King Pot aims to bring forth a new steamboat dining experience with only the best and freshest ingredients! Apart from using our patented heating stove, King Pot's blend of western favorites soup bases with local soup bases are always available.
A very different dining concept in a very grand and comfortable setting.
Spent about $60 per person and both of us enjoyed a prolonged dinner session with a bit from everything. I think place is ideal for large gatherings and celebrations.
HIghly recommended on their lobster bisque, the spicy one is much more enjoyable.
Food was decent and service crew was above par but what really cheezed me off was the attitude of the GM, Derek Tan when I asked to take away the extra left overs. I was only informed of their so-called no food take away policy AFTER the food was taken away from my table. Had they told us of the policy BEFORE clearing the food, we could have tried to finish the food. When asked why the no take away policy is not made known to the customer from the begining, he said it's because I did not ask!
I'm definitely NOT going back to this restaurant or any of its subsidiaries for such extremely poor service.
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.
