Best hot pot in Sh

Good prices and best service. I was in Xujiahui Hai Di Lao and HDL on Changshou road. Better go on weekend daytime. In the evening you will have to wait an hour in table queue. Two girls bill was 150rmb.

So I been to this place three times now. First time I thought this place was pretty cool and really different. The service they provide is WELL beyond anyones expectations. I told the server anything and they will try their best to accomodate. However, my second and third trip the service got poorer and waiters were not as enthusiastic anymore.... More

This is a very popular hot pot chain in China. I've been to several locations and they are all extremely popular with the locals. The wait can be crazy long, we were once quoted 3 hours for a weekend dinner. In each resaturant, they have a big section for the waiting guests. There is often free fruit, snacks, and tea... More

More worth it if you are sharing with a big group. Three of us shared and each of us paid about RMB100. The queue is rather long at all the outlets so be prepared to wait for a while. In the meantime, feel free to engage in the free activities provided such as board games or manicure for the ladies!

We had three generations of family and we all loved it. Tons of fun! At the end, they brought out a complimentary dessert of fruit that... More

Haidilao is increasingly popular for locals and tourists alike. They are known for the service, activities provided to diners while queuing rather than the freshness of the food itself. Order the kongfu noodles and you get some entertainment from the person pulling the noodles. The staff are incredibly friendly and attention is paid to details such as providing aprons, wipes...
