It's still popular at this quiet area of shopping mall.  The steamboat standard still maintain at its delectable grade.  And the dessert & side dish orders are yummy after the spicy meal.  The spicy soup base still can cause my lips to turn sauage after eating.

This is definitely one of my favourite place for mala steamboat! The restaurant is decorated with many oriental elements such as the Chinese red lanterns hanging at the sides of the restaurant, numerous Chinese inscriptions, wooden tables and chairs, and traditional Chinese utensils.

They have 4 types of condiments available for us to mix. 3 types of broth for steamboat and we had the chicken and of course the ma-la. We had the lunch buffet and there were a large variety of food for us to order and it was fresh. We ordered many many plates of fish paste, veg, meats, fish and others.

Sweet and Savoury Tidbits - each person is serve a set of tidbits such as dumplings, xiao long bao, Egg Coated Glutinous Square, Fried Roll Buns, Water Chestnut Jelly & eight Treasures “Black Rice” or Mixed Fruits in Syrup.

Overall, this steamboat is reasonably priced for the wide food range and superior quality. Service is generally decent but when the restaurant is fully packed, the staff might get busy and forget your orders. Otherwise, they are generally prompt and courteous. Worth a try!

Here is the undisputed mother of steamboat buffet restaurants: The Magic of Chongqing Hotpot has been around for 20 years, and it keeps its customers coming back for its rich chicken stock soup base. Other unique soup bases offered are the mala chilli (you can tell the staff how spicy you want it), herbal chicken, herbal turtle broth and a vegetarian stock with preserved vegetables.There is an unlimited supply of fresh ingredients such as thinly-sliced beef, sliced pork, fish paste, carp fillet, fresh prawns, beancurd, green vegetables, varieties of mushrooms and four dipping sauces to choose from. Wash all this down with a cup of fragrant (and digestion-aiding) eight treasures tea.
