Saw a lot of hypes about Haidilao so it piqued my curiosity about all the videos made about it, and I can for certain it did NOT disappoint. It’s an amazing restaurant, and luckily we came mid afternoon (2-3) that the wait was not that long. The interior was stunning with modern but minimalistic designs. An added bonus is that there were free manicures and a bubble tea cafe inside! (Would definitely have got boba is I didn’t already bring my own) Now onto the star event! The hotpot! How can I say this but it was absolutely amazing! Enjoyed every bit, this is definitely a place to go with friends as Hot pot is a social event 💕 the staff was excellent and the food was delicious. Haidilao was an amazing experience and I’ve been praising it so much, but the only reason I’ve given it 4 stars is because despite everything, homemade hotpot beats all. The amount of meat (and additional stuff such as scallops and fish cake) given was not that much (impressive and high quality so I understand why) I believe each serving is for one person or perhaps two, but going as a group it didn’t feel as though we had enough. (We were all full because we had a variety amount of different items, but let’s be real. We’re really all here for the meat. Also, there’s no silken tofu, and the tofu they give is very spongy.) Now that I’ve experienced it, I will say I would definitely come here again. Haidilao is an experience to have and a treat to enjoy every once in a while, though next time I would definitely order more meat and noodles.
Good hotpot with great service, always packed inside with lively background music. In UK you have to pay for watermelon whereas in China it is one of the free treats at the sauce stations. I felt the meat was if a good quality and the deep fried tofu strips were good, also lotus leaves seemed fresh. Price can add up quite quickly so important to keep yourself in check. I will be going back.
Amazing! Filling, VERY tasty and quite an experience. My friend who is from China says there are 1000 of these in Bejing. No wonder. A recipe for success. Great service, attentive, ask whatever questions you need, an prepare your own food kinda sorta. Eat what you want, how you want it. And there is a whole tech side to the restaurant that is quite cool.
