I have tried hot pot several times and never enjoyed it. At all.... Went here last week with some friends and I almost coul'd walk out as I was so stuffed. Everything was delicious. We had kids with us so we went with the tomato based broth and it was good enough to eat on its own. The service is... More

What is so hip about this restaurant? It's the extra service they rendered to their customers. There are complimentary manicures, free snacks, fruits, wi-fi, clean aprons for each customers, bag covers, a lady serving you hot towels at basin area, shaving tools. They have more than 10 types of dipping sauce to choose from. It's a great experience to eat... More

Our meal here was such fun! To beat the dinnertime crowd, we arrived at 8pm and was told to wait for about 45 mins in the waiting area. We snacked and took pictures and watched a performance and pretty soon, we had a table for the three of us. We immediately placed our orders and staff informed us that we... More

We had lunch here enroute to Pudong & the service was excellent. The staff try to understand what we want. This was the only restaurant we've been during our 4 day-trip that the staff were cheerful. Highly recommended especially to the discerning traveller!

This restaurant is legendary in Shanghai, for several reasons in addition to the excellent food quality. 1. The staff are extremely cheerful, and helpful, nothing is too much for them. 2. Although the restaurant is usually full, people enjoy the pleasures of the waiting area, snacks are provided to those waiting, also various games are played, ladies are offerred a... More

One of the best meals i have ever had. This has to be one of the best service you will ever experience in a trip to China. The staff are extremely courteous; the food is decent; there is even a CCTV to allow parents to survey their children while their children are at the playground. However, the staff are unable...

Amazing spicy hotpot (we only took the spicy). I've had top ranked hotspots in chongqing and Chengdu and this was better than any of them. The service is amazingly friendly. I'll be back for sure

Hotpot is great and this place is a lot of fun. The noodle guy was better here than in Beijing. Our only problem was nobody spoke any english, but we were able to get another customer to help us order. Only the actual pots had pictures on the menu. Get the spicy pot with numbseeds!

I have finally been to Hai Di Lao after I heard many good recommendations about it. I always hesitated to go because I knew we couldn't make any reservation and the waiting time was very long. Indeed, we had to wait an hour to get a table, but they place you at a waiting table with games and appetizers. You... More
