They need tables. It’s a good place for 2 people to enjoy hot pots. I would never go with a group. Service was slow and unorganized. Staff was nice and food was good.

I love coming here. I stopped in yesterday but they had no teryaki sauce and that is my absolute favorite. I drove 30 min to get here and it was almost the reason why i left. But regardless my boyfriend and i were hungry so we stayed and enjoyed our usual date dinner and loved it.

Thanks for being so great.

I love coming here every time I come here I get the same thing. This time I ordered a smoothie too. It was delicious it wasn’t too sweet and it didn’t taste too healthy it was perfect to have on a hot day driving home. I appreciate that I asked them for specific things and they were able to accommodate to me. I love coming here. Keep up the great work.

Diego was charming and attentive and runs this small restaurant with pride and professionalism. His personal touch makes you feel like you are important and welcome at his table. I love the quaint feel of this place with the eclectic music that gives this unique vibe to complement the great organic and healthy food.
A true gem and one of my favorite places to dine.

And, dont forget dessert as the banana coconut organic gelato is amazing and I understand that is made with great care byn Yesenia who is also so sweet and easily shares her kindness and superb service.

I’ve been coming here the past couple of month and I really enjoy the food here.
We get the vegan hotspot and we add a bowl of rice and my boyfriend and I share it. It’s super filling and we both leave with our stomachs full.

I am incredibly happy with the service I have gotten here, I had a little trouble the second time I came but the third time she made it up to us and we felt a lot better about going back to our favorite spot. We never eat out because we can never find an all organic restaurant and now that we have this is our go to every time.

Thanks for everything that you’ve done! Five stars.

Very interesting place. I was expecting a restaurant and it was more like a bar, but with food instead of alcohol. It was different but good and we will go back.
The workers were very friendly and helpful in trying to teach us how it all works!
Everything is fresh and healthy. The pop cycles are great and made fresh daily.

I ordered organic chicken for my mushroom broth shabu/hotpot. It was delicious! The chicken and broth were so flavorful. I also appreciate that I can customize so I can eat lower sodium and low spice. My taste buds and tummy were so happy after I enjoyed my delicious meal. I also ate the organic green tea ice cream and enjoyed it as well. Looking forward to returning. I think I'll try to the cookie ice cream:-D

I was disappointed with dishonesty because my dish is certainly not wild caught salmon. The color of wild salmon I received at restaurant is this pale pink, not the darker orange color that I usually purchase at the market.

So if you are expecting traditional shabu you will be disappointed. I know that we love shabu for the sauces and while I get that this place is trying to be healthy and organic and create healing foods it lacks in flavor for sure. Additionally the vegetables are all green leaf and while I love kale and cabbage it was not adequate for the rest of my family. I don’t think we will be back here as when we go for shabu we are looking for the more traditionally style. I will say that the Thai lemon grass broth was the bomb and saved the meal!

This restaurant was okay. It worked out great in that a few people in our group have really strict dietary requirements and they found items that they could order off of the menu (which never happens). The ingredients were also really fresh. As for it being Shabu Shabu, it was pretty flavorless. The broths were watery and the sauces were a bit strange. Also, the service was so slow! I think it was a combo of being understaffed, and the workers seeming more interested in talking to each other than tending to the patrons. Overall, I would only come back if I were looking for a place to accommodate a fat-free vegan, or for another scoop of their coconut ice cream!

Couldn't love this place more.

For those looking for high quality food, or true gluten free options, this is worth the drive.

Not only is the food 100% toxin free, it is 100% delicious.

Just tried the boba smoothies - had no idea organic strawberries and coconut milk could taste so divine.

Kind of an unusual place. Combination of bowls and shabu shabu cook your own. Since I cook everyday, I opted for a bowl of salad and salmon , no rice. Somehow noodles appeared in the dish, but I just put them aside. Both the salmon and salad were very good. The salmon was a good portion. A man across from us was cooking his own and it looked great with a lot of things to add to his pot. Will have to try this next time.

Met a family member who was in town for only a few hours for a healthy and unique dining experience and that is exactly what we got. Enjoyed the leisure while preparing our hot pot meals. We both selected salmon as the protein. I don’t order salmon unless is is wild and finally, a restaurant that serves wild fish instead of farmed. 😄Went with the medium spiced broth but would go higher next time. For both of us the broth we chose needed more zip. We were able to get that zip by adding some of spicy oil condiment. I will go back for sure.

The staff were attentive and cared about our first-time experience. It was a busy night, yet they answered all of our questions in how to prepare the meal. We enjoyed the experience and the quality of food, but the $ was a little high for the amount of prep when you're not sure what you're doing with adding spices and other things to suit taste in a "hot pot". Enjoyed the experience most likely as a one time event.

This was my fourth visit and the most disappointing. Despite having reservations and several open seats at the bar, we were seated right by the kitchen. The noise from silverware being tossed into the bin, as well as kitchen noise was really distracting and unpleasant. When taking our drink order, the server walked away from us before my husband had a chance to order his drink (!). She never checked on us to make sure our food was okay or ask if we needed another drink . Everyone else that helped us was very friendly, so I think it is a problem with just the server. At least the food was delicious!
