Selected with the help of our guide, we would never have thought of eating here even if we could have found it. Very grateful that we dined here!
If you don't know what a hot pot is, think fondue Chinese style. You cook your own food with the help and encouragement of your waiter/waitress. Chose the type of "broth" that you want to cook your food in (we had a split pot with half mild the other spicy) then let the fun begin.
They provide aprons (very necessary) and covers for the seats and even my backpack on the chair. Once you have chosen your meat and vegetables also consider noodles and watch the "noodle dance" as the noodles are prepared at the table. Great fun especially for children.
It is more than just a meal, it is a social event supported by the staff. If you have to wait to get a table you will be seated in a waiting area with free tea, snacks and games to play whilst you wait. If you need help choosing from the menu (and you do not have a guide) and English speaking member of staff will be found to help you.
The prices are very reasonable, but the surprise is the service level. Outside central Beijing you can often feel that staff have no interest at all to the point of being rude. Here the staff ethos is excellent thanks to good management. When I asked the waitress (via our guide) if she would accept a tip, she said that she was only doing her job!
Fruit supplied to counter the fiery elements that we selected free of charge. Very well satisfied and a great evening out. Congratulations to the staff and their management.
