  • I would not come back to this horrid and disgusting place of a restaurant. The food was mediocre, with a limited selection of sauces as well. The washroom was truly disgusting!! I could not go in there and use it as the base of the toilet was all black.
    The exterior of the restaurant signals people to "stay far away" and I should've done the same.

  • By the look on the outside of the retuarants you wouldn't hardly noticed the great flavours of China.. inside of this little gem. The decor could needed a better touch, having said that the flavours and fragrant of spices from northern China filled the room right away when you enter inside. A must experince at least once in your life time. The key is knowing what you want or you may not have any idea, the wait staff was very helpful..there are one set price fifthteen dollars all you can eat soft-drinks are free refills. We are talking about a family and friends involment meal! the menu hold at least 40 different items that can be cooked in a mild, medium, or spicy broth which situated at your table (btw you can order spit HotPot half spicy half mild),
    Items like galong(chinese greens)bean sprouts, tofu, potato, too are ever so thinly sliced beef,lamb, also there are all kinds of veggies noodles sea food items. which by the way you pick out of the menu and be brought to your table to be cooked. and you can switched up anytime you want. We had our 13yrs old with us and I have to say it is a very educational experince for her as well. Along with the HotPot also there are items that you can order, such as DimSum. Warm friendly place we will return again. Oh one set back the bathroom is unisex just one bathroom, if you don't mind it's clean, a modern take for us the Chinese have been doing for years.

  • Having experienced what it's like to have authentic Hot Pot Cuisine in China when we lived there in the year 2005, The Hot Pot House has provided us this amazing experience at home right here in Hamilton. There's a wide range of items to choose from and paying $10 per person for all you can eat is the way to go! Very enjoyable experience, tasty food, friendly service and a great place to go with groups as it is a very sociable experience. Can't wait to go back!
