Fabulous hotpot!!

A fantastic restaurant! Best service ever and you have to order noodles just to see the noodle show! Food is excellent and if you like spicy hotpot it's the place to come. Highly recommend it!

We ordered one beef, one lamb, few vegetables, the pork meatball, and chef's recommendation hand-scooped fish puree. I and boyfriend both got sick the day after, in particular the stomach.

Hai de Lao has consistently good restaurants in their chain of Hot pot restaurants. The shanghai location is virtually indistinguishable from the Beijing and Qingdao locations. The food and soup is consistently good, the service is good with energetic and well trained staff. You can always depend on this restaurant for a good meal for one or a hundred. To... More

Immediately, we were served and greeted by front dest staff, getting us a waiting ticket, followed by free serving of snacks and drinks. Food quality was... More

The first time I ate duckfeet and beef stomach. In the mix of all the rest, beef, fish, seafood and veggies in great spicy sauces you will be happy you went. Crowdy place that you won't easily forget.

I love spicy and my mouth was completely on fire!!! We had the Szechuan hot pot with beef and lamb. The meat was very fresh. We... More

The best hot pot in Shanghai, at least that's how the concierge of our hotel said. The same information we got from some search on the web, and it seems that a review on the Harvard Business Review made this place even more successful. Actually we enjoyed the food and the overall experience a lot. Two different soup bases at... More
