There are more than enough places to pick up a great meal in Singapore, and the quality of the food is never in doubt. The ambience can often be called into question, however, as anyone who has attempted to chow down in a packed hawker centre will know, so when we recommend JIN HO MIA in the Alexandra Retail Centre, you know that you’re in for a treat, especially considering its name translates to a really good life. They offer friendly staff, a chic environment and a contemporary, modern decor that will put you in the perfect state of mind to enjoy the food on offer. The food isn’t shabby either: there are sensational, sizzling hotpot choices as well as a wholesome range of rice bowl dishes all brimming with the freshest ingredients you’ll find anywhere. So do yourself a favour, and take a trip to the Alexandra Retail Centre on Alexandra Road – the nearest train station is Labrador Park – and book a table for some incredible Asian fare.
Good food, good service. Food came out very quickly after ordering. Ipad ordering system wasn’t working at the time though, slight hiccup there. Joined as member.
The store manager is very passionate about her work. She make sure every single customers paid for what they get. Eg. Freshness and quantity...thumbs up

Nice and quiet place to talk and chill after work. Beer is not cheap, Wish there was more happy hour promotions, but otherwise will come again.
My friends and I had the Alaskan Crab Hot Pot with the fish stock soup base. The food lacked the flavours we were expecting as the entire dish tasted more like a home-cooked instant noodle dish. The seafood was not entirely fresh and the roasted pork became too soft for our liking, contrary to what was described in one of the food blogger's review of the place. "It was our first time having roast pork in a hotpot, but we were pleasantly surprised. The meat soaked up the broth very well, while the crackling skin remained crisp." Overall, not worth a visit for the price paid.
The food/hotpot took a while to cook up, so they should improve on that. Especially during lunch hours when people want to eat fast and go. And food variety should be more as well. Good soup bases for hotpot. Has not tried their non-soup meal sets.
The staff were friendly and the Ah Bou pot was on promo, so it was a good value for money. However i would advise against buying the alaskan crab and abalone, they were tasteless and chewy, probably frozen and cooked multiple times :(
Excellent and friendly service. Food is good value and coffee is good. Table allocated is good location and promptly available. Will come back to try other set lunch.
Good price point! Excellent service! Very attentive staff 👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻 Good selection on soup base. Topping up was easy breezy, service staff came to check diligently every 10- 15min. Awesome place!
Tried the hotpot for the first time, was good. I liked that there was also a free membership that I could sign up for to accrue savings for return visits.
