    Always come here during colder season. Good quality hotpot with nice meat choices along with various type of vegetables. My mom got a 20% off for senior discount while my little kid who is under 4 years old eat for free there.

    Soup and meat were delicious. Wish the vegetables/sides were more fully stocked. I didn’t like that tips was automatically added without my choice for amount. In addition to the automatic gratuity, tips suggestions were also at the bottom of the receipt,

    We come here often. We always enjoy the food. Service this time wasn’t great. Brandon, our server, forgot our (alcoholic) drink order, and didn’t really come to check on us very often, and wasn’t super friendly, and was borderline dismissive. Food and ambiance were great, though.

    They automatically add 18% service charge on the bill and I think it is not fair to customers.

    Very clean and great service. Quality of meats were good. Selections are very limited. Market station needs improvement in more variety of vegetables and condiments including sauces. They don’t have minced garlic, hot sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, lemon slices, and limited selections of vegetables. If they have more condiments, it would be great!!

    We liked the restaurant, the location, and the service. We got seated at 2 pm because my friend was late and were told that we had to leave by 3 pm because the restaurant closed @ 3 pm. The restaurant's website says we can stay for 90 minutes and that the last seating is @ 2 pm. We were able to stay until about 3:00ish and was given a discount. We just wished that we were told from the beginning so that we could have come back for dinner instead and enjoyed our meal better and longer! :(( The food is ok, for the price tho' I was expecting more. Thank you.

    Did not keep customers informed how much longer of the wait time. Did not check on the customers often enough. Customer has to wait and keep flagging the waiter for additional meat. Once the waiter got the orders, the meat came out right a way. If you have the bell system on every table or meat order request self-ordering system maybe could avoid the delays of serve.

    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.

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
