Lavish Family gathering

On 26th of April, come across the promotion and decided to give this restaurant a go. Managed to get a table of 10 person through the help of the friendly staff whom advised us to turn up at 5.30pm sharply as booking was full ! ( We actually would like a table at 6pm )
 With excitement, we turn up at the restaurant where we are greeted with a team of helpful and friendly staff. But the place was not packed as we expected and surprisingly we are the 3rd group of dine in customers. It was a quiet start with us having the full attention from the team.
 We order 2 Bombiggity bag which comes with a free lobster, 2 fish and chips, Potato scoops and mid joint wings. The waitress make special arrangement for the kids with all the sweet corn cooked in the garlic butter instead of the " Medium Works ".
 The serving was served in no time ( while the restaurant was still half full by this time which was way passed 6pm, thus my puzzlement of why I was denied for the 6pm booking ). We digged in the piping hot Fish and Chips and were welcomed by its crispy and tenderness on the first bites. The wings were also fried to the right texture with juice oozing out to capture our sweet sense. The " Medium work " was of the right spice with all the freshness from the seafood. But the " Garlic Butter " was a disappointment as the butter was too overwhelming and couldn't handle it after the 3rd helping.
 As a large group, we have difficulty in sharing the foods especially when we have 2 different bags, and that makes it a big challenge especially with the kids. Perhaps, we should have asked to splits the bags into 4 so that each side would be able to try the 2 sauce at the same times. 
We left with a full stomach but not with a strong satisfactionary feeling.

My last meal here was some time ago and I came across this great promotion, where you can get a free lobster if you book online via hungrygowhere. The deal is that you have to book online, order The Boiler Bombiggity Bag and you will get a Free Boston Lobster!   I rounded two colleagues and we came here for dinner.   Eating here is unique, cos you eat with your hands and just throw the seafood shells on the table. They do provide the crab/ lobster cracker to help you crack through the shells of the crustaceans.   The staff came to put on bibs/ aprons over your clothes to prevent accidental stains of your clothing while eating.   We ordered The Boiler Lemonade, whch has a bottle of Vitagen in it. Its nice and refreshing.   Here are the highlights of the meal: - Boiler’s Bombiggity Bag: This was a combo bag with all their seafood offerings. It had Dungeness (Brown) crab, prawns, mussels, clams, sausages, corn and came with deep fried buns (Mantou).   We had this done ‘The Works’ – Medium spicy. Its hot, and 5 minutes diving into the meal, I was perspiring. I could feel the sweat beads forming from the top of the head.   The crabs were meaty and cut up so the gravy covers every available surface and makes the seafood flavourful. It’s fresh! Prawns were good-sized and also fresh. My friend loved it! Lots of clams and mussels in it too.   - Whole Boston Lobster in Garlic Butter Sauce: The lobster was a decent sized and more than enough for the 3 of us to eat. The lobster was fresh and meaty. The garlic butter sauce was also good.   - Southern Chicks & Waffles: We added this to your order, as my colleague had this before and she liked it. You get 4 quartered thin crispy waffles with a piece of deep-fried chicken breast with a toothpick holding them together.Its drizzled with maple syrup. Given the name, I think it’s a dish from Southern America. Its good. The waffles are crispy and the chicken is moist and tender.   It was a good meal, and we did have tasty fingers, after all dipping into the seafood and eating with our hands.   Do go before the end of the month to enjoy this promotion!   Recommended!

Went to The Boiler after a friend's recommendation and was indeed impressed by this place! We ordered a seafood bag for 5 person and a fish and chips after hearing raved reviews about them. We also ordered the lemonade, beerita, draft beer at $5 (during happy hour) and a dessert.

 We were so impressed by the fish and chips eventhough this place is not supposed to be famous for them. The batter was light and crispy, the fish was well marinated and the fish just melted in our mouth. So good! Next came the highlight of the night, the seafood in a bag which consists of dungeness crab, prawns, mussels, clams, sausages and corn, and a side of fried buns. The dungeness crab was so fresh and sweet, the prawns were amazingly fresh and succulent. The Works sauce, O.M.G. So Good! Couldn't stop drinking them eventhough I knew I should be. Mopped them up with the buns. We were so full, but craved for another fish and chips and we ordered one more! 

The lemonade was refreshingly good with fresh lemon juice. The beerita (corona with blended juice) was yummy and goes very well with the seafood. Draft beers were cheap, only $5 during happy hours, and made us very happy indeed! Ended the night with crispy banana and durian with ice cream. Perfectly fried banana and durian balls in a light batter. 

The service was excellent, eventhough the place was full at 5.30pm! we will definitely be back to try the other sauces.
