Mini Steamboat Delight has relocated to a new address:
Gourmet Paradise Restaurant 3, Blk 480, Lorong 6 Toa Payoh, #B1-01, HDB Hub, Singapore 310480
If you ask me how I should describe my experience, I say "It's PERFECT!!!".
Previously located at Parkway Parade basement food court, the steamboat restaurant had relocated twice. Firstly, the restaurant moved to the 4th floor at Banquet Food Court, Parkway Parade. Recently, they moved to Gourmet Paradise Restaurant at HDB Hub.
Most of the time, we ordered meats, bean curd rolls, fish dumplings, fish maw, fortune fish balls, fish glue, fragrant rice (aka chicken rice) and udon. Though it may be too much for two, it was a very delicious and perfect dinner experience. We spent a total of $63.00.

Mini steamboat delights has always been one of our favorite makan places for my wife and I. Our consistent favorite is their special marinated beef set - which comes in a generous portion for two and adorned with 3 types of veggies - lettuce, tang oh and another variety that i dont know :)
Unlike some other steamboat stalls that offers factory-processed fishballs, meat balls, crab meat sticks etc. Mini steamboat prepares most of the items themselves from fresh ingredients. We particularly like the Tau Pok stuffed with fish paste. Their home-made prawn dumpling is also generously stuffed with prawns, mushroom shreds and chestnuts.
Though the pricing is mid-tiered (around S$20 per pax), we appreciate the fresh ingredients and the preparatory efforts.
My wife and i has frequent this restaurant for the past 13 years. Yesterday, we are aghast when we realized that the foodcourt in which the restaurant is located is closed for renovation. Fortunately, we enquired with a neighbouring shop and found its new location within the Banquet Foodcourt (3rd floor of PP SC, opposite Giant Shopping Centre).
We decide to post this review not just to commend Mini Steamboat Delight for its years of consistency food quality but also to inform fellow foodies of its new location.
I have patronised Mini Steamboat Delight for several years as my wife loves their soup base, especially the spicy one.
We visited the shop again recently and ordered items such as fishball, beef, chicken and prawn dumpling. However, we realised that serving size of the dishes has decreased. For instance, we noticed that the number of slices of beef have been reduced compared to previous visits (while price remains unchanged).
The quality of some of the ingredients is also questionable. For instance, the fishball had a strong fishy smell.
Overall, the experience is disappointing. For the price the shop charged for each item (and bearing in mind that these are simple food items such as fish ball and meat ball), the shop is somehow unable to maintain the quality and quantity. It seems to suggest that the shop is willing to compromise customer satisfaction and value for money for the sake of profit. We have decided not to visit this place again.
It is situated in the food court where they have their own space for customers. It wasn't crowded when I visited on a weekday evening, but it maybe cos it was raining.
Food Items Ordered for 2 Pax:
1) Special set ($38) - 5 live prawns, golden mushrooms, fish glue, pork & fishballs, 2 plates of vegs, fish, sliced pork, specialty pork balls & fishball with fa cai + 2 rice
2) 1 plate of sausages ($4.30)
3) 2 Chrysanthumum Tea ($2.20 each)
In my opinion, the special set is enough for 2 people. I like their house specialty pork balls as it contains sesame. Live prawns are good! Sweet. The main attraction of mini steamboat delights is their tom yum soup & chilli! Not overly spicy, but just enough to have the kick of it. Chilli goes well with every food item!
Been to this stall many times,same like novena 2-in-one mini steamboat,roxy sq steamboat this stall has good tomyam soup.Just that again big eater should not go this stalls as its too expensive to order till u full.Service staff nothing fantastic.Never feel welcome in this 3 stalls.
