You&I Premium Suki Buffet is a popular chain-brand hot pot restaurant in Bangkok, so you’ll find their branches at numerous landmarks in the city. That makes it an easy choice for tourists who crave a good quality hot pot out of the blue.

Here, you get plenty of options for your hot pot soup base: pork bone soup, beef soup, mala soup, noodle soup, and more. However, their biggest highlight is their excellent selection of dipping sauces which complement their numerous meat offerings.

The biggest hitters are the mozzarella cheese truffle dip for shrimp truffle and bacon, deep melted cheese dip for Carara Wagyu beef, and miso crab dip for Angus brisket. 

Popular pairings aside, there are a lot more meat, seafood, and noodle inclusions to try.

Pro Tip: 

It’s worth noting that they give each guest separate pots, so it’s great for groups with different flavor and soup preferences. However, they have small pots, so it might not be the best option for long hot pot sessions since the broth will get oily fast.

The place to go if you want a wide variety of soup bases to choose from. Fu Fu Taiwanese Shabu is a hot pot spot in Bangkok well-known for its 6 soup bases: Taiwanese-style, Chinese medicinal, shiitake, black pepper, tom yum, and mala soup.

That makes it ideal for foodies who enjoy sampling various flavors and hot pot combinations. Their selection of hot pot inclusions is nothing to scoff at as well since it consists of vegetable, meat, and seafood ingredients sourced from numerous countries.

Think Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, China, Korea, Australia, and Argentina. Aside from that, they have interesting dessert options like unlimited häagen-dazs ice cream and pancakes which you can self-cook at a designated pancake-cooking area.

Pro Tip: 

This restaurant has recently switched to a cashless payment system, so you can no longer pay with cash.

Kagonoya serves traditional Japanese-style shabu, so it’s a great option for foodies who prefer a more casual hot pot experience in Bangkok. That means their menu centers around Japanese vegetables and various meat ingredients.

In fact, their hot pot inclusions consist only of premium beef cuts like Australian Angus, Japanese Wagyu, Kurobuta pork, and US short plate beef. Aside from that, they also have regular pork cuts, bacon, and their signature Kagonoya beef. 

But that’s not all because you can also enjoy a lot of Japanese-style dishes on the side like sushi, sushi rolls, sashimi, tempura, and ramen. Also, there are 4 options for the soup base: Kyoto soba, kelp, tonkotsu, and sukiyaki dashi stock.

Pro Tip: 

Kagonoya has plenty of branches all over Bangkok, but some can be inconsistent, so we suggest sticking to the ones we listed above.

For hardcore Chinese mala hot pot fans, this restaurant in Bangkok is a solid pick that won’t disappoint. For one, it’s decked out with Chinese-style decors and offers up to 5 soup bases, so it’s spot on when it comes to atmosphere and variety.

This includes mala, tonkotsu, pumpkin, tomato, and dashi black soup. You also get 6 savory dipping sauces that complement their numerous hot pot inclusions, from the Kurobuta pork to the Australian Angus, Thai beef, duck, seafood, and veggies.

We are particularly fond of their salty and sour original sauce which pairs well with all the meat and vegetable options. The restaurant also has a tea and herb bar for guests wanting oriental-style drinks.

Pro Tip: 

A notable feature of this restaurant is that it allows guests to bring pet dogs, but it’s only permitted at three specific indoor tables. Otherwise, you can go for the outdoor dining area which is fully accessible for guests with pets.

Akiyoshi is a unique Japanese restaurant where food lovers can enjoy the soupy and saucy experience that traditional shabu and sukiyaki offer in one place. In fact, it’s particularly well-known for its 3 signature shabu soup bases and 2 sukiyaki sauces.

However, its biggest highlight is its packed shabu buffet sets. These consist of Kurobuta pork, Japanese Wagyu, Australian Wagyu, squid, smoked sausage, salmon, river prawns, mussels, crab sticks, chicken, bacon, veggies, noodles, drinks, and desserts.

If you go for their special platinum buffet set, you even get sushi rolls, sashimi, noodle bowls, tempura, pork tonkotsu, donburi, and numerous appetizers. This stacked set is ideal for tourists having a hot pot in Bangkok with friends and family.

Pro Tip: 

Keep in mind that they only allow one type of buffet per table. If you’re visiting with a small group with different hot pot preferences, booking separate tables is a must.

This restaurant is a solid pick if you’re looking for a hot pot spot in Bangkok that makes you feel like you’re in Japan. From the moment you see the restaurant building, expect to be welcomed by traditional decor, wall-mounted katanas, and samurai armor.

They even have tatami private rooms which adds to the Japanese vibes. Best of all, they don’t mess around when it comes to their shabu menu which includes cuts like A5 Sendai and Matsusaka Wagyu, Iberian pork bellota, and Hokkaido tokachi herb gyu.

It comes with their signature soup base, kishimen noodles, 3 dipping sauces, and assorted veggies. And if you want to have a more intimate conversation or business, their private dining room should get you going. 

Pro Tip: 

Reservation is a must to dine in Katana since they don’t accept walk-in guests. But it should be all worth it given the unparalleled service this one brings.

Peak Shabu has a special birthday promotion, so it’s best to visit during your special day. If you have at least 4 people, the celebrant gets a 50% discount while the others get 5% off.

If you’re eating out with a group, you can’t go wrong with Shabu Yorokobu. It’s a great place that offers packed and value-for-your-money buffet sets that are perfect for families and friends looking for a good hot pot in Bangkok.

Their massive menu consists of their signature Yorokobu beef, Kurobuta pork, A5 Wagyu, sushi, sashimi, lamb, seafood, yakitori, vegetable, and beef box sets. It’s a great selection that pairs nicely with their special sesame, ponzu, and wasabi sauces.

Moreover, they let you choose between 6 soup bases: sukiyaki, tomato, milk corn, dashi, mala, and crab congee soup. Our team’s favorite is the crab congee soup which is a smooth and sweet flavored broth with chunks of fresh crab meat.

Pro Tip: 

Their buffet menu isn’t available for solo guests, so be sure to bring your family or friends with you if you want to try them. Otherwise, you’re stuck with their a la carte menu which we think isn’t a solid value-for-your-money option.
