Value-for-money late night steamboat buffet

This no-frills establishment's mainstay is Szechuan cuisine but it is especially known for its value-for-money steamboat buffets. For night owls in the Zouk vicinity, it’s a godsend as the brightly-lit restaurant stays open till 3am. Tuck into a range of standard steamboat items such as thinly sliced meat, prawns and vegetables, alongside premium offerings like pork belly and quail eggs. There are five choices when it comes to the soup base: pork bone, mushroom, tomato, tom yam and spicy Szechuan mala. Note that drinks and dessert are charged additionally, and do try their solitary dessert option - the sweet potato caramel ($9.90).

Ceased operation

I received a reply from groupon that the restaurant has ceased operation. Do get a refund from groupon by emailing to them if you have bought groupon vouchers for this restaurant.

Late Night Buffet

Relative newcomer Pin Wei Xuan offers cooked Szechuan cuisine but is especially known for its value-for-money steamboat buffets. For night owls in the Zouk vicinity, it’s a godsend as the brightly-lit restaurant stays open till 3am. Tuck into a range of standard steamboat items such as thinly sliced meat, prawns and vegetables, alongside a choice of soup: pork bone, mushroom, tomato and spicy Szechuan mala. Hungry gourmands have the option to upgrade to higher end meats such as the US beef – just make sure someone is able to speak Mandarin to the staff.

casual hot pot

Located at the Outram area, Pin Wei Xuan offers a variety from an economical buffet of $24.90+ consisting of seafood, meats and vegetables all the way to high end wagyu meat options for those with a finer palette. A simple no frills dining environment, expect good service and fresh produce with a staple of soups to pick from. Those looking for something traditional would do well with the "ma-la" soup base whilst those who fear spiciness would do well with the chicken or mushroom based stock.

Barely make it

We came here on a groupon which we paid $12.50/pax for the steamboat buffet which only came with the basic. We needed to add on $9/pax if we wanted flower crab and prawns etc.. which we did. We did not mind paying the extra just to get a taste of what the full menu will be. For starters it normally cost $24.9++/pax for the steamboat buffet.

The owner and chefs are chinese and introduce a few cold dishes from their hometown in the menu. It is located along the busy Outram Rd along the stretch of Tiong Bahru pau. I had my expectations sky high upon reading the reviews earlier but i was dissapointed. The ambience was casual and family kind. They had a variety of sliced pork, beef, yong tau foo stuff, veg and 4 kinds of soup namely pork bone, ma la, tomato, mushroom. 

Steamboat is so easy to do at home so for a restaurant like this to differentiate themselves they need to have gd ambience, good soup base,variety, fresh and good quality food which PWX was desperately lacking. Checked with the staff if the pork and lobster balls were frozen, did not even bother ordering when they said yes. Seriously guys, u have 3 "chefs" in the kitchen only to cut veg, unwrap frozen food, slice pork using machine and prepare cold dishes? Thats insult to the profession. The fish used was sutchi fish fillet...my goodness thats so cheap i see that all the time in Yes supermarket!! Prawns were frozen, totally lack freshness. Some of the lotus root and veg looked spoiled to me. The sauces were mediocre.. satay sauce don't taste like satay sauce.. seafood sauce wasn't good either. Plain water was charged at $0.40.. again that's so sly of f&b outlets to charge for tap water.

In total we paid about $22/pax for this meal, which was overpriced. I tried King Pot at ECP which serves excellent quality food, service and ambience but the price can be easily doubled. Personally i would splurge on quality than to waste calories on ready-made food from the supermarket. The only reason why i even bother to write the review is because of the warm service i felt from the staff, the auntie like my mother like that.. asking me this enough or not..that one enough or not.. really nice of her.
