If you want tasty food and quick parking and do not mind the variety of crowd, this is the best possible place. We have been patronising them for quite some time now as our daughter loves Chinese. We've been more or less happy with them. However, in recent times the service has really fallen from grace and that costs them the stars. I would urge the authorities to take up the service issue seriously.

Big Boss is really a high end and one of the best restaurants in China Town in Kolkata. The food is delicious and service good too.

1st time with my school friends in my last visit to Kolkata. It’s a big big place and spacious. Tables are not cluttered. It was weekend night but there was enough seats. They have there own huge parking space. The ambiance is nice but the Chinese decor was missing.

We were all men so the waiter guided us to a separate side (in last part of the restaurant) for sitting. Few groups (all male) were soughting and cracking jokes loudly, which were enough to spoil the atmosphere.

The food was excellent and pretty reasonably priced as well. Rs.3300/- for 6 person with booze. The service was very prompt.

We have been here three times, the first two times with an Indian friend who chose Indian chinese (spicy) favorites, and the last time just the two of us for a light lunch, when we selected our own (non-spicy) chinese dishes. These took a little time, perhaps 15 minutes, to arrive but were definitely worth the wait because they had been freshly prepared- and you could taste it! The food here, particularly the non-indian chinese dishes, are really good. We recommend you try the vegetable spring rolls or prawn wantons as an entree. And its quite good value too.

This place is totally Kapow!
The food is true to the core Tangra Chinese which is in its own right the truest version of Indianized Chinese straight up from the Chinese immigrants in Tangra. Everything tastes so good, just make sure you dont have a weak constitution on the evening you venture here.

The service is incredibly fast, almost like the waiter is a mind-reader and has already asked the chef for what you're going to order - ofcourse it could be a case of optimized base ingredients and pre-mixes but I like my former theory better. I go with what they recommend when in doubt.

I love how the place immediately appeals to me, right from when one enters - the parking space (In Tangra that is super premium), the decor and the bustling yet friendly two tiered dining hall.

And best of all you can eat your hearts fill and still not flinch when you ask for the checque.
Love It!
