Lobsterman does excellent lobster dishes

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

One of the worst meals I have had in a restaurant. When we first tried to order, we were already told that we had to pay extra for the set meal for 2 persons that we were trying to order as they had run out of the size of lobster that is included with the set menu. Within 5 minutes... More

No frills with no worries whether they over charge you on the lobster you've order as prices start from RM98 for a 550grm all the way to 900grm (bigger size upon request).Not a place of cosy and romantic but a place for lobster lover(at such price)with over 20 cooking style ranging from Chinese to Italian to choose from...very limited sides...

The Lobsterman is located the corner shop lot in middle of the residential area. We had Lobster special for 2 pax RM128++. Soup, escargot, lobster, rice, dessert, coffee/tea. Sounds reasonable...but to be honest it is a bit overpriced against the quality and quantity. Overall, I have enjoyed fresh seafood and efficient service.
