So for tasty seafood with a Thai twist, there really is no safer bet than The Lobster Pot!
Great visit from start to finish. Attentive staff made sure we had everything we needed, and the food was just amazing. We had the lobster shellfish platter, and everything in it was so fresh and tasty. Can’t recommend The Lobster Pot enough!
Fantastic food and great service. The lobster was amazing! Lovely little restaurant. Will definitely go back and recommend to friends and family. Easy to find too x
The food and service was amazing .I had the crab ball for starter which were very tummy and of course half a lobster for the main course omg it was really tasty a you must visit
Great food, good menu and plenty of help from the staff on getting the fish out of the awkward shells using special tools, recommend highly.
Really lovely friendly staff and tasty food at a reasonable price. We had a lobster seafood platter to share and some excellent fries. Chef kindly modified the platter to leave out the oysters, offering us calamari and more mussels instead. A bit disappointing that some of the seafood was clearly pre-formed/prepared, as was the chilli sauce, and the prawns looked like the type you get frozen from a supermarket... but I suppose you can't expect much more this far inland! The lobster was really excellent.
Starters great, nice chowder, perfect and prawns nice. Main course of Thai prawns with rice nice although my request for spicy didn't really make the dish that spicy. The Lobster was a bit of a disappointment, the claws were great and soft but the body flesh was a bit tough. I suspect there isn't the demand there for whole lobster and so perhaps it may have been either frozen, not fresh or maybe over-cooked. Otherwise fine and we will give it another go sometime and go off the fresh fish parts of the menu.
Booked a table for 6.30 was greeted by friendly staff who made us feel welcome, my partner had Lobster for the very first time and the staff took time to show her how to eat It which was appreciated. Overall a great experience, great food, great service will be back to try other seafood dishes. thank you all
Fantastic service, delicious fresh seafood served with imaginative twists. I usually come for the mussels but was tempted by the scallops this time and wasn't disappointed. Ask the staff for recommendations. Best seafood place in Nottingham, without a doubt. Thanks for a wonderful meal.
Was really looking forward to the meal and it did not disappoint, the food was delicious. The staff were friendly and welcoming and did everything they could to make sure the visit was perfect. Absolutely perfect, can't wait to go again :-) Thank you
Been to this place a few times now. Surely is the best lobster in town. Reasonable price, good portion and lively taste. I always have the seafood platte with extra 12 oysters and chef's special king prawn fried rice. Highly recommend these three.
