Can't decide between having a BBQ, steamboat, or buffet? Or just wished that you can have them all? Then Hao Lai Wu Steamboat & BBQ is the place to be! With unconventional features such as crystal pots (which prevent accidental burns) and smokeless grills (basically a parchment paper-lined hotplate), together with air-conditioning and fans, you're bound to leave this place safe, clean, and happy HAHA

For $22.80++ per pax on weekends, I would say that this is value-for-money considering the level of comfort in this small restaurant and the HUGE variety of ingredients available (there's almost everything trust me).

Just a word of caution from me:
1. Some of the meats are not marinated so sauces are necessary, or just sprinkle your desired seasoning over the meats while they're grilling!
2. However, the seafood items were "very salty", probably because they were pre-marinated with salt to preserve its quality.


You can choose from 6 different soups, need to top up $6 if choosing 2 soup bases. Prices were at $23.80++ per pax. Drinks and wet tissues not included, must top up. Crowd during dinner times on weekdays seems pretty alright to me. I arrived at ard 7pm and still manage to get seats indoors. If you want the crystal hotpot, do request to sit inside as I note the outside areas uses the normal pot instead. Moreover inside have aircon!

We tried the mala (I asked for less spicy) and the chicken herbal soup. It was interesting to touch the pot and it doesn't burn! It felt hot but not enough to burn yet. Impressive!

Selection of seafood was wide. Prawns were on the mushy side, not that fresh. Choice of meats were good, I personally like the chicken whereas my friends liked the pork belly. There were the typical veggies and mushrooms. They also have cooked food like french fries, dumplings etc. Cool thing abt this place is that they have both grill and hotpot, so you can eat both types of food. My favourite was the fried mantou, would be perfect if they had some chili crab sauce to go with it!

Overall, pretty decent price too pay for a steamboat cum grill buffet. We were pretty stuffed by the end of it 😋


[UPDATE] Weekdays lunch buffet is now $17.80++ for adults. Great range of variety and 6 different soup bases to choose from. For cooked food they have fried buns (really crispy) and steamed dumplings (pork & cabbage / pork & chives flavour).
** Drinks are not free. You will be charged additionally for it.


Dipping food into the unique crystal pot and BBQ-ing at the same time!
With so much free flow dishes to choose from at such affordable prices, it's definitely value for money !

Is it really possible for a steamboat to be less than $15?!😱 Well, this bbq and steamboat for lunch is $10++ for students and $13++ for adults , for dinner it would be slightly more ex at about $18++?? It is sooo affordable and since its a buffet , you can take whatever u want☺️

What caught my attention is the crystal pot used for the steamboat😍😍 Only a 5m walk from Chinatown mrt!! Recommended for steamboat lovers that wants a cheaper steamboat alternative☺️👍🏻
