Having passed by this steamboat restaurant in my previous visits, I vowed to give it a try soon. So, there I was last night, after a workout in the gym and looking for something light for dinner – steamboat was the most perfect choice!
The square & rectangular tables were all fitted with individual hotpots for each diner. The hotpots also have individual electronic heat controllers so each diner can control the temperature of his/her boiling soup. They serve standard clear chicken soup – additional flavours are chargeable. For RM2.50 more, you can have Herbal, Tomyam etc.
The Single Set
The steamboat stuff can be ordered by individual plates or you can go for the sets. Single, couple and family sets are available. Examples: Sliced Beef Hotpot @ RM21.95, Squid Hotpot @ RM20.95. Individual plates of steamboat items start from RM1.00 upwards. Besides steamboat, they also serve some rice and noodle dishes as well as Grilled items.

The steamboat items were fresh and portions were generous. What I liked most was that lots of vegetables were included in the sets. There was a huge mountain of white cabbage, Chinese cabbage and lettuce. The soup was oil-less and flavorful of chicken stock. The chilli-dip, sprinkled with sesame, was decent enough.

The Boston Fried Shrimp with Rice (RM15.95) had 6 medium-sized prawns fried in black pepper topping a mound of fried rice which had sliced Bombay onions, raisins and eggs.
On the whole, it’s pricier than what you would pay in a usual steamboat place. I guess you also have to pay for the location and ambience of the place here!
