Very authentic Chinese Hot Pot, the restaurant was full of Asian students! It is great value had a wide selection of seafood and meat. I would definitely recommend. While eating at the restaurant, I saw a number of non-Chinese people looking at the menu and coming in to take a look, but they looked a bit overwhelmed. I wanted to... More

very authentic sichuan style hot pot. It was grey and misty and this fits the weather in Chengdu, where this dish is most famous. It felt as if we had been transported to a small shop on a Chinese street. The broth was a bit bland - can't seem to escape the British influence entirely - but they have an... More

From half way down Dalry Road we could smell this delicious hot pot so we decided ee had to give it a go. The waitress was excellent and explained it all to us. She also gave us some great suggestions. You choose a broth and what you want to put in it. They put a massive pot on your table... More

We stumbled upon this little place one afternoon looking for a place to have lunch. At first my friends didn't fancy going in because it looks a bit dodgy but they finally caved in. To be honest it was my first Hot Pot experience and the waitress was very helpful, guiding us through and explaining what exactly we have to... More

Stumbled across this place by chance really but absolutely loved it. It's a very different dining experience altogether. You basically cook your own food. The choice of raw ingredients is great and they are all fresh and tasty. You can BYOB or buy there. The only thing I would say is sometimes it wasn't the easiest to communicate with staff... More

Reserved a table here and glad I did because it is only small and it gets busy! Obvious as to why, the food is very good and almost as good as the Hot Pot we had in Wuhan. My only niggle was that the hot and spicy broth could have been a touch spicier but that's just personal preference. The... More
