I came with anticipation but turned out to be experienced with an awful memory.
The food was not good, such as the known 3-colour handmade rounds(手打丸) have same taste. Also, a staff, a tall and big man with an earphone and responding with hesitation and indifference, kept asking us to order seafood. I booked a table for 4, and finally one of my friends didn't come. The restaurant remained to charge us 4 sauce fee($25 each). Worse still, as long as we had double checked the discount using HSBC credit card with their staff in advance, they charged us the original price and insisted the discount only offers from Monday to Thursday. The staff even asked us the name of staff who told us such offer (Who cares the staff name during reservation!). Eventually the bill has been amended because of our insistence. But to be frank, I was absolutely disappointed to finish the meal.

The famous Michelin 1 star Hot Pot 2013-10-21 FoodieAly (共有29篇食評)
To call for a celebrating meal, you could always count on the famous Michelin 1 star Hot Pot - King's Garden restaurant. I have been here for numerous time and have not been disappointed once. It is true that a lot of people wouldn't hot pot at the price but for the quality of the ingredients and soup base, plus the not as noisy environment. It does explain the price range they are charging their customer.It was always very pleasant to start with mixing your own sauces. Just look at all the options that available presented in this organized arrangement. For the night, we had the Chinese yellow wine chicken pot as the soup base. It came with half a chicken and some chinese herbs with ginger as part of the soup. We listened to the staff's tip and didn't cook all the chicken pieces at once. This enable us to kept the chicken soft and juicy, and mostly importantly not overcooking them.
We also ordered the hand sliced local beef slices. It was not that impressive this time. I would go for the beef cubes instead for my next visit. The mixed fusion cuttlefish balls were also my all time favorite. They were recommended to pair with shrimp paste sauce. It might be a little unappetizing for my foreign friends, but one of the delights was gooses intestine. They are so fatty and fresh. It is not those frozen ones that normally served. Goose liver (or duck liver) was always a must on my order list in every visit. The fatty goose liver was melting in the mouth with its richness. It is total different experience from pan fried foie gras. It is mouth watering to writing down the details of this nice meal. I hope you will enjoy this place as much as I do.
