    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.
