“Surreal Dining Experience - But Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

Great, authentic food at the right price can be found in a dilapadited building for the adventurous diner. Enter the building adjacent to Philipine House restaurant and proceed up the escalator that hasn't worked in years. Go beyond the dubious internet cafe and the moi thai gym and push aside the colorful plastic beads that hang in the doorway (seriously). Inside, you'll find a hidden Chinese gem where you boil your own meat, vegetables, dumplings, etc in a variety of soups. Make your own sauce, and bring some friends - huge fun.

“try their ginseng base”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2010

amazing hot pot and great selection of sauces and dips! add it to your underground map of Abu Dhabi, away from mall chains, hotel restaurants, or glittery sea resorts. place is difficult to spot from street level, located inside a building next to a yoga center.

“The only exclusive hot pot restaurant in Abu Dhabi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2010

This is the only exclusive hot pot restaurant in Abu Dhabi as well as authentically Chinese.

All the soup stock options are very nice - one can't go wrong with any of the choices available. There is also a huge variety of food to be cooked, except very regularly, some fresh vegetables are not available.

The location is unfortunate as it is situated on the first floor of an ill-maintained building which stinks of urine and the escalators are not operational. In addition, it is also close to impossible to find parking around this area.
