King Lobster

Posted by Staff / Listed on November 11, 2011 / review policy

King LobsterKing Lobster in Chinatown is there to satisfy those pesky scallop cravings right up until 6 a.m. on Saturday nights (or Sunday mornings). Open until 5 a.m. all other days, King Lobster offers prawns, oysters, clams, lobster (obviously), and many other types of seafood, plus all the regular Chinese food offerings and pretty quick service to boot. Because you don't want to be late for work, after all.

I would say this restaurant is one of the best restaurants in chinatown yet. Eatting out here is like eatting at home with my family. The service here is just amazing. I can honestly say that this resturant takes its time making the food so it taste extra great. Quailty over quanaity. 5stars!!

No, this restaurant is NOT closed. It is the best one I have been too in a very long time. I'm going there today to get my fix.

Ordered takeout from here last night.

They do delivery until 5AM! Huge bonus for me. Delivery took about 40 minutes. Standard.

Wontons in sweet and sour sauce - Yummy! They were flaky and crispy and delicious. My favorite part of the meal and the portion was large.

Orange chicken/Sweet and sour chicken - I ordered both of these dishes but they tasted the same (one came on a bed of rice). Maybe they use similar sauce or mixed up the order? Not bad. Vegetables used were not very fresh though.

Steamed rice - Good. HUGE portion! I ordered medium comparing it to the portion I normally get at Swatow (a ball that could fit in two hands). Ordered medium and got a full takeout container which I was thrilled about. Curious how big the large is!

Bill total = $28.31.

Considering that I'll have food for the next three days, very good value. Good option if you're hungry and don't want to spend much (or leave the house!). I would order again.

I love this place. I had no idea they did take out. Great value.
The only thing is that there is no music - none - playing in the restaurant.
Don't you think that is weird?
I love the food though.
Best thing on the menu is shrimp and eggplant in spicy sauce. Yum!

Quickly becoming my favourite restaurant in chinatown, I've been several times this year. The dinner for 2 with a pair of lobsters, 2 full entrees and hot and sour soup for under $50 is an amazing deal. Everything I have tried has been excellent, highly recommend the live vancouver crab and deep fried stuffed crab claws, even the beef tenderloin on rice was stellar. Great service as well and open all damn night!

I found the staff to be very Rude and Pretentious.

The utensils and walls (adjacent to the tables) were dirty.
After ordering our food, from a Chinese waitress who was rude and impatient, we decided to leave and take our money elsewhere-OUT OF CHINATOWN. The people who work in Chinatown are often rude and arrogant.
