Really good quality product!

5 stars

Very impressed by this lobster. It's very cost effective, just 7 pounds but nearly 400 grams in weight. I split it according to the guidelines in the packaging, and cooked in the Chinese way. Adding some cooking wine, ginger, fermented soya beans, light soy sauce, chopped garlic, and dried pepper..it's amazing! Would definitely come and buy again!

Really good value and great taste. I split the shell in half and removed the meat, then removed the meat from the claws (with some effort!) and using an internet recipie made lobster thermidor. It was absolutely delicious

Complete waste of money
