True. They still have a good lunch buffet.

Indonesian market

Glad to be of service. Maybe there's a reason that the internet is forever!

Mughals' awesome buffet is lunch.

OP said Indian was out, but for future reference the Indian vegetarian restaurant across the street, behind the Auto Parts place, has a Wednesday evening buffet, different region each week - Ritu Ki Rasoi.

Seafood dump on the table in Boston

If you're looking for Chinese style seafood, a taste of "home," there's plenty of it in Boston Chinatown.

Lunch near Mt Auburn Cemetery

Word on this board is that the Cuban place, Gustazo, is about to close and move to Waltham. If they're still open, it's an excellent place, but call and make sure.

Noodles & Co opens in Burlington

I stumbled in there yesterday, and agree with the general lack of enthusiasm. On top of everything else, the traffic pattern in and out is very inconvenient.

Acitron in Arlington?

I'll agree on Acitron. Its main advantage is that it's not a chain restaurant: the atmosphere is quiet and everything is cooked to order, which justifies the slightly higher price, IMHO.

As for Tango: their main dishes from the grill are enormous. For two average-appetite people I would suggest one main dish and two or three appetizers and salads, which would also leave room for dessert.

Mr. Chan's in Burlington

OK for a quick lunch if you're in the neighborhood. Not a destination.

They have a good variety of noodle dishes in both lunch and dinner portions.

Restaurant reviews on Boston.com

The reverse is also true. I have an online subscription and a few months ago they threw in the Sunday paper for no additional charge.

Ethnic brunch buffet on Sunday morning?

Too late for this year, but I recently had a good Mexican dinner at Acitron on Mass. Ave. in Arlington Center and saw their weekend brunch menu. Looks good on paper, but I haven't tasted it myself. Has anyone else?

Ain't nothin' but a ghee thing, baby!

My Indian friend would agree that US Indian restaurant cooking is unlike anything that most Indians of whatever region would eat at home.

Then I guess I'll never know. Perhaps they cooked special for her?

She is a native of Maharashtra and has lived all over India. (army brat and civil servant)

My Indian friend who spent the fall semester at the Harvard K School opined that the only local Indian restaurant that came close to authentic was the Royal Bengal near MIT. I hope to get there myself sometime soon.

Ben's Kosher Deli from NYC coming to Boston

Sorry - I was thinking about an earlier deli thread discussing Mike's, which is not kosher.

Ben's Kosher Deli from NYC coming to Boston

Be warned that Rubin's is strictly kosher and (thus) rather pricey. But they've got the goods at their deli counter, including chopped liver!

Ginger Exchange (Symphony)

The problem is that most people are in that area for a show and want to eat dinner first. At a really good restaurant, people want to linger and not check their watches all the time. Two different kinds of clientele.

Moody's Delicatessen and Provisions

Dinner in/near Burlington - help for a NY 'hound!

Bedford, the town next door, has Dalya's. Nice atmosphere, always some vegetarian options, frequently a North African dish or two. The menu changes frequently, so what's online may not be exactly what they're serving when you get there.

Lamb Dinner

If you're going as far as Lowell, La Boniche has an excellent lamb shank.

I am hoping that when Wegman's opens I will be able to get to it. The Msx Tpk is a parking-lot already!

Symphony 8 Space

Is there a restaurant open in this space now? What do they serve? Any opinions, good or bad? The usual conundrum about where to eat before tonight's concert...
