Located in Cambridge, we walked from the Le Meridien Hotel property on a September night. Went for lunch based on a great sushi lunch. Had shoyu udon, tonkatsu pork curry,(ummmm) and sushi for dinner the next night. Friendly busy place. Wish we had one in Philadelphia. Will recommend to others visiting.

Very basic environment, and the staff were a bit perfunctory, but at the 1st bite of the fried oysters all was forgiven, quite possibly some of the best I have had. The 2 making rolls we shared were great, definitely will return next time we visit the area.

Ok, best sushi and asian fusion cuisine in Central Sq. cambridge, Mass. This place is our favorite place to go whenever I have luncheon with my daughter. I can say so much wonderful things about this place but it's better to experience it yourself. This is why I always recommend this restaurant to our Guest. My favorite in the menu:... More

Our daughter and son-in law recommended this restaurant as an excellent place for Sushi/Thai/Noodles. The food was OK. Service and atmosphere left a lot to be desired. The restaurant is very noisy and it is hard to have a conversation without raising your voice. This could be because the tables are literally inches away from each other. Service was also... More

Everything we have ever had from this restaurant is very good. Quality ingredients used in every dish. The new system for online ordering is fantastically smooth and food is delivered quick and hot.

We stopped here for lunch after a business meeting, before heading to the airport, thanks to a recommendation from our client whose office is nearby. The four of us each had something a little different from the very extensive menu of Asian food, ranging from tekka don (sushi) to rice and noodle dishes. All of the food was very, very... More

Even if the server doesn't always smile, they are very friendly. But you are here mostly for the food, and that is what counts at this very busy sushi/thai jazzy spot. Quality is key here and authentic Thai is a speciality.

We had a nice experience at this cleverly named new place in Central Square. It is like many new combo Asian places, with a large sushi selction, supplemented by an equally large choice of Japanese, Thai, Chinese and Indonesian main dishes, from noodles to fried rice. The place is run by very friendly Thais, and it's reasonably priced.

I was incredibly surprised at how fast our sushi was brought out to us. The sushi felt unique because of the creative names and ingredients. It was a bit cramped in the dining area though, but that's expected of central square. Overall a great place to get good food quickly!
