If you are looking for a restaurant that is fun, high tech, and serves delicious food, then head to Haidilao Hot Pot in Marina Square. For those unfamiliar with the Haidilao restaurant brand, it has been around for 20 years, hails from China and is known for serving scrumptious hot and spicy Sichuan food (namely hot pot). Singapore has 9 other branches, so even if you have already visited a Haidilao Hot Pot branch, you will want to check out this new branch at Marina Square, as it is the first high tech restaurant outside of China.
The cool high tech features to keep an eye out for are firstly, the forest and waterfall light and sound projections on the walls, which will help keep the kids entertained while eating dinner. Secondly, the 5G corner which has an Augmented Reality (AR) car racing game. Thirdly, the automated soup trays (for mala and tomato-based soups) that allow you to pick your preference in terms of soup thickness, sourness, sweetness, and saltiness. Your preferences are even saved and can be used next time you come into the restaurant. Last but not least, the robot servers who scoot around serving dishes to your table.
Along with all the high-tech features, there is a separate kids’ playroom* for coloring (with light projections on the walls), free manicures* with a very impressive wall of nail polish colors, and entertaining noodle dancers who have the grace of rhythmic gymnasts twirling ribbons. This branch is very popular though, so it’s best to go early! Reservations are not taken after 6:30pm, so you will need to wait in line.
*These services are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Visit the Haidilao Facebook page for updates.
