We went by there last week with a fairly large crowd of people. The waiter claimed that the head chef originally from Newport Seafood had started this restaurant. Unfortunately, the conversation was completely in Vietnamese, so I had to rely on my wonderful wife who translated for me.
We ordered the House Special Lobster. For an additional $6, you can order it on a bed of garlic yee mein-style noodles. It was fantastic. The sauce from the lobster spreads out over the noodles, which gives them an excellent flavor.
The deep fried tofu was done very well. It was crispy, but not crunchy. The sweet soy sauce accompanied it.
We ordered crab, but the waiter said they had rejected the latest crab shipment because they were too small–not enough meat.
Unfortunately, the members of my party were not on the adventurous side, and most of them choose some common dishes: Stir fried beef, French-style beef, Honey Walnut Shrimp, Stir fried vegetables. All of them were good. But I’ve had so many of those dishes in my life that it’s hard to get excited by them no matter how well they are cooked.
New Century Lobster is not cheap. You get what you pay for. Service was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
This restaurant is located behind Tip Top restaurant. It cannot been seen from the street.
