Restaurant Harbour Steamboat is located in Sri Petaling, same row with the New Restaurant Ipoh Chicken Rice. I walked past this row of shops around 9pm during one of the weekdays and noticed how packed this place was from the outside. Feeling curious and how can I missed out such popular place!? So, I have made a point to return.

Don't attempt to walk in without a prior reservation or you might end up waiting outside for hours. Even during the weekdays, these waiting chairs are filled with customers waiting to be seated.

The restaurant is fully air-conditioned and messy graffiti walls filled with all kinds of marker messages and drawings one could think of.

Like any other Hong Kong steamboat, you'll have a variety of sauces. In here, you have the dried shrimp chili paste, fermented bean curd sauce, chili sauce and cilantro.

And you are supposed to concoct your own sauces, depending on how spicy, sour, salty you like it to be.

The concocted special sauce were actually pretty good!

One of the selling point of this restaurant is probably the variety of soup-based offered. Ranging from Macau pork soup (RM 20), herbal soup (RM 15), century egg soup (RM 10), sugar cane soup (RM 10), Teow Chew soup (RM 12), papaya fungus soup (RM 10), white pepper soup (RM 15), tom yam soup (RM 12) and clay pot lamb (RM 30). We had the Macau pork soup and papaya fungus soup within a pot for RM 30 in total.

There isn't any per head set menus and everything is ala-carte from all the balls to vegetables. We had some prawn wantan (RM 10), dumpling (RM 12), mushroom pork ball (RM 8), garoupa fish slice (RM 10), Tong-Hou vegetables (RM 5) and Japanese udon noodles (RM 5).

Never failed to have fish maw (RM 12) for steamboat.

And of course, lamb slice (RM 15) and pork slice (RM 10), without doubt fresh and tender.

Dipping a slice of meat into the hot boiling broth, and swish it back and forth. The worst thing that can happen is to ruin a potentially good thing by overcooking it.

Don't mind paying extra for the soup but the downside was, they are all going to taste almost the same since the subsequent refills are all from the same clear soup-based that dilutes it further.

Verdict: Special concocted sauce, freshness of the ingredients and the wide variety of soup-based definitely warm the hearts of their ever-packed line of customers. Expensive though!

    Caroline, yeah it's pretty interesting at first but after awhile, they just taste almost the same since they're using the same clear soup.

    Instead, you might want to look at ...By far, one of my favorite in terms of taste and price ;)

    This restaurant is the worst steamboat I have ever taste. Price is expensive and soup based are so so only.
    As describe here, the subsequent soup are all same - clear soup.
    Their items is actually not much different from outside steamboat, but price is a lot different.
    Will never back to this place even they offer it for free.
