    The place is understaffed. You still have to wait despite empty tables. You are usually turned away without reservations. The meat is very good. They include 18% service charge after tax and solicits more. They allow 90 minutes which is sufficient for most people but it is an invisible pressure to eat and leave. 20% discount for people over 65.

    All you can ask for at a shabu shabu place expect the service charge of 18%. A bit over the top especially it was a table of 3. I can understand if it was 6 or more, but 3?

    Staff was accommodating with our seating request for a table with two hot plates/burners because someone in our party has diet restrictions and cannot use the same shabu pot. The food was fresh and good quality. The ice cream at the end was a great way to complete the meal. Interior of the restaurant was clean with soft music playing. Overall it's a pleasant dining environment. Reservation is highly recommended.

    There were no shabu tongs for fresh meats provided, so I did requested for 1 x additional pair of chop stick but the waiter forgot about it, i have to use spoon on table to pick up fresh meat into shabu pot instead. I don’t want to use my chopsticks to touch fresh meat because I’m afraid that my stomach will be upset. I only use a chopstick for cooked meat.

    I've been here a couple times. Food is good and place is nice. Servers also nice. Only one complaint is that this recent time we went. We put in a reservation for 4 people but unfortunately got seated at a small table with only one stove top. We were told that other tables were unavailable when we asked to get seated at a table with two stove tops so we can have our own broths. We each wanted our own flavor and had different preferences for added vegetables,etc. however had no choice but to share. I didn't appreciate that as it affected our dining experience. That was the purpose of making a reservation- to get a table to accomadate for the number of people in our party..

    It was my first time there. The decor and atmosphere are nice for a casual dinner. The price is reasonable. Just wish there would be a wider selection of vegetables and other ingredients to choose from at the bar. The drink station is well equipped with many selections. Service was ok. We had to wait for the waitress to fill up the soup for quite some time that the pot was almost drying out. Maybe it was because they were short of staff. Overall, I still recommend this place.

    Probably one of the cleanest and most well-organized all you can eat shabu shabu in town. On the pricier end but you're paying for the service, cleanliness, and quality of the dishes. Meat selection is not great but good enough.

    My grandkids love it here. I have one 14 and one 10. This is the only place that can satisfy their growing needs of beef chucks. The servers are attentive, not at all balk at the children’s speed of eating. I am sorry that I do sound so pathetic that I cannot satisfy them at home. Who has the time to prepare all the cut up vegetable, tofu and my god, all the boba. Six stars review for MOMO. And the broth are tasty. I don’t think I can prepare that good. Money well spent!

    Everything is great except that we hope they have Vegetarian discount. We didn’t eat any meat but still needed to pay full price for the meal. We did feel a bit unfair especially when the other mo-mo paradise gave us 20% for vegetarian dining. But the food is good and the service is very nice.

    My family and I love coming here. We first ate at another location early this year and have since visited about 6 times now. The quality of the meat and service is always great. We never feel rushed or unsatisfied. I wish more Japanese restaurants like Mo Mo Paradise were all you can eat. This place really reminds me of being back in Japan

    We had a bad experience due to the fact that we were given the 8:45 reservation not knowing they close at 9:30pm for all you can eat. By the time we sat down and start getting food, it was 9pm. So basically it was a 30 minutes choke down your food kind of experience. For AYCE, the restaurant should not give out reservations with so little time. It's not fair.

    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.
