Chinese New Year Set Menu

My family had a pleasant experience with Lung Lok Tea House last Chinese New Year trying out their dim sum menu. This year we decided to go for a set menu instead.
 
 At $998++ per table, it would work out to be $117 per pax. The menu looked wholesome and we were prepared to fork out the money to try this menu.
 
 1. Sound of Firecrackers Prosperity Crab Yu Sheng
 The Yu Sheng was served with crab meat and fried salmon skin instead of the unhealthy fried crackers. The sauces embedded in the Yu Sheng were also different from the traditional kind, it was less sweet and more savoury. It's a new kind of yu sheng taste to me. The freshly friend salmon skin was a good treat, as they were crispy and added a good crunchy into every mouthful of yu sheng!
 
 2. Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Pumpkin
 Served individually in a pumpkin, this shark's fin had a subtle taste of pumpkin with every sip. There were huge chunks of sharks fin in the pumpkin and it was very flavourful even without the pepper or vinegar.
 
 3. Braised 6-head abalone with fish maw and seasonal vegetables
 The abalones were pletntiful, the vegetables though mostly stems were juicy and not too oily. The fish maw was soft and delightful to chew on.
 
 4. Deep Fried Prawns with Golden Sauce served on Lettuce
 This was my favourite of the dishes. A crispy exterior of salted egg batter, over a very fresh and crunchy prawn that was pipping hot! I love everything with salted egg on it and having it fried with prawns just makes this a winner for me!
 
 5. Teochew-style soya duck
 Teochew-style soya duckThis duck was a lot tougher than expected. It was cooked more in a way that they would cook a goose. I can imagine that this would go well with "kong bak pau" bread. The fatty skin was hard to separate from the meat itself. As the meat was quite tough, they were thinly sliced.
 
 6. Hong-Kong style steamed marble Gorby
 The fish was very fresh and the sauce was sweet and cooked to perfection. Drowning my bite sized fish portions with the sauce did not encourage me to feel thirsty, something that normally happens at other eateries. I can tell that their sauce isn't overly sweet or heavily ladden with MSG because of this.
 
 7. Dried Scallop BBQ Goose Sauce with Fried Rice in Lotus Leaf
 The most "normal" of the dishes, with the other dishes setting a high standard for the food here, this dish was just too "normal". It tasted like any kind of steamed fried rice in lotus leaf. There were chunks of dried scallops everywhere in this dish, just wished that they had added some mushrooms in there too.
 
 8. Double-boiled American Ginseng with Red Dates
 I didn't quite like this, it was quite bitter and Tung Lok did their best by adding as much rock sugar as they could to offset the bitterness. Maybe it's because I don't like ginseng, but this just tasted strange to me. It was also served cold.
 
 I love their porridge here, served generously with alot of cubed century egg. It's one of the few porridges that I would love to eat!

Average food, disappointing service

Made a reservation on mother's day and brought my whole family there to dine during lunchtime. Took us at least 10mins to be in the standing reservation queue to wait for our turn to be served and then seated. Many others were waiting too and there were no service staff nor managers to inform the reason for the long wait. After we were seated, we waited for at least 15mins and still couldn't find a server to take food orders at our corner where we were facing the mirrors. So i had to stand up and walk to ask if there is anyone there to serve us. i believe there were two different types of staffs. One to take orders and one type to serve food and drinks. The one who took orders from me repeated what i had ordered from the menu but when the dish was served out, it wasnt exactly what i had requested at all. The old lady who served us the food noticed that i was upset and tried to calm me down. She was very nice. I believe the restaurant had pretty short of staff on that day but yes service is definitely disappointing. Food was definitely not up to standard at all. The only thing my family enjoyed was the baked bbq bun that was similar to tim ho wan's. We had omly ordered dim sum and one noodle plate. Will never bring my family back again to this place. At least crystal jade and wah lol serves way more quality standard and had good service.

I had tried numerous restaurant's discount vouchers from all the different platform's provider. Usually I love to check on the reviews before I purchase any of the voucher.  Some reviews were good, but after I tried & I feel the food or services was so so or either horrible.. As for Tung Lok Teahouse, I tried to search for reviews before I buy the voucher but I can't find any review at all. I wanted to give it a shot, so I paid a $80 to get $160 worth of voucher.. I'm quite sceptical before I went for the dinner at Tung Lok Teahouse this evening. Especially after I knew Tung Lok Teahouse previously was Zhou's Kitchen, which I think their food was not really fantastic.  Surprisingly, their food turn out to be not too bad.  ! I love the soup with sea whelk($32) it's sweet & the meats were tender,  deep fried crispy duck($28) was something special!  Their service is good! I would love to say thanks to Cindy for your attentive services.  I only managed to take the crisp-fried taro strip picture.
