We go to Boiling Hot Pot atleast 1x/month. It鈥檚 our go to spot for almost every occasion whether happy or sad. 馃槀 We went here for my wife鈥檚 graduation and for when I had a bad day and needed a venting session.

We almost always get mango soju. My mother-in-law and I always drink unfiltered Sake when we all got together. It鈥檚 like a family tradition now.

We usually pick out 4 favorite soup bases (Tom Yum, Red Pepper, Green Pepper, and Tomato). We LOVE their sauce station! It鈥檚 so customizable but my favorite is their first recommendation. My wife loves their green sauce and their mushroom sauce with spicy chili garlic.

We always order a bunch of vegetables and wagyu beef. We always leave super stuffed and so satisfied. Unfortunately the only downside is the time limit of 90 mins which leaves you feeling rushed. I will say that the restaurant really only enforces the time limit when there is a large wait. Otherwise they are very nice and flexible.

Would definitely recommend for any occasion. We鈥檙e probably going to go back soon.

Boiling Hot Pot is the BEST in San Francisco, hands down! Our friends introduced it to us and we have loved going there ever since. The variety of broth flavors, and then the huge assortment of meats, tofu, veggies, etc they have is awesome! Also, they have all you can drink draft beer + sake!! It's a fun atmosphere, the restaurant + bathrooms are clean, the staff are very friendly and service is unspeakably quick. It's literally the best - such a fun night out to share with your friends and if you have any guests in town, take them there. It does not disappoint!

Happy 4th of July.
Normally we don't eat AYCEhotpot in SF (mostly because the price). But it was holiday so why not. Many other hotpots in town were closed so we'd like to try this.
It was around noon, we didn't have to wait and were seated immediatly. The servers were very nice and fast. We could chose up to 4 soups. You can order as many as you can (as long as you can finish them), no limit to 5 dishes per 10 mins or 1 call. There is a small sauce bar with some nice recipes there. Food is quite nice, and I really like the beer beef. Some dishes that I really like in other places aren't here, but they have enough good food for you to try.
The only thing that make me confused was when we sat down, the server said $28.99 for AYCE. Later she told other customers $35.99. In the end we were charged 35.99 each too. I guess that was holiday's price but she should have told us from the beginning.

Overall, I like the idea of 4 soup bases. You don't have ro refill broth so the flavor stays the same. Service is fast, environment is fresh and friendly. The price is just similar to others in SF. I Might come back but if I have a chance I either would try other new AYCE in the city or just go to other cities in The Bay Area for much more value.

I went to boiling hotpot for the first time after the pandemic. They are definitely less busy than before the pandemic. Food is still very good. Love the wagyu beef and the 4 pots options.
