The restaurant was formerly known as Long Jiang Restaurant which used to be located inside the now defunct Crown Prince Hotel, the hotel I stayed in when I first visited Singapore as a tourist. It has since reopened at Commonwealth, with the same chef bringing back his signature dishes, along with modern fusion dishes.

I tried 6 items. Follow the link to find out how they tasted!

I have been spammed with the buffet offer ($25) of Long Jiang Seafood for a long while and decided to pay this place a visit recently to see what this place is about.

Located in a makeshift building, expect a simple dining setting with no-frills, but the food is definitely worth shouting about.

The buffet is broken up into two sections - a set of items where one can order just once and a set of items where there can be unlimited orders.

For the limited orders, we had the whole abalone, drunken chicken, smoked duck and shark fin's soup. This by itself is already worth the money you are paying. The small whole abalone had a good flavourful bite with a strong seawater after taste.

Another limited item that has to be tried is the soft shell crab. A whole crab is covered with pork floss, which makes the entire dish a little more sweet and not as gooey as it usually is.

Do order the scallops as well - bouncy and light - paired with celery.

From the unlimited items menu, worth trying is the pork belly, which is a little high on msg and hence creates a slightly dry flavour but the sliced meat still does a good job of melting in the mouth.

The fried fish is also quite good, with a nice crispy batter in which one can taste the fresh oil.

Meanwhile, the kung pao chicken was also executed well with a good level of saltiness and sweetness.

Finally, end with the fried rice, which has a strong egg after-taste.

Service is quite efficient. The service staff were friendly. Beware though of hidden charges such as peanuts ($1 per person) and towels ($2 per person).
