Serving seafood since 1946, this well-established Chinese restaurant has branched out from its original beachfront location at Bedok to a number of restaurants. The black pepper crab and chilli crab are evergreen favourites, and the restaurant even offers de-shelling services for its crab dishes.

BEST CHILLI CRAB (imo)

VISIT http://wp.me/p3qMho-5L FOR MORE PICS + FULL REVIEW!

First up: Drunken prawns in a herbal soup broth. The warm herbal broth was delicious, especially on a cold night. I strongly recommend this to any first-time diners to Long Beach!

Stir-fried beef: We ordered this mainly for the brother, who refuses to eat the chilli crab because it is "too spicy". He literally had the entire plate to himself, accompanied with a half-bowl of rice. But who goes to a seafood restaurant to eat beef? Besides, judging by the photos, there was not much beef, and it set us back a whopping $16! I would have much rather spent it on thirty-two man tous...

And finally, the star of the meal, featured on every table in the restaurant. I absolutely loved the chilli gravy and literally shovelled spoon-fulls of it into my mouth! It had a sweet and eggy texture to it and was only mildly spicy, not potent enough to send me into hysterics as I do when my tongue is numbed by spiciness. I am not kidding when I say that everyone has to try this.

Last but not least, the Ee fu noodles. It was all right, albeit a bit too oily. The noodles were delicious! They were unlike other ee fu noodles that I have tried before. The noodles were like a hybrid of the Chinese hor fun and the Thai rice noodles. I really love ee fu noodles and this is a good contender for one of the better ee fu noodles I've had. If only it was not so oily!

The total bill was about $130, but I guess an occasional treat is fine. :-) There is nothing wrong with Long Beach, but it may just be a little more expensive as compared to other restaurants offering crabs in the east side. However, Long Beach does serve up a pretty mean chilli crab and is the best rendition I've had so far. PLS GO TRY IT.

with mother's day last month, father's day this weekend, and it being the school holidays, we have been hopping around the island trying various seafood restaurants and indulging in crabs.

super disappointed with long beach's seafood at dempsey. somehow i think the outlet at east coast is better. the chilli crabs we had didn't seem very fresh, and the sauce was all watery. black pepper crab was probably the star of the night for us.

have had better. it seems like its targeting more for tourists and those chi-chi crowd looking to entertain. service was inattentive to say the least. really hope they improve as it's the nearest seafood place to my place. food quality is always most important!

invited for dinner to long beach earlier.
Service is so so, but can understand as its extremely difficult to employ service staff in Singapore due to our AMAZING 'foreign talent" policy.

crispy duck, yes its crispy till whole duck taste like 100 days air dried meat, so dry and tough!


fish soup, yes it taste good but cost $80, u decide.

sharkfins with scamble eggs,cost $60 for 6 diners. would said u better off buying 10 eggs that cost $2.50 and have it scamble at home. Seriously find no sharkfins in the dish, maybe its owners is in PRO sharkfins protection program.

here come the worst!!! for a restaurant that pride itself with seafood and crab.

The crab is pathetic!! had both chilli and salted eggs. its crab meat is not firm at all and its claw meat is like a super thin model wearing a XXXXL t shirt!
can u imagined that.

complain to the manager, his reply is this " this few months crab supply they received is of bad quality and they cant control the situation!!!

OMG. if u got no good crab to sell then dont sell. really taking its customers for a ride.
No wonder all the diners in the restaurant on a sat night has nothing but a unhappy, unsatisfy look and most look worse when its bill is presented.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
