This popular steamboat chain from China has opened its first overseas outlet in Singapore. Food served is the typical Sichuan style hot pot with a selection of meats, vegetables and sauces. While waiting for a table, customers will be treated to complimentary drinks, snacks and even a manicure.
A friend introduced this place firstly because of the awesome services they provide, secondly their steamboat was good! Went there twice so far on a weekday, always full. Better to book early or walk in before 630pm. Great Service I've seen the service staff carry bags for ladies while walking them to the table. When seated, they'd provide you aprons so you won't dirty your clothes, rubberband for ladies to tie their hair so your hair won't get into the food, spectacle cloth in case your spectacles gets dirty, sealable plastic protector so you could keep your phones in it to prevent it from getting dirty/wet. What's most interesting is that they provide manicure for ladies, either while waiting or after eating. But remember to put in your names early as the wait for the manicure session might take sometime. Food Chicken broth and Mala are the best!
Steamboat is not just about cooking fresh ingredients and getting to eat them piping hot with savoury broths; it's the fun and interaction with loved ones cooking and chatting and crowding around that pot that makes steamboat so enjoyable. If you are craving for steamboat in the middle of the night especially when it rains - fret not, as Hai Di Lao is opened till 6am at both Clarke Quay and 313 Somerset branches (And till 4am for the IMM outlet).

Been there umpteen times and I really adore their Ma La and Tomato soup hotpots!! That's the best combination of hotpots ever - Tomato base as soup, Ma La base as shabu shabu for beef to get into the clouds. =D
