We finally got to try the legendary海底捞 hotpot! The nation-wide chain is famous for its impeccable services, which include manicures for lady customers waiting in line.  We have yet to experience it as we tried its catering service this time. 
Two waiters showed up with out food and set everything up 30 mins prior to our meal time.  They brought everything.  And when I said everything I meant EVERYTHING!  Apart from all the pots and pans and eating utensils they even had hair scrunchies for the ladies! 
I have to say the food was average but everything looked fresh and clean.  We felt very looked after as the waiters did everything for us.  He was really knowledgeable when it came to which dipping sauce to have and his attention to details was remarkable.  He remembered when food had gone in the pot and was able to tell us whether a certain item was cooked.  He was even a noodle pulling expert! 
Given the reasonable prices (we ordered way too much food with lots of seafood items) and it came to less than RMB200 a head we will definitely do it again.
