Yes and no. No in between for steamboats! No need for trial and error.

5 reasons to say no: 1. We tried 4 kinds of broth, including their signature pork bone broth, there's really nothing to rave about and not even near delicious. 2. Pricey, but overall standard of the restaurant does not justify the price tag. Each individual broth is charged approximately $8, our 4 slices of wagyu beef cost approx $56, a plate of low quality beef tripe was $15, so on and so forth, you judge. 3. Their wild bamboo which was not handled correctly, it was merely soaking of dried wild bamboo and serve. It should not be done this way. It looks gross. 4. Service is mediocre, some of them were helpful and smiley, there was one that used eye power when we were struggling to refill drinks for one another across the table. Some of us were down with flu, hence we wanted to have steamboat with separated pots but when the server walked around to help us cook the meatballs and shrimp paste, the same utensils were used for all pots. Sigh. 5. The restaurant can be reaaaaaallllyyyyy noisy and uncomfortable to dine at when there are noisy crowds seated beside you. The restaurant space is too small and perhaps the ceiling is not high enough, and there's not sufficient "space" given for the sound to travel. It was piercing seated next to two tables that were having loud discussions and laughters. I had to raise my voice in order to get communication going on my table. Horrifying. And if you need one more reason not to go, here it is: Location is inconvenient unless you drive, which I did and thankfully there was a free valet service.

Situated at Marina Bay Sands, this steamboat could easily be more pricey than HDL, but its broth and ingredients varieties, needless to say their service is nowhere on par. So it's a No.

Needless to say, pricey, and supposedly comes with a package of: good and EXTRA service, fresh ingredients, long queues, and great broths. I have come to a point whereby im sick of HDL, maybe too much of it, but this is still a good place for steamboat if I couldn't find a seat at Beauty in the Pot or if the mentioned suffered a fall in standards. Tomato soup, and shrimp paste is recommended.
