                                                  It's a place I would go back over and over again. Nothing can be complained. The meat quality is good, vegetable is fresh, and multiple choices of drinks. A decent place for friends and family gathering. The only con would be there's a time limit of 90 mins of dining.

                                                  The food was excellent and fresh as usual. But the service is always lacking. The girl at the front is rude and looks like she just hates her job with a passion. She greeted everyone with an attitude.

                                                  The restaurant was very clean and I love how they have a reservation system so you can guarantee a spot and not have to wait so long at the restaurant. The tonkotsu broth was very savory and the veggies were fresh. The pork shoulder meat were also very fresh.

                                                  Good Food, Good Service, Plenty of Parking (part of large strip mall), decent price but some changes from the past. In the past, it was 2 meats as it shows on the web site for about $22 and All You Can Eat (AYCE) for $25. Only AYCE now. Also there use to be a separate charge for mutiple soup bases. Now everyone gets their own (split pot) . I beleive drinks were included before, now a separate charge. There is also a surcharge of 18% for all diners (many place before only had it for tables of 6 or 8 plus). 90 minute eating limit, probably enforced if there are diners waiting but 90 minutes should be plenty. Meats are limited to only four for lunch and six for dinner. The have a fatty beef short plates which is very tasty and a beef eye or round which is lean and not as tender but heathier. The are also addional side items including a tasty beef curry. Veggies are plentiful and meals include ice cream desert.

                                                  Momo has been a favorite for my family and office co-worker ever since they open. The only down side is that the soda used to be included in the all you can eat menu. Other than that if you are a fan of Japanese Sukiyaki, this is the place to be.

                                                  I made a reservation at 7 p.m. and went there, but there were so many things that were not available and the service was slow, so it was inconvenient. The food was too salty to eat. The meal time limit is 1 hour and 30 minutes, but when that time approached, he urged me to pay for the food and told me to get ready to go out because I had 10 minutes left. I'm so disappointed.

                                                  If an 18% service charge is going to be automatically added to a bill, a certain level of service is expected. However, only the barest minimum service was provided. Not sure that the food is worth going back for again if you get charged for no service.

                                                  Definitely a great place to dine at if you are looking for something nice and hot to eat. The environment here is pretty good. The servers here are really friendly. Noise level isn't too bad. Their online reservation process is really quick and simple.

                                                  Been going here for years and it never disappoints. Their meat selection is small but the quality is the best.

                                                  It has been 3 years since last time (before pandemic) I was there. As there are many AYCE shabu restaurants out there, Mo-Mo has very limited selection of vegetables available. Meat quality is still great. Our lady server was very nice, but some male servers seem not very friendly as when we asked for more broth, he did not answer, and made us wait for 10 minutes before it came.

                                                  The restaurant has no lemon/lime for my water. We had a big party and was doing AYCE. They came by to rush us out after our last call saying there’s another reservation waiting for our table. Why are you rushing out your guests??!!! They picked your place to get together eat/drink/socialize.

                                                  Momo paradise was a great place for hotpot! We got the sukiyaki and tonkotsu broth and it was both delicious. They had a great bar selection with fresh veggies, tofu, fishballs, mushrooms, etc and everything was super yummy. There was also a drinks bar which had many flavors of teas and included a yuzu jasmine tea that was super refreshing and yummy. Overall solid ayce hotpot and would come again:)

                                                  The host was wonderful and forgiving about the other diner being late due to road closures around the restaurant. Our server was delightful as always and the food bar was stocked to the brim with all ingredients. Tonkotsu bone broth was a tad more transparent than before. Overall 5 out of 5 experience
