Things are getting hot over in Knightsbridge, as new Northern Chinese hot pot restaurant Hot May is now open. Founded by Joseph Nie, Hot May offers an authentic hot pot experience with a bit of added glam – the restaurant is inside a three-storey townhouse, which has been decked out with bespoke wallpaper, leather booths, green glass and brass accents.

Each diner gets their own dedicated burner to keep the hot pot at the right temperature, with six-hour clear chicken, vegetable or oxtail broths on offer. You can then choose from the likes of wagyu beef, Scottish Highland beef, king fish, seabass, seafood fishcakes, langoustines, abalaone, tofu, vegetables and noodles to cook in your broth, with Hot May Master sauce, beef sauce and seafood sauce for dipping on the side.

There’s also a sashimi selection should you want some cold starters, with fancy options like pacific geoduck clams and lobster on there. And if you’d rather someone else choose for you, there’s Masterclass tasting menu that covers the hot pot experience plus a glass of prosecco.
