Chinese Hot Pot Restaurants: How do they work? Tips and Advice?

Hi All,

I am an adventurous eater, but to date have never had a chinese hot pot meal. I am assuming it's vaguely related to fondue in that you sort of pick and plunk yourself into a broth?

Unfortunately, no one I know has any experience either, and while there are a couple of places nearby (including one that looks like a drunks dream: all you can eat and open late), I would love some advice on how these places work, any tips/ettiquette I should be aware of, and what you might suggest for an adventurous first timer.

Thanks Eaters!
