At Big Splash, East Coast Park, #01-05, King Pot is a whole different ball game from the run of the mill hot pot stalls.. It's almost fine dining. The decor of the place is tastefully done and waiters serve you with a smile the moment you walk in. The manager (or the person I assume to be the manager) was very friendly and patiently recommended drinks for us.
When it comes to cheese fondue, images of warm, gooey, viscous and decadent melted cheese accompanied by food that is meant to be dipped into the mixture flashes across my mind.
Initially, the bf and I happily waited for the cheese fondue but we were really shocked when the 2 pots of cheese finally arrived - it was cheese soup, not the gooey melted cheese that was expected when I bought the "Fresh Lobster Cheese Fondue at King Pot" off Deal.com, but thin, watery cheese flavored soup!
Fondue issue aside, I would say that the food at King Pot is rather good. All the ingredients in the Lobster set were fresh. The lobster was succulent and tasted of the sea; the dory fish was sweet and the bread was crusty and absorbed the soup well. Though the portions look small at first glance, I was full after the meal, probably because the meal is heavy on the carbs with the fettuccine and the bread.

Dear The Bunny,
Thanks so much for your valuable feedback. Our whole idea was to enjoy cheese fondue as a steamboat itself, the texture was specially created to work within the mechanics of steamboat; to cook and enjoy the food and fondue.
We glad you enjoyed the overall experience. We look forward to seeing you again! :)
