Long time favourite for lunch. About $13 for a beef hotpot. Fast service always in and out in about 30 to 40 minutes. Good portion size have never left hungry. I dont think I would go for dinner or take a date there but have gone with work mates for lunch and will be back.

Had lunch here three times over three weeks. Good serves; well presented; and very courteous staff. It is in the Orchid Arcade along with other Asian restaurants and shops. This one is very popular with both tourists and locals. One word of warning - about two-thirds of the standard menu meals are quite hot because of chili but we loved... More

I like that you can help yourself to water, green tea and Kim chee for starters... The meals are great sizes and just delicious hot pots. I had BBQ beef and veggies and it was so hot and delicious. Id def return and recommend to others. It also came with miso soup. Everyone at our table was extremely satisfied.

It's in the upstairs of a mall. But this is really good food. Rice, chicken veggies and spices in a hot pot. Takes 15 minutes before you can partake and not burn your mouth but, at the bottom of the pot is this wonderful hard rice with all the flavor baked in. Simply wonderful. One pot could feed four.

I had the kim chee stew. Wow, it was hot. My husband had the spicy pork; it was really good but really spicy. They know how to make it hot. Really good food.
