Chongqing's Magic

The Magic Of Chongqing Hotpot  is the undisputed mother of steamboat buffet restaurants and popular for their rich chicken stock soup base. Other unique soup bases on offer are the mala chilli, herbal chicken, herbal turtle broth and hot pot with preserved vegetable. There is an unlimited supply of fresh ingredients such as thinly-sliced beef, sliced pork, fish paste, carp fillet, green vegetables, varieties of mushrooms and four dipping sauces to choose from. Wash all this down with a cup of fragrant (and good for digestion) eight treasures tea. For more Best Buffets reviews, read here*gid-fc280400/photos/#30df0700

CNY reunion nightmare

We booked a table for10 for 7 Feb 2016. When we went into the room,  they already stood by 8 cups of cold 8 treasure tea. If it is complimentary,  I have no comments,  but each cup of tea is chargeable as an extra.  We told them we did not want the tea and told themto take it away.  They should notbe assuming everybody wants 8 treasure tea and have it cold so that is blunder number one. During the steamboat, we took orders that never showed up on at least 2 occasions and when we questioned the waitress (a thin old lady), she said in Chinese "it is like that during CNY". So is the restaurant saying that during CNY the standard will drop? I had to literally walk in n out of the room at least 5 times getting plates, glasses, and getting the waitress in to take orders etc. It is not my first time going to chongqing and  can only say that their standard of service is getting from bad to worse.

Dear mike Tan As noted by your comments, please understand that when you had asked the staff to remove the drinks, it was done so without complains and not charged to your table. As for your comments on the service, the management was in full control of the service and things were not as bad as you mentioned, they even came to check back and apologize for the delay as we are a all you can eat restaurant and that it is served to all customers unlike other restaurant where the customers have to take their own food. Your table was served all dishes ordered and base on the management, your table was generally satisfied with the service and did not comment when they left. Being the first, the best and the original Szechuan hot pot in Singapore, we do treasure our service and are one of the remaining all you can eat serviced Hot Pot restaurants in Singapore. As such fresh food and good service is the most important aspect in our business.

Terrible Service!!

It was the worst service that I ever had! The manager had the worst mannners and accused diners of things that they never did. To add insult to injury, she did not apologize!! 

The customer service is the worst and the food is getting worse as well! Thus, I don't recommend people to come here to eat hot pot. It is not worth the time and money to go there for such an experience.

Dear Jolene We have heard your response and would like to clarify that wrong accusations were not made as we have the right to warn customers not to share the free flow of eight treasure tea consumed in our restaurant, this is because all customers are required to adhere to our company policy as we charge for every cup of tea since it is free flow and great for value. I hope that you will understand that we respect all customers and we expect customers to respect our company policies in return. a simple policy we have also closed one eye is to the wasting of food or over ordering which we not practiced strictly, as in japan, for all you can eat buffet shabu shabu, wastage is charged per gram when being billed. As the original, the first and the best szechuan restaurant in singapore, we hope that we have a reputation to uphold and wrongly accusing customers is not a practice we support.
