3. Food always came on time and was fresh. Quality cannot be complained about.
4. Price was decent
5. Everybody at our table had more than enough to eat and were satisfied
6. Overall, a lot better than we had expected.
7. Would go back since there's nothing else in the area (other than Richmond.)

Pretty much lol hard to complain so far.

Honestly, all 8 of us at the table were expecting A LOT worse. With our experience for hot pot in the GVRD, typically, it's either terrible service (80% of the time) and/or terrible food. This establishment far exceeded our expectations but considering it is a little smaller, we were pretty happy.

^ Beat you to it sucker

Give it a 8.5/10
- It was clean
- Pretty good deco/plates
- Good service (they had so many waiters/waitresses)
- I would give it more but they ran out of freaking fish skin!
- Overall food was pretty good

Will be back for sure, its like a 5minute drive from my house.. scooore!

Yeah, it was pretty good.

Had to wait a little bit after our resos (like 10mins) and then got seated. Pretty much what MelonBoy said and at the end they charged us for 6 people instead of 5 but that could be because a friend pulled a no show.

They can't seem to figure out how we ordered. It was actually pretty funny since they left out some food but then randomly gave us others.

Either way, it is the best thing in the area and now, I, no longer need to drive to Richmond to get my fix.

I give it a 7/10
-quality of food better than expected
-service was bad (they left out our second order for half an hour and told us the 2 hour limit was up half an hour before our reservation time and actually handed us the bill)
-decor was quiet nice
-very clean, but that's probably because it is new.
-no fried fish skin

Note that sauces will be charged extra from $0.50 - $1.00
-eggs are $1, quiet a rip.

Is the soup base as shitty as Posh?

Cause everytime I go to Posh, it's fucking soysauce and water. That is NOT HotPot.

"Everytime you go" ?!? ... LOL I've only been there once years ago and I would NEVER step foot in there again. Such a rip off for soy sauce + hot water for $14.

You can pay $5 more for unlimited seafood and a GOOD soup base anywhere else!

Just had dinner there with the wife.
Servings were very big. Some of the stuff was pretty fresh and some of it was frozen. Oysters were big and quite sandy.

They had 3 waitresses and the manager in such a small establishment, so service was pretty quick.

I did like the sweet peanut sauce they had.

But I prefer going to Top Gun HP over this place.
