Tung Lok Seafood Ala Carte Buffet

The Chilli crab would definitely steal the limelight! It's exotic, unique, and obviously different from all the other chilli crabs I've tried. The sauce had a tangy lemony taste to it, and Tung Lok has successfully mixed the spiciness and sour taste of the lemon to come to a perfect balance and create their signature dish! Coupled with the fried mantou, it was absolutely divine. 

Most other dishes tasted average, with the exception of braised sharks' fin with fish maw, crispy fish skin with salted egg yolk, fresh sashimi, cereal prawns and sauteed sliced beef with black pepper sauce.

Service was prompt (probably because we were the first few families there) and atmosphere was nice.

Worse than average crab in a decent location

Location:
As good as it gets, right above Somerset MRT and with a good view on both sides. Ask for a window table!

Food:
The crab tasted off, fishy and with a little bitterness. The oil used for the frying smelt faintly like stale sweat. Shellfish was a little bitter and shrivelled, although others enjoyed it very much. The fried rice was a mass of suspended oil, without much taste otherwise. Of course, a seafood dinner is not supposed to be light and healthy but too much oil spoils the appetite.

All dishes are done much better elsewhere, even close by.

Price and ambience:
Seems to be 20-40% pricier than the competition (Jumbo, Red House, etc. not to mention Owen's) but you can get good deals with various cards. Quite loud and packed on a Friday night. Service was very slow - 46 minutes to bring the crab - but friendly and efficient otherwise, although several waitresses did not speak English.

There are better places for a seafood dinner, if the food is what you are after (Owen's would be my pick, especially for clams). Even if you want a view, there's always the East Coast. We won't be back, but I don't think we are the target market.

Poor service, overpriced buffet. We paid $70+ per pax and dishes were average. Not worth that price. Eg the deep fried seabass (油浸金目鲈) was 4pc of fried fin and tail, not whole fish. Waiting extremely long for dishes to be served. The entire dinner took 2h for the 4 of us and for the first 4 dishes, we waited 40 min. There were just soup, appetisers stuff. There were many moments we were just sitting ard waiting. When we chased them, captain smilingly said we were in hurry ("你们赶时间”). The food and service were not worth even for their lower end buffet of $40+ per pax.
