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.

Very little food choices and variety and very small portions. For this price, it's not worth it, quite expensive in fact, considering food isn't that great. service and ambience quite average, although the place is quite cramped and squeezy. After going once, I was so sick of the food and my friend recommended me to another steamboat place, forgot the name but it's just beside the famous duck rice stall. Cheaper and good variety of food, price includes free flow drink and ice cream, something Xian De Lai does not offer. Only thing bad about this place is it's outdoor, so there's no aircon. Other than that, good place, value for money and staff are attentive, will definitely come back again. Never ever going back to Xian De Lai, too overpriced.

So long time ago that I have been to this steamboat place for a few times. I found it the steamboat broth was very refreshing and tasty in eating a lot of the ingredients.

Recently just got to know they have opened another branch at NEX. I shall go there and try it out one of these days. As I saw from TV, the steamboat cooker is an unique colorful pot.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
