    Sri Maju Steamboat has been a popular place for a piping hot serving of steamboat for two reasons - extremely fresh seafood and its delicious broth.

    Yun Man Steamboat Chinese DishesNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Yun Man Steamboat Chinese Dishes is indeed a long name for a restaurant. But all that glory is not for nothing as it is one of the most fully occupied steamboat restaurants in Kota Kinabalu. Even with the place looking as if it's about to fall apart anytime, there are still an abundance of customers queuing on a daily basis. After all, they offer a pretty generous selection of steamboat-able ingredients, along with ready made dishes such as the chicken wings, yong tao foo and many more. Desserts are also available - though it's only ice cream. All and all, it's a pretty damn good place. 


    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A lot of people in a rather cramp space.

    Best with

    Tea.

    Price

    RM30.00 to RM60.00

    Station 13 Xiao Tao Yuan

    Station 13 Xiao Tao Yuan is a Taiwan inspired steamboat restaurant. Well, it's more of a shabu-shabu place but with a large pot in the middle instead of an individual pot for all. Anyway, what is great about this place is the freshness of the pork slices, along with the variety of cuts available. Vegetables such as tofu and greens are fairly fresh, with the soup being another one of the attracting attributes. 

    Tips

    Go for their seafood!

    Things to expect

    A rather small dining place with air-con.

    Best with

    Cold soft drinks or tea.

    Price

    RM40.00 to RM60.00

Well then, look no further as Steamboat Bakar Kota Kinabalu might just fit your criteria. It uses the same concept as Thai BBQ, where the top is meant for grilling and at the bottom, soup.
