Place to take a group, each of whom wants a different cuisine. I had the tempeh special which was more the texture and taste of a bean loaf, bland and cut into logs. The curry sauce was very mild and a little too sweet. The tempeh was on a big bed of brown rice and garnished with sauteed red onions... More

I had wrap there and it was pretty good. They do not use sea salt which is important factor for me. It was fresh but it is average. Not so extraordinary.

A very varied menu with all kinds of Middle Eastern, Thai and other dishes all seemingly made with the freshest ingredients. So far, I have stuck to the falafel wrap which is the best I've had in decades. Great for lunch. Lively, dynamic and the food has so much vitality to it with lots of veggies. Very casual but efficiently... More

Great food, no matter what we try. Nice comfortable decor; rather small inside but fortunately we've always managed to find a seat.

As Californians in Metro West for business, we were craving what we think of as "regular" food but which folks in MA seem to call "hippie" food. Big Fresh did not disappoint. Every dish we had at Big Fresh had great flavors. I'm so glad we found Big Fresh but now that we're back in California, I really miss it!

This is Moroccan food, very spicy with a good flavor but even though I grew up with spicy food I could not eat more than half of my meal because my mouth was burning. Portions were generous. Maybe the price is cheap for Boston but I felt like it was a bit high given the atmosphere. Very hot and humid... More

We are regulars, dining here dozens of times. It us wholesome, healthy, and real, and deserves high praise for good food with low prices. There are so many good items to recommend, from the homemade lentil soup to the chicken plates with tahini and hummus. The falafel balls are delicious and the salads --- amazing! They could offer a few... More

The place is small and no frills, but food is excellent. We ordered Tofu Thai curry and Salmon Moroccan Tgine. The portion is generous. You find many vegetarian menu as well as meat/fish with exhotic spices. It is amazing that the restaurant can provide so many items in such a small kitchen. Highly recommend !

Very tasty and healthy food, in a quiet little place and friendly staff. Great tea selection and occasional specials, the stir friy with salmon is my favorite

Its tight small. But the food is sooo well prepared and delicious. Their curries, noodles, brown rice. Delightful for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Their sauces are so flavorful, the portions are huge. Its just wonderful. I love their tempeh, their curries, their wraps. Made fresh, in front of your eyes. Vegan? No problem! Want chicken? They have it. So good!
