Overrated, won't come again

The restaurant was recommended by a relative, and since we were in PJ for the weekends, we decided to give it a try. The children were looking forward to the lobster dinner, as it had been a while since we last had lobsters in Phuket. There was no need to make a booking, even though it was a... read more

Visited here a few months ago but only had the time to write the review now. The food wasn't as great as before anymore. Service was bad. The staff looked like they don't wanna be there and not attentive at all. When it was 10pm, we were still having our lobster and drinking our wine. The staff (a few of... More

Make booking for a table for 3 persons a week before the dinner date. We purposely drive down to KL from Seremban just... More

Food quality not up to mark. Ordered a lobster cooked with yee mee. The noodle was warm only. The pasta with mushrooms was not well done, lacking the mushrooms. Will not come again.

I thought the food was passable but nothing to shout about. True, I'm not a fan of lobster to begin with but I'm always ready to be converted with the right food. I love being proven wrong when it comes to food but this restaurant didn't quite convert me into a lobster lover. I thought the food was cooked in... More

Good preparations by the Chef and prompt service by the staff. Cozy corner and quiet side of the city.

We ordered a set for four (lobster and a mixture of steak and chicken). There were 6 of us so we ordered some noodle and baked rice to go with the set. The lobster dish is quite good but average for the rest of the dishes.

I had been there three times. Service never improved since the first time. If you care about service, this is unlikely to be your place. This is the place for those who just focus on lobster, just like those who patronage Fatty Crab (also in PJ but long queue always) are only going there for their crab but not service.... More
