Founded in 1994, Hai Di Lao owns over 140 restaurants in China, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, Japan and the United States. The popular Chinese hotpot chain is best known for its impeccable service and quality of food. Due to its immense popularity amongst hotpot lovers in Singapore, an hour’s wait for a table during dinnertime is nothing unusual (pro tip: do make a reservation before heading down). To ease your boredom during the long wait, Hai Di Lao provides guests with complimentary manicure services, unlimited snacks and card games!

At an extra charge of $4 per pax, guests can gain access to Hai Di Lao’s condiment counter. It offers 30 different types of condiments and free flow fruits.

Hai Di Lao has recently partnered with FOMO Pay to adopt WeChat Pay across its 4 outlets in Singapore. Using WeChat Pay, Chinese consumers are able to complete their transaction within seconds and removes the hassle of dealing with exchange rates when handling cash. The hotpot chain is the latest addition to the increasing number of Singapore retailers that aim to lure Chinese consumers to spend in their stores.

Concurrently, Hai Di Lao worked with FOMO Pay to launch a WeChat red packet event for their customers. After settling their bill via WeChat, each customer could redeem up to 2 red packets on WeChat. These red packets contain different cash prizes, up to RMB 888. Digital posters for the event were shared on Facebook and placed at the shop front of each outlet to build hype.
