Lobster, lobster and more lobster. Yeap that is what you'd find in this new restaurant at Duxton and one which is similar to that of Burger and Lobster in London. Basically, you get to choose from a very wide menu of 3 dishes - Live whole lobster, Lobster Roll and the Chilli Lobster at $48++ a dish.
The live whole lobster (5 Hands)
Naturally the most popular of the 3 dishes. Comes either Grilled or Steamed. imo, grilled would be the better choice. You can taste the freshness of the lobster, yet having that slightly charred after taste. Really good value for the dish. I'd come back anytime just for this.
Lobster Roll (3Hands)
Lobster chunks marinated in mayo and salt, served on a bun, it was good but definitely not worth the price when compared to the fresh grilled lobster above. Worth a try though, if you are in the mood to splurge.

Chill Lobster (4Hands)
The dish that divided opinions. Personally (and because i am not a chilli person), this dish was a win. Perhaps suited more towards the western palate, the chilli sauce isn't as authentic as those we find in our seafood joints. Still, i liked it due to the very tangy and lesser chilli-ish taste. Dipped with the deep fried man tou, the mix of flavours would satisy the hungriest of person. I was also impressed by how the lobster was cooked just right, tender and not too tough.
Overall verdict: 4 hands. Definitely worth a try once. Good flavours, good ambience. However, please be minded that waiting time would normally be 1-2 hours if you ain't the first seating. Sometimes, the waiting time kills that anticipation. Also, i felt that the dinner service was very rushed; you can't blame them as the queue outside can be quite snaky.
