Lobster Air @ City Gate - Hop Onto Cloud Nine With Airplane-themed Restaurant Lobster Air


Situated within City Gate, new airport-themed restaurant Lobster Air has opened its doors to serve premium lobster dishes for the lobster and travel enthusiasts. Every customer will enjoy an immersive airline cabin experience, choosing to dine in first or business class zones, capture Instagram moments against full-sized plane interior images, and enjoy first-rate service from a team of authentic cabin crew, including steaming hot towels.


Customers can choose from airline-inspired Business Class/First Class Lunch/Dinner Sets or Short-Haul selection during their ‘flight’ at Lobster Air. They can also go for Before Landing Desserts, Brunch and In-Flight Alcoholic and Non-alcoholic Beverages. We tried their Business Class Lunch Course, which included a choice of mains, soup of the day (+$10), salad, appetisers (+$20) and desserts at additional costs.

Mushroom Soup 3.8/5

First, we had the Soup Of The Day - Mushroom Soup (+$10). Creamy and filled with mushroom bits, we enjoyed the deep earthy flavours of this classic mushroom soup that has a faint whiff of truffle.

L.A. House Salad 3/5

Next, we were served a small bowl of L.A. House Salad dressed in a tangy house dressing.

Half Boston Lobster Aglio Olio 3.5/5

Customers can opt for their appetisers of a half dozen oysters as well at an additional $20. However, we skipped the appetisers and headed straight for their mains of the Half Boston Lobster Aglio Olio ($44) baked with garlic butter sauce and a serving of al dente Aglio Olio Spaghetti. While we loved the lobster's garlic butter fragrance, we felt that the taste fell flat as the spaghetti has the same garlicky flavours.

Dark Chocolate Lava Cake 4/5

Signature Brownie 3.8/5

Finally, round off your meal with their chewy and fudgy Signature Brownie ($5) or the Dark Chocolate Lava Cake ($8) served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


Beyond its gastronomical offerings, Lobster Air endeavours to make a difference in a world stricken by uncertainty due to COVID-19. Seeing how the pandemic has greatly impacted the aviation industry, Lobster Air is founded to offer part-time or full-time jobs to affected personnel such as flight attendants, pilots, ground crew and back office workers who have lost their jobs or suffered reduced income.

In addition, Lobster Air is also extending ‘Staff Travel’ exclusive deals to employees from across all airlines and departments to brighten up the gloomy period for the aviation industry workforce. The privileges include 50% off for the second purchase of the course menu, a hearty discount inspired by how airlines offer staff travel tickets, and free coffee or tea, provided upon staff ID presentation on weekdays.
