While there are a ton of restaurants to choose from, a go-to dining option that’ll always warm the heart and tummy is a good ol’ hotpot.

Instead of sharing space with the rest of the crowd, enjoy your birthday like royalty at these hotpot restaurants in Singapore that have spacious private dining rooms for booking – all for free!
