There are 4 different types of soup base to choose from. They have Chicken Soup, Fish Soup, Tom Yam Soup and Herbs Soup. We are so fortunate that we able to tastes the 4 different kind of soups. And our table for the night is number 6. I am just sitting in front of the switch control...... ^-^ and there are 5 mode from low to high. So you can control it by yourself easily.
Apart from the steamboat, they also have the teppanyaki corners.......... above are some of the foods offer from the teppanyaki corners. And sometime they also have crabs and other seafood's. It depends on the season.......
This is what we had from the teppanyaki corners...... apart from the teppanyaki corner, they also have some ready to eat foods such as nuggets, deep fried chicken, fried rice and fry noodles.....
Thanks to Jian, she took some bean curd and seafood tofu to teppanyaki corner and we had delicious bean curd and seafood tofu after being grilled. And we had two plates of those. ^-^

Hi, saw this recommendation and went with my friends, total 8 ppl yesterday nite. Arrive at 8pm, food almost gone. Left alot of fish balls and fish cake. Refills of the food took very long. BBQ waited 1 hour. People working there look gloomy. I do hope they improve, otherwise it would not be worth it to go there a 2nd time.

Dinner was disappointing for my friends and I. After reading the review from this website, we decided to add this venue to our "food adventure". Unfortunately, many of the food were gone when we arrived at 8pm. The selection is very little compared to what was mentioned here. Also, the chocolate "fountain" was actually a bowl of chocolate. Refills were slow even though there were many tables fully occupied.
My friends and I really hope that these comments are positively taken by the restaurant.
