Lunch over dinner

This place is definitely good for big groups to lunch or dinner together. I have been here for quite a few occasion, and therefore I have tried both their lunch and dinner buffet. Personally, I prefer the lunch buffet as it comes with dim sum (I love dim sum). Though the dinner offered a lot more dishes, but it just didn't appeal to me. One of their famous dish is the chill crab which I find it just average. But I like their crispy fish skin with salted egg, super yummy!

Dear Friends, for your own good.. If you were expecting super good food on the 11th floor of OC, Tung Lok is definitely NOT the restaurant to go.

Manager was really friendly and warm but staff friendliness vary. Speed of service was pretty fast initially (because we reached first) until the venue got filled up with other people.

EVERYTHING (except fried fish skin with salted egg yoke) on the menu did not meet expectations. But I didnt pay $38.80++ for fried fish skin!

Chilli crab sauce was off in consistency (too thick)
Sharkfin and fish maw soup was a tad too thick
Mussels were cooked with a relatively wierd sauce (thai chilli with garlic i think)
Salmon sashimi was varying in freshness
Herbal prawns didnt have the taste of herbs!?
Even the vegtables dont taste good.. (I feel so embaressed saying this.)
XO Fried Carrot cake was too oily
Fried Rice was too oily
The peking dumpling in chilli sauce has thick skin and very little meat.
And so on...

The worst dishes were:
The only beef dish: stir fried with with bbq sauce but the consistency of the sauce was too thick and the meat was not fresh.
Kou shui ji: steam chicken with some mala sauce topic tasted disgusting

The surprising thing is.. they were full house all the time!? Really? I hope they weren't returning customers?

In my opinion, it is time Tung Lok's management redo the menu and reflect on the taste or change their Head Chef. My best guess was that the chef got lazy. The local kopitiam tze char chef can really do much better then TUNG LOK and cost half as much... (I want my money backT_T)Too bad, they have 2 words "Tung Lok" on their signboard so the expectations were UP THERE...

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.
