I came here for a birthday dinner.  It's byob which is always awesome. You can choose multiple types of broth to go in the giant hot pot in the middle of your table.  For a flat rate of about $25 they will bring you endless meat of different varieties.  Additionally, you can get unlimited food from the buffet which has a gigantic variety of stuff including vegetables, seafood, fish balls, tripe, tendon, sauces, and more.   All in all it's a solid deal for all you can eat.  I agree with some other reviewers that the servers are not hovering checking in frequently.  However, we constantly had servers stopping by refilling our broth pot and you can go up to the buffet to get more food whenever you want.  Overall a great experience!

This was my favorite hot pot restaurant.  The food was wonderfully fresh and delicious. It was a fun lunch to have with friends.

Outside: Classic Downtown Restaurant Inside: Traditional Chinese Hot Pot Food: Hot Pot Buffet Service: Pretty Chinese Price: $25pp - AYCE Little Sheep is a chain out of China that does Mongolian style hot pot. If you don't know what that is, it's basically Chinese fondue. You order your dishes raw and then cook them in communally shared pots of broth - with some variation on flavors available. I love hot pot, and Little Sheep delivers. It is not 100% authentic but it is also not the westernized kind of Chinese food you may be used to so if you are unfamiliar with hot pot, come in with an open mind. If you expect general tso's chicken and crab rangoons you are likely to be disappointed. The buffet consists of lots of food, mostly veggies and tofu that you can add to your pot but you will also have a chance to order specialty meats to be delivered (raw) to your table. Try everything. Especially the fish balls stuffed with roe. Absolutely delicious! Now, you may have seen that I mentioned the service was "pretty Chinese" let me explain that in China you do not get the same kind of service as in America. The waitresses don't check in on you and ask how things are or if you need a drink refill. In china, when you want service, you literally just shout "WAITRESS!!!" and a server comes to your table. Little sheep is perhaps a hair more attentive than this but be prepared to flag someone down when you want something. There is a lot of great food in Philly, especially in this part of Philly and Little Sheep is a great experience. But $25 feels a little pricey to me. I've also been to this location on several occasions and found that when they switched to the buffet style, the selection and quality suffered a bit. That isn't to say the place isn't fantastic, it IS! But as someone who went there before the change, I preferred ordering everything from the table and the change causes me to rate a star lower. If you've never had hot pot, Little Sheep is a great place to try it for the first time. And if you have, it's still a great place to get your fix. Check this place out. You won't be disappointed.
