family hot pot outing! Mar 25, 2011
Came here on a Saturday and had to wait a little while. Mou Mou Club differs from other hot pot venues in that it's cleaner and has fewer options on the menu. The buffet section had a decent selection of fish balls, veggies, tofu, sausages, tomatoes, noodles, corn, mushrooms, etc. but limited sauces. No sha cha or peanut sauce *sigh* But if memory serves me correctly, adding $20 gets you unlimited Asahi, score!!
The waiters here are friendly but can be kinda slow (not sure if this is some sort of tactic to give us less meat as the eating session is timed).
We had a pot with two different soup bases ~ both sides ended up overflowing and thus the flavors were all mixed anyway -_-" The flavors of the soup bases don't really stand out, especially after mixing the cooked foods with soy sauce. Did anything really stand out here though? Not really, it's just your average hot pot. We found it strange that the meat looked different every time the waiter brought us more O_O But it was okay. The dessert at the end was also just your average supermarket ice cream. Not bad, but nothing really wowed me here.
It's not expensive for all-you-can-eat, but the selection is meager compared to the average Chinese restaurants serving hot pot. I don't really see how it's Japanese style though besides the fact that there's udon... which is quite often used in Chinese hot pots. Regardless, I don't mind coming back to this place, though it wouldn't be at the top of my choices.

Delicious Hot Pot Dinner Feb 26, 2011
There is not much to add. We showed up without reservation and got a table for four straight away. We got a chance to sit and look at the menu before our order was taken and our start time marked. The second time we went we waited 10 minutes longer than the estimated 20 minutes and had to order before we were shown to the table.
The self-serve area has various vegetables, mushrooms, tofu, processed meat and fish, as well as ice cream for dessert.
The first time we picked the Japanese Wagyu beef, which was amazing, with sukiyaki hot pot, which was too sweet for my taste. The second time we had half sukiyaki and half plain, which we had to have with standard beef and pork. For the second and third order they were happy to give us just beef though. The beef did not taste as good as the japanese wagyu, but was ok once cooked thoroughly.
In any case, we will definitely be coming back here. 90 minutes is more than enough to stuff yourself!

Felicious Wagyu beef hotpot dinner Jul 21, 2010
Actually book 牛陣 (iSqaure) for dinner, I've given that up eventually after reading comments from Openrice.
Tried my luck in calling this restaurant at 5-ish to book a table for 2, which didn't work so I decided to go early, arriving at it door at 7:15pm. (The one who picked my call was a gentleman with good manner which gave me confidence in this restaurant.)
The time limit is 90mins, you will be given your receipt with what kind of meal you've ordered, time when you are seated, and time which you have to leave. It's very good of them to mark your order before bringing you to your seat, fair enough when there's a time limit.
For shabushabu, there are 4 options ranging from 100 sth to 300 sth, we had third one which cost ~250 per head.
As titled, the beef was felicious with good marbelling, they're soft and tender. What's more, the quality was consistent through out all 3 portions we had. (Grateful that i've given up 牛陣) The first plate actually came with some pork slices as well, which tasted good. However, we are beef lovers, we gave all our quota to beef.
The self-help counter may dissappoint you if you're looking for a normal hot pot dinner, as they only serve a few kinds of veggies, bean curd. Yet, it was good enough for us and those beef lovers. There're some goodies there at the self-help counter actually, they serve 2 kinds of udon, the ordinary one as well as Inniwa Udon (though it could not have been those high grade one, they are pretty good.) 油豆腐 was another surprise.
We had 鴛鴦pot with soy bean milk and korean kimchi. Both were not very impressive but alright... The kimchi one is not chilli at all. Not much taste of bean from the milk pot neither. Since the beef itself was great, let's say, the pot is acceptable... just don't expect great, tasty pot base as those served in 寧記
Ice cream of 4 flavours were available （sesame, tofu, vanilla and matcha), since i'm a sesame ice cream geek and my friend a matcha one, we were absolutely happy with the unlimited indulgence.
When time was nearly up a waiter came over with the bill (you don't have to ask for your bill unless you finish early, someone will come over), when he returned with my change, he switched off the induction cooker. Little bit akward... but we were not asked to leave, and were able to sit for another ~15 mins to finish our ice cream. (Perhaps, there were nobody waiting outside/their time for last order had past already, there're no point forcing us to leave, Lucky~~)
So, if you have a clear mission (eating a lot of wagyu beef, just like us), give this place a chance, can't let you down.
Recommended Dish(es): Wagyu Beef, Inniwa Udon, 油豆腐

Went here for dinner last week with friend, ordered the $100 something all you can eat beef set... food quality is not that good... while service is ok, it took 20 minutes for the beef to arrive... and all beef was slice very thin and does not have any flavors.. can tell the beef is not fresh... dessert is ok bor, all you can eat ice cream, quality quite ok. wanted to try the hainan siu yeh restaurant next door, people say it is very good but too many people. this place is still new so i think can improve.
