Winters and Hotpot are like peanut butter and chocolate for me. Well, I correct myself nothing is as good as peanut butter and chocolate but steaming spicy hotpot on a cold winter night comes pretty darn close, if you ask me. And these people know their spicy, if they are calling it normal spicy, be prepared for some lip burning , chillie floating spicy. I did'nt even dare to try the very spicy! So the idea is simple, you go in, order your hotpot, which is either half broth and half soup or all broth. I always opt for the half n half options as it gives the mild but delicious chicken soup with bean sprouts and mushrooms on the side. The menu is on ipads which is very convenient as you can see the accompanying picture to make sure you know what you are ordering. Its a fun dining experience as you drop in slices of lamb, tofu, fish balls, vegetables etc. in the bubbling broth and wait for it to cook before you can bite into it. I always put everything in the chillie broth as I am a chillie junkie. And then soothe my burning mouth with some ice cold Tsing Tao beer. Also, in between take sips of the chicken broth to make peace with war that the chillies have waged on in your stomach. Its like a game that keeps going on until you can't eat no more. Whats even better about it is the fact that all of this does not come with a hefty price tag, it is a really affordable place and provides truly chicken soup for the soul.

Went here on a busy Saturday night and saw a lot of people waiting, tried looking for other places to eat but finally decided to come back to wait. Surprisingly it was a short wait or maybe we were just lucky. We took our time to order and the staff were on hand to help and we finally settled on the half spicy/chicken pot and ordered some beef, fish fillets, fish balls, tofu, quail eggs and a few other things. After putting the ingredients in the pot and finally trying the food, it was so good and tasty. We chose the most mild spicy soup base but it was still spicy but it was good. Good thing it was a cold night. I ate a lot because the food was good and I felt like I couldn't stop. I found the quality of the ingredients and service quite good and think people should go try Chinese hotpot here, I wouldn't compare it to Korean hotpot or Japanese hotpot but this place would be the best for this type of Chinese hotpot in Sydney.

So after hearing a lot of good things about this hotpot, we decided to give it a try, the specially made sauce is okay and quite tasty, but everything else does not stand out from other hot pot places. I tried their home made meat slices and found it way too much marinated in bi-carb soda. The soup base was average and was not the best I have tasted. Probably wont' go back again.

Top notch hotpot restaurant. Always get the split broth. Always tastes the same. Highly recommended for a big or small group. Perfect for cold Sydney weather.

Excellent for cold rainy weather. The service is quick. The only problem is the wait. Been to this place several times and had to wait at least 15 minutes before seating. But definitely worth the wait! Can never go wrong with hotpot.
