Quite a mouthful, this Chinese steamboat restaurant in Bugis, but that’s not surprising given its massive menu of Yunnan cuisine. Hotpot-style dishes are ubiquitous through the Chinese province of Yunnan, and here in Singapore the style is ably represented at Xiang Cao Yunnan Original Ecology Steamboat’s restaurant on Leang Seah Street, connecting Beach Road and North Bridge Road not far from Bugis MRT. Add thinly sliced meat, spices, mushrooms (a big part of Yunnan cuisine), seafood, vegetables and much more to customise a Chinese steamboat meal that’s best shared around the table. Book a table in advance to avoid disappointment.
Still loving this place! Can't stop visiting this restaurant woohoo
The price for all-you-can-eat buffet is just worth its value. The service crews are very friendly and attentive. overall is good and worth a visit.
Its a good play to have steamboat! Love the food
Its just like HDL, but so much cheaper and nicer! In fact better than HDL i would say. Even if its cheap the quality of the food still has it's standard! Definitely coming back often! What is bad is that there is a time limit.
fresh food n such . many times here already. good service . but this recent visit went there around 7:30 and took the normal buffet and was told beef was out of stock :( peak hour and item was out of stock. Abit disappointed. but the mutton make up to it. everything great except Abit noisy at times .
I always dine there but it’s not buffet. So I was with my customer we eat n eat as we didn’t know there is a timing for buffet dinner,but we call for bill the manager was so rude talk so loudly n say buffet only 90 mins because today it’s not packed that’s why we give u all a chance. I’m like what kind of rude attitude is this. First they didn’t even mention about the time. 😡
Place was easy to locate and service was good. Ordering was made easy via ipad. The variety of selection was reasonable, ingredients were super fresh and reasonably priced. There was a variety of soup base to choose from. Their speciality soup base- mushroom was a little too overpowering for my friends and I. Skip that if you're not a great fan of mushroom. Would highly recommend the chicken and tomato soup base.
Great experience with Xiang cao hotpot! Easy reservations with quandoo. However, it will be better if there is a bell to press for service. As we were seated at a hidden corner, we have to walk out to get the attention of the waiter. Overall, great place!
We took the cheaper dinner set. Selection for meat items was pretty limited but it was fine as we were not meat lovers anyway. Vegetables and mushrooms were really fresh. Soup base was good - not salty and overpowering.
We had the 3 non-spicy soup base including mushrooms based. As we are not very hungry, we went for the set instead of buffet. A good thing is the restaurant allows change of any item as long as we top up the difference. Soup is tasty. Price is also considered good for the quality of food.
