We had the corn and Mala soup as steamboat base. Corn soup is very good but Mala is just so so. Clean environment, and one of the non-halal options at Tanah rata, food is slightly pricy compared to other stores in the area. Overall, a...little overpriced but ingredients are fresh and good variety of options of u go for couple set.More

First steamboat but not first Hotpot which I believe they are the same. Hotpots I had in China were a lot better but you can't come to CH and not eat Steamboat. The place was clean, the price was affordable and the Seafood platter we...had was good.More

Search online and found this place. Ordered corn and tomato soup, pretty tasteless. Food wise also not fresh. Half Port charged RM11. 90, so if you want a mix port, you need to pay for another extra RM23.80. There are much better alternatives nearby.

Spotted this restaurant as it is just shoplot behind the Inn we stayed and decided to give it a try. Price on menu is the exact charge. We ordered a 2pax grilled hotpot, 1 vege, 3 types mushrooms and 4 flavours marinated meat. Quite disappointing...to the portion and variety served. However the meat are well marinated. Perhaps should try the soup pot and it serves more variety.More

The restaurant location is perfect, being on a second floor, you can watch some hills and sunset over a quiet peaceful meal. The steamboat is offered at a reasonable price. You have a choice of soup base, the sweet corn and Tom yum were what...we selected. The corn soup is really delicious! The meat and vegetable that comes in a set meal is well prepared and enticing. Service is great too. Oh, don’t forget the sauces they prepared, sooo delicious!More

We came here for our first steamboat experience and it didn’t disappoint! Our waitress was lovely and explained the menu to us. We got the RM49 steamboat for 2 which had some seafood and pork and vegetables. Great value as we couldn’t even finish it,...it was so much food!More

Generally disappointed with the food and service. Were somehow misled into thinking that i would be getting fresh produce from the highlands. Family friends were commenting of some stale veges with worms! The only thing that compensate the experience were my family and friends. Nothing...spectacular. I am being nice with the average.More

As a regular visitor to Cameron Highlands, how could I have missed this steamboat until a friend told me! To begin with It is located on the 1st Floor of a rather shopping arcade.. that's probably why. For the price that we paid for a...set of steamboat for 2 persons and a set of grill for 2 persons, I have no complaint as the food was fresh, we paid extra for the corn shop and it was good and even come with refill. Moreover it was raining and cold, it was a perfect steamboat. In spite of some negative reviews, the manager was actually a very nice and friendly guy, he even asked us - are you sure you need 2 sets and you can finish the food.. come on this guy think we can't pay!!! No he is just telling us the helping in a set for 2 is huge and it is true.. plenty of food. If you are holidaying in Cameron Highlands and prefer to have steamboat in your accommodation, C Buddys even have delivery sets that comes complete with the steamboat pot and cooking gas .. just call them and it will be delivered. Probably the down side is the sauce plates should be bigger.... will be back on my next CH trip.More

I chose this place as it was located very close to my place of stay. We had dinner for 3 here..Overall i would recommend this place among the steam boats restaurants in Tanah Rata as there are not many around compared to Brinchang. For a...better experience in dining for steam boats, my preference would be in Brinchang. Anyway the food served here was fresh and the boss/manager was exceptionally nice.More

Family of 4. Ordered the set for two but added 4 more plates of add-ons. Note that the price for soup is charged separately. 2 soups = charged 2 items. Overall a good place for hot dinner in a cold environment
