Our concierge recommended this restaurant. It did not disappoint. Delicious food, friendly, helpful staff and coeliac friendly. Whole mud crab for $72. The place was full of locals and the food very fresh. Definitely recommended.

I have celiac disease and wasn't able to get clear explanations of which dishes are gluten-free or can be prepared that way. I took my chances on chili crab (the server said it had no soy sauce) and greatly enjoyed it. I didn't find much else I could safely eat.

When we arrived we stood around to be seated and no one seemed very interested. We were put at a table at the entrance which was windy and unpleasant. The service was shocking. Our food was cold and not at all pleasant. Onto the bill they added extra costs for the peanuts that were on the table and 2 dollars... More

Chilli crab is a must......dose the sauce with the steam bum. Main dish will feed 3-4 easily. Great atmosphere (outside is better). Service is fast and pacey. An icon to always visit.

We had 3 tables of 10 and ordered a set dinner. The giant clams, pepper crabs and roast chicken were good. Fish, fried rice and mango dessert were ok. Service is mostly fine too. Like some restaurants and coffee shops, the beer is outsourced to a 3rd party and you have these grouchy ladies hawking and serving beer. Near the... More

Looking for great crabs to match your wine? Long Beach at Dempsey is super highly recommended...we ordered crabs that were prepared in 2 different ways. Most people would order the famous Chilli crabs with mantou(buns that are either steamed or fried), but what we ordered are crabs cooked in white pepper and the other one with salted egg...it is a...

I went there to have a lunch with my local friend. We ordered tuna salad, vegetables soup, baked mushrooms and seafood spaghetti. For vegetables soup, i can see it was filled with oil (not much),maybe the chef added some oil? The texture of spaghetti is not soft enough.
