A favored restaurant practicing proper Covid restrictions and a good time was had by the 5 of us. The service was very good. Actually, everything was very good. The only negative I experienced was me, and only me, not being able to find anything to whet my appetite and leaving still hungry, despite the comprehensive menu. The initial portions are quite substantial, with only one of us ordering more, and everyone left quite satisfied. Still a favorite special-occasion place for us.

They was very under staff, slow, and over work. They customers service was terrible and it took over a hour to place our order. We only was able to eat one bowl and not able to eat all you can. By the time we received our food it was 30 minutes later and we have to pay for parking. When you get two hours of complaining free. This was a terrible birthday dinner.

It used to be a great experience prior to COVID.


However, the lack of self service defeats the purpose of the create your own.

There's no control of how much or how little you want, despite the "double check mark" option. It just loses its touch.

Additionally, the service was lackluster. Sure, there was a large party as opposed to just my dinner of two, but, the wait time for my fiancèe's food was horrible. It got mixed up with the large party, as we were told.

Lastly, the food combinations that we picked were not executed, as initially stated.

We weren’t charged if that tells you anything. Just not good. Everything is too something... too salty, too sweet, to cold, toooo gross.

The hours were wrong online and on their door so we arrived on time to a closed restaurant. We practically had to beg to get inside to place a last minute to go order. Not only were they dismissive of our business but they were out of the items we desired. This was a much different experience from the lunch meeting where I discovered this place and won’t likely be coming back for dinner anytime soon.

The food was fantastic. All of the vegetables were fresh and cooked to perfection. The sauces marinated beautifully with everything. And I did not really have to add any seasoning. I came all the way from Covington, Ga but I will definitely be back and bring a few friends with me too!

Both ladies and men’s restrooms were dirty. We were not seated in the bar but the bartender was our waiter. Definitely made it harder to get things or get his attention. Not sure if this is b/c they are short staffed due to COVID or it this is normal. Food was delicious! Just wished the service was better and cleaner.

Ingredients on the assembly line were of satisfactory quality. The bill for the amount we ate was very reasonable. The youngsters in our group liked the unique format and freedom to create.

Those are the pluses.

The restaurant is spartan. Table tops sticky. Service personnel eager to do the minimum and go back to chatting. Ambiance a negative. Recommended only based on pigging out and pleasing the youngsters.

We had a very kind server. Didn’t catch her name. She has beautiful rich dark skin and is slim. She seated us exactly where I noted in my reservation. They didn’t have ginger ale but she and the bar staff mixed together a tasty concoction that was delicious. We sat there too long but she didn’t throw us out. She was super nice and asked us to come again. We certainly will and will make sure she is tipped well. Such a great time. Great food! My 9th visit to this location since 2014. Always hits the spot. So good!

Concept is cool. Food was great. Little on the expensive side for our family of five. Our kids didn’t eat enough to justify the price we paid for them.

The place was just to dirty. Food on the floor by the bar and on the counters. The servers acted like they don’t care. The overall place wasn’t the best. Plus it kind of messed up my birthday celebration with the food on the floor and servers not caring.

We were visiting from out of town and looking for somewhere good to eat. My boyfriend and I LOVE stir fry so we thought, why not? The instructions were explained clearly and the food was amazing. Server was attentive and bar drinks were delicious. I loved being able to pick exactly what I wanted. My boyfriend, who is a vegetarian also allergic to onions and peppers, was thrilled about the tofu, egg, and vegetables selection. What a cool idea.

My second time going but tonight was defiantely the wrong night to go (Anime weekend) the event was cool and actually was a great distraction for the kids being that it was 30 min wait (with a reservation) and 20+ min wait for food. The manager was very accommodating and our server was really nice. I love this place and would definitely recommend.... just on a night that's not so busy!

This was my first time at the restaurant. Overall, I had a good experience. I would’ve given the restaurant 5 stars if there weren’t so many gnats or fruit flies flying near the food and around us at the table.

Excellent stir fry/Mongolian Barbeque experience, rare to find in Atlanta area. Excellent selections of vegetables, starches, meats, sauces, and seasonings, served as choice of traditional bowl, salad, soup, or wrap. One price for unlimited servings; shrimp available as upgrade.

Having been to the original restaurant, the real Chow baby, I was familiar with the format. The food was delicious and when you construct your meal yourself, you can’t blame the chef if it doesn’t come out well!

The ingredients were above average in quality. The table where we were seated had a hole in the middle. The dining room appeared to be well worn and in need of an update.

The value was excellent for the quality and quantity, but this is not a romantic place. It’s far better suited for college students than middle-aged adults.

There are so many items to chose from on the food bar, anyone could make a dish to suit them. The food is fresh and cooked quickly. The service was great. We will be back.
