Such a fan of this spot. From NYC so I’ve had my fair share of good hotpot but this place really impressed me. Fast, friendly service and they have such a cute atmosphere. Big tables perfect for eating out with friends. Their combo menus are also really good for beginners to try but the servers are really friendly and willing to give suggestions. So surprised how fresh the free diy sauce bar looked and they have little recipes for sauces to try. Beef wrapped enoki mushrooms were really yummy and they didn’t skimp on the portions they gave. Really want to come back and try their house special drinks, they did a buy 1 get 1 free promotion last time we went.

I’ve been a loyal customer of this hotpot place and I can’t recommend it enough! The flavors of their spicy hotpot are simply irresistible. The owner is incredibly kind, and they even surprised me with a delicious milk tea after my meal. I must say, their milk tea surpasses the taste of the one at Moge Tea. If you’re looking for a fantastic dining experience, this is the place to be. The combination of exceptional service, mouthwatering food, and the owner’s generosity make it a must-visit spot. Whether you’re a fan of spicy dishes or just enjoy a hearty meal, this restaurant has something for everyone. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to indulge in their amazing hotpot and delightful milk tea – you won’t be disappointed!

Great place and great atmosphere. We had the two flavors hot pot combo b with an exercise of spam fried rice. All the places to eat here are on one side of the street like an old west town and there's street parking which may be difficult to find and is a large parking lot across the street where there is a Harris teeter with their sign saying don't park there so you make it towed if you do. Food came out quickly obviously since you cook it yourself and you boil it up and eat it and it was pretty good. The spam fried rice was okay. It wasn't very flavorful so you might want to skip that, but it was only $1.99 and the place does not have their sanitation grade prominently displayed. It's sitting over there by the cash register. You can barely see it says 9 either eight or zero. Regardless, we drove a long way and decided to try it and overall it was pretty good so definitely a good place to try. All of the food you see in the picture below cost about 60 bucks. And they have a bar where you can make your own sauces. With some recipes above, you can dip your meat in.

We enjoyed our experience here. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is fresh. Soup bases can be tailored into different spiciness as well as vegan and vegetarian stock options. There are vegetarian and vegan food items for hot pot and dry pot so don't worry you'll be stuck eating just one thing. Looking forward to coming back and trying other menu items.

First time EVER for me. Very lucky to have a waiter who took care of us and convinced us not to order "crazy hot" which might have killed us. Food was delicious and the service over and beyond expectations. Good music as well. The room is wheelchair accessible. Plan for the experience to take about an hour. Leave the kids at home please.

The food was absolutely delicious! The hotpot broth was flavorful and the appetizers we ordered were amazing. The steamed buns here are a must try. The staff were also super friendly and helpful. Will definitely come again.

I was excited to try this place as I have never had Hot Pot and it looked very interesting. The place is clean, the service was great, and the "sauce bar" had a great variety of stuff I haven't had before. That being said, I just really did not like the food (the broth tasted like dishwater to me). I would definitely say that it was an interesting experience, but the beef was fatty and gross and gray (maybe that is how it is supposed to be? I honestly have no idea, maybe I am just not used to this style of food). I just didn't like the flavors, but I would definitely recommend you give it a try if you want to try something different!

Amazing food. Seriously really good. If you like spicy broth this is you’re place. But they have non spicy broth too. Staff was friendly and the bathroom was really nice.

Overall, everything was great. Amazing food, reasonable price, and awesome customer service. I would recommend this place for great hot pot. Would absolutely come here again. Best hot pot in North Carolina.

It was amazing, from the moment we walked in and were enthusiastically greeted to the helpful explanations of the cooking process, to helping pick out gluten-free items. The food was great and a lot of fun to prepare. I loved the sauce bar where you get to make your own custom sauce for your dish. (See photo) I want to come back again and again to try many more things on the menu. Another nice touch is the peanuts and Chinese kimchee they bring you when you are seated.

This place was absolutely delicious and the staff was super friendly. My waiter Gary was very helpful and explained everything. He even made me a traditional sauce that pair perfectly with my meal. I recommend it more for a group meal but definitely a place to try!!
