Pince & Pints Kuala Lumpur is a 55-seater restaurant in the bustling foodie precinct of Bangsar (Jalan Telawi 5, located just next to Ril's Steakhouse), presenting incomparable affordable prices for fresh, quality lobsters.

Pince & Pints Kuala Lumpur combines the rustic charm of lobster houses in New England with the polished sophistication of city life that consists of an elegant mix of marble, walnut timber finish, bronze mirrors and copper detailing. Diners can also look forward to see one of Malaysia’s most celebrated artists, Ahmad Zakii Anwar’s lobster inspired artwork that will be featured in the restaurant.

Wild-caught lobsters are air flown live from the waters of Boston, Maine and Canada twice a week to Pince & Pints’ own holding facility with specifically tuned-in conditions to maintain the freshness of each lobster. 

No lobster stays more than 7 days in the restaurant to ensure that the lobsters served are always top quality – meaty, juicy and fresh.

All food items on the menu are priced at a standard RM158++, and every dish comprises of a whole lobster portion (approx 600-650g). As for now, Pince & Pints only have five (5) food item on their menu to ensure the quality and standard are uphold. 

The Lobster Roll 
Hearty chunks of fresh lobster meat tossed in mayonnaise and salt, stuffed in a “top split” homemade bun, and served with straight cut fries with skin, garlic aioli and house salad.

A signature at Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar: steamed, then marinated with mayonnaise and salt. The iconic “top split” homemade bun is generously spread with butter before pan-frying, which makes the roll light and crispy with an aromatic richness. Stuffed with hearty chunks of the natural sweetness of the meat (using a whole lobster and the claw) and coated with chopped chives, the dish is then served with a side of straight cut fries with skin and salad with the restaurant’s own house dressing of sour cherry balasmic vinaigrette.
Chili Lobster with Mantou 
An homage to its Singaporean roots, a special house blend chili gravy envelopes a whole portion of fresh lobster and is served with a side of mantou (fried buns), the perfect pillows to soak up the mouth-watering sauce
With slighty more tart and sweeter than the chili sauce used for crabs, roma tomatoes, ginger, lemon grass, garlic, and egg are added to the chili sauce (a special house blend). The sauce delivers its singular, delicious punch with mantou (fried buns) – providing as the perfect pillows to soak up the mouth-watering gravy.
Whole Live Lobster (Grilled) 
A whole portion of lobster, grilled to perfection, and ready to be dunked in the homemade herbed butter sauce, served with straight cut fries with skin and house salad. The grilled/steamed is the best ways to fully appreciate and experience the natural sweetness and freshness of lobsters.

The grilled version comes with mesclun salad tossed in sour cherry and balsamic vinaigrette, herbed butter and straight cut fries with skin.

Whole Live Lobster (Steamed) 
And for the steamed version, the live lobster is steamed in salted water and olive oil (a classic New England technique) to enhance the natural taste of the sea; the perfect option for those wanting to ‘eat clean’. Served with addictive Garlic Alioli sauce which tempts you to go for seconds!
Lobster Noodles (exclusive to Pince & Pints Kuala Lumpur) 
Large chunks of shell-on lobster stir-fried with scallions and ginger in a lightly seasoned sauce atop freshly made egg noodles, and served with chili oil.
The noodles were springy and flavourful. Each slurp was packed with the natural sweetness of the lobster, plus some "wok hei" for the extra kick.

Expect an array of sweet, sour, bitter and dry cocktails, boutique wines from all over the world, artisanal beers and handcrafted mocktails here at Pince & Pints. Whether you're looking for the perfect cocktail to start your meal, or a dessert-like concoction to relish after satisfying your lobster cravings, the cocktails served here at Pince & Pints will further excite and tantalize the tastebuds and dining experience.
