    Momo Paradise is a great place to have hot pot in Arcadia. The all-you-can-eat meat is fresh, the server will bring fresh meat on many rounds. Fresh vegetables are self-service. Good selection of vegetables. Of the four choices of tea, passion fruit tea is good. Jasmin Tea can be sweetened or non-sweet. Free parking on the back.

    Momo increased their prices from $30 to $35 dollars which is a big jump. That doesn't even include the drink garden (lame). We still like the food, but will probably come less often now.

    We ordered tomato and Sukiyaki soups, I would like to highly recommend Sukiyaki which is really good better than the sauce I used to buy in Tokyo central, a Japanese supermarket located in West Covina, but the tomato soup tasted more bland with meat, I won’t order it anymore, probably only selecting Sukiyaki sauce should be the best choice for my next time. I was a little bit disappointed by the drinks, It's more of an American style sweet drink than a Japanese beverage, I would rather only have water next time. Overall, Varied Meats and vegetables are so valuable based on all you can eat price.

    We made reservations for our family to celebrate Mother’s Day @Momo Paradise in Arcadia. Our reservation was for 1:45pm. We were told that last call (for meat orders) would be @2:30. We did not know the restaurant closed @3pm for lunch hours. We felt a little rushed, and we wished that the restaurant had not accepted our 1:45 reservation knowing that they closed at 3pm. Other than feeling rushed to eat, the food was really good. Fresh vegetables to serve ourselves was great. We loved the yummy teas that were also self serve in the beverage station. We will make reservations for an earlier time for future dining.

    One of our family's favorite local hot pot/Shabu restaurants. The food, service and value makes us come back frequently. My daughter is a picky eater but likes coming here. Definitely worth trying if you are in the mood to eat a lot. For $2.50 more, you get to sample their drink station, so worth it.

    Server’s needs to be more attentive to customers. The only time the server ask as if we need anything was when we first got seated. We had to look and stop server for us to get help or any kind of service. The Rowland heights location has a better service compared to this one.

    Only 5 broth selections and none them are good. Meat is ok but still only 4 selections.Sesame sauce is too salty and not sweet at all. The service is excellent but the food just tasted salty but not much flavor.

    We had a horrible experience tonight (4.29.22). Our reservation was at 4:45pm and let the restaurant know ahead of time that we'll be there at 4:50-5:00. We got there at 4:55pm which's still within the 15 mins grace period. No one was at the front desk checking in customers. We've dined at this restaurant many times before, we always arrive prior to our reservation, but we and many other customers end up waiting for at least 30-40 mins just to be seated. There are always issue with logistics due to short on staffing and no on site manager to make sure the restaurant is operating in an attentive manner and reasonable speed.

    Hello, First of all I just wanted to say how amazing Jeff the server was. He understood our issue, apologized, and tried to fix the issue. The biggest issue during our dining experience was that we found a strand of hair in our soup. We notified some lady named Vanessa, who took it to another section of the store, and we saw her try to pluck out the hair and bring the soup back to us. We asked her if it was a new soup and she blatantly lied to us and said it was (when in fact we knew she didn’t). She should be relieved of her duty.

    Came with a friend. Overall, the food was okay. There are only 4 kinds of meat options. pretty limited IMO. What I don't like was that they added an 18% service charge to the bill without any advance notice. When we ask them about the service charge, they said it's for the kitchen staff so they get better pay. On top of that, they ask for tips to be added! First of all, I'm all in supporting kitchen staff but this is not the way to go. Basically, the owner doesn't want to pay their staff better so they pass on the cost to the customers by forcing us to pay an additional 18% and then ask us for the tip on top of that. That's just absurd!
