    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
