    We were seated late and the hostess was smiling while telling me how she was JUST about to wipe our table for us. We got seated and waited 5 minutes for a server and I had to go up to a server myself to ask for assistance. Server kept walking away whenever we needed him and attitude was whatever. Another table near us was being extremely loud the entire time but no one did anything about it. It was rude. We've had better service than this before, but those servers weren't present when I went.

    The food was really good and they had a lot of nice extras. The only complaint was that they ignored our table for an half an hour so we couldn’t order food. However, I would really recommend this place because the food is really good and the service was good every other time i went.

    The food is good. Service needs serious improvement because they’re already charging an 18% fee while everything is self serve except for the meats. Our waitress also limited the amount of meats we could order when we had a party of 12. No vegetarian option either, their tomato broth is made with some sort of fish or meat involved.

    Food and services were delicious and excellent. And quality of food were very consistent as usual! The only issue was the billing, it looked like the restaurant or servers tried to cheat on the bill. The service charge were 18% mandate and the sales taxes were assigned according to the location from Rowland Heights. But it didn’t add up. The restaurant servers or the restaurant ownership were using total items price added services charges and times sales taxes instead of adding sales taxes!! Then it meant either the items prices increasing or tips increasing to close to 20% ?! I think this’s bad practice for doing business!!! I was hurry so I didn’t complain to the restaurant… because of 3 to 4 dollars extra charge for nothing…

    Food is amazing. Beef quality is really good compared with other shabu shabu or AYCE restaurant. I don’t mind paying more as long as the quality is consistent and better. Taking my friend who is from different country and he was impressed with the food and service. The only reason I took down one star was the women’s restroom needs attention. One of the toilet couldn’t flush, so the one who used it before me left their waste there. The handle was broken. Toilet paper were all over the floor. Considering you paid more than other restaurants, I expected the restaurant need to pay more attention to the cleanliness of the restroom and fix the toilet. It affected me from enjoying the meal.

    Brought my brothers here for a couple of their birthdays, my second time, and I enjoyed it as much as I did last time. As I've said on my Google review, the meat isn't superior to any other shabu-shabu restaurants but it doesn't really need to be. Only a few broth choices which again is perfectly fine. The part that sells this place is the "salad bar" which is mainly stuff to add to your soup, the free curry, and the assortment of JP drinks available. However, it is unsatisfyingly pricey especially considering it opens up at 1630(430pm) lunch is 25$ and dinner/weekends is 35$, so you either have to be there when it opens or pay the dinner fee. Making a reservation is definitely recommended in case it happens to be busy, but it's a simple and quick process.

    It’s great food and a great experience. They are charging an 18% service charge automatically to pay staff. I’m not sure why they wouldn’t just raise prices a little bit to pay the staff. We had a friendly server and good service cleaning tables of dishes.

    Had a great time with my family! As a tip, make reservations to avoid the 3 hour wait. We were seated immediately and our our service was excellent. The meat quality was really good and cuts were presented nicely. The flavors of 4 choices of broth were delicious as well as the Farmer’s Market bar of salad, veggies, and sauces. My kids loved the curry and rice pairing too! The beverage bar was a good variety! I’ve cream was a delicious treat! Great experience for us foodies!!

    We love shabu-shabu so we always try other restaurants to experience which one is the best or better. I expected the Momo Paradise to be large just like any other shabu-shabu buffet we’ve been to but this place is tight and compact, hard to go around with the condiments and market to get into with other people. We also didn’t enjoy the soup (Tonkotsu & Shabu-Shabu), it was so bland and no taste at all, it’s really for just boiling the meats and veggies. Haidilao and Ten Shabu are more tasty and enjoyable. But Momo have this curry and it made our first experience at this place great because we love Japanese Curry, so we still give this place a 4-stars overall. We’ll come back here again because of the curry and the unlimited meats, we just hope their soup will be reinvented to be tasteful, we don’t just like to eat the meat we’d like to slurp the soup too that’s why we went for a shabu-shabu.

    Waiter kept rushing us because our 90 mins was up, but he failed to remember that he sat us down 30 minutes AFTER our reservation time and took their time bringing us our ice cream toward the end of the our meal. My husband had to take his ice cream to go- bowl, spoon and all! Tonkotsu soup was so BLAND too.

    It was a birthday celebration and we have 2 toddlers. They accommodated our 2 toddlers very well and allowed them to be safely seated away from the cooking table. Meat fresh and good. Choices of vegetable fresh. Servers provided prompt service when we need more meat and more broth.

    They brought back the glass noodles! My friend and I have been going here for 4 years and during the pandemic they removed some items from the buffet area. I'm happy to report that they've brought those items back and even added a few more items. Yesterday was our favorite time that we've gone. We love MoMo
