Plenty of steamboat, mookata and hotpot places around Singapore dress up sub-par ingredients with fancy decoration and funky marketing. The opposite is true of iSteamboat, a genuine, family-run restaurant on Raffles Boulevard that offers an incredible all-day buffet of steamboat ingredients, a la carte options and side dishes. This is the real deal for modern Chinese steamboat, so skip the pretenders and get a group together at iSteamboat Chinese Restaurant, handily located right by Esplanade MRT station.

New location was difficult to find, but they tried to maintain ambience.
Simple delicious dishes. Ice cream has 6 flavours - 5 out of stock and no top up. Some dishes also do not hv top up. Service is good, the attendant help with to scoop ice cream forcustomers.
Overall experience was good. The food was definitely value for money with the amount of variety. It is also good for gatherings with friends and family.
iSteamboat Chinese Restaurant really do offer a unique buffet experience, one that feels far more down-to-Earth and family-oriented than most you’ll find inside the glitzy hotels dotted around Esplanade and Singapore’s Marina Bay. This welcoming place is comfortable, unpretentious and friendly, yet it has enough tantalising dishes to feed a whole army – to be precise, iSteamboat offer over 50 ingredients for steamboat and almost the same number of cooked a la carte Chinese dishes. It’s found right at Marina Square on Raffles Boulevard, and iSteamboat is well worth a visit if you want to embark on a proper steamboat adventure.
Like most steamboat and hotpot places in Singapore, the journey at iSteamboat starts with the broth; however, unlike other places, the choice is not between basic seafood, meat or vegetarian but also a fragrant herbal soup, kimchi base, hot and spicy or less hot ma la soup. After that the fun really begins, with anything from sugarcane prawn rolls to bean sprouts and dried pork skin available from the self-serve buffet to create a tasty broth just to your liking. It’s best enjoyed among friends or family, so gather a group to Raffles Boulevard near Esplanade MRT station and look forward to a humble yet hearty Chinese buffet.
