My wife and I both moved to Cambridge recently and have tried a variety of places. Caesar Martini's in Waterloo was certainly one we could recommend. Lively atmosphere with a unique interpretation on modern cooking techniques.
It appears that Family Style restaurants are the primary focus in this area, and with that in mind, there are some excellent asian options out there, especially if you focus on the independents that have some superb variations on traditional themes. Some of our favorites here are Red Papaya, Red Basil, The Mayan Grill (Mexican in Cambridge). All of the above have menus online and can be easily found on the web..
Hope the above helps and bon appetit,
