“A Fun Meal”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have been to a hot pot place in Tokyo a long time ago. This is our first experience in the US. We arrived on a Sunday in mid Sept. at 8:15pm. The place was packed, even the outside tables were almost full (3 out of 4). However, we were seated within 15 minutes. The tables at the edges have induction burners and the interior tables use canned fuel to heat the pots. I prefer the induction since the heat can be regulated. The waitress came right away and explained the menu. You are limited to 3 of each item which is plenty since 1 order is enough. There are 4-5 choices of broth. We picked the spicy & the herb broth. We were warned that the spicy was "HOT" and she was correct! we started with marinated beef, brisket, fatty beef, scallops, tilapia, scallops, calamari, shrimp, mussels, clams, spinach, mushrooms, corn, turnips, tofu, udon noodles, sprouts, etc. They brought out a pot with our broths within minutes. The pot had 2 compartments. It did not take long for the broth to boil. When the orders came out we were overwhelmed! We did mange to cook everything and eat all within 35-40 minutes and then ordered lamb, beef, shrimps, clams, spinach, mushrooms & turnips! The shrimp is quite large. You get 4 per order. You get lots of meat in each order so start with 1 at a time! Everything is fresh, delicious and piping hot! It was a fun experience! The service was great! The price is $23 per person but it is all U can eat and lots of meat & seafood choices. So be prepared & go there HUNGRY!

“A great experience!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been here multiple times now and keep introducing more friends and family to Hot Spot. The food is always fresh, with great all you can eat seafood, meat, noodles and veggies. The broth is healthy, there is no added salt or msg. The service is always great, and they have some nice happy hour and drink specials. It is hard for us not to go overboard on the shrimp and scallops cooked to perfection!

“Fun experience and delicious food”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

I've never been to a hot pot type restaurant before, so I don't know how this restaurant compares with others. What I do know is that the food was delicious and everything seemed very fresh. If you don't know, hot pot is similar to fondue. They bring two types of broth to your table and you cook whatever ingredients you've chosen at your table. It was a little pricey, $23 per person, but it is all you can eat, so that's not too bad.
