4.5 stars. Affordable, fast, and relatively fresh food. The meat is a little fatty, but that's understandable given the price and AYCE nature. After eating through almost everything on the menu, we unanimously agreed that our favorite items were the stuffed fish balls and the enoki mushrooms. Although sometimes they didn't bring everything we ordered, that was understandable because we ordered a lot. Out of all the soups I tried, I would have to say the tom yum is still my favorite. Two tips: make sure to load up at the sauce bar and grab some ramen noodles to soak up all the flavor at the very end of your meal! Overall, we had a great experience, and enjoyed the food and cheap drinks. Plus, they took reservations for a group of 17 (split between bbq and hot pot). Large groups, this place is perfect for you!
One word:CURRY!!! You can call be a hotpot regular, but I have never tasted a broth that was SOOO flavorful and delicious without being diluted by the food. Yes, it is pricy for an all you can eat hotpot, but the curry made the experience so much more worth it. This is a review for the hotpot only--didn't get a chance to try the BBQ yet. Recommendations: In the hotpot portion, you should definitely make sure to order lots of meats--specifically the beef!!!! Something that kind of irked me was that they don't include much of the meat, but include lots of the greens and other veggies that don't cost much. It filled us up because we had to finish it all, when the meat portioning wasn't really equivalent to the portion of non-meat items. Aside from that, I recommend the fuzhou fish balls and arden lettuce. After countless visits to hotpot spots, these were by far the best fish balls I've ever tried. The skin texture was bouncy and soft and full of juice, unlike the previous ones that I've tried. Again, curry is a must try for a broth!!!!!! For sauce: I recommend trying Hoisin sauce(2) mixed with peanut sauce (1) in a 2:1 ratio. Green onions, cilantro, and sesame oil also goes well with it, but they aren't really necessary unless you just want some extra flavoring. Service: The ambiance and environment was beautiful and modern, including the bathroom too. The service could definitely be a lot better in comparison to other hot pot restaurants, though. The servers didn't seem that attentive and only came around a few times to help out. They didn't really check up on us, aside from when we needed to order and called them over. I definitely love their sauce selection--it's so huge! The restaurant even offers two types of free desserts and they taste extremely good for a restaurant that isn't known for their sweets. Overall, I am all for their curry broth, and their quality of foods, sauces, and desserts. But there needs an improvement in service. (For the establishment, I recommend getting a tablet service which makes it much easier than writing down what each customer wants, so that the staff has more time to check on the tables) HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE DON'T SLEEP ON THE CURRY IT REALLY IS AMAZING!!!
Great spot with efficient service.  The food is very tasty and super fresh.
