It's been the go-to place for our family dinner for quite a while. My family has been to hundreds of hot pot restaurants, and this one is the one that we would recommend to our friends. If you're around XinYi Dist, definitely give it a try!

I made a reservation based in great reviews on food, service and atmosphere. Though there aas a cockroach stepping across our table and my mom had to catch it. It was unexpectedly so unpleasant to eat anything here, especially for the case I invited my parents for a supposedly-very-nice meal. Only because we had no other place to go nearby at that time, we moved to other table and had lunch. Bright side- food was good and the manager made a seious apology and fave us 10% discount for the incident. Despite the surprise, I appreciated how the manager reacted to it.

I went to Host Shabu after shopping at Bellavita (I bought some great glasses at JEpoque store)...

The Shabu Shabu restaurant has very good food...I'm no expert on Shabu Shabu but I thought the food quality was very good. If you are used to shabu shabu in Taipei, then you might think this restaurant is a bit expensive...but it is in Bellavita shopping center (probably the most expensive shopping mall in Taipei).

I think over-all, I was very happy eating at this restaurant (the atmosphere was really nice) I would definitely go back again.

For 4 people, it was about 8,500 NTD (which is really a lot of Shabu Shabu in Taiwan)

This restaurant is such a disappointment:
- Our party of 5 adults and 2 babies arrived the restaurant at 8pm and apparently there were no more seafood a la carte left available for ordering! (Not even one item!)
- The guy server then robotically suggested the lobster seafood set, and said that for us to meet the minimum spend, we can order two seafood sets (each costed NT5000ish).
- One server said they were under-staff that Friday night. From what I can see, that resulted in server A dropping our vegetables into the pot, and server B came in to take them out the next minute. When we told server B the vegetables were literally just put in, she giggled and said, "oops, sorry." (Seriously? Shouldn't they be trained to tell whether the food look cooked before serving them?)
- They were in such a hurry to close at 10. They told us at least 8 times between 9 to 9:45pm that they would be closing at 10pm. And at 9:50pm, they actually turned off the light. (If this was a hole in the wall family business, I would understand. But our dinner costed NT15000 and this was how they treated their guests?)
- Because they were in a hurry, by 9pm, they just shoved the entire plate of lamb into the pot. They didn't care we wouldn't swallow fast enough and that the lamb would turn cold and hard. They just wanted to get off work.
- Once the lamb was done cooking, they just dumped them on a plate (See pic). Thanks, that was really well done and you made the food look so appetizing....
- The grossest was when they made congee in the really dirty and foamy broth. (See pic) At other Shabu Shabu in TW, you will have a designated server and the server will keep taking the foam out as the meal progresses. By the time congee is being cooked at the end, the pot still looks clean and the broth is clear. At this restaurant however, they didn't do that and they simply dumped the rice into the dirty broth. And since they were in a hurry, the rice was not cooked enough and was still hard when served.

Compare to other upscale Shabu places I tried (橘色 and 但馬家), this one charged the most but the quality of food as well as the service were substantially subpar. I would recommend either of the above two Shabu places if you want an enjoyable Shabu meal.
