Hai Di Lao hotpot chain is one of the most popular in town famous for its service. The food is standard Sichuanese hotpot, but it's a great experience nonetheless.
There are long lines, but staff members will offer manicures, shoe shines or maybe even play with you while you wait. Free soybean milk, fruit and snacks are available while you wait to be seated.
The food is as good as anywhere. The dishes can be served by half portion if you want to try more things.
Don't forget to ask for the kung fu noodle show. An energetic waiter will pull noodles right at your table, twirling them like streamers and dropping them in your pot. It's also the first hotpot restaurant to provide delivery service.
