“Good food.”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

We went to this restaurant after terrible experience at Welcome Seafood Restautant, KK. We were being served upon bent seated. The fried garoupa fish was tasty, calamari was crispy and kangkong belacan was equally good. Price was reasonable and service was good. This is definately a much better place than Welcome Seafood Restaurant.

“Vibey with good food and easy to order for English speakers”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

We tried 2 seafood restaurants in KK, this one and Welcome.

Welcome is a quite different experience, and a bit challenging for an English speaker.

Lobster King had excellent food and friendly helpful staff. Pick your own live seafood from the tanks, and they also have non-seafood as well if it's not your thing.

We had an excellent lobster in the local gravy preparation, salt and pepper mantis prawns, egg yolk fried crab and a chicken dish along with vegetables.

It's also co-located with Oyster bar and there is an amenable relationship between the proprietors allowing you access to a good range of alcoholic beverages to compliment your meal including wine by the glass.

Highly recommended.
