A nice place for large group gathering. It is steamboat place..everyone just dip to the hot pot and eat. I like the hotpot that can split in half, so one half we can order non spicy herbal soup while the other spicy. There are great variety to choose from menu,ie, meats,prawn, fish balls, noodles, veggies. This is not like those... More

This second visit to Hot Pot Hot Pot was much better. Being a newbie the first time was less than memorable. We ordered the broth - half half - half spicy-half house original broth. This time we got heat level #2 on the spicy scale which was more palatable. The broth is key to the dish. Several unidentified herbs were... More

Came here on a Saturday night hoping to grab dinner. As we drove by, it was obvious by the amount of people waiting outside that we were not going to be eating anytime soon. So... we drove elsewhere... We figured we try our luck again the next day. On Sunday we showed up around 2:30pm. Plenty of parking. When we... More

Unique. Outrageous. Surprising. Delicious in an almost underground sort of fashion. Imagine a large divided-down-the-middle boiling cauldron of tumbling herbs and spices in the center of your table with a burner underneath to keeps things cooking. Now surrround the center with an assortment of fresh meats, vegetables, and various noodles. What would you want to do? Why, of course. Once... More

A very unique restaurant! It's best to go with a group of people. You share the hot pot. You have several choices of broth and you can order up to 2 different kinds of broth. For people who like spicy, they can order and cook on one side of the pot, and for those that just want the original, you... More

Great value and tasty food. Really liked the spicy soup; the original was good too. Not as herbal as i thought it would be. Very flavorful We ordered tons of food and it came up to $20/ pp. We were Stuffed! Would love to come back with a bigger group!

When you are in the mood for Chinese steam boat, go to this place. It comes in 4 different broth (House Original, Half and Half , House Spicy and Rejuvenate). Being a vegetarian, I normally asked for the House Spicy but use water instead of broth. They pretty good selection of vegetables (Tong Ho-Chrysantemum, Lettuce, Watercress, Bak Choy), Lotus Root,...

Chinese hot pot is a lot like Shabu Shabu (Japanese for Swish Swish). You get a pot of boiling broth you choose what you want to eat and swish, swish you cook it. Simple. Little Fat Sheep gives you the choice of three styles of broth and several levels of heat. I am a spicy food addict, and I went... More
