HOT POT IS MY JAM! Taiwanese hot pot is seriously one of the most comforting things on a cold day. And in SF, there are plenty of cold days to go around. It's hard to get a good broth flavor, so when our good friends invited us to try out their new favorite hot pot place, we had to go.... More

First time eating at a place like this and it was interesting! The service was attentive. The price was reasonable. The food was continual and delicious. I suggest to go hungry and willing to spend a few hours here.

Hot Pot is a preparation style in Southern China cuisines. "The Pot's" is better then any hot pot I had in China. It's all you can eat, the food is fresh steamy and spicy hot if you like that. It's very clean, and the seating is a bit tight, but comfortable. Great winter food to warm you up. Service is... More

Went here with a few friends on a Tuesday night and it was good. We ordered 4 different broths/soups, and my favorite one was the szechuan chili one. I kept pairing it with the rounds of kobe beef that we had coming and it was delish! The little dips and condiments are essential to enhance the side dishes. Would definitely... More

The Pot's is nothing short of awesome. Not a bad deal for ~$25 per-person and they accepted a reservation for 4 people (most other hot-pot places never take reservations unless you have a huge party). We were feeling spicy and went straight for the fire-spicy broth. You'll be handed a sheet of paper where you can note down your items... More

For all the foodies out there, you have to try this restaurant. It's somewhat like fondue but instead of cheese or oil, you have your choice of various soup bases like curry, spicy miso, etc. then you choose from a plethora of eclectic foods to put into the soup. Between the five of us we had two different pots going... More

This is a fun experience if you want something different for dinner. Depending on where you are staying you may have to travel a bit, but it's worth it. This is where the local Chinese community goes to eat. We were there on a Monday evening and it was full. We had the hot pot, which is what they're all... More

Excellent. This is a new restaurant on the corner. Great for Hot Pot lovers to cook fresh meats and veggies in a pot with 2 different flavor soups. Fresh ingredients and friendly owner who's innovative to create more soup flavors like green tea! :-) Great for large groups. Once price for all you can eat when I ate here like... More
