This steamboat had a really interesting range of meat and veggies, but not as much fish as I would have liked. The prawns were good though. The main issue was there were no labels to tell you what things were.

This place used to be one of our frequent haunts. Good variety of steamboat choices but freshness can be a problem. Hygiene is one of the biggest issues with this place.

Many choices for self service steamboat. The food is acceptable, but I find it a bit dirty.
