Xian De Lai Shanghai Cuisine is located at Liang Seah Street and serves Chinese steamboat.
The restaurant is of 2 storeys but seats are still a little cramped though. The food quality is nevertheless not compromised and the staffs' service are still acceptable. But it may be crowded on weekends so try your luck on weekdays or make a reservation first!
Thought of going for a good steamboat dinner with my wife and ended up a unhappy one with this restaurant.
The waitress put us on a table for two with a slide out table for us to put the dishes we ordered. When the steamboat dishes are served on the side table i notice that my wife who was seated (back facing the wall) was not able to come.out from the table as all the other tables are placed so close to each other.
When i told the staff about this and they can tell.me that she dont have to come out until when she finish she meal!
This really make me angry that i tell them off and this will be my last time dining this restaurant.

I thought that they totally do not deserve the bad reviews on Hungry Go Where, or maybe it's because they improved after seeing the reviews. Other than the slightly cramped seating, I had a pretty good experience there! The service was pretty prompt. Even though, we were a group of 5 and the restaurant was packed, we were assigned a table within 15 min. Not too bad for a Friday evening in my opinion. Plus, the food was served in less than 15 minutes too.
The broth was nice, we had the spicy chicken/pork ribs soup. The spicy chicken broth wasn't as spicy as I expected. And then, surprisingly, for a steamboat place, the star of the show wasn't any item that went into steamboat. It was their pork belly aka kong ba! It was superb man!
The buffet price was ok, about 22 SGD but drinks will pretty expensive at 27 SGD a jug of beer.
