot.

We'd never tried hot pot before and were a bit lost figuring things out. There are many food options to choose for ordering, but we only recognized some of them. We also had to ask our waiter for help determining how long to cook various...More

From a hot pot restaurant, you really expect just three things: 1. Good soups 2. Fresh meat / vegetables 3. Quick service This restaurant checks all the boxes.

Was one of the last to be seated before the kitchen closed. The wait was extremely long for one person. The front desk estimated 20 minutes which was really twice as long. The food was okay but expensive for one person and not worth the...More

Description
Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is a restaurant specializing in Mongolian style hot pot dining. With 36 spices and ingredients in our original soup base recipe, our flavorful broth is sure to satisfy every single one of your taste buds. The highest quality meats ranging from lamb, beef, pork, and poultry are sliced perfectly to cook within seconds of touching the simmering broth. When the mouth-watering scent of our hot pot hits you, you'll be hooked for sure! For vegetarians, we offer leafy greens, mushrooms, and other vegetables that perfectly complement our famous broth. Seafood lovers will also not be left out with our fresh seafood list. Mongolian Hot Pot serves as the forerunner to the modern fondue. Its history stems back hundreds of years to the nomadic Mongols, where tribes would gather to cook fresh meats in a communal pot with simmering broth. Today, hot pot still focuses on the fundamental ideas of fresh, healthy ingredients, sharing, friendship, family, and gathering!
