Great hotpot options. The first table voucher allowed us to dine 50% off the hotpot menu which is a big saving. We also ordered the Chinese BBQ items which we paid normal price that we expected. Chinese BBQ is similar to kebabs but the meat on the skewer is generally smaller and usually seasoned with cumin and other spices. Must try: Lamb BBQ.

Overall, a great place to dine with 3 menu options - Hotpot, Chinese BBQ and individual dishes cooked to order. If you are a fan of the Northern Chinese cuisine meaning you love spicy dishes with chillies, Sze Chuan peppercorn that gets your taste bud tingling, this is the place to go to. So far, the best in service in comparison with all the other Chinese restaurants that are offering similar menu options. Will definitely be my friends and my go to place if we want Hotpot and Chinese BBQ. Its BYO too. Perfect for us wine drinkers. Oh and you order off the app by scanning their QR code on the table. Everything done through the app. Very modern. Lovely experience. Well done team.

We went as a group of 4 and ordered from both the hot pot and BBQ menus. Food was very good! We would recommend the skewers (esp. lamb and beef). It was a little difficult to get hold of a staff as they were busy with clearing tables and getting other things sorted but they did provide good service where they could. We would definitely go again :-) thanjs

Had never had a Hot Pot meal before. The lady's were friendly but service was a bit lacking. Not offered water or drinks etc. Never been there before so not told how it works. Also the price keeps increasing the more you want of what I would call basics, you pay for the base broth, then more for the meat, then for dipping sauce and again if you want vegetables you pay again (also no rice). It did taste nice but wouldnt recommend if you are looking for a filling meal. We ended up going out and purchasing food afterwards. For the "Full price" or after the discount I wouldnt call it value for money. Not what I would call a traditional Asian meal that "Kiwi's" would be used to.

We been there before last year and love the food so we came back for second last night. The food is absolutely yummy, I love hotpot/steamboat and from all I tried so far, this restaurant is my favorite. Their homemade prawn balls, fish balls just so delicious. And now they have bbq skewer which we love it. We definitely will come back again.

The staff and the owner/manager very friendly and very nice. The service is great and the place is clean. What more I can say? Highly recommended everyone, you have to try it yourself :)

We had a great time there. We love hotpot in winter. We chose two flavours for soup base but ate with only beef stock one. others were too hot for us. All other food was nice.We ordered a lot and ate all! service was great. She explained us kindly when we asked many questions. Would be good if other food is half price too!

Make your own food. What an experience! Love their home made food. Just be aware that it can get cold during winter. Understand that they need to keep some windows open but the cold can get you when you first come into the restaurant.
