Tiansian is a large and somewhat fancy but slightly past-prime hot-pot restaurant on the second floor of a building on a busy commerical street. You pay for the soup---you can choose normal, spicy, or half and half---and then order the different things you want to put in à la carte. We ordered seam bream, blue shrimp, crab balls, broccoli. The seafood was all very fresh, but I discovered that I don't know how to make a very good hot pot. Things were further complicated a little by a series of minor misfortunes. One item didn't arrive from the kitchen and that seemed to be a bigger deal for the wait staff than it should have been. Then the gas bottle under the table ran out during dinner and had to be changed. The service was a little gruff. But the soup was very good. We ordered the combination. Both sides are crammed with garlic and all kinds of roots and herbs. The spicy broth is also crammed with chili peppers and is like sipping liquid fire, especially since all the hotness gets extracted into the floating oil. It's pretty good, but be warned! One final note: dinner here costs a little more than I expected it too before looking at the menu.
