This hot pot restaurant (boiling meat in broth) is a great evening out. Food is lovely (try the spicy broth!) and the staff entertain the crowd with masked dances and noodle jugglers. Impossible to book a table so better join the long queues and wait for a table. The mall is temporarily closed for refurbishment as of winter 2016/2017 so... More

We've been to this wonderful restaurant twice and we will be coming back for more. Great food and service at very modest prices. Family friendly and with great sauce options and a lot of other freebies, such as a table with snacks while waiting for a table. Overall a very delicious and fun experience!

Excellent hot pot! Two reasons to go early, the wait for a table can get quite long (you may be able to make reservations, but I'm not sure) and their seafood selection is great (as with a lot of places in Qingdao), however, once the seafood runs out, it is not replenished, so I suggest to go early to get...

We are Americans traveling in China and absolutely LOVED our dinner at Haidilao! They seated us quickly despite a line (and no reservation). That could be due to our wonderful Chinese friends who were with us- perhaps they negotiated something. Anyway, the food is really delicious! They presented a mild broth and a spicy one in which we cooked fish... More

Where do I start? I was in Qingdao for a business trip and we came here for lunch. The service was unbeatable, by far the most enjoyable dining experience I've had in China. The staff were super friendly and attentive, their smiles never fade. The food was fresh and delicious. Definitely would return if I get the chance!
