Great Dim Sum!

Bosses is far more then my expectation comparing to other similar chains. To my surprise the foods was serve rather after my order, two of my favorite dishes were the Custard Bun & Queen of Shumai both was delightful and are a must try. Co-workers & Servers are attentive to my needs throughout my dining experience. I would recommend Bosses as one of the place for great dim sum.

Overrated.

Went for ala carte dim sum. Told us there is a 30% discount. Ordered a few dishes but honestly the food is pretty normal. Not worth the price we are paying. It wasn't very appetizing to start with, so we had enough within a pretty short time. We had one order of har Gou and one order of Xiao long Bao (which is really not fantastic at all!) and we were not able to finish it. We left 1 piece of har gau and 3 pcs of XLB and asked to pack for us. And she said she has to charge us original price for that because discount is only for dine in only. I find it very calculative given that we didn't ask to pack the whole order but only a few pieces. Not very impressed with the service level. Will not go again even though I did quite like the Liu sha Bao.. It's just not worth it!

Only Good Custard Lava Buns

Came here for dimsum lunch. Ordered their signature custard lava buns. Indeed, it's the best custard bun I've ever eaten. Once u bite it, the molten custard mixed with salted egg yolk simply oozes out. The custard is thick and filled with the scent of salted egg yolk. A definite must try! The taro lava buns, on the other hand, is a let down. Yes, the filling is also runny and flows out but the filling is too custardy. There's only a faint taste of taro, think it'll be better if there are chunks of yam in it. The prawn siewmai is not bad. Topped with a prawn that is fresh and chewy, the siew mai is really "solid" with chunks of minced meat and prawns. Goes very well with the chilli sauce served on the table. The fried noodles that is available on the dimsum menu is a surprising tasty item. Plain as it looks, it is filled with the slightly salty but aromatic smell of soy sauce noodles. Not much ingredients in it, but it's a really delicious item that can fill your stomach easily. The pan fried XO turnip cake was not bad. Many tables ordered it but I felt it's overrated. The chunks of turnip were pan fried to perfection, crispy on the outside but melts in your mouth on the inside. However it's a tad too oily, so after a few mouthfuls one will get sick of it. Overall, only the custard lava buns were satisfying. The dimsums were overpriced, so a good recommendation: just takeaway the custard buns if u're a salted egg yolk lover.

Lousy concept, bad service, meagre food.

I came after hearing about their "exploding custard buns". And after looking through the menu, we decided to have a full dinner here instead of just dimsum. Upon entry, the service crew (if you could call them that) looked obviously unmotivated and were pretty lazy. I mean, they weren't bad, they didn't have bad attitude, but they were just very dull and lifeless. I can only imagine what kind of person their "boss" (pun intended) was like. To be fair to the restaurant, I wouldn't talk about their lousy concept on the whole. On to the food. I was very disappointed that we were unable to order dimsum as we weren't told that dimsum is not available during dinnertime, and neither were there any notices/signs that mentioned anything about it. Feeling cheated, I decided to make do with the mains and went ahead to order a Spring Onion La Mian for myself while my friend ordered claypot rice. We also ordered a seafood fried rice to share. First, the food took wayyyyyyyy too long to arrive. When the claypot rice arrived, it smelt decent, so my friend dug in and immediately gave a disappointed look. The taste wasn't that bad, but the texture of the rice was really bad. It was just barely more solid than a paste. Sticky and unappetizing. Oh well, at least it tasted fine. The fried rice arrived next and again, the rice had that sticky texture. This time round though, it was really bland. I couldn't even think about anything nice to say about this. Obviously, we didn't finish it. When my spring onion la mian finally arrived, I was stunned. I mean, the looks itself was already very unappealing. The noodles were overcooked and had a slight stench to it. I took a spoonful of it and decided it was enough. We did not want to waste our time here any longer. However, we were not after a free meal, so we paid anyway and left. All in all, by all means, don't dine here unless you're looking to get the worst dining experience ever at a chinese restaurant. A lively atmosphere is a must-have for a chinese restaurant, and this place doesn't even offer that. Moreover, the food was absolutely terrible. Everything was just sticky and feels disgusting in your mouth. You have been warned. Their dimsum might be better, but I would not step into this restaurant again. If you're at Vivocity, I recommend that you dine at The King Louis instead (which is one of my favourite restaurants, but that's for another review).
