I've been trying to get a group together to do this restaurant at 6th and Washington - as I heard the more the better - but no responses so tonight 3 of us went and it was FANTASTIC! Not busy - quiet for conversation and we were only non-orientials in the place. A few nice families with well behaved kids. It works best with 3 -6 people. The menu is huge and offers lots of Vietnames and Japanese dishes but the reason you go is for the Hot pot and the Smokeless BBQ. Each is $13.95. And you will get more food to cook than you can eat. (well more than MOST people can eat.). There is a minimum of $10.00 per person so we ordered 1 hotpot, one bbq, and a wonderful deluxe pan fried noodles full of shrip, pork, scallops etv ($$7.50!). The bill with a reasonable tip was $15.00 per person! And we took leftovers home!
They do have a liquor and beer licence. We didn't drink tonight. At lunch (Mon-Fri) the Hot Pot and BBQ are $7.95. The staff was incredibly nice.
This is a find. Next month I'm going back and I'll post a note in case others want to join. You have to work at your dinner (it comes raw and you cook it - seafood, taro, pork, chicken beef and bacon) but that's the fun.
There was no one smoking but I don't know if it's a no smking restaurant. Parking no problem. HUGE parking lot.
Glad I finally got there.
