Brilliant way of enjoying the whole eating experience by cooking it all yourself in a charcoal steamboat on the table! Good food and good fun!

They offer a set menu with a stock that brews as you cook your selection of meats from squid to liver to chicken, and dim sung and other tasty traditional Asian treats.

Once you have eaten all the different food the broth left over is naturally delicious, but don't be shy about adding the extra fried garlic, trust me it's a good addition.

It's 50Ringit for a couple, and with water and Chinese tea it came to 60. But the more people you have , the more food they give you and it gets more economical but at that price, you can't go wrong!

Definitely an experience worth trying during your trip to Georgetown, Penang!

Accidentally found this place when we first visited Penang.Having traditional hot pot in a no air-con restaurant and the outside temperature was still in the mid 30s centigrade was an experience hard to forget.We had fish head hotpot this time and the food was still good and fresh.If you like to sweat and eat at the same time,this is the place to come.

We enjoy steamboat and this restaurant is very popular with local families, so that's a good indication. We are used to having to book in advance for a steamboat, but here you can walk in off the street.
Their soup stock is tasty and comes with plenty of wombok and they keep refilling it.
We chose '2 plates' for 50 RM and it comes with fish, squid, crab, fishballs, wantons, tofu, pork, pig liver. We would have liked more vegetables.
Service is attentive and helpful.
Jl Kimberley has lots of cafes and hawker stalls to try.
