    Go see Lee at the bar. Try his 26 Jimmy, Ward 8, or a scorpion bowl if you don't need to remember the end of your evening. If you're hungry, check out Lee's Bao Bao.

    With a range of fish, veggie and meat Japanese options, The Ginger Exchange has the sushi necessities down, and its location is prime.

    The Serendipity! Roll is the best onthe menu by far, but I've never been disappointed by anything I've ordered.

    Dollar oyster Thursdays (usually from CT or ME) get some

    Jeff V. · May 14, 2010
  • Bruce D.

    the basic sushi (hidden in the drinks menu) is the best I've had in Boston

    Order the bentobox with your entree for additional 6.95 .. It's a great deal! Can even split between 2 people!

    The $9 PBR tower is pretty swell.

    Tip: Get in cab, head to Boston, do to Douzo, Osushi, or Ouishi and order sushi there instead.

    Try the Korean BBQ beef dish, it's tender, juice, tasty goodness! Accompany it with an Aloe Lemonade for a delicious meal!

    Eatern keys roll is excellent with an interesting mix of flavors. Cocktails are so so.

    Good sushi for sure, but no regular soy sauce

    Judy N. · October 19, 2013
  • Yasemin

    Food is great but service is really slow

    Yasemin · September 22, 2013
  • Briar B.

    The wings are great, but if bones aren't your thing, try the tenders. A crispy Asian twist on a classic bar nom.

    Briar B. · June 28, 2013

    Delicious sushi!

    Chicken fried rice is delicious. Ask for some siracha on side for some kick!

    Steve P. · August 14, 2012
  • Annie K.

    You can order online. It's amazing!

    Go on Thursdays for happy hour to get spicy tuna, oysters, and PBR at the bar for CRAZY cheap. Some of the menu is a bit overpriced.

    Joshua B. · March 29, 2012
  • Rob B.

    They close between 3pm and 5pm.

    Rob B. · November 22, 2011
  • Bessie K.

    Must try: their spicy wings and teriyaki wings. You can get a serving of 8 and split it between these two flavors!

    Bessie K. · November 21, 2011
  • Sam S.

    The sushi is AH-mazing. Big pieces, fresh fish. Staple of Cambridge.

    Sam S. · November 15, 2011
  • Anthony L.

    Great food but don't believe these foursquare specials. Wait staff either doesn't know or plays dumb. Wish they wouldn't!

    Anthony L. · September 20, 2011
  • Stephanie F.

    Don't get the $1 oysters. Very very bland

    Stephanie F. · July 1, 2011
  • Lindsay G.

    50 cent dumplings on Tuesdays and $9 pbr towers. Incredible dark and stormys too.

    Lindsay G. · March 9, 2011
  • Martín C.

    Beware of shitty lunchtime service. Good bento boxes though

    Martín C. · February 24, 2011
  • Paul H.

    Soy Garlic wings if you like Bon Chon. Can't beat them for the price!

    Paul H. · February 18, 2011
  • Dan C.

    Great koren fried chicken. Takes 20 min to make but they are worth the wait

    Dan C. · February 13, 2011

    We had a Crazy Maki and a Spider Maki. Both were very good, but too big for one bite. The Firecraker Beef on the other hand was fantastic.

    Carl L. · July 11, 2010

    try the Rock lobster.
