Recommendation by Wabisavi

If you have some cash to spare and you want to impress your guests, Haidilao is the place to go. We used to always entertain our friends from abroad at Michelin starred Din Tai Fung, but ever since @aaaa1982000 recommended this place, I've had an instant change of heart. Their hot-pot might not be the best in town (it's still delicious though, don't get me wrong!), but a dinner here is an experience you will not forget. I knew I had fallen in love when queue-hating me promptly agreed to head there 1.5h before dinner time just to get our queue number. You can only make reservations on the 1st of the month for the following month (that's how popular it is), but as a walk-in you get a QR code and are free to wander off into the shopping district. But then, would you? Haidilao is notoriously generous with its endless freebies (I seem to discover a new one everytime I visit), and the list starts before you even cross the restaurant's threshold. Of course there is free tea served around the waiting area, but how about curbing those hunger pangs with some free Häagen-Dazs ice-cream (and every new barrel is a new flavour)? If you get bored of waiting, you can always take a spin on their massage chair or get your nails done. Yup, all for free. Once an hour during evening service, the mysterious face-changing dancer will make his appearance (if you're still waiting outside, no worries, you'll get to snap some pictures with him and then be ushered into the restaurant to watch the show anyway). The jealously kept secret of this Sichuan art will leave you mind-baffled, as the performer switches between masks in the blink of an eye while dancing to a Chinese-inspired soundtrack. Once you get seated, the impeccable service will start to unfold, with covers arranged over your jackets to protect them from smells, aprons to save your clothes from accidental splashes, ties for long-haired guests and wet wipes for your glasses in case they get too oily during the meal. If your phone is out, a little ziplock bag for it will appear on your table, lest you accidentally drop it into the boiling soup while trying to get that perfect flatlay shot for the gram. Your glass will never be empty, plates will never pile up, your soup will never get cloudy, and a mere glance around the restaurant will attract a server to your table to attend to your every request. Unsure how to concoct the perfect hot-pot sauce? They got you covered. Ordered prawns but now don't want to get your new nails dirty? They'll do it for you. The spicy soup is too spicy? They will fix it (or try to, it's called "Numbing Spicy" for a reason and I recommend avoiding it if you can't handle your chili). Got children? They'll get toys and a special area is set up for them to play freely, while you keep an eye on them at all times through your table's iPad. Want more? Order the noodles, and they will be hand-pulled on the spot in a gravity-defying ribbon dance by a performer equipped with a portable radio. Order 2 servings of noodles to get to see the performance twice in a row 😂. Still not enough? You can sign up for their loyalty programme and rack up points to exchange for attractive branded goods. And while you're ending your meal with more of that Häagen-Dazs, don't forget to get your leather shoes shined 😉.
