Horrible behavior by a business owner. I’d give zero stars if I could. I placed a takeout order directly from their website, paid and tipped 20%. When I arrived to pick up my order, the lights were out and only an answering machine was available to leave a message on. After two unanswered phone call messages over the course of 3 days, I had to contact my credit card company to dispute my posted charge. The restaurant took my money, never returned my calls and required a dispute to work to get money back for food that was never made. I’ve been by the restaurant twice since then and it looks like they may be out of business. If they’re not out of business, they should be. There’s no excuse for taking a customer’s money without providing a service and ignoring their calls. None. Other negative reviews show the same behavior from ownership which goes to show that their behavior is deliberate.

This is the third time i paid $13 for rice and plantains! They forget to put the avocado in my bowl. Do they even care anymore or nah???

Best wings I've tried in Connecticut. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for really good and unique flavors. Highly recommend the Coke, Sweet & Tangy, and Chinatown wings! It's located in a very accessible street in Hamden, and you can easily park to pick up your order. I suggest to order ahead so they have your order ready once you get there.

Honestly, I had tried to get the food multiple times just to show my support for the business. The first time I tried to walk in around 830 ish and they said the kitchen was closed which the restaurant says 9pm online. I gave them the benefit of the doubt. About 2 days later I tried to call in my order early and no one answered so I don’t know why they have a number. I finally got a chance to actually order the food the third time. I ordered the sweet and tangy wings with the house rice special. Like I said I’m only being honest, the wings were terrible. Soggy, no flavor, and the chicken itself was just bad quality like the deformed type of chicken. I was highly upset. The rice had more peas than rice and the rice was just not it. This is not to bash the restaurant this is honest feed back especially after trying and finally actually getting the food I thought I’d be a happy customer but I ended up extremely disappointed. I literally ate 3 wings and threw it out and the rice I ate about a spoonful. Ima 1 and done kind of person 1st impressions mean everything! Sorry but the food ain’t it.

Got delivery. First time ordering from here and the wings were amazing! So juicy! Can't wait to try more of their flavors. We got bomb, italian, and sweet and tangy. Bomb to my suprise doesn't have sauce but did not disappoint. Italian was good but sweet and tangy was my favorite out of the three. Thank you!


I’m leaving 3 stars because normally bomb wings doesn’t disappoint and we order from the ALL of the time! But today!! Today was NOT a good day.As you can see by the photo of my daughters rice bowl…the avocado isn’t doing well…at all. Why would they even include that!?The large order of fat boy fries was simply a regular size order placed into a large fry box…either that or they’ve decreased their portions drastically.The cornbread that’s usually warm, moist and delicious was almost inedible. I’m talking super hard! This again leaves me to the question….why include it?I love you Bomb Wings but for the amount of money we spend dining at your establishment, we should at least expect fresh food….actually regardless of how much is spent, fresh food should be a given! Hoping they were just having a bad day, as we love to support our black owned businesses!

This place did not disappoint. I went there for the first time not knowing what to expect. Me and my friend got rice bowls and they were absolutely unbelievable. the service is excellent. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. I will be adding this to my arsenal of hamden food!!!

*** Black Owned Business ***I’m Black, for the culture small of that. Service was cool, food was just okay, but I will try again.The lemon pepper wings were decent nothing special nothing exciting. The Peruvian rice looked interesting, I didn’t try it. However I was told it was nothing special. The shirmp… I thought they were friend, so that was my fault for not asking. With them being grilled… the flavor didn’t stick to them the way I wanted BUT… the were good. Not amazing but everything can’t be a home run. I loved the grilled flavor on the shrimp. The tots were good but that didn’t constitute as side.Cool ambience, good music, no dine in option, deserts were depleted. Limited drink menu. Standard food wait. Try it and let me know what you think.

Just saw this place on Uber eats and had to order! Absolutely delicious and tons of options!

I really didn't have high expectations, but the wings all tasted similar. Well, to be fair, the lemon pepper wings had a dusting of some seasoning. The shrimp were over cooked, drenched in sauce and very salty. The Chinatown wings and the bomb wings tasted nearly identical except for a slight sweetness difference.I'll give this place another shot.. Maybe.

The pineapple fried rice was so good

Last night I ordered two wing combos, got one cold order of wings with no sauce, no rice, and a overcooked tray of broccoli. The server Vinoda closed an hour early so we couldn't come back to complain. There was another customer standing outside that paid and didn't even get his food because they locked up. Didn't eat the food and went to wood n tap

My wife introduced me to this place. Pretty good food. I'm a fan of sweet and tangy wings and the sweet potato cornbread


I give a 4.5! The first time I tried them was last week and I got the Italian and jerk wings and although the flavor was good the chicken was not cooked to my liking. It was soft and needed to be cooked just a little longer so I had to throw it in the oven. The Peruvian Rice bowl was excellent and the crispy Brussels are phenomenal. I went back this week to try some different flavors(lemon pepper) and asked for the wings well done and they were cooked perfect! I got the bomb rice which is just that, the bomb, and the plantains were also bomb. Will definitely be coming back to try the other flavors!!

Wings were soggy and super salty, sauces mediocre. Also we ordered blue cheese and it wasn’t given with our order when we called to tell them they were rude. Definitely not worth it wings I would give 3 out of 10. they’ll prob be outta business soon with their low quality wings and bad service.
