My experience

Will never understand why a small eatery like this should be serving everyone like a butler in a grand mansion.

.
.
Egg Yoke Custard Lava Bun -  dont miss; not too sweet, very oily though.
Fried Dough wrapped in rice sheet aka cha leong aka you tiao cheong fun
  - dont miss (in fact better than those disgusting overnight soggy stuff served in HK)
Har Gau - dont miss, very very crunchy, springy
Nai Cha - dont miss (I asked for less sugar)
Siew Mai; Lo Mai Gai; steamed pork ribs pieces -  average only.  SG Kopitiam is better.
Xiao Long Bao - dont miss
Lo Bo Gao - dont miss; exactly like its done in HK.  The radish are still in strips.

I really dont understand how our youngsters condemned this eatery (in other websites as well).   Prices inclusive of gst but NO service charge.  
Every item is at least 4.80 for 3 pcs vs 4.00 for 2 pcs at TANG'S Man Ho Restaurant.
.

Not for those who need one big plate of fried rice for lunch or dinner.
Not cheap, definitely not an atas dining place and absolutely not for those who wants king's service.

Casual dim sum lunch

Decided to visit this place after seeing their "Golden Egg Yolk Lava Buns" on the lists for top custard egg buns. Place is about 5-10 mins away from Bugis+ There wasn't much space to move around in the store. Ordered quite a few dishes such as "Golden Egg Yolk Lava Buns", "Chee Cheong Fun", etc. The portions were fairly big and tasted good. The custard buns tasted so good that my friend ordered another serving (3 buns) all for himself. I was quite fascinated by how they serve their "HK Milk Tea" as I don't eat dim sum frequently. The drink is served warm in a glass, with a bowl of ice. Personally, I find that the pricing was slightly expensive. However, it is still recommended given their quality of food.

Really bad service at Victor's Kitchen

I had experienced really terrible service at Victor's Kitchen today. I had went in a group and everyone's orders had arrived but mine. i waited for about 30 minutes, and still my food had yet to come, depsite ordering the exact same dish. Thus, i nicely went to speak with the store-in-charge/chef/owner on this, and to my utter shock and disgust, he replied arrogantly, "If you cant wait, then leave! " I needed no further encouragement, i stood up and left the shop immediately as i was also in a rush. With this kind of lousy and arrogant attitude, no matter how good the food is, it is sure that not many will be back. I hope this review will alert potential customers to the bad service evident here. Unless you are ready to wait for your food unconditionally, please give this shop a miss.

Purely go for the food...although there are hits and misses

If you are finding some nice ambience and good service,this place is not for u...

Well there is no service charge but service is quite good oredi...they are not those vocal persons but their actions speak a lot...for e.g those steamy hot food/chilli will not be placed near children

Ambience...very compact and hard to move ard..but then many chiobus eating there during weekends so that improves the atmosphere

Food - Egg tarts,chee cheong fun with fried fritter and the famous egg custard buns are the best...can even taste piece of egg yolk inside of the crispy bun...

Yam cake and porridge got those 80s taste...very nice

However the carrot cake with xo and the har gow not that nice...


Drinks also quite good...like the yinyong which is more of milk tea taste

Victor’s Kitchen, where Dim Sum magic happens

Long before the big swanky restaurant chain, Tim Ho Wan, was brought to Singapore, Victor’s Kitchen first started out as small and cosy Hong Kong-style dim sum eatery. A simple setup of metal tables and plastic stools, the place is smacked in the middle of Bugis, which is highly inaccessible but yet never lacks in patrons and diners. This was a sign that Victor’s Kitchen means business. The chief chef hails from Hong Kong, who was previously a chef at Victoria Hotel. No wonder, this place is swarming with rave reviews.
