Popped in here on a Tuesday night and it was packed to the gills, I soon found for a good reason. We waited at the bar for just over an hour before our party of 4 were seated. All aspects of the service here were wonderful. The drinks were nice and strong and the food was out of this world... More

This place doesn't take reservations, you go in line and have to wait to be seated. The hot pot is very good and the sushi is good as well. They also have some Chinese food in the menu. Good restaurant for a mixture!

Lots of local folks who come here all the time. I ate at the bar and was served by Chanthra. Enjoyed my ginger/lemon martini And then had a very traditional dish, shrimp and scallop Kung pao. Very good. Not too spicy. I'm told the sushi is terrific and the hot pot is excellent but since I was dining alone I... More

HOTPOT!!! If you never tried it you need to. Looks like a local hang out. Younger crowd hang out. Bar seating area and the drinks are on of the best. Make sure you ask the server to explain everything. We went with a spice and a vegetation broth. Order more veg's and noddles. Beef was excellent. We didn't feel rushed.... More

I really love this place! You can try Chinese, Japanese or my favourite, the Mongolian hot pot. Prices are not bad and food quality is very good, the staff is helpful. Will be better if you can book a table in advance so you don't have to wait on line, sometimes is very busy during the weekends. Great place!

This is a lot of fun for either a business dinner or with a group of friends. We had 7 people and ordered 4 different broths. There was not enough food and we tried to order more sides of veggies and meat, service wasn't great and it was difficult to get more (even though we were on business with unlimted... More

We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly and attentive (no overly which was perfect for us). We each ordered a Lychee martini.... made perfectly. Having a limited amount of time, we ordered an appetizer and noodle dish. Both were amazing. Didn't know it but appetizers were 1/2 off because there is a happy hour here. Bonus! Food... More

Take this review with a grain of salt. We did NOT have the hotpot, which is what this place is known for. We had the sushi. The sushi was basically like the Denny's of sushi. Nothing wrong with it, but also nothing amazing about it. Wouldn't go back.

Thank Matt G

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences, visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler, and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide range of Asian food available, within easy access of South Station. At night, Chinatown becomes a late night food destination after the bars close.
