Best experience ever, you can spend a couple of hours easily cooking the meat and fish plus noodles in the big hot pot for which you can share the spice you want in. I normally go for the spicy one and it is great!

Haven't been served by such friendly, genuine, helpful people in a long time. Made the whole experience a joy. The food is also great, and the sources and condiments and extras all make the whole thing very exciting.

All you can eat hot pot with good selection of vegetable, meat, fresh seafood, Toufu, baozi and more! A good selection of sauce and seasoning for you to mix your own dip. Real authentic Chinese hotpot. Fantastic value given the quality of the food. Highly recommend to everybody visiting Edinburgh, especially for those who are looking for authentic Chinese hotpot...

My boyfriend and I were just craving for some hot soup in the cold weather since it's winter and we stumbled upon this restaurant on tripadvisors. Decided to try it as the reviews seems good and it's really good! Mala soup was great! The ingredients were fresh and it's well worth the price. In fact, we wanted to go for... More

dining in Edinburgh in this Chinese hot pot restaurant brings me back to China. We were the only foreigners sitting inside. Probably the owner of this place moved one couple to smaller table so we can enjoy bigger table with our 10 months old kid. Food was good, for a decent price, you might choose variation of see food, noodles,... More

First visit to this restaurant and to be honest we went in because we only saw Chinese faces, a good sign. They only hotpot or often called steamboat but my goodness with a difference. You chose which stock, up to three types or all three then chose your favourite ingredients, really, whatever you want. The cost is £15 pp for... More

A short 5-8 mins walk from Haymarket station. Glad we found this authentic mala hotpot restaurant through Tripadvisor's recommendation. Good variety and so delicious on a cold evening. The family enjoyed it!

Great food and service! Lovely staff that were very explanatory of the way the restaurant worked. I thought 2 hours of all you can eat hot pot for £16pp was very reasonable as well, with £2 refillable drinks!
