Founded in 2009, JPOT offers the best of Individual Hotpot dining, with 7 different soup bases, a clean and comfortable ambience, although much of their presentation is copied from other successful hotpot brands.

Ambience at JPOT is good, with bright lighting, well ventilated interior, and spacious furniture. Tables are set for individual hotpots, and their food presentation is styled after China Hai Di Lao Huo Guo. Ordering is done through tablets are each table.

JPOT is largely self-service, although food orders and bills are presented by staff. I also noticed that staff are quite efficient are clearing away empty / dirty plates. Otherwise, there isn't much interaction. Update: I have revised the rating for the service, and scored it much lower, as I discovered through visits that their service receovery is extremely poor. Equipment throughout the restaurant is not always functioning, leading to diner frustration. Not only is there no apology or service recovery, but staff take a very long time to react to diners experiencing frustration. This creates an unpleasant memory, ensuring that diners will not return again.

There is a good range and variety of food at JPOT. Besides the 7 varieties of soup base, there is almost 90 items on the menu, ranging from meat to seafood to vegetables and even dim sum. However, prices at JPOT are quite expensive, as it's not a buffet but ala-carte, amounting to about SGD $25 and above per person. And the quantity provided isn't much either.

Several daily offers on drinks, as well as late night dining discounts make it slightly more worthwhile to dine here.

The Silky Porridge base is simple, but fragrant, flavourful and thick. The Bak Kut Teh base is peppery but not too overwhelming, and has cloves of garlic and a pork rib within. The Fish Head Soup is lovely and milky, with nice chunks of fresh fish within. The JPOT Superior Broth is rich in taste despite its thin appearance, but got a little too salty near the end.

I find that the quantity of food is quite little for the high price, making this not so value for money. But the ingredients are fresh, and well presented, copied from the presentation style of China Hai Di Lao Huo Guo.
