Best places to eat?
By - ChemBioJ
I've only gotten takeout but Sugar & Spice has been great for Thai food.
Indian food I like Surya and India Pavilion, with the slight edge toward India Pavilion.
I second Sugar & Spice for Thai and India Pavilion for Indian. For Chinese, Mu Lan is great. Ramen: Yume Wo Katare at Porter. Mexican: Tenoch at Davis.
Thirding India Pavilion!
Love Indian Pavilion, but the best \*meat\* samosas I've ever had is at Harvest of India on Mass Ave between Central and Harvard Sqs.
Alden and Harlow is really good, especially for a date night and especially for vegetarians. Area four has some pretty good pizza. Life alive is a fast casual staple.
\+1 for Life Alive!
The best local ramen I've found (so far) is in Brookline at Ganko Ittetsu Ramen.
Definitely try Punjabi Dhaba in Inman square for Indian food. Dumpling Daughter in Kendall is decent for some Chinese dishes. For a more robust menu, try Szechuan Garden in Brookline. Favorite Thai is S&I to go in Allston.
Thanks for your suggestion! Currently trying out Ganko Ittetsu Ramen right now :)
Boston.eater.com has some good maps and lists that are great guides.
I’ll contribute Felipes, it’s a local and student fav. Burritos are incredible and they have a nice rooftop bar too.
Thai: check out Mahaniyom (never personally been but friends have raved about it), dakzen, 9zaab, chalawan, and Mae Asian eatery
Mexican: taco loco, orale, and tenoch
Indian: surya is our go to takeout, Punjabi dhaba is good too
Ramen: hit up the porter square shopping area, yume ko watare and a couple of the other places there are great
Other good mentions: pita Cambridge, armandos pizza, p&k deli, bow market, sofra, sakana, elmendorf, formaggio kitchen
Other fancier mentions: pammys, Celeste, sarma, oleana, little donkey, table at season to taste, cafe sushi, Puritan and co, loyal nine
Pammy’s is very good
If you like Vietnamese, try Le's in Harvard Square. Fantastic & often overlooked.
check out El Potro
Santouka is good for ramen (Harvard Square and Newbury St). I lived in Japan for many years and it would hold up in Tokyo.
