But did you know other than these secret hacks, there are also some secret cheat code phases that you can use at Haidilao Hot Pot to score yourself some freebies?
In their latest YouTube video, two Singaporean influencers with over 89, 000 subscribers on their YouTube channel BenRanAway, were seen trying out these Haidilao secret cheat code phrases that have been going viral on TikTok.
1. Free comb
To get a free comb, all you need to say to the staff serving you is:
If you’re feeling a little cold and you like to be provided with a blanket to keep you warm, feel free to let the servers know that you’re cold!
However, you might want to keep in mind that you won’t be able to take the blanket home with you because it’s not free!
3. Fried Hand-Pulled Noodles
If you are feeling snackish, you can try ordering the fried hand-pulled noodles. While it is not available on the menu, you can always request it from the server!
Once again, do note that the fried hand-pulled noodles ain’t free too. It’s $4.00 if you are keen to give it a try.
4. Free Fairy Wand
The phrase to say if you would like to bag home a free plastic wand which channels sailor wand vibes is 小仙女来吃火锅了 (Little Fairy is here to have hotpot).
According to online reviews, you’ll be getting either a pink or blue wand, and is subject to availability.
5. Free watermelon
If you’re a fan of HaiDiLao’s sweet watermelon, all you have to the server is say, 你的西瓜很甜 (Your watermelon is very sweet) in order to get free watermelon.
You can bring the watermelons home too!
According to netizens who have tried this cheat code, this cheat code also works for other fruits too. Simply replacing the word “西瓜” (watermelon) with any other fruits from HaiDiLao Hot Pot will do the trick.
6. Free Birthday Cake
If you have been visiting HaiDiLao Hot Pot a lot, you’d probably also know that the Chinese hot pot chain is quite big on birthday celebrations, and they will usually go all out to make your birthday celebration a really memorable and unforgettable one.
So, to receive a birthday gift from HaiDiLao, simply tell the server 我朋友今天生日 (It’s my friend’s birthday today).

Bag home one of HaiDiLao’s soup packs when you say 你的汤底好好喝 (your soup is very delicious).
You can even choose the soup base that you like!
