They don't take reservations, but you can call 30 minutes prior to arriving and put your name on the list. Busy place and still a long wait, but the food was well-worth it. Hostess friendly and helpful, let us place out order before we were seated so it was ready when we sat. Wait staff was not attentive (we had... More

Wish I was with someone who knew how to better order. The hot pots at the tables with the cook your own food looked fantastic. No reservations and took cramped bar seats over a 45 minute wait. Would plan ahea and rummage the menu better next time.

A little different idea to enjoy Chinese food. You seat on a table where there is a hot plate in the middle. You chose a pot from a menu & the ingredients of your choice from another menu. You are then select some of the ingredience and you deep them in the pot which boils slowly. The food you have... More

Went for an early dinner we had some drinks and food. Husband is allergic to seafood and they where very accommodating and we had no issues. Definitely want to come back to try the hot pot that looked cool but we didn't want to wait and eat at the bar.

They offer a wide variety of Asian foods. The Korean seems to be the most popular, but I didn't go that way. I can say that the sushi is high quality, and the scallions pancakes were tasty and filling. Mediocre wines

I loved this restaurant and dinning experience. I went to Beijing and ate at a hotpot. This one beat it by far!!! I can't wait to have one open in my state. Service was great, food was great, cocktails were great. My only con was how close you were to other tables. I like a little more space. I would... More

After reading rave reviews, my expectations were very high, but this place exceeded them. Had to wait for a table, but it was more than worth it. Tuna Tataki and Sesame Chicken were both wonderful, but everything that came out of the kitchen looked equally so!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences, visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler, and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide range of Asian food available, within easy access of South Station. At night, Chinatown becomes a late night food destination after the bars close.
