Being mostly unfamiliar with this type of place, the visit was positive for our family (teenagers). The staff was thin, but worked together well. The food certainly met expectations.

From a hot pot restaurant, you really expect just three things: 1. Good soups 2. Fresh meat / vegetables 3. Quick service This restaurant checks all the boxes.
