    Personal Hotpots. They don't joke about the spiciness levels, it gets pretty hot.

    Beef soup would be my choice. You would probably need the mild soup base.

    Come here super early if you don't want to wait. Don't get the Taiwanese hot pot unless you enjoy that type of spicy.

    My family loves to come here. I've tried most of the hot soups and they all taste great. I especially like the Taiwanese spicy soup. It's pretty spicy. Dinner can get crowded sometimes.

    Prepare to wait too long to sit and eat. Avoid to go there during lunch hours.

    The waiters aren't kindness. Just rushing and throwing out orders on the table. Very sad with this place.

    Great flavors! Lots of choices to choose from. My favorite is the stinky tofu pot and their spicy hot pot. Love the individual sized portion. Could get pricy, but definitely satisfying.

    Hokkaido milk tea! I was skeptical. First impression was too sweet. Then I was addicted. Our pots were great too

    The wait is always horrible. See if you can plan something else to do after you get a number that fits like 40m-1hr

    Oh and the Hokkaido milk tea is delicious! I can't seem to figure out exactly what the secret ingredient is but I feel like there's a hint of coconut creme in it!

    The Japanese style is divine but you can definitely share one pot with two people. It was certainly a struggle trying to finish that pot alone.

    This place has serious management issues. Open at 11am and they can only seat one third of the seats. I guess not enough waiters working. There are about 30 people waiting yo be seated.

    Request not to sit in the dungeon room. It makes you feel claustrophobic.

    So cute seating! Little school desks hence the name Class 302. The mochi and caramel custard pudding are so good as add-ons!

    Lamb pot is my fave! More food than it looks. Love the lunch price that comes with black or green tea. Service is hit or miss.. As is the wait time. Just make sure you're not in a rush when you come!

    Make sure to ask for ice in your water And order any drinks when you order the food and remind them when they bring out your food about your drinks. (They tend to almost always forget.)
