Used to be one of my favorite 10 years back but run down these days. Latest from doesn't gives me good experience. Guess they do not put their best chef during lunch time but I do not get aroma and texture of a lobster, but ordinary prawn instead. Guess they they prepare the lobster just like preparing ordinary prawn from... More

Lobsters are not my favourite but at times there is a urge to get a fix on a delicacy. It was lobsters and we decided on Lobsterman. It was one of those rare choices as I always refer to Tripadvisor. However this place as I found out was very good. I had the french grilled...very good. The wife had lobster... More

The restaurant had an obvious change of ownership, I've been there several times in the past when it was good. The lobster fried rice taste like a normal fried rice you would get from a hawker shop, lobster is almost non- existent. The lobster with yee mee is edible, but the lobster is so small to a point where there... More

We had the french baked lobster, lobster bisque, Lobster fried rice and Mixed Grill. The live lobster was brought to the table for verification and was summarily taken to the kitchen. The lobster bisque was very good. good value for money. I usually go for Lobster bisque if it is on the menu. I was not disappointed. there were two... More

This restaurant has been around for over 10 years. Given that their location is hidden from main road, they had done well to survive the competitive food landscape. Prices had increased quite a bit over the years. The 550g (1.25lb) lobsters used to cost RM78 6 to 8 years back. Today, they cost RM138. Almost double. The size of lobster... 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

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 Saturday evening....

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
