    Love this place! The hot pots are so good. They have a huge menu! I can get a hot pot while my husband gets the pad Thai & we can both get a couple sushi rolls to go with. Everything is fresh & yummy!

    Surf and turf is an awesome selection with the mushroom base soup! Not only does that base provide great taste but the surf and turff provides both meats and seafood! Great place and environment!

    Delicious!!! We have gone here a few time and love it. The food is delicious and filling. The waiters are friendly and helpful in ordering. Just make sure to call ahead, there is always a wait.

    This place is AMAZING for the price. You can get two entrees for under $25 and hot pot for two under $20. It's all the greatness of Chinatown in a classy setting with a GREAT playlist.

    Hands down best hot pot. I live in San Francisco (with some of the BEST Asian food in the US) and nowhere here rivals Q for hotpot.

    For hot pot: our critic recommends the black-bone chicken broth, broccoli, udon noodles and mushrooms or green-tea shrimp, chili beef stew...or even just sautéed shiitake mushrooms and greens

    Lots of hot pot options for vegans and vegetarians too!! Most of the broths can be made vegetarian and they have a ton of veggie a la carte additions!

    Their shrimp and chicken house fried rice is decent. Note to self: To order the Mongolian hotpot, which seems to be the popular item, from looking at other tables next to me.

    The Mongolian hot pot is a must! If you like a little bit of spice, definitely try the tomyum with the basic broth.

    Great hot pot date night spot. If you're not caught up on the decor, shabu zen down the street is a couple points better imo.

    Really good, there is so much food! Try the beef hot pot, the broth is bland at first but an amazing soup by the end

    Less adventurous than most China town spots, decent mix of Chinese, hot pot, and sushi - try the Mai Tai

    Fried ice cream is the way to go. The breading tastes like a Chinese donut. AND THEY HAVE AZUKI ICE CREAM

    Hot pot's fun to order. Mali broth was too spicy for me, but Tom yum broth with beef, lamb, baby book choy, and fried tofu skin was good.

    They were playing a great selection of club and house tracks the night I was there. Not too loud for conversation though.

    The Tom Yum broth is great, the Black Bone Chicken was ok. Our table was split on which broth was best.

    Get a side order of Dan Dan noodles! Surprisingly light, the broth alone is good enough to drink. Eat!

    Great food, but service is severely lacking in attentiveness and friendliness. The veggie baskets are quite unhygienic, too (the holes allow fingers and hair to touch the food). Won't come back.

    They serve better quality meat here than in Shabu Zen, but I like Shabu’s broth better.

    This new Mongolian Hotpot and Sushi Lounge just opened today. It's the reincarnation of the old 'Little Q' in Quincy.
