Hot, steaming broth of your choice with a wide array of ingredients, makes for the perfect combination of a hearty meal.

As the hot weather slowly gives way to heavy rain, hot soup and warm bellies start sounding really good. Hot pot or steamboat restaurants make a great setting for a get together with a wide range of ingredients, so there is something for everyone.

We are not sure what it is, whether it is the fact that you don’t need a fancy eight-course dinner for a merry gathering of family and friends. Or perhaps that incredibly satisfying feeling of dipping thinly sliced meat into the boiling soup and savouring it with the many sauces and condiments.

Let’s explore some of the best hot pot restaurants in Klang Valley in case the craving for hot soup strikes soon.

Hong Kong HotPot

You may not think of Bangsar for a hot pot fix, but this outlet is a good place to go for a steaming hot meal. Order the Berkshire Premium Pork Slice or the Sakura Premium Pork Neck Slice for some good fatty slices of meat. The health-conscious, look away now.

Address:  Lot 9 &10 , Level 2 Telawi Square, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.


Located at The Roof at Bandar Utama, this makes a good place for an impressive date with luxurious ambience and sumptuous food. Set against a backdrop of the city’s view, the rather steep price here commensurates with the service and delicious food.

Address:  The Roof, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya

Chun Ciou Hot Pot

People frequent this outlet for the rather theatrical way they serve their thinly sliced meat: dangling on a rack on top of dried ice. The very Oriental set up of the place would distinctly give a feel as if you had stepped into an eatery in China.

Taifeng Taiwanese Hot Pot

Foodies have given their thumbs up to this Taiwanese joint due to their unusual soup, sour vegetable with pork soup that comes laden with meat. The ingredients here are fresh and of superior quality, even the processed fare of fish and meatballs are freshly made.

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining

Wagyu beef lovers, head this way for your share of this decadent meat. Located at Parkroyal Hotel, this shabu shabu outlet offers a bang for the buck. You wouldn’t want to miss their portions of Wagyu that comes with mouth-watering marbling.

Address: Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur

Hai Di Lao Hot Pot

When the famous Hai Di Lao finally opened its doors in Malaysia last year, hot pot fans were overjoyed. Now they don’t have to go to Singapore for a hot pot treat. Warning, the wait list for this place is long, so book ahead if you want to try their spicy ‘Ma La’ soup.
