    Holy mother of curry that is delicious. And the temperanillo—actually really good! Proud of this place and the quality of food here, as well as their readiness to accommodate vegans. 💕👏🏼

    Menu boasts sushi favorites like an Alaska roll with salmon, avocado, cucumber, & scallions, & the Crouching Tiger roll with shrimp, cream cheese, avocado, asparagus, & tobiko rolled in salmon. Read more

    If you have a nut or fish allergy, try to find something on the menu that is already free of allergens. They didn't substitute any hypoallergenic sauces on my stir fry and it came out rather plain.

    ZOMG get the cranberry fried rice and red riding hood special (strawberry, spicy tuna, tempura shrimp sushi roll). Tempura prawn salad is also excellent, but watch out for wasabi chunks!

    Dynamite roll is spicy but full of flavor. And if you like Bloody Mary's try their version, it has a garlicky slightly spicy tomato flavor that is absolutely delicious!

    DYNAMITE ROLL! I don't even need soy sauce or wasabi. Mmm. But poor service (a lot of the waiters don't seem experienced) and sushi chefs don't sync food prep time w/ thai orders from back kitchen.

    Voted "Best Sushi/Sashimi" by @BostonPhoenix readers in 2012! Gaga's Monster Roll sounds like a bit much, but is delicious. And Tamarind Duck is divine, especially considering how cute it used to be. Read more

    Although everything I have tried at Monkfish tastes unreal, the chicken and shrimp pad thai is my favorite and definitely the best one I have ever tried.

    All of the fried rice are great, especially the ancient and the serenity (rich and filling). Everything can be turned veggie, give it a shot!

    Their special Fairy Tale sushi is creative and delicious. The crab rangoons, spare rib appetizer, and curry dishes are all so tasty!

    My usual order: cranberry crab Rangoon, rising sun roll and cucumber-avocado roll. With pineapple juice. Best sushi in Cambridge.

    I don't think their ancient fried rice is all it's cracked up to be. too much uncrisped fat from the duck, and not enough mushrooms.

    Ordered delivery here. Good sushi but they put too little sauce on their sushi rolls. The crunchy rolls were somewhat mushy...

    Solid affordable Sushi, nothing special but everything is pretty good. Maybe like the cheesecake factory of Asian food

    The Frog Prince special roll is unreal if you like tempura and avocado. And let's be honest... who doesn't.

    I keep coming back here because of the good reviews, but I'm just really not impressed. The food is just okay and the service is always so terrible, whether it's busy or completely empty!!!

    Frog prince roll was disappointing - similar to a normal salmon avocado roll but 3x as expensive.
