This was SO GOOD!

First time I had Korean hot pot and I loved it! For about 10 dollars you'll get more than enough to eat in a classy environment with friendly staff. I recommend the pickled garlic and coriander to put in your hot pot :)

Very easy to find and close to our guesthouse. Very fast service and quite an enjoyable lunch, also nice to have one pot for each person which simplifies it compared to having one big bowl. Nice atmosphere, and the decor is very nice. In all it was a great experience and will come back again if I have time during... More

We lived in China and had hot pot for dinner at least twice a week. The Bull's hot pot was nearly as good as those we had in China. We had base stock for cooking our food with a choice of two dipping sauces. There was a fantastic selection of meat and vegetables. We really enjoyed the Mushroom Combo plater... More

The Bull is very well-known for the various types of soup and gourmet meat, veggies, and other ingredients that you may add in the soup of your choice and cooked on your table. Every time I go there, I noticed the food was fresh and service was friendly. Keep it up, Bull!

Went with high hopes, left disappointed. The place lacks any charm and the food was bad. We were a large group and ordered a variety of different dishes. The redeeming factor was their kimchee!

Broths and sauces could use a touch more punch or bolder flavor a but still a good UB joint. Would go again for sure, and it isn't terribly expensive

Interactive food - love it. This place offers spacious private rooms for groups. Each setting incorporates your own hot pot, with 'Lazy Susans' in the middle of each table allowing easy access to the plethora of vegetables, meat and noodles. Fresh, tasty, filling and fun.

The Bull hot pot has lately been a trendy restaurant in downtown. The main branch located near that Grand Plaza is quite crowded, usually there is a line of people in most branches. Service was good and fast.

Located inside what looks like an office building, even the locals come here for hotpot. I recommend the meat only - the "fish" was frozen squid and the fishballs weren't great at all. Unlike most hotpots around Asia, the broth is unsalted and unflavoured although you choose from a menu (milky tomato, bone broth, spicy, etc). It gets better the... More
