In my own opinion, I prefer to stay with the regulars options... I have try most of those pre-order menu (in first), and most of them aren't as good as the regular one.... specially the lobster

Only the presentation is different. Y on ceramic, C on regular china and F on bone china.

I was shocked on my first flight in F when I was presented almost the same menu I got in C some weeks ago.
My breakfast on TG911 recently...



...described on the menu as 'Scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, grilled back bacon, tomato provencale'!

Fairly certain those sausages materialised from Y.

I did ask...but was greeted with lots of Thai smiles and "yes, special breakfast!". They'd clearly had a catering malfunction but seemed to do a decent job rustling up scrambled eggs.

I too wouldn't order from the pre-order menu - I did go for the fish chu chee having studied a couple of threads and thought it was very bland for a Thai option - crew were more than happy to also offer options from the on board menu though.

Lobster still no-go for ex-LHR to BKK?

It seems very scary to pre-order the lobster dish after so many terrible reviews from this thread, but has anyone recently ordered this meal on this flight? Is it also true that one can order another main dish on flight if this turns out to be a flop?

No doubt the crew will offer you something else...your choice being subject to availability of course.

The lobster served are often of the smaller variety during the off season, so it is a matter of knowing when to order, very much the same way you order oysters. Out of Sydney they would be called slipper nosed or worse, but the meat is of a denser consistency and after a reheat from frozen and possibly a zap or two, will be less resistant to a knife cut. I am a seafood tragic and if on a series of connecting first flights where you are served back to back dinners, I will often go for the lobster, slice it into medallions and have it with the caviar. I consider this to be a treat, it is something I never see on a menu and certaintly something never in the fridge at home for a snack

But if you don't like a plate you ordered, obviously it can't be replaced, there will always be 4-6 other choices available

I checked on this website http://eattheseasons.co.uk/Archive/lobster.htm
for the lobster season in UK... and appears to be in season for my flight this Saturday. Will go for it - carpe diem! Worst case is to eat it with caviar - sounds interesting! Will post back some pictures (either the lobster or ....)

I tried the lobster on the flight departing London a while ago, but it was not Thermidor. It contained slices of lobster in white wine/cream sauce. By the look of the menu, I think it is still the same, although I could wrong of course.

In any event, I thought it was decent, although the portion was small. So you might ask for something else. Also you can get second serving of caviar if you ask. I do that all the time and they don't refuse.

Here's the recent tasting of the lobster for the LHR - BKK evening flight. Verdict = a bit tough. The prawn chu chee curry from the menu was better.

The Won Ton soup and the Pad Thai look good though - was that part of the pre-ordered meal or just normal courses on the menu?

Yeah, only the lobster and shrimp curry (and seat) pictures are from the TG flight. The rest are from the FC Lounge area. The full body massage was wonderful.

Avoid absolutely.
It has always been very dry and tough - I have given it a go several times over the last 5 years.
It just does not seem to work out.

This is hillarious!
Your lobster will be of the "frozen and re-heated" variety, not
of the "in season" kind.

You have been warned by several people! And they will not always have "extras" of the other menu options - I think the crew keep some back for themselves sometimes!

Guess I will have to go with another choice then! Any favorites out there? The Prawn Curry looks pretty good. Any other good choices? I will be at the FCL in BKK for around 4-6 hours so food that isn't at the lounge would be great.
