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.

Poor service, average food, waste of time and money!

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.

Ate lunch weekend buffet, spent about $38 nett per pax. Must try their Salmon Sashimi, Crispy Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk and Sautéed Sliced Beef with Black Bean Sauce. Each plate of sashimi fresh, thick and chewy. One plate should worth at least $20 in cold storage so it's quite easy to eat back your money's worth.

Overall each dish was pretty well executed; for a buffet, the quality of food matches or even exceeds normal restaurant standard.

decent for the price lunch buffet

decent-for-the-price à la carte buffet atop orchard central. this is pretty alright chinese food dished up as much as you like, whenever you like (while they're serving lunch, of course) – and at this meal we went through the entire menu at least once.   nothing really stood out enough for me to recall it to you – but we did have perhaps six or seven servings of the salmon sashimi, which was seafood-fresh and tender – and perhaps the best part of the meal.   the chinese food I would liken to better-than-catering, served hot and quickly (admirable considering the crowds they were serving), and good for crowds (and plenty cheap for a gluttonous sunday lunch).
