First things first, the food at this restaurant is excellent and I was a repeat customer until this occurred recently. After enjoying a wonderful meal, all-you can eat hot-pot my bill was $83.00. I gave the waiter a $100 bill, he comes back almost 10...minutes later asking if I had anything smaller, keep in mind the place was packed so I know the $100 bill could have been broken. I then gave the waiter $95 plus an additional $20 and asked him to please break the $20 so I could give him an additional $10 tip. Instead, the waiter comes back, hands me five one dollar bills. This was not a misunderstanding, it was purposely done. Use caution paying in cash at this establishment, use a debit or credit card only. The waiter ended up taking a $27 tip on an $83 bill.More

So I reviewed this restaurant last year strictly for it’s authentic Chinese hotpot, which is terrific! This time we wanted take-out so ordered off the Chinese menu. WOW!! Really tasty authentic dishes. Not that everything-tastes-the-same you get at many places. Each dish had very unique,...favors that are delicious.More

This place is fun. Traditional hot-pot. You choose your broth and then order your raw meats, seafood, and veggies. All goes in the big pot then eat family style. Been to China.....this is delicious and traditional hot-pot!

Read the reviews and thought we'd take a chance. Yes, the server could do a better job of describing the food choices and the hot pot process BUT he was eager to please, available when we needed him and good at his job. We had...a great lunch. Reasonably priced. We will return.More

There were 11 of us that came here for a birthday celebration. We had reservations but it is a small place so we took up a lot of room. They seem to be better known for their hot pot but we ordered many different dishes...off the menu. Each item was very good. Not everything came out at once but enough to keep us going each time. Our server handled the task efficiently and never appeared to be overwhelmed with serving a party of 11. She never made us feel rushed and listened attentively and answered all our questions. I wouldn't hesitate to return.More

We are a group of seven old friends, really cannot and should not eat that much. But since it is all you can eat, it feels great that you can order anything you want. We stay there the entire afternoon, spending most of the time...talking then eat as much as we can in a heathy way.More

We love treating ourselves to hot pot at Chuan Shabu and have had nothing but great food and service each time. We usually go for hot pot but have loved the few chinese dishes we tried as well. It is pretty expensive but worth it...and the $5 mai tai drinks are delicious!More
