Hai Xian Lao Singapore is without a doubt, one of our favourite places to fill up on hot pot. Singapore is crazy about the hot pot or steamboat way of eating, so it’s no surprise that the quality of fare on offer in this Dhoby Ghaut restaurant is exceptional. Hai Xian Lao specialises in both Chinese and Singaporean-style dishes and you can opt for the a la carte menu or feast ‘til you pop with the buffet. Everything on offer here is delightfully flavoursome and we honestly can’t get enough. You can find Hai Xian Lao’s charming dining space in Singapore’s Wilkie Edge Mall along Wilkie Road where reservations are essential to avoid disappointment.
Hai Xian Lao’s Chinese hot pot fusion concept begins and ends with the sumptuous steamboat sunk into diners’ tables, perfect for getting each other’s chopsticks tangled as you reach over for another tasty morsel, cooked to perfection in a broth of your choice. Choose from laksa, collagen or tomato, chicken, the hellishly spicy Sichuan soup, or tom yum as the base for your feast. Hai Xian Lao Singapore most certainly knows how to whip up a soup base that’s packed with flavour. Take a moment to enjoy watching the world go by from your eyrie in Singapore’s central Wilkie Edge Mall along Wilkie Road as your soup is delivered. The next stage is to select the ingredients to be dunked in your choice of base. Hai Xian Lao in Dhoby Ghaut has both extensive a la carte and buffet menus to say the least, so be sure to arrive very hungry indeed.
Some of the delightful seafood on offer at Hai Xian Lao includes the Alaskan king crab, fresh oysters, bamboo clams and green mussels. All of which are delicious when boiled in a fiery, tongue-numbing Sichuan broth. Indeed, Hai Xian Lao’s premises in Singapore’s Wilkie Edge Mall is distinctive due to the presence of live seafood tanks. Seeing these, you know that this Chinese-Singaporean hot pot restaurant is using nothing but the freshest seafood available. And, besides seafood, Hai Xian Lao offers a selection of meats and vegetables will leave you with a burning desire to return here time, and time again.

The food was good and the customer service was exceptional. Thank you for letting us have such a good dining experience at Hai Xian Lao!
Waitress was really nice & they were very thoughtful as we did not mention it was our friends birthday, but we did pass them a cake to help refrigerate. Yet they cooked longevity noodles for our friend out of goodwill. Will patronize again

Excellent customer service, with fresh and good variety of food! Second time coming back, and will definitely recommend to others.. Keep up the great work!
There is a wide variety of choices to choose from and it is good that the portion are rather small so that I do not overeat or waste the food. And at the end, there was a complimentary fruit served. Not sure if they have it everyday. However there is just slight flies issue but it’s not a big deal actually.
Food was average and only one round of prawns-3 pieces n fish paste (small portion) per pax. Rest of items are normal steamboat stuff. Ran out of cheese tofu which is pretty normal item on Sat night. Feel could have done better by informing customers what items are not available rather than they keep ordering and not served which cause frustration. I can only say overall service was above expectations, thumbs up to service staffs.
Love the soup bases and the ingredients are very fresh. Buffet is very worth the price and they even have special price for senior citizens. Service was good as well.
Great service! Reasonable price. Nice food! Many variety of food. Staff was very attendtive. Will visit again. Great service! Reasonable price. Nice food! Many variety of food. Staff was very attendtive. Will visit again.
