Fu(n)sion Steamboat

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.

Terrible service at the end of a meal

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.

Dear Benny,

Thanks for the feedback. We do not say no to taking away food but we strictly do not provide the equipments, containers or services to provide for takeaways of leftovers. This is to dis-encourage takeaways as our items are raw and we'll rather get a bad review if we can are able to take all measure to reduce food-poisoning.

Fine dining hot pot

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! :)

Simply disappointment.. Meat not fresh and ex for the quality

Ordered Ala Carte for two, 1 for Vege Mushroom soup and the chicken herbal soup. The soup is okay, the pork collar thin slices are ultimate disappointment. There's a weird aftertaste, feel like the meat been frozen for more than a few days. 7 x uncooked fishball for $6. that's ridiculous.Definitely not recommended for hotpot, worst experience.

Dear Wilson,

Thanks for your kind feedback. Do note that your concerns are valuable and we have also actually revamped our menu and food portioning. On 12 Nov 2012, incorporating a new kitchen team and whole new menu, all quantities are clearly indicated with no surprise bill at the end of dinner. Do drop me an email or Facebook message: King Pot to allow us to have a chance to make up for the upset in your previous dining experience.

Thanks,
Derek
