Chinese restaurant dinners are often reserved for occasions like birthdays and Chinese New Year, but you don’t need a special reason to head down to Imperial Court this month – other than their lobster promotion, that is.

Their Boston Lobster in Trio Styles – namely deep fried in mustard sauce with smoked salmon, baked with “superior broth”, and pan-fried with broccoli – is going at the sweet price of just $38, down from the usual $88 (min 2 pax).

If you’re coming in a group of 4, get the Great Value Boston Lobster Set Menu at $268 (U.P. $358), which works out to $67 per person. This might be pricier, but it’s a full 5-course meal with lobster udon, vegetables in lobster broth, and lobster mushroom soup – along with steamed whole lobsters of course.
