Let me first say this was very new for me as I only had even hear about this type of cuisine a week prior to visiting the restaurant. A group of co-workers and I went out for dinner after work on Friday night. Only one of us had actually been here before. It's really different from anything I've ever had... More

First and foremost, this was a new experience for myself. I've never tried this type of cusines before. So I'll Base my review on three things. (1) Service: the staff seemed well organised. They weren't either rude nor very friendly. They were neither fast or slow when serving or when cleaning away. (Average) (2) Food: everything was very fresh and... More

This is the Taiwanese style hot pot. You have your own pot to cook your own food. Before all the Mongolian hotpot places started to pop up, I used to come here a lot. But the quality of the food, especially the meat, just can't compare with all the new places. Sure, it might seem cheaper, because each pot starts... More

If you like Chinese hot pot and don't want to share whatever everyone else is throwing in the pot, Minni's is the place to go. I am a "fair-weather" vegetarian, so I cannot share the big pot with everyone else throwing all sorts of meat in. That's why I like Minni's. It's pretty real Chinese style. As much as this... More

Came here with a group of friends after a long day of hiking. The weather was warm but it didn't matter. Hot pot was a great idea. I like how each person has their own individualized hot pot. The water comes to boil very quickly via induction heating. Once you order, they quickly fill your pot with their broth and... More

There was a good selection of choices for combinations (seafood and lamb, pork and beef etc) the servers were attentive coming round with more water for the broth. The juices are very nice (i'm pregnant and they were really refreshing and didn't taste artificial). My... More

It's fun to cook your own food but they don't give as much food
