    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. 💕👏🏼

    Amazing restaurant. Best place for sushi and live music. You can either get traditional sushi, or be adventurous and try their specialties. Definitely go for sleeping beauty roll.

    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

    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!

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

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

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

    Avoid the mad monk noodles unless you love chewing on strands of ginger in every bite.
  • Adriana C.
    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.

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

    We had high hopes, but were left sitting for almost 30 minutes without a waiter taking a drink order. The restaurant was not busy so it was somewhat annoying. We wound up going to another restaurant.

    DO NOT ORDER THEIR SAKE BLOODY MARY! It's is literally the most disgusting thing I have ever had! The food is great though!

    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.
