Qimin Hot Pot Restaurant by Hot Dog Decor Interior Design, Shanghai – China

March 7th, 2015 by retail design blog

A restaurant serving one of China’s favourite cuisines – the hot pot. Qimin offers fresh, locally-produced organic vegetables and meats. The concept is to create a market-place atmosphere where diners can see the raw food being prepared as well as interact with the cooks. The organic food is completed with the use of locally-sourced and repurposed materials such as reclaimed wooded beams for the front façade, hexagonal floor tiles cut from old tiles, repurposed floor boards for the counter tops and the use of local granite.


The restaurant is divided into 3 distinct sections:
1. The main seating revolves around the open kitchen. Diners are seated on stools facing the fresh food display and cooking staff.
2. Banquette seating along one side for larger groups.
3. A grill bar with a semi-enclosed area for drinkers who prefer a bit more privacy
