    We came in at 11:10 which was 20 minutes before our scheduled reservation, but we were not seated because, the host said they have to wait until all the 11:00 reservation showed up. Mind you, "walk ins" were seated. It does not make sense. I could have just lied so that, I will be seated. I had to go back to my car, sit just to be called 5 minutes after. The host is such a power tripper. I had a cast on my left arm. She could have showed compassion. Mind you it was not busy. There were a lot of empty tables. Even after we have eaten and there were still empty tables. The saving grace is our server. she was really nice and attentive. I forgot to get her name. Will be my last. Nothing special. There are are better Hot Pot places to go to.

    Host didnt know how to use the reservation tablet. We arrived earlier than our ressie and she said she would get us seated soon. We waited 2 hours. My kids are tall, server made fun of us to other servers thinking we were lying. Do i need to bring passport next time to prove their age? Ridiculous.

    Probably shouldn't have a 9pm seating if the kitchen and buffet spread will be closing at 9:30. 30 min isn't enough time for an all-you-can-eat service. Other than that, the food was good quality and staff was very courteous and attentive.

    My gf doesn’t like to eat curry and when I went here there was curry! Now it was decent but not as good as coco ichibanya but it was servicable. Not as spicy as I would like but good enough atleast I get to toss as much radishes as possible. Personally I’m not super into hot pot but my bf is which is why we have to go. Like almost every weekend he wants to get hot pot so I gotta find a place. She keeps insisting we try new hot pot places and I like to go here since it’s so close to where I live.

    The food and service are very good. However I was surprised to know they charge 18% of service charge in the receipt! Basically it is all you can eat. The server help you to clean the dish etc but not worth 18%! We have to go to the food bar and bring food by ourselves. Plus they try to charge tip on top with the 18

    Mo-Mo-Paradise TorranceResponded on June 14, 2022Hello! Thank you for your kind review and we apologize for any frustration regarding the service charge. Although we charge a service fee, any additional tip is appreciated, but not expected. This service fee is to ensure that all our employees receive a competitive wage with additional benefits. Unfortunately, the service charge must be taxed by the state of California. We hope this clarifies any confusion. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions or concern

    Service was excellent, our server was very attentive and fast to bring our special meets whenever we require a refill. She checked on us every few minutes and we were very well taken care of. The food was excellent also for all you can eat there is abundance of veggies rice and condiments on the self-serve area. All the meats are ordered through the server and was a very good quality. We had a party of six and a one and a half year-old baby and the table was a little cramped but cozy. We had two burners for six of us which was perfect but we all had to order that all you could eat. Children under four I think we’re free and there is a discount for seniors 65 and older.

    Good quality for AYCE shabu, and good variety of vegetables and proteins. A little light on sauces and condiments but enough. Unfortunately, no seafood which is the only negative. The home brewed soda bar is awesome and they even offer your choice of ice cream to end your meal.

    Have been here for the last 4 years and it's definitely our FAVORITE restaurant. We highly recommend the sukiyaki base with the raw egg dip (the eggs are pasteurized so they are safe!). The staff is so nice and work really hard to make sure the sides-bar is always stocked, empty plates are taken off the table, and basically everything is taken care of. They also remember my daughter from when she was just a baby which is incredibly sweet of them.

    Nothing beats all you can eat hot pot on a cold day. Meat is high quality and servers are attentive; didn't have to wait to flag them down for meat refills. The veggie bar provides you with enough selection of mushrooms, greens, meat balls to round out your meal. Always leave feeling overfull, but that's on me.
