Very expensive. If you're not about that Bougie life, then this place is definitely not for you. The difference between this hot pot place and another is 1) the ambiance 2) dancing noodles 3) the pot is built in the table and 4) service.
For the money you are paying here, you are not buying the food, you are paying for the fact that you can order from an iPad, that there is lotion and mouth wash in the bathrooms, that there is a man that personally hand tears all of your noodles while dancing in white, and that there is a personal trolley for each table station if you need to change plates or add water. And finally, you are paying for your own soup base and personalized soup pot!
That is why I have a hate love relationship with Hai Di Lao.
Be sure to make reservations. Also, they don't have a registrar, so unless you're going to tip generously, be sure to bring change!
